Bennett is 6 months!

Bennett turned 6 months old last friday! She is an ever changing bundle of joy!
Some things that Bennett can do are:
  • Crawl (army crawl... it's all arms!)
  • Roll over both ways
  • Drink from a bottle (this took us a long time to conquer!)
  • She knows her name
  • She smiles and laughs a lot!
  • She is on a 3 nap schedule
  • She loves playing... her favorite toy right now is her brother's firetruck!
  • She takes a pacifier now... for awhile she sucked her thumb but I wanted her off of that!
  • She wants to put everything in her mouth
  • She enjoys her johnny-jump-up a lot!
  • She is very ticklish!
Yesterday Bennett had rice cereal for the first time and tonight we tried carrots... here are some pics!Her first bite of rice cereal... she likes it! Happy girl after eating! Always sticking out her tongue! It's been a busy month for us... sorry I don't write more often. I'll end with a very silly family pic, minus Bennett (she was napping).

Signs of Fall

You know fall is here (not that there was a question!) when your yard looks like this:
That would be my backyard after I raked this afternoon. I ended up filling 11 bags! Here's my yard after... We are renting this house and are very blessed to have a yard at all... but you'll notice how there's no grass! Because the house is so close to the business next door and the large tree cover, sunlight does'nt cover the entire yard, therefore grass does'nt grow. Needless to say it is very muddy! And here are my shoes after raking in my muddy yard... I think I was almost a whole inch taller! All in all it was a productive day outdoors! I still have my front and side yard to rake, but the weather is supposed to be great through the weekend! And I need more bags!
