Now that Maggie's six months old (almost) and showing interest in food other than the boob we decided to take the plunge and feed her rice cereal. Yum, yum. For those of you who haven't had the luck of trying it before, it basically tastes like watery flavorless goo. And Maggie, not having much to compare it to, loves it! Her first taste of cereal was Saturday and she dove for it at each spoonful. We thought she'd push it out of her mouth, but this girl ate it and wanted more.

Fast forward to Tuesday. After Chad set up Maggie's high chair we plopped her in it for an evening snack. And without a hitch she was at it again.

Merry Christmas!

What a difference a year makes! Last December we announced to our family and friends that Chad and I were expecting a baby in July. Newly pregnant and excited about the year to come we had no idea how much our lives would soon change. Now we are here with a new baby girl, happy and healthy as a family of three. We couldn't be happier.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Another Milestone!

Last week Maggie stood on her own for the first time. Of course we put her there, but she was able to support herself and stay put for a little while without us holding her up. Now if she'll just learn to sit independently! We're working on it...

San Luis Obispo

This past weekend Chad, Maggie, my parents and I spent a long weekend in San Luis Obispo. We had a great time and really love visiting that area when we can. Chad and I met when we were both living there (11+ years ago) so there's an extra fondness for us because of that. This was Maggie's first trip there and I'm pretty sure she loved it too. We know she liked seeing Santa (smart girl). Most of our time was spent in San Luis Obispo but we also walked along the bluffs at Montana de Oro and hit Morro Bay for lunch. Another great weekend that went by way too fast.
