Eatin' it up...

Kendra has recently started eating rice cereal. Very fortuitously for us, a friend in the ward was moving away and had a high chair among a few baby items to give away. As it's the perfect timing, I snapped that thing right up! I was amused by how small she looks in this huge honking chair...but then I remember that she is only four months old.


She's picking it up very quickly, though. And she gets quite enthusiastic about it as she reaches out and seems to want to give a go herself...


Though that ain't sayin' much as she pretty much puts anything she's able to pick up right in her mouth. And if she can't pick it up to put it in her mouth, then she just swoops down to put her mouth to it!

We have some fun with it.

Though I have learned that we don't have enough of 2 things: bibs and wash cloths. We can just barely make it through a whole week--but that's only because these first couple of weeks we're only doing it once a day.

We have a special toy for "Sleepy Time" and she only gets it when it's time for a nap or to go down for the night. She's Lilly Lamb and she was a gift from my great-aunt Susanne. Kendra loves Lilly Lamb--when I hand it to her she takes her and nuzzles her face into the soft fur. This week I went in to check on her and found her like this.


All cozy with Lilly Lamb. I've seen her start to rouse from sleep and reach out for Lilly Lamb and pull her close and konk right back out. Pretty sweet.

And speaking of sleeping habits--does this face remind you of anyone we know?


No lie, I've seen her sleep with her eyes open too. I'll be sure to grab the camera next time I notice it.

But no matter how she sleeps, at the end of the day, she's our darling little girl.

I love her snuggling her lamb and sleeping so peacefully. She looks so big in the high chair. Such a growing up girl. Slow her down!!

Oh so cute! Simeon's sleepy toy is a lamb too, how fun. He now has a lamb and a dog actually and wraps his arms around both and hugs them really tight when he goes to bed. I love to see them sleeping.

I love the precious picture of her sleeping. Yeah I gotta see a picture of her sleeping with her eyes open! It is so fun when they first start eating and experiencing all these new tastes.

I can't believe how fast she is growing up! The sleeping pic is so cute-Haddyn's lovey (as we call it) obssesion is my FAVE. I cannot wait to see her sleeping like her Mommy and staring at you from the depths of the unknown! Ha, ha!!
