5 months old!

I can't believe Adelyn will soon be 6 months old! It kind of makes me sad....I love her being a little baby! She is changing all the time...every day her world gets a little bigger! She is sitting up and improves daily. She can sit up good for about 30 seconds and sometimes can sit up and look around the room without toppling over. When she falls, she's totally unphased. It's so funny that she doesn't cry. She'll land crooked on her tummy, straighten out her legs, and play with whatever is in front of her. Speaking of, she always wants whatever is in front of her, whether it's hers or mine. She loves to have something in those hands! She's so curious!

We have started feeding her rice cereal. We tried it for the first time Oct. 24. She didn't do so hot the first time, but is getting MUCH better! I give it to her after the noon feeding. I mix the cereal with breastmilk and she seems to like it. I plan on making my own baby food, so it will soon be time to start making fruit and veggies for her!

She doesn't feed herself....she's just playing with the spoon!

Seth and I took our first trip (just the two of us) without Adelyn at the beginning of October. We went to his last race and year end ceremony in Monterey, CA and then spent a couple days in Sonoma. I missed Adelyn tremendously. However, we still had a wonderful time and it was good for Seth and me. It was also good for her. I truly believe a happy home is a happy mom and dad...not just happy baby! She can be a bit of a momma's girl. I'm with her all the time and I'm her food source. I'm happy that she loves me so much, but she needs to be able to stay with others. She was with my mom, brother, Martha, and Seth's parents. From what I hear, she did great! That pleased me to no end. We were grateful for all their help an knowing that she was in good hands. Here are pictures from our trip:
