Your now 16 pounds and 26 inches long! So big, I can't believe it!
You've started to eat stage 1 baby food and so far have had sweet potato, bananas, squash and peaches. You really liked the veggies but didn't care much for bananas and REALLY hated the peaches! Your also sitting up all on your own like a big girl! No more swing or bouncy chair for you! You love your Johnny jump up and you just got a walker AND a hop-n-pop! You can only walk backwards in the walker but love to hop-n-pop!
We are going on a big long trip with Grammie and Grampie in a couple days to Long Island. This will be your first trip away from home and daddy! Daddy's cousin Tina is getting married and you will meet many new people and relatives. They will all just love you! I know I do!
You started to say Mumma! Its the most beautiful thing I've ever heard!
I love you baby girl...please stay a baby forever?
