Always something new?!

The juggle of baby, work, life and now a move continues!
Lo makes me smile a 1,000 times on a daily basis.
Whether she's laughing or performing a new trick, I seriously just can't get enough of her.
As I've already blogged, we started our food journey with solids.
A combinations of laziness, exhaustion and the dauntingness of opening the box to my Baby Brezza, had Lo eating rice cereal and mashed bananas for a few weeks.
BUT one day, I finally opened it and it's seriously the easiest, most genius machine I've ever used in the kitchen.
Wash, peal, chop, add it to the machine, select food type, press a button and it steams and purees the food into a perfect mush!
First Adventure- Sweet Potatoes...

Baby Brezza is from William Sonoma.
Buy yours here.
 
25 minutes later my masterpiece was ready.
 Bought these little gems at the Pump Station.
Perfect little portions for freezing.
 Lo approved!
Obsessed with her new little tongue out funny face!

In other news:
She's getting so big, we had to move her from the infant tub.
This inflatable tub is awesome!
She loves it!
Buy here.
Sitting up, a little skeptical about it, but getting better and better at it each day.
Pink basket in the front of this pic is her favorite toy at the moment.
Grandma Bon Bon does research and buys her the BEST toys.
Buy here.
I was worried she wasn't getting enough liquid with just breast milk and wanted to be sure she wasn't dehydrated now that she's having solids.
She refuses anything out of a bottle besides BM, so someone recommended one of these sippy cups with the soft spout.
She can hold it herself and LOVES it.
Bought it at the Pump Station as well.
We frequent there, as you can see.

That's what's new here.
Looking forward to a move next month and ALL the holidays this Fall. 
Lo makes life complete!

XO,

Are you sure she's 5 months already?

Can somebody freeze time or at least slow it down a little? PLEASEEEEE! 
Our lil LoLo Bug is growing up in TOO fast! 
Long gone are the days that I can rest her in the nook of my legs as they are up on the coffee table and stare at her cuteness.
She wants to be movin and a shakin at all times. 
If she could crawl, stand and walk, she would.
Our adventures with food continues... just introduced peas and they aren't so Lo approved yet, but we'll keep trying.
She LOVES her Rainforest Jump-A-Roo.
When we first put her in it, we had to stuff burp cloths all around her, she couldn't touch the ground and barely did anything. 
Now we are down to one burp cloth and she goes crazy playing and touching all the sensory toys around it.  
It's amazing to watch her become more and more into various toys and books.
 Have I mentioned how much she LOVES her feet? 
She can even put both in her mouth... so talented, she is.
We couldn't be more in love and proud of our baby girl.
In October, our next adventure begins, as we move into a little house and neighborhood.
Looking forward to having sunlight and a yard... and of course a red door! 
Bye, bye apartment living and Brentwood, it's been a nice ride, but we're growin up!

Rolling over, starting solids and so much more!

It's been a busy busy fun summer watching Lo grow!
Each day brings something new.
Whether it's discovering her voice and making all kinds of sounds, trying out rice cereal or rolling over, we are always on our toes with what's next?
Trying to keep up and not miss anything while enjoying every minute is a tough business for mommy and dada.
 First stop with solids Earth's Best Rice Cereal:
Verdict- Lo Approved
 

Before                                                    After
 
She went on her first plane ride to Seattle to meet her 2nd cousins and went to her 1st wedding.
 
 


We are blessed with a baby that has an incredible disposition. 
London is content staring up at trees, playing with her feet or being played with.
She goes to others with ease.
For the most part, she soothes herself to sleep and sleeps well.
(minus a few week stint of keeping mommy up all night while she was going through a growth spurt and developmental burst). 
Our sleeping beauty seems to be back on track. 
THANK GOODNESS!
 
Next stop on the solid food train: Veggies.
Will they be Lo approved?
Can't believe our baby is almost 5 months.
