Happy Half Birthday Baby Magic!

Today Trinity is 6 months old! I can't believe how fast time flies! You always hear people say "Cherish the time you have with them." And you really should! It does not seem like there has been time for 6 months to go by! Even through the sleep deprivation...time really FLIES!

This little darling is such a joy! Even on the days that I just don't feel like it (it meaning any and everything) she looks up and my mood changes.

So, what is she doing now? She's been experimenting with food. I'm doing a mix of pureed food and the Baby Led Weaning approach. I'm really only doing the pureed food because I have some at home. She likes getting the spoon to her own mouth and picking up food on her own. The girl is independent! So far she has had bananas, avocado, Lima beans, black-eyed peas, a chicken drumstick bone, buttery crackers, baby food carrots and pears. She tasted a meatball but wasn't fond of it and threw it on the floor. OH she has also had chili because she snatched my spoon out the bowl when I turned my head (see picture below). She seems to love chomping stuff down and there usually isn't anything much spit out. I'm going to start trying to give her one meal every day. So far it has just been sporadic. BTW, with the beans and peas, I smoosh them between my fingers and put them in her mouth as she doesn't have the pincer grasp down yet. (Beware of the poo-poo that comes after beans!)

The Great Chili Heist!

Bananas and water (Ikea cup)

Pears in mesh thingy

She's trying to sit up on her own and boy is she getting there! She also likes to lunge at me lol. I haven't seen her do this to anyone else so maybe it's her way of showing affection LOL. She also likes to grab my ears and growl at me...I think in her mind she is giving me a big juicy kiss! I love it! 

We are experimenting with sippy cups. I haven't bought a straw cup yet because I'm scared she might swallow too much air. She's not a fan of the sippy cups yet though.

Just look at those dimples!
So that is what we've been up to. What have you guys been up to? Because I think all of the faces she makes (mostly learned from her grandpa) are hilarious, here is one wishing you a happy week!

Pura Vida!

Hey y'all!

I keep making promises to do better about posting and then I break those promises. So I won't make any such promise this time!

I wanted to give you all a little run down on a trip I recently took (and LOVED). Two of my sisters and my two best friends and I decided to make a run for the equator. To Costa Rica! We started planning pretty early and got tickets and such purchased. We stayed in Jaco (pronounced Haa-CO). I'm still not sure I'm saying that correctly. You should have seen the looks on the immigration officer's face when I pronounced it as it is spelled. I'm pretty sure he called me an ignorant American.

Anywho, we flew from Charleston because they had the better fares and schedules at the time that we booked. Charleston to Miami to Jan Santamaria Airport. Something happened on our flight and me and my bestie were asked to move to another seat. It was actually better seats than what we had. Since we were so accommodating, we were given some l…

New School Dating

How many single readers do I have? Are you struggling with dating? No? Good for you! Yes? Why is it so hard?! Sigh.

Well, I have several thoughts on that last part. Mostly, I'm glad that it is not just ME that dating is so hard for.

Online Dating - Dating sites specifically.

Y'all, I signed up for online dating and almost instantly regretted it! I paid for a month and cancelled my subscription after two weeks. What are you really here for? Who sent you? Those are the questions I wanted to ask most of the guys that messaged me. Mostly they just lurked on my profile. Like, don't you know these sites tell me when you view my profile? I can see it. Why aren't you saying anything? Do I have a boob hanging out in one of my pictures? Phew, no I don't. Sigh. So yeah, that got nowhere. I'm impatient, I know, but online is not for me. Clearly it works for some people though. I find that if you will lie about the simple things, it will be impossible for me to trust you wit…

Baby No More, Baby Magic is FOUR!

Like seriously, where did the time go?

She was just a wee little thing yesterday! Now she is sassy, independent and full of honesty. Like FULL of honesty. She knows nothing about your feelings so she doesn't give 2 cents about hurting them. The kid just tells it like it is. And I hope she never changes.

I decided not to have a party this year. But guess what? It turned into a party anyway! Friends don't let friends eat cake alone apparently! It was awesome! The night before I baked her cake. She refused to go to sleep so I let her decorate some of the extra cupcakes. She insisted on licking ALL the frosting when we were done. When she finally went to sleep, I hand pumped what seemed like a thousand balloons - and my carpal tunnel is still yelling at me about it. I put the balloons on the floor in her room so she would be surprised when she woke up. She was! She woke up singing "Mommy, it's morninggggg, it's my birthdayyyyyyyy!" She's so stinking cute!
