finally decided to figure out how to eat her baby food. After almost two months (though I have to admit I have not been extremely consistent) she finally finished a bowl of oatmeal cereal at lunch. For weeks, she has loved tasting the food and then smiling while spitting it out. Ei-yi-yi.
I am SO excited. It was beginning to be painfully tedious.
Yesterday, she began to clap! It's soooo cute! And last week, she started waving and scooting forward on her tummy a bit...anything to get one of her big brother's toys.
She's growing and changing so much...we just adore her!

The neighborhood developers are in the process of putting in a road and getting more lots staked out behind us...so our view is/will be changing. But I am enjoying it day by day.
Soon, we will put a fence in the back and landscape a bit and--oh, the most important thing, to my little ones--the playground. We are excited about the yard...lots of room for the kiddos to play...to have some flowers (you know I'm going to try hydrangeas here!)...and enough room for an herb garden too, which has been my request for the past few years. Little by little. We are looking at buying some trees because you know we love our trees. The only thing missing will be mountains, but I'm getting used to that. (Not happy about it, but used to it.)

--celebrated Katy's graduation from Baylor University, along with my family and much of our extended family! (Congrats again, little sis!)
--moved into our house! (Finally, right?) We love it. We're unpacked for the most part, with the exception of pictures that go on the walls, some decorative stuff, and the garage boxes. We've got lots of room, so come and visit! (More pictures to come of the interior...I promise, Shawna.)
