I have posted about 3 new post. So sorry it has taken me so long to post something. But with me being in school now, I don't have to much spare time.

Homemade baby food

Marlee has started eating solid more and I have always wanted to make her baby food. So this weekend I started so I would have a little supply going. I made carrots (as pictured), apples, sweet potatoes and pears. It is super easy and cheap. I spent $4.79 and made about 64 servings of baby food. That equals about .07 cents per serving which is alot better than .79 cents per serving when you buy the jars of baby food.

6 months old

Can you believe it has been 6 months since this little angel has been born? I can't!! Marlee is the best baby ever. She is always so happy and smiley. She is also super sweet. It is true she is 6 months old. I don't know how much she weights. We haven't had her 6 month check up yet but she is still long and skinny. She can still fit into some 3 month clothing but she is mostly in 6 month clothing. Here are a few things about our growing girl.

* She no longer needs to be swaddled. I thought it was going to be a scary transition but she really did it all on her own. It is so much not to do any more too!!

* She just recently (about 2 weeks ago) started sleeping through the night. That's right and it is so awesome!!

*She is starting to sit on her own. She can do it for several minutes at a time but that's about it.

* She is talking more and more! She doesn't really laugh.

* She loves watching Your Baby Can Read videos. She always gets the biggest smile when you start it.

*She loves music, any type of music. It is really funny because music will be playing on a commercial and she'll stop what she is doing and start watching TV.

* She also loves solid foods. So far we have tried bananas, apples and avocados. She did not like the avocados as you can tell in the last picture.

* Marlee loves giving hugs and kisses when you get her from her nap. She will grab each side of your face and then plant a open mouth kiss on your cheek. It is so cute.

Marlee's friend

We had a few people over for the Super Bowl. We got invited to a couple of parties but with my school schedule, I was too tired to go any where and it was just easier to have a couple of friends at our place. This is one of Marlee's friends that came over. Her name also starts with a "M" and she is only 3 days older than Marlee. It was so cute to see them together. If you take a look at the last picture, you can see them holding hands.

Marlee really really likes other babies. If she sees on at church, she instantly reaches for them. If she sees one on TV, she gets really excited. I think she is going to be a social butterfly but I wonder where she gets that from.
