Rosie is back!

I wish they would update the Blogger app, I can't manage the blog properly without it. Rosie's fans need their fix! :)

Innovative Teething

 Purple cabbage makes a good teething toy!
 But it's not as much fun as double-fisting broccoli! Mama lets her chew on anything that helps.

9 months in, 9 months out

She destroyed the sticker that says 9 months, so you will have to take my word for it.
She was sent home with a stomach bug, but never showed any signs of slowing down, so we took advantage of a warm day to play outside. And discovered she likes to eat pine needles.

Howdy, neighbor.

I'll Allow It

She looks a little too much like Barrett in this shot, but it's so cute, I will have to get over it.

Shadow Play


We decided the pumpkin patch could wait until next year, and opted instead for some free poses with Downtown Vicksburg's curbside decorations. SuperGirl Rosie complied nicely with this request.

She may not be allowed to touch the sound bar  and TV equipment behind her, but she can dance all she wants while dressed like an adorable skeleton.

She doesn't get this from me

I doubt I ever smiled like this while wearing a fussy dress and tights. :) She loved it!

Resilience on Road Trips

Hotel beds are the BEST!
Dinners out can be a challenge, if at all possible, enlist unsuspecting friends and family to do the feeding.
We brought along some of the "bowl of joy" toys that she loves yet are small enough to lug around.
I noticed on the way home, she was seriously considering hitting the bottle. Who wasn't, to be honest?
 But we made it just fine! And home toys never looked so good, she played quietly for almost 30 min.

7 months--the photo drama

Should I smile NOW?

Check out my teeth!

Too much flash. I look like a vampire.

I can hardly believe it myself...7 months!

Relax and smile.

Backing it up

Sometimes she creeps herself into places she didn't intend to be.

Resembling Rosie

Finally! Some baby pictures of Barrett that look a lot like Rosie. 

She enjoyed getting these pictures by phone...though we know she is too young for electronics. 

So close...

We are not ready for a mobile baby! Child proofing moves to the top of the to-do list.

Comfort comes in many forms

She is not huge on the pacifier, but she sometimes likes her thumb. This is her new favorite.

Rosie is six months!

She is sitting well, but still needs support. Shots went well, but Dr found she has infection in both ears. All told, she is a happy baby who smiles a lot, squeals and vocalizes often. Oh, and her first tooth is visible though not emergent just yet. Weighing in at 17 lbs 10 oz, she is very healthy and really enjoying solid foods.

Do you think this is EASY for me?

Learning to crawl has resulted in some frustration for the young Rosie. Luckily, her dog and her mama are willing to lay on the floor with her as cheerleaders.

Center Stage

Tabletop baby so everyone can see. She seems pretty comfortable!

Hooray for Sleep!

Thanks to prayer, carrots and rice cereal, this sweet girls sleep patterns are finally improving. 
That's something to celebrate!

Sous Chef Rosie

Countertop Bumbo + Happy Baby = enjoyable meal preparation 

(Dog at feet to consume any dropped food helps too)
Friday is usually our " fend for yourself, don't expect me to cook" nights, named by our friends Julie and Nate as "No A game Friday" but this week we managed to save some energy for dinner.
Rosie had to eat as soon as she got home, but once she was partially satiated, we got started. Barrett made the starter, but the main course was fish packets with veggies and a citrus ginger sauce. They were a hit! We will definitely make again, but more of them. It was a light "spa" type dinner and our patriarch was still hungry after his.
