Rice Cereal

We introduced Fiona to rice cereal on her 5 month birthday. I would like to say this was her first taste of solids, but someone (ahem, Chris) may have let her taste such foods as watermelon, ice cream, sugar cookies...

Fiona - 5 Months

Fiona is 5 months today. I love her rolly polly-ness and layers of chub. She has the sweetest, pink cheeks, and Chris and I are all mush when she smiles at us. Her big milestone since last month is learning to roll over, which she does frequently in her crib whenever I set her down (but not at night). She controls her neck better but can't sit up by herself yet. She's out of her 3 months clothes, and even some 6 month clothes are getting tight. The flatness on the back of her head wasn't severe enough to warrant a helmet so we are just trying to get her more tummy time.

I like to call this picture, "Why I never get anything done"

Chris Turns 30

Chris turned 30 on December 2. I'm six months older than he is and am always happy when he catches up with me and we are the same age. We celebrated quietly with dinner at Travail in Robbinsdale with Rob and Allison on Saturday.

On Sunday, Chris' actual birthday, we had an easy day. One of the gifts I gave him was an oyster knife and cut-resistant gloves, so we stopped at Whole Foods and completed the gift with a dozen fresh oysters that Chris shucked and ate at home.

Here's the play-by-play:
