Back to the Beach

We had so much fun at the beach, we decided to go back in May. This time Stella Cate was 6 months old and sitting up (still wobbly, but sitting up). The weather was perfect! It wasn't too hot, but definitely warm enough to swim. Stella Cate loved the water. She loved kicking her little baby legs in the water like a little frog. It was so funny to watch her splash in the pool like she does in the tub. I have a baby fish on my hands. She is the sweetest thing in this whole wide world.

Adventures in baby food making

Stella's well baby checkup went very well and we got the ok to start baby food. I still had wedding credit at William Sanoma so I bought a baby food maker that I had my eye on along with a cookbook for babies and toddlers. I made my grocery list and then we headed to The Fresh Market. I love love my Beaba baby food maker and I really like making Stella Cate's food. I feel good about the fact that I can purchase yummy organic fruits and vegetables to feed SC healthy foods with out all of the added preservatives. We are trying one thing at a time to make sure she does not have any allergies. Although I tasted the sweet potatoe puree and it was yummy, I decided to start with squash and it was a hit. I wish I could say the same a about the sweet peas, haha!

Beach Baby

Stella Cate and I were really getting cabin fever from the long winter months and cold weather so on a whim we decided to jump in the car and head to the beach. We met my sister-n-law, niece, and mother-n-law. Stella Cate was 5 months old and my niece was 3 months old. It was definitely an adventure but we got the hang of it and really enjoyed the change of scenery.

Enjoying the beautiful weather
