I love my daddy! Oh and my new activity center! :)


Stella loves her new activity center! Her feet can touch the ground (barely) and she can rotate herself (barely) around the middle part and play with different toys. She wants to be mobile and explore so she enjoys being able to manuever around in it.

Rice Cereal!

No, I do not want any more rice cereal!!!
I sure can get a good grip on my teether though!

We started rice cereal last week and she's not a big fan...now she'll at least swallow it though compared to last week when she would spit it all out! Progress! She's finally sprouting hair also. Albeit just a few, but again...progress! They are funny because there are just random hairs here and there but they are definately hair and not just fuzz!

Giggles!

We were throwing popcorn in the air for Missy to catch and Stella thought it was hilarious! I finally got a few giggles on camera! :)

Flower Power!

This video probably won't be very interesting for most, but my mom doesn't get to see the little things she does so I try to post little everyday things so she can get to see her in action! For some reason she has taken offense to the flower on her changing table! :) She gets it in a choke hold between her legs and kicks it with her foot. Sometimes it's hard to change her diaper because she will start swinging both her legs and Mario couldn't seem to get it on last night. It was funny! She can really get it going. She does it even more then in this video but of course when I try to get anything on film she see's the camera and won't cooperate. Now if I am taking pictures, she'll pose.

Happy Spring!


The last week has been beautiful 80 degree weather and I must admit it is giving me spring fever! Yesterday Mario finished work early and headed home so we decided to take advantage of the nice weather! We headed to the beach to get some natural vitamin C for a few hours, it also helps that we are less then 15 minutes away from this beautiful white sand!

Chili Cook Off!



We set her beach tent up and she loved it! She even took a nap in it. So nice! As you can tell she was rather comfortable!




She loved watching Aubrey build a sandcastle!

Saturday we spent the day at St George Island which is where we got married. It was a beautiful day and about 80 degrees down there. It reminded me of the week of the wedding and how many good memories we have there. It was such a great week and so wonderful to have all these special memories with all of our family. It made me a little nostalgic!!!
They were having a big chili cookoff festival there last weekend. We walked around for a while and sampled some chili then headed down the beach a bit and set up camp where it was a little quieter. Stella had a great time and was so good, she even took a nap in her tent. Aubrey took a walk on the beach and her and Mario built sandcastles. Everyone got some sun (except Stella Roo) and had a relaxing, fun day at the beach!

Stella the little ham...


Am I cute or what?
Roarrrrrr!
Stella is SO funny! I was getting her dressed yesterday and she was posing for me. We are convinced she already knows when mommy wants to take her picture and I think she figures if she just cooperates it will be over quicker! ;)

She's now caught on to grabbing the toy and inserting it into her mouth. She would grab things before but couldn't quite make her mouth. Just last night she started copying me. If you make a motor sound with your mouth/lips she will do it back. Mostly bubbles come out, it is quite funny. She was cracking up Mario this morning with the new trick! We are going to the beach at St George Island tomorrow. There is a chili cook off and it is going to be 80 degrees so we are going to hit the beach after we grab some chili! Yay!
