Reese has been eating solids for about the last month or so. But, it wasn't until just the last week or two that I started to introduce her to real food, rather than just rice cereal. We started with sweet potatoes and then bananas. As I started with the baby food, I would say "Mmmmm, yummy" with every bite, hoping that she would be more accepting of the new tastes and textures. Reese is a pretty good little eater and practically lunges at the spoon when she is ready for another bite. The funniest part, though, is that she now does the "mmmmm" sound when she gets a new bite. It is hilarious! I will try to get in on video. Can you tell this girl loves her bananas?

book party

While we were in North Carolina a couple weeks ago, my sister-in-law Lindsey found a local bookstore that was hosting a launch party for Breaking Dawn! We reserved our copies and went to the party just before midnight to participate in the festivities. There was a station to decorate some sweet masks (I'm not sure if the Masquerade theme has anything to do with the book, but that was the theme that the host chose for the party), a station where you could get your astrology birth chart, and also a station where you could have a Tarot card reading! How could we resist?! It was pretty funny to see only about 6 people at the party when we arrived--the last Stephenie Meyer function I went to had about 1,000 people in attendance. But, it was quite an experience and I was really glad we went...and am even more excited to read all 754 pages of Breaking Dawn.

Reese rolls

Reese has been practicing rolling from her tummy to her back and occasionally from her back to her tummy for a few weeks now, but she usually waits until no one is looking. Yesterday, she finally seemed to really get the hang of it and was rolling all over the floor--even when I got the camera out! Michael and I could not help but laugh when she would make little noises trying to get her bottom shoulder out from under her. Listen closely on the second video for Reese's little grunt when she didn't make it all the way over on the first try. hilarious!
