A month of "firsts"

Daci turned 6 months old on August 21st! She has had a lot of "firsts" this month.


She went to her "first" football game on August 21st and loved it. She watched her Uncle Tannon play quarterback in Lone Peak's first game of the season. These are pictures of her at the game on her dad's shoulders and after the game with me.


She held her bottle and fed herself for the "first" time right around the 1st of August. She is so cute when she holds her bottle! The only problem is she wants to play at the same time as eat so she will roll over onto her tummy and try to drink her bottle at the same time...doesn't work so well :)


She went over the 50th percentile in weight for the "first" time at her doctors appointment on the 21st. She used to be in the 50th percentile for weight and now she is in the 73rd percentile! What a chunker! She is also in the 90th percentile for height. Are you surprised with her gene pool though? I'm sure not :)

She started scooting around for the "first" time on August 17th and now we can't take our eyes off of her for two seconds! She scoots for everything she can't have and won't go for the stuff that she can :)

She started eating solids for the "first" time on August the 19th. We started her on bananas and she loved them. Then the doctor told me to make sure I give her lots of vegetables along with the bananas so that she doesn't just prefer the sweet fruits. We have given her squash, which she liked okay and then we gave her sweet potatoes yesterday. She LOVES the sweet potatoes :) The night before I started her on solids I gave her some juice out of a grape to see what her reaction was. It was pretty hilarious and we thought we should share it.

I can't believe how fast our little grandbaby is growing up! It must be time for another one. And since you are my only married child that must mean you need to get busy! Don't forget, you have a minimum of at least 6 or 7. tee hee. Love you!

She's way cute! I wonder what she would do for a pickle! :) That stinks that they aren't looking for english speaking!! dang! I think I found out about my old points...BUT i have a different question about the new program. (i'm sure you wished you never mentioned he worked for jet blue eh?!) :) i see that it's 8 points per dollar spent (for amer. express holders)...is that for just purchasing flights or anything? THX SUGAR!! By the way...where you guys living?

I can't believe she is scooting around already! Jayda is a slow poke compared to what daci can do! I guess she really hasn't had a bottle to practice with! I'm just going to start Jayda on solids too. We'll see how that goes. the videos are so cute! Can't wait to see her again.
