Sophia 365

A few days after I had Sophia, my mom mentioned that it would be cool to take a picture of her every day for her first year of life on the same blanket.  And, well, what do you know?  I actually thought that was a great idea to document her growth day by day.  So, when she was 5 days old, we started this tradition, and I am excited to say…I haven’t missed a day since! It’s crazy looking at all these pictures.  Every day, it doesn’t seem like she is getting any bigger.  But looking back at the first…

Sophia likes apples!

We’ve been giving Sophia “real” food for about two weeks now. Week 1 was rice cereal, week 2 was bananas, and week 3, as of yesterday, was apples. She has loved everything we’ve given her so far!

When I told him that is not normal here, he was a little surprised. Sophia’s pediatrician will pierce ears, but they won’t do it until they are 6 months old. We really didn’t want to wait that long because by the time she’s that old, she’ll have a lot more control of her hands and will be able to mess with them. So a few weeks ago, off we ventured to the mall to…

Sophia’s first experience with “real” food

At Sophia’s 4-month checkup last week, the doctor said we should start her on food sometime in the next few weeks. She said to try giving her rice cereal for a week, then start introducing one new fruit or vegetable each week after that. On Tuesday evening, we decided to let her try a little bit of rice cereal for the first time. I opened the box, and while I was trying to pour the recommended “approximately 1 tablespoon” for the first-time feeding, I proceeded to pour about two cup’s worth in a one-cup bowl. That extra cup ended up…
