Well, we've been giving Lucy cereal and applesauce for about a week now. Tonight, she LOVED it, finally. It has been pretty hit and miss with her on the food front, where sometimes she seems to like it and other times she has acted like we are torturing her by giving her something to eat (other than momma's milk). Here are a couple of pictures that we took the other day after one of her first meals.

Many of you may know that one of my biggest hurdles has a parent has been grocery shopping. By this I mean that I am extremely overwhelmed by trying to do my grocery shopping with my kids. These feelings of grocery anxiety have come at different times in my parenting adventure. After Christopher was born I think I only look him with me to the grocery store once in the first six months of his life. The same has pretty much repeated itself with the arrival of Lucy. Not to mention, with two kids it is that much more overwhelming to think about trying to handle both of them and concentrate on getting all of my groceries. My friend Jonna has three kids and seems to have this task down, but for me it is one of those things that I just haven't gotten a handle on.

We ventured out to the Plano Balloon Fest this past weekend. We had a good time despite the traffic, crowds, and long lines. A potty trained child sheds new light on these situations, ie. sitting in traffic having him kicking the back of my seat as he is trying to hold it with no where for us to go, was just an added thrill to our night! We ran into our friends the Newmans while we were there and had a good time battling the long food lines with them and baby Nora, who is such a cutie pie!

We had Lucy baptized on Sunday at our church, St. Andrew United Methodist. The service was lovely and we were blessed to be surrounded by lots of family on this special day.

Doesn't this picture look like I took my 5 month old daughter on a roller coaster ride?

Christopher started back to Mother's Day Out today. This year he will go on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 - 2. There are 9 kids in his class with only three of them being girls, so I'm sure he is going to have a great time. His teacher seems pretty nice and he came home today with a smile on his face! What more could a mommy want?
