In an attempt to ween McKenna from her sleep sack swaddle I had not been swaddling her for naps for a few weeks. Well last night I took the plunge and did not swaddle her for bed and she decided to sleep on her belly and enjoy the flip side. I think she enjoyed the freedom and no swaddle will be our new normal, I guess it was about time since she is almost 7 months old!

Life is full right now and that is such a wonderful thing. It is full of lots of laughs, smiles, silly games, some tears, new adventures, arts and crafts, learning and lots of new adventures. I sure do love these days and that is why I have been absent because life is FULL!

Baby girl has now assumed her place at the dinner table. With the start of solids in the near future, I decided to pull out the trusty high chair so baby girl could get use to it. At the present it is nothing more then a place to sit in and play but come Saturday she will start joining us to eat her meals, as the adventure in solid eating will begin!

At the mere age of 5 1/2 months my girls smile is no longer gummy. She is by far my earliest teether, so to say I was a little caught off guard is an understatement. I found two teeth close to the surface this week and by the end of the week both teeth were finally through. I suspect said teeth have been coming in since late November/early December since her sleeping habits have been horrible since then. Now that these teeth have broken through sleep has returned to normal and this makes all involved very happy. I am still shocked she has two teeth since the boys were at 9 and 10 months when theirs first appeared. I really need a pause button to slow time down, but alas time moves on and milestones will continue to come.

Only in Alabama are we wearing shorts on Saturday and Sunday and then by Thursday we are playing in some honest to goodness snow! I am so glad the weather men got this one right because rest assured I had one 4 year old who was dead set on playing in the snow today, thanks to his teachers he was aware that it was a possibility!
I decided to cut quite/nap time short for everyone today, I must have lost my mind, but I didn't want my kids to miss out on a chance to play in the snow especially since it might be years before we get anymore. We all got dressed in what we consider winter gear in the south and we headed out. I have since decided that I need to invest in some rain boots for Coleman too, tennis shoes were not a good option, he came in with some very cold and wet feet!
Fortunately Coleman didn't seem to bad off as he was kicking and screaming when we came in because he just wanted to stay out and play. God love this child he is the easiest going little boy that there ever was and his very wet feet did not bother him one bit, he just wanted to play like big brother!
