A Month of Firsts

Wow, time sure flies! Wait, I keep saying that, don't I? *lol* Perhaps it's time for another blog-name change? Nah. Just kidding.

Jessica will be 5 months old in another week. She has had her first taste of solids. Plain ol' white-rice cereal, pumped up with DHA and probiotics (mmmmmmmm....). The very first real-food feeding was a family affair, with daddy holding Jessy after a few sips of baba to calm her down, and mommy actually giving her the spoon. She loved it. Since we don't have a fancy camcorder that I can plug into the 'puter like I can my still-camera, you'll have to bear my description. ;) Her expressions were priceless and while a few times she looked like she was going to cry, she trucked on, swallowing her mini-spoonful and smiling, all before opening her mouth toward a spoonful of cereal to start all over again.

ummmmmm... what is this STUFF??

ew. uh, ok, mommy and daddy... I've had enough for now. Interesting stuff, though!
Another first came along this past Saturday night at our locat fireworks display. Our city does them the week before July 4, which makes for more fun since we get to stretch out the celebration and have more parties. ;) But this year was more special than all others, as we had an extra attendee with us. Yup, Jessy saw her first fireworks Saturday. Her mommy, daddy and Uncle Jeff parked a ways away from the park then walked the rest of the way, which made for a decent workout after our picnic-style dinner under the sky (okay, it was at at table, but still...). They bumped into an old co-worker of mommy's, who recommended an awesome stake-out spot for viewing the fireworks. They took his recommendation and were very happy. The view was incredible (as is every year, from this park), even with the parking lot lights shining away behind us (they were the only ones not shut off).
Daddy! What's all the booming? Hold my hand!

As for the next first, that may be teething. Jessy was quite fussy yesterday evening and when I handed her her texturized keys, she went crazy holding them while rubbing her little gums on them. Of course, those teefy-weefies have been teasing us for quite some time now, so we'll see...

It's been at least 3 weeks since I have blogged. SRSLY?? Jessy has been keeping me on my toes as well as this working-mom crap, plus miserably-failing attempts at housekeeping. After all, who's gonna buy a cluttered house, right? More on that later.

As I stated, Jessy has done a kick-ass job of keeping me on my toes. She turned 4 months old on 6/5, but due to timing issues w/our doc, didn't get her check-up in til today...

Jessy proudly whipped out (ok, her mommy did...) her shiny, new plastic keys and began mouthing them immediately for the doc. Weighing in at an amazing 15 lbs, 1.5 oz, 25" tall and having a 16 3/4" head circumference, Jessy put on a spectacular show yet again for the doc. Pulling her head up 100%, she pulled herself on to her elbows and even sat up and stood (supported, of course). Hasn't quite mastered the bow yet, though. ;)

Oh, hi! Once again, Grammy dodges the camera...
She went to another party yesterday- this time for her cousin, M, who just turned the big one! They are 8 months apart, so I'm sure they will get to have plenty of playdates in the future.

Do I HAVE to??
