I can not believe that Tori is already six months old! What an amazing journey! She has changed our lives so greatly, it's already hard to remember life before she was here. I love watching her change and go through all the little phases. She is getting such a personality. She's such a little explorer, she can roll all over a room now and check out everything within reach. She smiles and giggles at the dogs, especially when they're tussling (she loves to watch them play). She loves to eat! Her favorite foods are strawberry yogurt, fresh pineapple bits, baby oatmeal, and peaches. She hates squash and makes the funniest faces when you try to get her to eat it. She still sleeps about 11 hours overnight and takes 3 naps during the day but we have been slowly going down to 2 naps lately. She's such a happy baby, we're already forgetting how hard those first few months were. She made us a family and we love her so much!
I think I felt a bump......oh, sorry daddy!! Haha Brian provides hours of endless entertainment.
Yum yum, crab legs!She can hold herself up in crawling position for a few seconds but tends to roll instead of trying to go forward. This lip is how she'll get her way when she's older ;)
She's such a dainty drooler!
We built a castle a few days ago. Princess Tori and her loyal subjects played inside for about an hour. Daddy crashed the party.
Standing at her table full of toys. This thing plays over 50 songs and speaks english and spanish, it's pretty impressive!Mommy and Tori playing on our laptops :)
Both of Tori's bottom middle teeth have come in! They're still hard to see but they're getting bigger every day. She cut them a week apart and they made her so sick! She's had a double ear infection, a sinus infection, and thrush in the past month. We're finishing up our second round of antibiotics and she seems so much better now. I'm so happy to have my little cuddle bug back.
Little Miss Tori has learned how to roll to what she wants to play with. Yesturday I was pumping in her nursery and I had her lying on her belly on the blanket. She started on the corner farthest from the window and over about 15 minutes rolled a good 6 feet to play with the curtains. I couldn't believe it! I loved watching her face as she figured out she was moving all on her own. Today she saw a toy a few feet away and went for it! Its too funny to watch. We're working on getting a video to post.
We had a small family get together on New Years eve. Here are a few pictures of the shenanigans. Its was pretty tame with some snacks, games (blitz, catch phrase, and a new game called wits and wagers) and a champaigne toast at midnight. We had a great time!
Tori's first Christmas was wonderful! We had the Painter celebration Christmas eve and morning, the Davis Christmas that afternoon, and the Simpson Christmas the day after. It was a crazy few days filled with lots of gifts, games, and spending quality time together! We were so happy to have Scott, Catherine, and Braden stay at our house for a few days. They're back in Texas now and we miss them already!!
I met my husband at the ripe age of 16, we were dating before my 17th birthday, engaged at 18, and we were married at 23. He is the best man I have ever met and I am so blessed to be with him. He moved to St Louis with me while I finished college, then we moved back to our hometown in Central Illinois and started our family. We were blessed with our daughter July 21st 2009 and our boy/girl twins February 2012.
Our two and a half year old is our little princess and lover of all things girly, from shoes to make-up to dresses. Such a funny kid who's favorite saying is "snif snif, I smell pumas!." She loves to hide from dragons and run from pretend spiders. She keeps us on our toes all day long until our favorite time of day: hugs and cuddles at bedtime.
His is our little trooper. He rarely cries and is such a sweetheart. When he is awake he just stares at you with his big dark blue eyes.
She is our baby girl and she knows it! She is her big sister all over again! We can't wait to see how much she will end up looking like Tori (she looks just like her as a newborn). She's a little dramatic, but we wouldn't expect anything less from a Davis girl.
