Six Months!!!!!

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 ;)
So sleepy!
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 :)

My First Teeth

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.

Rolly Polly

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.

Happy 2010

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!

Happy Holidays!

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!!
