My girls

Hubby and I have recently been talking about how fast time flies. Any parent out there experiences this feeling. It seems like it was just yesterday that I held my first daughter in my arms for the first time. I look at her baby pictures now, she was always so skinny and tall! I LOVE her long legs. :) I used to think, how in the world did we have such a tall baby? She has always been 75-90% for height. The doctor predicts she'll be about 5'8 when she's an adult (I'm only 5'4).

Anyways, now we have a 2nd daughter. Who is growing up WAY too fast. I mean, seriously, wasn't she just born!? Now here we are, she's 5 months old. CRAZY! Talk about crazy, I thought my firstborn would be my big baby. Boy was I wrong! This little cutie here is in the 95% for height and weight. :) My little solid chunk! I'm allowed to call her chunky b/c I'm her mommy. ;) But I am really getting sick of people telling me how big she is. Or "What are you feeding her?" Should I put my 5 month old on a diet to satisfy stupid people?! I think she's absolutely perfect!!

On the 5th we started giving her baby food! Big sister insisted on being the first to feed her, it was so sweet. :) I wanted to wait another month to start her on food, BUT our children have the weirdest bowels, so from firsthand experience with my first daughter, and per the doctor's advice, we started her on solids to help her out. :) She wasn't sure what to think at first, but now she LOVES it! So far she's only had bananas.. This weekend we'll try pears.

Are't they awesome!? I just love my little beauties to pieces! I know I am SO blessed, my heart is full!

  1. I think her chunkiness is adorable! People always tell me to feed my son more b/c he's skinny. It bothered me at first, but now I just smile and slowly walk away. People need to mind their own business-I think you're doing a great job feeding her :)
