my adorable pop-sicle. this is from last week, i know i'm late, but i have had to be a sloth:) in all actuality today kalliope is 6 months old, 24 weeks, february 9th. but i'll tell you about last week. she had started sitting up a lot better and sitting herself up when reclined and correcting her posture. i bought her some brandt zwieback toasts for her to chew on during our snowmageddon, it was her first finger food. holy cow! she trembled she was so excited. she's had peas, carrots, butternut squash, oatmeal, apples and bananas. she and i also went swimming before the snow hit. we went to the Y and she wore her little blue fairy swim diaper and we took a dip. she took a big ole shocking gasp as we hit the water and i immediately hugged her tight for security,and after that she calmed down and we kicked-kicked-kicked up and down the pool. her face even went in the water couple times, that shocked her a little but she was a trooper. juni swam for her first time with aunt carrie and i in that same pool many years ago. popi has not touched the snow, unlike her sissies. i guess that is only my fault, i don't want to be out there, so i'm not taking her. well goodness. i might have to put her in her snowsuit and have a picture or 2, huh? this IS her first snow after all.
