V turns 6 Months Today!

Dearest V,

Happy half birthday love! You are growing so fast. Today you officially can no longer be left on the playpen as you can now sit up!

Your wandering little hands are now reaching and trying to grab everything within grasp. You now hit our shoulder full force with you right hand as we carry you in our arms.

We celebrated your half birthday today by taking you to take your first pictures with Santa Claus!

1st Christmas Tree!

Dearest V,

Big day today! We went to the Christmas Tree farm to cut down our little family's first Christmas tree together. This is one of the promises I had made: to start special traditions with your arrival. You loved it!

In celebration, we took you to the park for your first swing experience. You had a total blast.

Just so many memories we are making with you. Love you from here to the North Pole little lady. Thanks for being with your grandpa most of this past week giving him much needed TLC.

Happy 25 Weeks! Eating Solid Food Now...

Dearest V,

Your development is on overdrive! You are 25 weeks today and you are grabbing everything in site now with your two little hands. I mean everything.

Your big milestone today was that we gave you your first taste of real food. Carrots nonetheless but food not breast milk. You loved it!

Later in the day we gave you some water too which you loved. I guess having only breast milk to eat for 5 months can get boring.

Love how you are now all smiles and react to our facial expressions. You are a total queen as grandma calls you!

Victoria's First Not Good Day

Dear V,

Today was Sunday and what started as a lazy day of continued unpacking and playing with you most of the day turned ugly for you at the end.

It first started with the bloody Mickey and then with the loud bang at 2:15 in the morning.

Love seeing you grow and the big developments you are going throw on a daily basis. But some of those clearly as the saying goes will make you stronger.

You're a strong and feisty little girl. You bring so much joy to our lives. Trust that we will continue protecting you and being there when things are not always perfect.

Luv you more.

Ears Piercedat 5 Months!

Dearest V,

This was a special weekend. You turned 5 months. We took you to finally get your ears pierced. You took it like a champ. Yes, your mom cried more than you did.

Today you are exactly 22 weeks old and took you to Disney California Adventure for the first time. You loved it!

You are starting to completely roll over now and getting up with your knees as if your ready to crawl. You are getting stronger day by day.

You are also starting to explore our faces and grabbing and pinching. You now reach out to glasses and food we eat. Your inquisitiveness is going from your sight to your hands.

Your uncle Jerry and Christina took off to Miami Friday morning. Another big milestone as they are moving and doing the cross country road trip. You will miss them as they liked hanging out with you.

Love growing up with you.

First Fever!

Little Lady,

You gave us a a scare today. You had your first ever fever clocking in at 102.4

You were cranky most of the day but my mom was here to help us out with you. Your little body was hot yet you were smiles all around despite the fusiness.

All this was caused because of your second round of vaccines from yesterday. Seems like you have recovered this evening.

The big debate now is what to do with your sleeping arrangement. Whether to bring your crib into our bedroom or not as you have outgrown your bassinet!

Vaccines!

Miss V,

As you can see. My letters to you are not as frequent. That's because the last several weeks have been quite busy now that you are in our life.

Today was a big day though. Grandma came to babysit you at home whe we cleaned the house. Yeap, we need help. Later she went with us for you to get your second round of shots! You cried but quickly recovered with your happy face and squirms.

Your Mom's bday on the 9th was epic!

First, you outgrew your infant seat and we put in the next baby seat. We also took you to Disneyland! You loved it!!!

You are gaining a lot of strength. In fact your growth is now that of an 8 month old and you are only 4 months!!!!!

Doctor today measured you at 27 inches long and weighing a bit over 15lbs.

You are a worm in bed and in your stroller chair. You love to twist.

More later love, Dad has to catch some zzzzz's.
