5 Months

Yikes - she's really 5 months old. I can't believe she's that old, but on the other hand it seems like she's always been a part of our lives. It's funny how time works. She has recently rolled over a few times, but other than that not much new has happened. Hannah is fun and keeps us entertained, below are just a few of her funny expressions.

She gives me this look a lot. Iwonder what she's so concerned about?! :D

Candy Bar Cookies

A little bit of this...

mixed with one of these...

makes these yummy candy bar cookies!!

I took these pictures horizontally and they show up on the computer horizontal, but when I put them on the blog they turn vertical. I don't know why and I don't know how to change it. Urg. Sorry.

New Ride

James needed something for work (and we've been home long enough), so we decided it was time to buy a vehicle. We are the proud new owners of a Nissan Pathfinder. I never thought we'd own an SUV. We're usually the type that goes for a smaller, more gas efficient car. But, James needed something he could haul tools in for work and we wanted to be able to seat a family in it... so SUV it was. It's painful to pay for gas, but other than that we've really liked it.

Happy Hannah!

So, the first couple of months everyone would ask me if Hannah was a good baby. Hello, she is my 1st and I have nothing to compare to, so I basically have no idea. After a few months of experience and watching other babies around me I've decided that Hannah was kind of fussy. Not scream all day and night fussy, but always hungry and wants to be held fussy. I got sick of holding her all day and never getting anything done. When people would tell me I was lucky I had such a good baby (she always seemed to be good during church) I kind of wanted to poke their eyes out. But, the past month or so she has gotten so much better. She can sit in the bouncy seat or swing for a few minutes and be content. She smiles a lot at us and doesn't fuss nearly as much. It's amazing. She really has become a happy baby! Hooray. I actually agree when someone tells me I'm lucky. Now, I just need to master nap time.

Don't you just love this adorable hat?

My friend made it. I just love it. She has tons of other designs and does custom orders, too. To see them go here:
(If I knew how to do it you could just click on the word "here" and it would link you to that page, but I don't know how to do that. Sorry. If anyone else does, feel free to share with me.)

I think her hats are so CUTE!!

Doesn't that just something you wouldn't want to eat? Luckily you don't have to. I decided to try my hand at making some baby food. I didn't want to make too much just in case it didn't work or she doesn't like a certain kind. So, I cooked and pureed a small squash and some carrots we already had. It was pretty simple and a lot cheaper than the store bought baby food. Let's just hope she eats it!

Sweet Deal

We have planned on getting a jogging stroller all along. I just haven't been able to decide on a single or double wide one. The fact that it's so cold outside now and that they're so darn expensive - I decided to wait until Spring to get one. However, this beauty was only $10 at a garage sale. Wahoo!! All we had to do was pump up the tires and it was ready to go. Can I just say that I LOVE it! A whole new world of afternoon walks has opened up to us. I'm just sad that there won't be too many days left to enjoy it, but until then, it's great!!
