First food that's not entirely from Mommy

On Christmas Day, a week shy of 6 months, after a month of her trying to pull food off my plate, we decided to try a bit of solid food just to see how she liked the texture and to give her practice with the spoon. I admit it was bittersweet. How could my tiny little baby suddenly be old enough for solid food? Until now, her entire diet came from me. It's hard to describe, there was just something special about that. It was weird putting something 'foreign' in her mouth!

As for how she liked it, well....

The spoon wasn't interesting enough, she had to go for the whole bowl.

A brief break in San Francisco

Fredo goes to SF every December for a conference, so we decided to tag along this year. I don't know why people say it's always foggy there, every time I've been there the weather has been gorgeous. This time it was just cold. Angelina loved it, but that's just because Mommy was holding her ALL DAY LONG. Good thing for slings!
And lucky us, we got to hang out with Elise for a bit.

Thanksgiving Road Trip

We spent Thanksgiving at South Padre Island, the souternmost tip of Texas coast, near the Mexican border. It's a 5ish hour drive from San Antonio. Have we told you how much Angelina hates driving???? Here she is before we left, still happy. She's not a road trip person I guess.

The weather and the water was fabulous! It was Angelina's first glimpse of the sea and she was mesmerized. She wouldn't take her eyes off. We didn't take her swimming, but she loved every minute there.

From there we went to McAllen, Texas to visit the Bentson Bird Refuge. It's supposed to be a 'World Birding Center.' We met this old guy whom we're sure was Swiss tho we didn't ask. His accented sounded Swiss German and he was just goofy enough to be Swiss. He told us the place used to be full of birds, but they cut down a bunch of trees last year and now, nothing! It's possible the lack of birds was also due to the drought. A bit unfortunate, we've seen more birds in San Antonio. But we did see the Rio Grande and though we didn't cross into Mexico, Fredo got a glimpse of it. Angelina seemed to enjoy her hike at least.

More pics to come.
