Last night, Savannah Kate tried her first bite of rice cereal!  She seemed very excited about trying something new to eat.  She's been staring at us while we eat lately so it seemed like she was ready.  I'm not sure she actually swallowed any of the cereal, but it was fun to practice using a spoon.  After awhile I finally put the cereal in her bottle so that she could actually get it down.  I swear that was the fastest I've ever seen her take a bottle and she was smacking her lips afterwards, so I think she liked it.  We'll keep trying everyday with a spoon so I'm sure it won't be long until she figures it out!

While we were visiting my family last week, I went to Wye Mountain in Bigelow, AR with my mom, my sister and her 3 boys (Carter 7, Caden 3, and Charlie 6 months).  There is a huge field of daffodils that blooms there every year and it's a great place to get some beautiful pictures.  Caden was being really silly in most of the pictures and Carter just loved holding Savannah Kate and being so sweet to her.  Here are some of my favorites:

Last Tuesday, Savannah Kate and I boarded a plane to Little Rock to spend the week with my family.  This was her first flight and she did great!  She just looked around at everybody during the flight and never made a sound.  I had been worried if being in the air was going to hurt her ears because she had just gotten over her very first sickness, RSV.  It was so sad to see her sick and knowing that I couldn't do anything to help her feel better.  I was so thankful she had gotten well in time for our trip.

While we were visiting Savannah Kate turned 5 months old!  She is now just under 12 pounds, wearing 3 month clothes and size 1 diapers.  She seems to really notice her surroundings now and is very aware when mommy leaves the room.  She loves to watch us eat - it makes her laugh everytime!  She is only a month away from being able to start eating food.  She loves to watch Belle run around and loves grabbing her toes.  Tonight she was trying very hard to get them in her mouth!  It's a trick that she learned from her friend Luke today :)

Here are some pictures from our trip:
