Parenting is wonderful, fun, fulfilling, and completely disgusting!! Children are so messy! As a parent, you find yourself in situations where you want to have a "Get Out of Jail Free" card. Sometimes I just don't want to accept the fact that I really am responsible for cleaning up the mess.

Today after church was a perfect example. I had just been admiring how cute my daughter looked munching on her little waffle (a first for her), and I went over to clean her face and hands. But as I lifted her out of her seat, I discovered that pumpkin waffle was not the only thing I was going to need to clean.

I'll spare you the details....

Adriana actually rather enjoyed the whole experience and had a lot of fun getting cleaned up in the laundry tub.

On a cleaner note, Adriana is now seven months old. This month she has:
  • cut two teeth
  • learned to army crawl
  • finally said "Da-da" (after saying "Ma-ma" and "ba-ba" for awhile)
  • learned to wave
  • become a full blown baby food connoisseur
  • learned stand by herself by holding onto a chair or sofa
  • found out that high-pitched shrieking can make the guys in your life pay attention
If only every month of my life held that many discoveries!

  1. Too much detail in the first photo (yuk!). Will this appear in a video on her wedding day?


Don't be shy, share your thoughts!
