tis the season

So I am not a good blogger anymore. Sorry. I know everyone reads mostly for Josie updates...this is the latest on my little elf.
*She turned 6 months old last week.
Geez la weez. I remember this time last year thinking I will have a 6 month old. I never imagined how fun it would be, nor how difficult.

*Big girl... long and lean.
She weighs 17 1/2 lbs. And is the 95%tile for her height. Tall and skinny I hope... like her dad.
We are struggling in the "in the middle" stage with her carrier or a carseat. We go back and forth a lot.

The pediatrician told us... Josie has an advanced.. pincher grip. That would be the thumb and the pointer finger. We continue to laugh about her being advanced...with the pincher. That's my girl.

*Oatmeal and Avacado.
Josie is doing great with her food and opening her mouth. However, I am already annoyed at the extra time it takes. Dang it we can't nurse exclusively forever.... was so easy.

*Look out..
"the jos" as we like to call her is on the move. She is sorta crawling... it just doesn't look like crawling. But she can move from one side of the room to the other like a champ. We are currently coming up with theories for blocking our heaters (this would be a negative of an old house.)

December has been a busy month for us. Mom's b-day, KC's b-day... he is 24, (I can't believe it.) the many Christmas parties, home renovation (hallway) and my tutoring (finals). But all and all we are doing well. Looking forward to our trip to Orlando after Christmas.

new things/ old things/ cute things

A lot has been going on in the Masterson home...literally. The last two weeks we have not been here much, due to re tiling our bathroom floor and Thanksgiving. Re tiling your bathroom floor when you only have one bathroom = a big deal. So the whole family went to stay at my parents house. Tough when our life functions are in Atlanta. The back and forth was killer. But of course we loved spending time with family.
Before After

The pictures don't do it justice. Let's just say that I will actually be able to clean the floor and it will look clean, whereas before that was not possible.
Yippee! You become so thankful for running water when you don't have it.

Josie is up to all kinds of new things.
* She has been up on all fours for about three week now. Rocking back and forth.
* Not far behind is always....Mr. Thomas. They are holding hands now.
* Big girl chair. She loves it. We started rice cereal. I know... I am a little late but with all my homelessness I could not add one more thing to my thought process or suitcase.
* I should have blogged about this awhile ago.... Josie loves the sling. Grocery store, festival, church, voting, doggie group.....she loves to be in the sling. I love it too.
I will hopefully be better about posting, since we are back home.
