5 on Friday

 I'm linking up with Darci and friends for 5 on Friday today. Here we go..

Sweater weather! It's finally cool enough (today) to wear long sleeves. I bought this sweater at Old Navy this summer on clearance and I've been waiting months to wear it.  Yay for Fall!

Speaking of Fall, I'm spending the day putting out all of my Fall/Halloween decorations today. This candle smells soooo good. I still need to get some pumpkins and mums for the front porch. I haven't decided how to decorate my pumpkins this year. There are so many cute ideas on pinterest!

I am obsessed with this salad dressing. I bought it on a whim at the store last week because it was on sale. I double heart love ranch dressing and put it on everything. This dressing has the same amount of calories and fat as light dressing, but tastes like the real thing. Yum!

Lately I feel like my hair is really blah. I'm thinking about going darker..but I'm kind of scared. I died my hair brown one time in college and I hated it! We'll see if I actually pull the trigger. 

My new favorite afternoon nap time ritual is watching How I Met Your Mother on Netflix. I can't believe I've never watched this show until now! It's so funny-I find myself laughing out loud. The only problem is, I'm not getting anything else done during nap time!

June: 8 months

June is 8 months old!

During this month's photo shoot, she was very interested in the blanket..

Silly girl! Paul likes to call her Curious George because she's so interested in EVERYTHING around her.

This month was another very busy one! We spent a weekend in Salida, CO for a wedding (June's first wedding)

And then June and I spent two weeks at The Turtle House with Hammy and Grits.

And on the way there, I swore off plane rides until she's 18. Thankfully, we had an empty seat next to us on the way home which made it a little easier.

first bike ride!

We had a lot of fun, but we missed Daddy :)

She is definitely a strong-willed girl! She gets really mad when she doesn't get her way or I tell her no. I have a feeling we are going to have our hands full when she hits the toddler years! 

June is still a great sleeper (thank you god!). We finally transitioned her from the pack n' play to the crib and it really didn't phase her one bit. She also went from three naps to two and she sleeps about 11-12 hours at night. I am one lucky mama!!!

June continues to love any and all solid foods! There really hasn't been a single thing that she doesn't like. I wish nursing was that easy! It continues to be a struggle to keep her interested when there are distractions around and she HATES being covered up when we are in public (which is one of the reasons why our plane rides were SUPER fun :) She also bit me while nursing...ouch!!!

June learned how to wave hi this month, which of course we think is adorable! She will copy us when we wave, but she'll also wave when we just say the words hi and bye. 

June is just so much fun! It's amazing to see her little mind at work. It seems like she changes a little every single day! 

Happy 8 months June Bug! We love you!
