Our family has been very busy! Our little one on the way is now in week 9, has a strong heartbeat, arms and legs, and is 1 inch long! Stella is growing everyday and is now 7 months old! She is clearly saying her 'd' and 'g' consonants, "da da da" and "ga ga ga". She has the sweetest little voice and we love to hear her "talk".
Sunday in the Park
We took Stella to the local park. It was a beautiful, windy day and she loved playing in the sand, and trying to eat it!
Stella and I went to eat lunch with Marla and Sara. We had a really nice time and Stella and Marla even dressed alike!
Lucas and I love to go downtown on the weekends and look at old buildings, homes, and our local sites. Below is a picture of Stella and Lucas on the Baton Rouge levee. The ship in the background is the U.S.S Kidd.
This is a really cool, abstract painted wall near the levee. I love that Stella is pointing to 'Baton Rouge'!
Lucas and I both love to swim so it is very important to us that Stella feels comfortable in the water! Last Sunday, we took her to the indoor pool at the YMCA to swim. She loves splashing in the bath, but this was her first time in a real pool (or as Lucas told her, a really big bathtub!) There were a lot of kids playing with beach balls and having a good time. She loved watching them and loved the water!
