There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think, "I'm obsessed with you!"

Sloan and I went shopping a couple weeks ago for Jodie & Shea's wedding gift. Usually I lug her in her car seat and stick her in the main part of the shopping cart, which doesn't leave much space for purchases. But as she's is getting older sitting in her car seat isn't her idea of fun. So we broke out the Buggy Bagg and she had her first ride in a shopping cart big girl style. She wasn't sure about it at first, but once she got the hang of it she was checking everything out and flashing smiles at everyone. I don't think she'll be settling for the car seat method in the future. I wasn't sure about the Buggy Bagg but I'm sold due to (1) the support it provided since she wasn't quite sitting up on her own and (2) the germ factor, the entire cart in her reach was covered.
Ever since she was born, Sloan has had total control over her eyebrows. I bet I could look through our pictures and find several with faces similar to this one. She has a regular babysitter and the first time she met her she said, "She has very expressive eyebrows!" Isn't that the truth! She wasn't the first one to notice and I'm sure she won't be last.
We made it to the green veggies and peas were a success! She isn't sure about green beans and broccoli. She did like cauliflower (I know it isn't green :) ). We only have spinach left to try. Her favorites besides peas are apples (fuji, not granny smith), pears and sweet potatoes. She has also had butternut squash, acorn squash, pumpkin and carrots. I'm excited to start mixing flavors and trying new textures next week.

Don't get me wrong, this blog has been hijacked by Sloan. But I thought I'd toss in a photo from our home. This is our bedroom, minor remodeling in here. We painted and this is a very un-staged photo of the accent wall. I like it a lot. Our windows catch great light all throughout the day. One day I'll finish the Turkey recap, if I can still remember all the details. Until then it's mostly Sloan with a little house, other, miscellaneous mixed in.
We started baby food earlier this month. She wasn't really into it at first. We made it through the orange/yellow vegetables and she enjoys most of those now. We are just finishing fruits and she isn't crazy about many of them. Hopefully we'll get our act together and get through the green veggies in the next week (or so...). She is a dainty little eater, which might explain why she has been such a great baby. I'm starting to understand that an infant eating every four hours since birth is very impressive. This picture was taken October 6 with my iPhone, lighting isn't the best but I love the look on her face.
