Yay for milestones!!!

Miss Fiona would like to share a few firsts with you!!!   She's been quite a busy girl lately.  I should start by telling you that she now weighs 11 lbs 12oz and is 23.5 inches long.  She has gained another pound and grown almost another inch in the past month! 

She rolled over all by herself for the first time on July 16th.  Her Uncle Matt and myself were there to witness it.  Here is a video:  Fiona rolls over

We also went swimming with Fiona for the first time this past weekend with our friends Sarah and Justin Halulko and their little boy Liam.  Fiona loved it!!!  Her swim diaper was a bit too big, though, and I was just praying the entire time that she wasn't going to poop!!  How mortifying would that have been?! LOL!!  Thankfully, she held it in :)  We had a really fun time and we can't wait to do it again.  Here's a picture from that day:

Fiona also ate her first solid food today.....rice cereal!!!  She did really well! We were pretty amazed, and we also captured it on camera  :)  Take a look.... Fiona eats solid food

Another thing that's been new for us lately is Dave's change of employment.  He will be leaving EDMC soon, and will be going to work for Target in HR.  Because he's changing jobs, he's had some time off. Therefore, he's had the opportunity to use some of that time and stay home with us.  Bonus!!!  Here are some photos of he and Fiona spending some quality time together:

Dave also got some fresh ink this past week.  He decided to get Fiona's footprints and her date of birth in Roman numerals on his back.  Here's a picture of it that I took just today.  It looks a little distorted because he's holding up his shirt and it's stretched out a bit, but you get the idea :)  It turned out really great.  The footprints are really realistic!!  I love how you can see how her little left foot was so scrunched up when she was born.  Pretty cool!! 

Soooo, that's about all that's new with us!!  We'll keep you updated as more things happen, which is bound to start happening pretty rapidly now.  Thanks for checking in!
