Palomar Observatory

July 15
Ryan's been super into watching space/universe stuff on Netflix, so we decided to go up to the Palomar Observatory. I had never been before, and it was neat to see the massive telescope and the pictures they have from it. There was a bit of a reverence I felt seeing how the universe all comes together and how tiny we are.

6 months!

Weight: 16.3 lbs
Length: 27 inches

When did she get so old? I think I'm in denial.

This month Lexi:
- Sprouted up to the 70th percentile in height
- Turns in circles on her tummy
- Blows raspberries on her arms
- Officially doesn't like green beans
- She is losing her baby belly, probably because she is getting so tall
- Shrieks at people walking by in the store.. funny but kind of embarassing sometimes :)
- She is very skeptical of the doctor.. I think because he laughs pretty loudly.

Halfway to ONE! :)

Happy Birthday Ryan!

Ryan has been really wanting to go hiking at the Santa Rosa Plateau, so we went for his birthday. Lexi is finally big enough for the backpack and had a lot of fun looking at all the trees and grass.

and... lizard.

We finished up the weekend by heading up to Big Bear with Ryan's family. We had fun fishing and playing a mad game of Apples to Apples. :)

I love you so much Ryan! I am so grateful for all the hard work you do for our family so I can be home with Lexi. You and Lexi have such a special relationship and I love watching you two together.

- Lexi is still having a little trouble rolling back to her back
- We will probably start baby food in the next 2 weeks.. cant wait! :)
- She sleeps from 830 - 7 but isn't a great napper

- She is getting better with strange people (mustaches, sunglasses, etc)
