Roya’s December

Roya hit a few milestones in December.

At six months old, we introduced her to baby food. Rice cereal, carrots, apples and bananas weren’t to her liking, but sweet potatoes and oat cereal were thankfully winners!

Mmm...sweet potatoes!

Roya saw her first snow.

Prepared for the elements!

On the third Sunday of the month, our family lit the Advent candle at church. The minister commented that Roya is quite the flirt and clearly likes being the center of attention. Wonder where she gets that from?!?

Roya attended her first holiday soiree — the Ladies Holiday Luncheon at Peacock Cafe! Although she wasn’t feeling well following the flu shot, she still relished in all the snuggles from her aunties! (Special thanks to Auntie Andrea for the invite!)

Roya’s staple holiday outfit was a simple red corduroy dress from Baby Gap with matching bloomers and white tights. Nana also got Roya a pair of beautiful baby Stuart Weitzman shoes. (They ended up in Roya’s mouth rather quickly, though.)

Roya perfected the military crawl!

After such an eventful year, our first Christmas with Roya was nice and quiet.

2013 ended with Roya’s first cold. (I know it’s a parental rite of passage, but it’s still never easy to see your child feeling poorly.)

New Year’s Eve found us asleep long before the ball dropped!

How did you ring in the New Year?
