Isabel started eating solids officially today! She has tasted things here and there (Mike is always giving her a bite of everything - soups, ice cream, chocolate - as you can see things that she could be highly allergic to, but it's better not to argue with him, you know him!).
We weren't sure if she was ready for solids or not, but this last week we were at Grandma's and she had made some delicious pea soup. I gave Isabel a little taste and she loved it! She was really impatient in between bites, and she definitely let us know she is ready for some real food!
So today I cooked some yams (that Grandma gave us also) for her. Again she was a very good eater; no ugly faces or anything, she was even patient this time. I'm excited to make lots of yummy baby food for her!
By the way, I don't have my Christmas pictures yet, but soon I'll be posting them!

Today I was rumaging around in my closet and found the cable that goes from the camcorder to the computer. So, I transfered all the film that we've done in the last few months of Isabel and will be posting a few segments over the next little while. This first one is a video of Isabel and Sean. If any of you have met our friends Mike and Lori this is their kid. Enjoy!

I can't believe how fast they grow! Isabel is already 4 and a half months. She is already rolling, laughing (sparingly though), and almost sitting up by herself. She loves to sit and play with her toys. Another great trick are her fake coughs. She looks at us and does these little fake coughs to get our attention, it's hilarious!
Things are going great here. We are excited for Christmas. Mike is very excited to get his presents, he is just like a kid!
We loved spending Thanksgiving with some of you guys. It was too bad not everyone could be here, but we enjoyed spending time with the ones that were.
