Pulling up, going home, and sweet potatoes!

Last Thursday, just before bed, Sophia was crawling around the floor exploring. Keith and I looked up from the couch and saw this head popping up from the other side of the coffee table...

The coffee table is no longer "safe." Now what?
The same night she also successfully sat up after crawling. Yesterday I left Sophia in the middle of the living room surrounded by her toys to check on supper and came back to this sight --

Sophia had crawled to Keith's shoes and had a shoelace half-way to her mouth when I returned. Guess the smell of feet and shiny silver pattern was more exciting than the toys! She's no longer a timid crawler -- she's fast!

On Friday we headed to Keith's parents for Sophia's 6 month pictures (to be added later) and Sophia had a grand time in her newest toy! Can you tell how much she likes it?

And a few Saturdays ago Sophia had her first taste of sweet potatoes. A few days later we decided to let her explore the texture with her hands in hopes that perhaps she would stop grabbing the spoon before every bite. It worked! Here she is after exploring -- and covering herself in sweet potatoes and oatmeal.

I love Sophia's smile after being caught getting ready to suck on a shoe! She's probably laughing, trying to decide which is more funny, "I got caught!" or "They want to take my picture now?...That shoestring MUST be worth checking out some more later."

She is so beautiful! Can't wait to see the little active one over Thanksgiving. She'll probably be walking by then.
