Blowing bubbles and eating carrots

A couple more videos for you guys.

This is a recent thing Daphné started doing - it's hilarious!

Daphné's first solids =) yum!  As you can see, she LOVED them.

We are so thankful for this little life.  She brings the joy of Jesus to our hearts.  Also, we can't wait for her to meet her cousin Rowyn who was just born on June 20, 2015.  Welcome to the world Rowyn.   Good job sis!

Doc & park

I've learned that a few of you can recite some of these blog comments by heart... that inspires me to keep posting.  Let me tell you - 2D Daphné is cute, but 3D Daphné is the BESTEST!  Speaking of... I can't wait for my mom and dad to hold her in just a few days.... EEEEEEEEK!!! =)

First visit to the doc's office for a cold.  Someone told me that it could be because she will start cutting teeth soon - oh boy!

Daphné with her auntie Lotta // Outfit from Allegro's + Dente's.

Outifit from Caroline.

These jumpers are such a great idea for warm weather.

Another jumper from the Finley's.

Orange is fun to change it up a bit.

Sleepy feet.

At the park again with Mama.

New shorts.

Love that noggin.

Sitting all by herself.

Always looking off to where the activity is - many kids playing.

Daphné tidbits

A few photos for your enjoyment!

Mommy-daughter time at the park again.

Philip, Daphné and I were wearing stripes on Sunday [Steven is the baby holder.]

And she's down for the count.

"Mama, mama, look, I'm in a big kid stroller."

 Her favorite household entertainment - who needs TV or computers?!

Papi stopped by to get his dose of vitamin Daphné.

Her first solid food - ha !

Her face was hilarious the first time she put it in her mouth.

Time with Daddy.

The 9th of June, this little bundle of joy turned 5 months-old.

We can't imagine our lives before this precious gift from GOD.  We are truly thankful for our daughter Daphné.

Daphné's first time swimming

We are so proud of our little Daphné !!!

Getting ready in the greeeeeen locker rooms.

Super cut bathing suit. 

And cute bathing cap.

Real men wear speedos.

Our sweet family.

Weeeeeeeeeee !

She's so cute in her Daddy's arms.

Ready for take-off.

Doesn't she look like a natural?

I'm laughing because she's sucking so hard on my hands.

Little dolphin, as Tata Cricri calls her.

On the back.

Raising a kid is such a partnership, and I have the BEST partner and BEST kid.

With the instructor, who is a midwife.  She knows a few things about babies.

Crab, yum !

Last time Daphné was in this pool was in my tummy for the pregnant lady swim classes.

Can you tell she had a blast?

Cozy in her towel [Thanks Auntie Michelle and Jillian.]

Tonio and I are so amazed that God has entrusted us with this little peanut.  We look forward to many more trips to the pool and many more adventures of discovery.
