So I thought I would post an update on us. we're all doing great other than colds again. Gabriella is getting so big now, she is 5 months old and weighs 13 pounds. We started her on solids last week with a bit of cereal and she hated it. It didn't dawn on me till yesterday that she probably doesn't like it because I was putting formula in it. so I expressed some milk for it today and she liked it. I also started making her baby foods as well and started her off on carrots...she can't get enough of the carrots. She is always grabbing at the spoon.

We decided to change rooms for the kids and we put the boys in one room and Gabriella in the small room. I still have some things to put on the walls and I'm painting some pics for her walls, other than that, the rooms are done. I'm so happy we did it, the boys have a blast sleeping together and Ethanael no longer needs his night light. Gabriella sleeps in her crib now, I was so sad to move her out of our room but my dh has been snoring so loud he was keeping her up at night.

Can't remember if I wrote here, but I did get my new visa for the UK so I am now a UK resident. Also, sent off for Gabriella's British passport and got it back yesterday so now she is legal to travel both ways since the US doesn't recognize dual citizenship.

Other news, we finally bought our tickets for our trip to Pittsburgh for 4 weeks starting at the end of July!!!! I can't wait for Gabriella to meet her gram. It won't get here soon enough though.

I hope all of you have been well. I still come in to read but sometimes don't have time to respond. Here are some pics, ok, lots of pics.
