We celebrated Greta’s 5 month birthday a few weeks ago! She has been very busy this month learning to tripod (sitting while leaning forward when there are toys in front of her) and teething. She wants to chew on everything, including her fingers! We’ve set up a little play area in our family room, and she loves the mirror. Apolinaras and I love to dance around, sing, and make faces at her. We will do anything to hear her sweet giggle!
We also bundled up and had a lot of fun exploring during the recent New England blizzard. I enjoyed watching little Greta gazing at everything covered in snow – you could see she was trying to figure out what happened!
Whenever storms hit, I make sure to stock up on fun snacks. I’ve been a little addicted to the Archer Farms Zen Party Trail Mix from Target, so I decided to mix up a similar version with my favorite ingredients for a fraction of the cost. I combined cashews, sesame honey almonds, sesame sticks, and wasabi peas. So easy and tasty!
