First Solids

August 25, 2014 | We thought that you were going to be a breeze judging by your first attempts with food.  The Oatmeal ended up mostly on your face, but you did manage to swallow a few bites!  Even the formula that we received from the Dr. went down easy (different bottle/nipple and all)!  But after a stomach bug that caused multiple vomits — leading to multiple baths that night — all of that changed!  No more foods, cereal/oatmeal, or even the formula.  Causing this BF-mom to stress big time.  But if we started strong, surely you will come around again soon?

6-Month Dr. Appt

August 22, 2014 | We knew what was coming…the dreaded next round of SHOTS.  You always handle it like a champ, but that doesn’t make it easy by any means!  This time we received a free book to encourage reading (it’s pink, with big photos) and you were way into the paper roll.  Your stats:  16 lbs 15 oz (68th%), 26″ height (56th%) & 16.93″ head circumference (63rd%).  Right on track!

And just for fun, an image in the hat I made ya…I have a yarn addiction!

Shatto Ice Cream Social

August 11, 2014 | My friends know I adore Shatto Milk.  And farmer’s markets.  Well, really anything that supports local business!  So again I bundled you into the Ergo and off we went to meet more friends at the market.  Who can resist free ice cream?  Plus it’s good for the mommas to see one another!

Strawberry Swing Craft Fair

August 3, 2014 | Sometimes the best laid plans run into a little rain…but that’s ok!  I organized several friends to meet up for this super-fun craft fair in town, that was sure to have lots of fun things for us to do.  Major rain changed that a little, but I still count it as you getting out into the world.  And a little water never hurt anyone, right?
