Happy Halloween!

October 31, 2014 | I absolutely LOVE Halloween, so of course I wanted to make it special for E.  I wanted something I could make, with a classic costume.  So Little Red Riding Hood it was!  Before having a kid I could have churned this out in a week or so.  But carving out 20-30 minutes here and there for a month is what it took…but totally worth it.  I took a couple of cell phone pics, then broke out the real camera for some pics with her Koala-bear cousin… 🙂  And I might have finished this costume during her afternoon nap on the actual day.

Food Glorious Food!

November 1, 2014 | Food has been quite an adventure over here, but overall this girl is an amazing eater!  Teething led to us handing her apple wedges and celery stalks (which she loves) and she will even eat on a full apple for a long time.  Her little bottom teeth just make little bites all around the apple until I have to just take it away.

My original plan was to do the whole Babyled Weaning, but E had other ideas.  She just attacks food so intensely that it was dangerous.  I even made some of her food first, but she likes the store-bought baby food the most.  Go figure.  She is getting solids three times a day, and will eat oatmeal, a fruit and a veggie each time.  Lately a whole container of the baby food and then some!  Crazy kid.  Squash, apples, pears, peas…she loves it.  We are doing a little more “real” food lately just to get her used to it.  So it is only a matter of time.  Love this little Bean!
