I frequently visit all of your blogs and I think they haven’t updated in a while. Then I look at my last entry and think, how about you Erin, you need to update yours too! You all know when I haven’t updated it is ALL over the place so stick with me.
First things first, Brek girl is ADORABLE! She is so animated and pulls the most hilarious faces. Everyone is drawn to her because her personality is amazing. Even when she hasn’t napped all day she still smiles and hides it well. It looks like sweet little B is going to be outgoing. (Where or where would she get that from…not us!)
My very crunchy friend Rikki introduced us to Baby Lead Weaning and Brek has been eating solids for a few months (She is 8 months already!) We are very lazy about giving her food but when we do it is usually a vegetable, some fruit, and her very favorite, Cheerios. There have been many emails and texts to Rikki keeping me focused and encouraged about breastfeeding. I now know why mothers do not make it very long. IT IS HARD! I barely pump enough to survive but by the Grace of God I make enough to feed her. Not that I want to wish time away, it goes so fast already but we are talking less than four months of pumping, I got this!
A few of Brek’s milestones so far:
-Has her two bottom teeth. (I wonder if she is always going to be an overachiever, couldn’t she just do it one at a time?)
-She rolls and rolls and rolls but hasn’t shown much interest in crawling yet.
-Started swimming lessons last week, today is her last day.
-To date has not had one jar of baby food! HOORAY!
- Desperately wants to be friends with Chica, now that she drops food Chica is warming up to her.
-Has had her first manicure/pedicure (Look again, did you notice her nails are done?)
-This morning she waved goodbye to me! ADORABLE!
-She still wears 3-6 month clothes.
-She has her dad wrapped around her little finger...and if I must be honest, her mom too.
That girl is awesome and amazes me every day! She fits perfectly in our family! I want what is best for her and will make sure I will always be the best I can so she never has to feel hurt or rejection.
Loves and hugs-In 20 weeks I will be finished with school…forever? I hope!
