Holding a bottle.

Just about a month ago she couldn't figure out how to hold a bottle. 
Now I'm here holding her while drinks from her bottle and pushes my hand away when I try to help.

Standing

Since last Sunday Alexandra has been staying up all by herself. Of course she can only do it for a few seconds. But still. 

She has been enjoying being walked by us and yesterday she pushed her walker through the kitchen.

food and allergies

Alexandra's dr says we're supposed to feed her everything we can - including peanut butter - to avoid developing allergies. 

So she eats what we eat (puréed, or mashed, of course), at home or at the restaurant. 

We even gave her peanut butter a few times. Even though I hate peanut butter. 

She likes everything!!! She makes funny noises when she eats.

books are friends

Our goal for now is to teach our baby that books are friends not food. 

consonants

Alexandra has started some consonant sounds. 
Last week : t and d
Last Saturday: n 
Yesterday : b and m
She's excited. 

drying out

I wish someone had told me that when you get pregnant your milk dries out. I'd have been more careful. It's truly despairing watching your baby crying at your breast bc she can't get any milk. I feel like a jerk. I did this to her. Not only did I take away her place as the family baby, I also dried up her precious milk. My poor baby. Never did anything to deserve that.
