Let's See...

Let's see...what's new, you ask?
  • I got sick. Again. Agh! I became ill with some stomach bug on Monday afternoon and was sick until Wednesday afternoon. More fever and overall crumminess, but this time lots of nausea was added! My great friend Tessa sent her hubby over on Tuesday with PowerAde and bananas. I have decided that "electrolytes" really do help! Then, Tessa made me delicious homemade chicken dumpling soup that night and sent it over! I have such great friends!
  • I am thinking seriously about switching to cloth diapering. I have started some reading - especially people's blogs about the subject. I am the most indecisive person, and since quite a bit of money is invested upfront, I know it is going to take me forever to decide which type and how many to choose from. Cloth diapering is not like it used to be! There are so many varieties of diapers, liners, and covers - too many! Will anyone volunteer to just make my choices for me? :-) I also am of course obsessed with getting the best possible price on things. So, I need to be assured that I pay the least amount for whatever products I decide to go with.
  • We met one of the newest babes on the block last week - Sebastian! I went to college with Alix and Derek and it was so fun to see them last weekend when they came into town. He is adorable! I realized in the shower getting ready that day (all of my deep thoughts come in the shower) that I have known Alix for 9 years this fall! It doesn't seem like I should know a college friend for that long!

  • Evelyn had her first taste of cereal last Sunday! We mostly took video - this pic isn't that great and definitely is not demonstrative of how much she liked it! I hardly added much rice cereal, so she was mostly just drinking breastmilk from a spoon. Yesterday was the second time she had it. I added much more cereal and she actually liked it even more. I am not in too much of a hurry to get her going on solids. She loves it when we are eating and always wants some, so I figured since her interest was there, I would give it a try.

  • We went out to eat yesterday after our pretty dismal (one attendee) open house. Evelyn wanted my water, so I let her put her mouth on my straw. She sucked up and drank a little water - loved it of course, too! She is so funny!
  • We took our first trip to the mall with Evelyn last weekend, too. A baby's delight - lots of new faces, things to see, sounds and lights!

And this was just a pic thrown in for fun because she is adorable and is wearing her "toasties" that Uncle Dawson gave her!
