A Lovely Visit of RIce Cereal and Ice Cream

We had such a great visit with Nana and Boppa this weekend. The best part being (ok, one best part of two best parts :) when Nana fed Rosie her first ever meal of 'solids', or wallpaper paste as it looks in the bowl. We gave her 2 teaspoons before her 10:30am bottle and she gleefully spat out her first few mouthfuls. That was Saturday. It wasn't until Sunday morning that we realized that if we kept the spoon in her mouth she was more likely to actually swallow the stuff. William had fun sweeping outside, wearing Boppa's hat and helping to clean out the gutters. He was also caught skulking around the kitchen, chuckling to himself, "Boppa is such a funny guy". The next best part (of OK, many) was the news the Uncle Chad is coming to visit for William's birthday (ok, mine might be in there as well) Hooray!! Ice creams on the way home at McDonald's made for a great end- of- trip. Something definitely for Rosie to work her way up too.


Sitting Pretty

Rosie isn't quite sitting up on her own yet but she does manage to make us smile - as well as herself - as she learns how. She's so proud of herself and so happy with this beautiful weather. Cheese!!

Feeling Better Now

OK, so I really love these pictures, just had to show off Rosie's scarf thanks to Heather and brand new jeans (!!!) from Uncle Chad and Aunt Sue and William's new tshirt (fun things from England:) These pictures also show how healthy and somewhat resilient our children are who miraculously did not pick up whatever bug Scott and I had all weekend. Whatever bug that made Scott um, toss his cookies, for the first time EVER since I've known him. Not good stuff!! Oh well, things are looking up :)

So finally we're outside, smiling and very very muddy! William loves to watch the water float by at the bottom of our driveway and catch the leaves as they sail by. Rosie loves, well, just about everything right now, including bubbles!

Getting it Right

After two weeks of worrying that Rosie wasn't gaining enough/quickly enough, and so many troubles with nursing, we're happy. After one week on formula (lots of 8 ounces botttles) and whatever milk I can give her, Rosie is up from 13lbs, 12.5 ounces to a whooping 15.1lbs. So now we can relax and enjoy this warmer weather. It's cozy with a bottle, and so good to see her feeding away happily at last!
