I will ONLY do it for a Banana Puff!

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008

So Happy (belated) First Birthday to miss Lily from Maggie and her mommy and daddy! I can’t believe that its been a year since you were born, and we went to the hospital to see you. I was in my final weeks of pregnancy, and had never held a baby before, and was scared to death I would drop you. But you just laid there in my arms and hung out, and I felt so much better about how I would do as a mom. You were so beautiful, and cute and tiny and sweet. I’m so glad that Maggie will grow up having such a sweet friend as you! So, happy birthday Lily, the oldest of our mini-baby boom of 2007!

On Maggie news, she has decided she doesn’t want to eat. She just rocks back and forth in her high chair and shakes her head “no” when I try to give her baby food. She’ll eat her banana puffs and Cheerios, but not her baby food. The only way I can get food in her mouth is to trick her into thinking I’m about to put a banana puff in there. Then she figures it out and we’re stuck again. We thought maybe she just wanted to feed herself, so we got her some little solid vegetables she could pick up (tiny green beans, peas, carrots) and some mashed potatoes, and she was into it for about 20 minutes, but barely ate anything. I wonder if its teething…I thinks she might be cutting some molars. It just came on all of a sudden over the past week and a half to two weeks. She’s never had feeding problems before. We’ll keep trying and hope it passes quick.

And, this Saturday, we are inviting anyone who wants to come over to come help us finish getting the condo ready to put on the market. We will have food and beverages (pizza, beer and coke, probably) for anyone who helps. We have painting and other random items on the to-do list (like put the door knobs back on), so any help would be appreciated!
