I don't want to make a big deal out of food, as it seems to only make a problem worse, so we decided to take a break for awhile. She didn't seem to miss it at all. Crazy kid.
On the advice of some friends, I tried her on oatmeal today... and she LOVED it! She was practically launching herself at the spoon and ate the whole tablespoon! She actually swallowed it. Yay! Go Mia! And she didn't even want to nurse because she was full.
So maybe she just didn't like rice cereal? Or she wanted a change? Mia's doctor recommended switching every couple of days, so I may try that.
On to veggies next week. So excited about that!
First bite -- um, what?
Okay, I have it in my mouth... now what?
Yum! That's good! Gimme more!
Yay! That was fun!Wait... that wasn't a one time thing?

What do you mean? She's my duckie!
She helps me practice my poses. I call this one "Blue Steel"
Out of everyone, Duckie, I love you best of all!
She keeps my secrets. See, like here? I'm tired. But she didn't tell Mommy. She's cool like that.
And she lets me eat her face. That's a true friend right there.

It was runny, but not like milk. It was sweet, for sure. But I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do with it. So I just let it run out of my mouth. It made mommy and daddy laugh, so I guess that's okay. I did swallow a little bit of it, and it sure was good! So I'm going to try to work on that swallowing stuff.
But I tell you one thing... I really, really liked the spoon! It was so much fun to chew on. Mommy says we're going to eat again tomorrow. I'm so excited... yay for spoons!
(pictures coming soon)

Oh who cares... a duck! Yay!
Hello, my name is Mia. I will eat your face now.
The Easter dress that that she didn't get to wear for awhile. It was too cold! Weird.

Some things I love about my baby:
* Her laughing at me being silly
* Cuddling with her after she wakes up from a nap
* A smile to greet me every morning
* Watching her play and explore her world
* Her gorgeous eyes
* When she looks at me when nursing
* Her feistiness -- She'll stand her ground one day!
* The way she looks at her daddy
* Her baby "hugs"
* When she quiets down when I hold her
* When she looks at me all content
I'm so blessed. How could I ever exchange that for a baby who takes a bottle or sleeps?
But... I received my "diploma". Having really finished in December, this was a formality, but it was fun, and I'm glad I went. Being all graduated and stuff feels official now.
Mia's all -- meh, graduation... Can I play with Heidi now?
I'm not sure who is more proud.

Tooth #1 appeared on my birthday.
Tooth #2 appeared on Mother's Day.
I'm not sure whether that "Thanks" is sarcastic or genuine. On one hand, she's much happier since the teeth have broken through. On the other... teeth. Nursing.
Need I say more?
We have yet to capture good photographic evidence of the teeth. Will post when we do!
