This first picture here is a little random to the post, but I didn't want to give it it's own post either. I guess it shows a little bit of my quirky behavior since I took this picture to show Elisabeth what the back of her hair looked like. She's learning how to do ponytails herself and so she did it up in the morning before school and then sat at the piano to practice. I asked her if I could smooth it over a bit and she said no. So I took a picture of it, showed her, and then asked, "Are you sure? I mean, If you're fine with it then that's okay, but I just want you to see what everyone else sees." She let me smooth it over again. I suggested she continue to put it in a ponytail each day and then allow me to give her a few pointers as I help smooth it out. She did a pretty good job but it'll take some practice before she gets it just right. Okay, now onto the other pix, most of which are of Nora!
Nora just started eating solid foods this week(she's almost 5 1/2 months). So far we've tried some butternut squash which I steamed and pureed, mashed avocados, and oatmeal. The avocados and oatmeal were a little too thick. I think I might try a box of the baby boxed oatmeal next time, if that makes sense :). It's thinner and the oats are a lot smaller. I don't even know if it's really oats...they seem too flaky. I guess I'll look into that first.
And I tried giving her some water in a sippy cup, which she loved! Other than that, we're still nursing around the clock which I'm happy about. I'd like to nurse to at least 12 months but we'll have to see because my milk supply seems to have dropped some recently. Love our cute Nora!
