Well, I think we are finally getting over this rediculous cold. Really, who gets sick for weeks on end? Now, I am just trying to climb back up on the “mommy horse.” All I want to do is lay in bed, but when I look around, I can’t help but see the hundreds of ways that I have let things go. Oh well.

emilyEmily is crawling around a ton! She seems so please with her new skills. As expected, she is into everything she can get to. I think there is a strong sense of relief to be able to move out of the tornado(we like to call Megan)’s way. She certainly doesn’t relish all of Meg’s attention! I love to watch her little caboose shake back and forth as scoots along. She especially enjoys snacking on any papers that mom leaves lying around. She still has the full-body-all-out-sparkly grin. I love the way her whole face lights up, she literally radiates happiness!

Also, being the big 10 month old that she is, she thinks she is too big for baby food. I am trying to keep the menu creative, but I feel like we get a little stuck. Here’s what I have going: chicken nuggets, goldfish crackers, grapes, strawberries, cheerios, pasta, cheese, peas, corn, carrots, apples, and lots of bananas. A pretty good list, but not actually that much when you are making it 3-4 times a day. Any suggestions for new options would be appreciated! Meanwhile, I am going to go find another excuse to not clean out my sad, sad fridge…
