I'm really good at taking pictures of Macie. But when it comes to putting them on my computer? Foggetaboutit.

So here are some from last month. My mom did this while I was at work. Can you believe it?


That's a dress that I wore as a baby that she saved. Um, yeah. That's pretty much awesome.

Today we're off to the pumpkin patch (I've never been!). I know there will be many photo opportunities, so if my computer cooperates I'll post some soon (well, at some point).
Happy October 23rd!

5 months

Can you believe how quickly time has flown by? She is five months old now!
We introduced Rice cereal on her 5 month birthday - it was a hit. For right now we're only eating it at her 5:00 meal. Next week I'll add another cereal feeding to her 11:00 meal. I'm excited to introduce other foods, but I'll wait until after talking to the doctor at her 6 month check up next month.
Isn't it weird that next month is November already? Where has the time gone!?
Yesterday it became official that Macie is a 'sitter-upper'. She has been balancing for a few weeks now, but yesterday I put her in the pack and play while I made dinner (Shepard's pie, yum!) and she stayed in a sitting position for about 15 minutes! So I'm putting that as officially when she started sitting up. Fun!
There is so much else to write, but I'm posting this while on a break at work, so I don't want to infringe on class time.
Take care ladies!

AF - Permission to land?

Yes, I write you a much happier woman, on the other side of AF. So for the record, the day after my last post I got a strange and wonderful visitor. I told my husband it was weird to see red and not have a panic attack over it. Isn't it strange? My last menstral cycle had been July of 2009.
I am happy for many reasons. I would of course love to have more children, but I am so happy right now with an overflowing cup, that the thought of having another right away scares me.
That being said, I am happy to take whatever God feels I can handle, and if it means another little one right away, then sign me up.
But if I had to choose (God is laughing at that statment), it would be to wait another 6-8 months before getting pregnant. So...all that to say, I have conquored AF and will see if it is another 26-28 days before we meet again.
In the meantime, my little one is 5 months today! Yikes! Tonight for dinner she will be having her very first rice cereal. Yum. I hope she takes to it well. She has one tooth that broke out about 2 weeks ago, so I'm thinking that is all the more reasons she is ready for food. Her pediatrician said 5 months, so I am taking her literally.

I love all the blogs and am enjoying reading everything that you guys write, even if my comments are to a minimum.
Enjoy Thursday all!
