Table Foods

Ah, table foods. I used to look forward to my little kiddo eating solid foods while I would feed her a bottle - especially when mixing up that stinky formula! When we started Libby on solid foods so early at month 4 I just knew that she would be a great table food eater. Boy, I was WRONG! We are still struggling with getting her to eat table foods. We have tried everything! She's doing much better thanks to her awesome daycare being so patient with her but she still won't eat normal kid things like mac 'n cheese or really any kind of noodle. She does love her carbs though. Libby will gobble down pancakes, biscuits, waffles, grilled cheese or fries. Don't even think about giving her any kind of cut up fruit, cheese, or meat of any kind. I just hope this isn't a sign of her being a picky eater from now on and she just doesn't like the chew. I hope.

Happy Halloween!

Have a happy and safe halloween!

Libby's Bears

Libby has officially started loving on stuffed animals now. She loves this wine colored bear we have and then her Grandparents brought her back a Fozzie Bear from Disney World. She won't give either up and drags them all around the house. This picture is from her taking them over to the door to show them outside. It is too cute!

New Daycare

Libby started her new daycare on Monday (10.13) after being home with me for 2 weeks. I expected it to be for us both but it wasn't as bad as I pictured in my head. The Friday before I dropped her off for an hour and a half visit and left her screaming and crying in her new teacher's arms. When I picked her up though, she was totally fine. She obviously started to fuss for me to pick her up but it wasn't anything abnormal. On Monday I prepared myself again. Everyone at the new daycare was so nice. They greeted us at the door and really tried to calm Libby and me down. I had to leave her again crying and reaching out for me. It was killing my heart but I knew she would be ok. The teacher must have sensed my worry and called me three times! I didn't have to call them once! Libby did fabulously. She cries (still) when I drop her off for about 15-20 minutes and then has a fantastic day. The whole mood of this daycare is different than the other one we used. The old one always had kids screaming somewhere - which you would expect from a daycare, right? This new one - I just heard one kid screaming (out of joy) on Friday. Everything seems calmer and more efficient there. It's great! Oh, and have I mentioned that they are getting her to eat table food? She's already comfortable enough there she's talking, dancing, and eating just fine there. It hasn't even impacted her nightly routine with us (i.e., she's still sleeping through the night =)). I wish we had made this move months ago!

Sleepy Baby

Libby was sitting with me on the couch and all of a sudden put her head on my leg. It was so cute I couldn't help it and took a picture.
