So sorry to hear of the most recent, Ireland Rose. She has lost her battle today against the CDH monster and her family is going to need a lot of prayers for comfort and to find peace.
Second, I want to thank everyone who has checked out CDH Family. I hope it will help someone someday! And a big thanks to PATTY and VINCE who let me post CHARLIE (aka Gumdrop) on CDH Family. I hope to get many more up there. So please if you would like, send me a photo- you can find my email under the About part on this blog. My brother says I need about 50 more posts before he can do his computer thing and get it to show up on Google.. so I'm trying. :) I have 9!! haha I am finding it hard to think of things to post as I blab on and on and end up putting more information in one post than I intended to. haha
Third, Last, whatever, is an update on my little girl. In 5 days she will be 6 months old. HOLY CRAP!! She is very cute, loud, fussy, demanding, and very unpredictable. We just love her to pieces! She has now developed a great laugh- I'm sure all parents with a 5+ month old knows of this giggle but I am totally in love with her laugh. :) She loves bath time now! yay!! Once we get her clean, we let her sit up and splash around- the floor is completely drenched when we are done, but it is always totally worth it. :) We must buckle her in everything- she has quite a temper and tries to escape often!
Her bottle time is ok... not the greatest it's been but just ok. :) She is getting the amount I would like her too, but am still doing the 11 p.m. feed. We went without it for a couple days, and she didn't take more in the a.m., in fact this a.m., she took less.. go figure! She takes about 4-5 oz every feed now- and we have found a new trick- when she starts fussing because she doesn't want the bottle any more, we put her octo-plush or her singing puppy dog in front of her to reach out and touch and she eats at least an 1oz or 2 more. :) Her rice cereal and 1st foods- not so great- I have sorta cut back on that, and do it once and a while, just yesterday she ate half the jar for me. GOOD GIRL! :) haha She sleeps through the night, with exceptions in between 8 - 10 p.m. she'll start crying and just want her bink. We are still working on sitting up- she can't do it long, but she does sit up on her own and no way would I ever leave her side... she is far from being that good. She still hates tummy time- so I don't think she'll crawl anytime soon... she lets me lay her down for about 2-3 min with a toy, and then she starts to get mad and SCREAMS.. boy oh boy does she have the loudest scream.
So to end, this is a video of Grandpa (Jer's dad) playing with Kayla- who was wayyyyyyyyy tired! So it was super cute she was so giggly. I start work on Tuesday- Grandma (Jer's mom) takes over then. She has a very sucky work week now bc Kayla can't go to day care.. so we want to thank Grandma for being so awesome!! We hope it won't last too long.. :(
