We have been missing from the blog because our computer died but now we are back! I am vowing to write on Eliza's blog two days a week, Sundays and Wednesdays. So what have we been up to? Well, Eliza has started solid food. We were interrupted by a brief stomach virus that didn't bother Eliza too bad, but hit mommy pretty hard. I'm desperately hoping that my milk supply recovers because it was pretty dodgy last week. I've been drinking tons of water and taking fenugreek, which might make me smell like maple syrup. Yay!

Eliza has been making many developmental gains. She is "this" close to crawling! She's getting up on her knees, but then she just ends up going backwards. She ends up in some pretty interesting spots! She loves Hank and she loves her duckies! Seriously, we've been having an epic battle at bath time over her duckies! When we scoop her up out of her bath, she's always clenching one or two of them. When Wes goes to dress her, she has an absolute fit if the duckies are taken out of her hands. Um, it's kind of impossible to dress the baby when she's holding things! So the duckies were hidden and now they are part of her toys that she plays with on the floor.

She's been sleeping better and better at daycare. We are continuing to work on her sleep at home. This girl can play until she drops. She has so much energy it's unreal. And she is always, always in a good mood. Even if she got up at 5:30 in the morning. Even if she didn't nap that day. She was having some major teeth pain last week, but no teeth have popped and the pain has subsided.

We get such a kick out Eliza. She has the sunniest personality. We went to the Redhook for dinner last night and she was a superstar. Everyone was laughing and cooing at her. In turn she was smiling and jumping up and down and eating up the spotlight. We love her so much!

Waiting for her food!

Her cute teeth (not so cute when she bites when your are nursing her!)

She loves Hank and she is going to be after him!

Beautiful little baby

  1. Love the new pics! And almost crawling?! How exciting! I've had a decrease in my milk supply a couple of times and I tried seemingly everything to help (including fenugreek and Mother's Milk tea), but the best thing I used was called "more milk plus" by Motherlove. It has fenugreek, blessed thistle, nettle herb and fennel seed. It tastes yucky, but it did the trick. Take care!
