Six Months- aka Halfway There...or Two Steps Forward One Step Back

Here we are...the amazing six months, the time when everyone said everything would get easier, and better...well my friends- those people were wrong!!! Five months was definitely better than six months for us. C is in what I like to call a MEGA development phase of crawling and teething otherwise known as- Mommy doesn't need to sleep.  Sleep has taken a backseat and we're back to waking up every two hours at night...where did my newborn go...oh wait, she's right here!

Despite the above, it's not all downhill...we have seen some major development in the napping arena- we are now consistently using the crib and hoping Miss C gets the memo of staying in it longer than 30 minutes. The breaks however short they may be are refreshing, time to eat, have a shower or read an article...much appreciated!

She has started eating solid food now, and what an adventure. Have you ever had pureed turkey flung into your ear? If not- you should try it sometime.  Our little one prefers a daily avocado facial to the turkey fling. So far she likes everything we have served up, which is pretty exciting.

She likes:
- Banging her spoon on the highchair tray
- Her gold glitter sensory bottle- bling anyone?
- Being thrown in the air
- Sucking her thumb and holding a blanket
- Chewing on everything
-Playing peekaboo
- The cats- she has a special soft voice she uses to lure them in

She dislikes:
- Surprise noises
- Getting taken out of the bath
- Anyone other than mommy comforting her at night
- Being strapped in her carseat

Tolerating Intolerances

We've been dealing with a medical mystery in our house since November. Miss Charlotte has a few symptoms of a food intolerance (I'll spare you the graphic details), so I have spent the better part of 4 months eliminating common allergens from my diet. This is difficult for a girl with no food restrictions who loves to bake and eat! We're not out of the woods yet but I've been told to go back in a normal diet until February. (***since drafting this, I have actually gone off of gluten and dairy again...fingers crossed things are improving)

In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to share some of the successful things I made while on these special diets


There you have it folks- if you're ever avoiding soy, dairy and egg for whatever reason- here are some yummy recipes that are tried and tested. Throwing gluten into the mix has definitely thrown me off, so if you know of any yummy gluten-free recipes please send them my way:)

Another Reason Why My Grammy Rocks (my socks)!!!

My Grammy has knit me a ton of socks in her day. I used to wear them a lot in univesity, but I haven't worn them a ton since (corporate jobs will do that to you). Since being on maternity leave, and it being winter and all- I have a new found love for all of my Grammy socks! I've been wearing them daily and loving it:)
