And no, thats not the song in my head…its Jessica’s first ‘words’. Da-Da could not be any prouder!!! She’s also started to say mmm-mmmh when eating – very cute, but alas no Mamma…
Last night I dreamt she got 6 teeth at the same time, they sommer sprouted all on one day too – 1st thing I checked this morning was her gums!! Nothing yet! Her gums were a bit swollen last night, and her poor boudjies red – going to the pharmacy this afternoon to get anti-acid thingies, school-tannie said could be excess acid…
She’s eating beautifully – eating about 3 tspns at a time. She’s had carrots & butternut so far – and she likes it! Next veggies on the list are sweetpotato, potato & babymarrow. Also want to try cauliflower- dont know if that might be a too strong taste! Does any one know whether you can freeze purity? The fruity ones. Havent started to give her that yet (perhaps from next month), but will also start will only a few teaspoons at 1st, but dont want it to go ‘off’ if we dont use it within the 2day recommendation… not end of the world though!
This was yesterday, happy child o’mine!
I see future fights about this ‘contraption’
Her little hoedjie! Fraai ne’?
Sunday is the big day, her Christening. Leaving early today for some ‘last minute’ shoppings. Got her a cute little pink dress, Daddy’s got a new outfit, Mommy has an outfit (which Im not settled on yet – maybe I see something else this afternoon), need to get Madam a short of sorts to cover her nappy! We decided to book some tables at the local Spur, ordered platters, breads & salad and that will have to do for Sunday lunch. The ‘konsistorie’ wasnt the brightest to hire, too much work and effort and besides, the Spur is just across the road from church! And if anyone wants to eat anything else, they can do so – out of their pocket! Whats the ‘etiket’ with regards to Christenings & pressies? We bought small gifts for our friends, but my sister is going all out – which to me is unnecessary… I dont know?
Tip for new (& existing)moms:
Once you start braving the world outside, when you do happen to be in the shops around feeding time, and the thermo bag thingie didnt keep the water as warm as you (baby) would like it: Wimpy Mega Coffee mugs are the perfect size to reheat a bottle of milk, just ask for hotwater (tommee tipee fits snug). And you relax with a float or milkshake!
Pressed for time*, do you have a Woolies food nearby? All woolies foods have microwaves to heat meals, pop your bottle in there! (had to do this last weekend…shopping ‘spree’ ran over Madams lunchtime! Lifesaver woolies to the rescue! )
*this is only if you make formula, warm the water, of if you aren’t all that fussy, you can heat the milk this way too – just dont overheat it as that will kill the nutrients…or something.
Congrats to all the New Arrivals – exciting times!!!
Okie dokes , that’s me out of here….
Have an awesome week!!
