Cat Chase

Poor Roary never thought that Lilly could catch up with her.  Those days are over!

Squash, Carrots, and Prunes…Oh My!

Okay, so maybe my description of introducing solid foods as ‘fun’ was a bit optimistic.  Lilly has been slowly introduced to fruits and veggies, which are a LOT messier than rice cereal!  Whoever designed those tiny baby bibs obviously never had a baby – Lilly would do much better with a smock!  In fact, I drape damp paper towels over her shoulders to keep as much food off of her as possible.

She likes to hold the spoon with her left hand.  With a little guidance from me she usually does a great job, but there are certainly feedings where she gets pureed fruits/veggies everywhere (the wall, carpet, cat, and myself included!).  Lilly enjoys the ‘orange stuff’ best:  sweet potatoes and carrots especially.  This morning she got VERY excited about the carrots – kicking, bouncing, and babbling her way through the entire feeding.  Her clothes are in the wash now.  🙂

Last Days at Hospital

Roary’s Nesting

Roary has picked up some new habits over the last few weeks, which we think are related to Kristy’s pregnancy hormones. The most amusing one for us is the kneading of stuffed animals. I think it was Nippy (my brown stuffed bear from childhood) that got the first treatment and we didn’t think much of it at the time. Roary has since blossomed into a full blown kneader of stuffed animals. In the pictures above you can see she is completely in her element while massaging Peaches (a replacement stuffed animal for the original that was ‘lost’ during a Sessoms family road trip through Tennessee).
