Taeya and Dad enjoying some time together at the God Rally.
Taeya wearing her beautiful dress from Nana Laurie.
Taeya loves spending time with Annie (one of our pastor's daughters). The feeling's definitely mutual.
Taeya's so serious because it was bedtime for her but there was too much going on to get any sleep.
More about the God Rally and Strawberry Days in my next post (if I remember).
Today after swim lessons I was reading the paper and noticed that the breastfeeding chat time was going on right at that moment. I have needed a new nursing bra for a long time now. Unfortunately, due to our more rural location, there's no stores in our area that carry them and it is not something that I will buy online. I had heard that the place that had the breastfeeding chat time had bras so I decided to drop by for a visit. It was fun getting to see other moms and their little ones. Taeya was the oldest by about two weeks. While I was there I got a wonderful new bra that fit me!! Wahoo! Also, right before I left I noticed that they had a baby scale so I put Taeya on it fully-clothed to see approximately how much she's weighing these days. People have been asking me lately and I've been saying that I think she's in the 13-14 pound range. She weighed 13.5 oz fully clothed so she's probably more like 13 lbs without clothes and diaper. She's still a little one but growing. She's grown just over 2 lbs in the two months since her last doctor's visit.
I fed her squash for the first time yesterday and she enjoyed it. She was fussy before I started feeding her so she was kind of whiny while she ate but she opened her mouth and swallowed all her squash w/o any faces. Phil told me that she wasn't going to like it. Ha! I want her to like all the veggies that Phil and I don't enjoy. We tend to each like different veggies so it makes it challenging to cook ones that we'll both eat besides basics like corn and peas.
Yesterday, I made carrots, yellow squash and applesauce for Taeya and froze them in ice-cubes to use later. I also bought avacados, bananas and mangoes that I still need to turn into baby-food. It's amazing how easy it is to make baby-food. I'm glad that this is something I can do for Taeya. I enjoy knowing exactly what she is eating and that she's not getting all the preservatives and supplements that come in canned food. It's also a great way for us to cut back on costs which we always need to do as we're on a very tight budget.
Yesterday morning I attended my first women's Bible Study here. It was such a blessing to be able to spend time in the Word with other women. They have had Bible Study all year but due to my work and tutoring schedule I've never before been able to go. Our study book is "Feminine Appeal" by Carolyn Mahaney. It talks about the seven virtues of a godly wife and mother as found in Titus 2.
Now it's time to throw some loads of laundry in.
