Hi ladies! We're doing good here, just super busy & had no internet or phone service at home for almost a week. Grrr. Mark is growing so fast & we're also on table/solid food. No teethies still so we grind, mash, cut up very small & make sure it's soft. He loves to eat though just about everything so I'm sure he'll enjoy turkey too.
Our little Lila is still only on formula, so nothing different for her
We are going to my inlaws, 28 people on almost white carpet, in a small area. Yikes, makes me a little nervous, but I'll try and remember that it's not about "controling" our brood, it's about giving thanks to Him. Please let us remember to give our Heavenly Father thanks for all we have. I know their have been some recent losses here, and my heart hurts for those of you. But let us remember our blessings.
I'll be saying a prayer for Sam and Stacey and for Beth's mom this year.
Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!!
PS, the little cutie in my siggy is our 2 year old Travis.
Jesus loving, homeschooling, gardening lover, devoted wife to a wonderful hubby and 10 kids, ages 13 down to 12.5 months . We are expecting number 11 due January 1st, 2015.
I am sure somebody will probably slip some "real" food to Abigail so we'll see how it goes.
Our June 2010 PR had a loss last week. A sweet, sweet little girl named Kaiya, who is the same age as Abigail passed away and it hit pretty close to home. Please, if you will, say a prayer for her parents that they find healing and comfort in knowing that she is in the hands of the Lord. My heart still aches for them and I can't even imagine what they must be going through.
Katie is eating more stuff from the table. She had her one year checkup and vaccinations this week, we were told she can start drinking whole milk, is mildly anemic (is on a three month round of iron drops), has ear wax issues (pedi prescribed stool softener to take care of the ear wax. . . strange but true) and is destined to be (pedi's words not mine) "tall, slender and brilliant"
We don't celebrate Thanksgiving over here so we're just hanging out til Christmas . Layla had her 6 month needles last week (they were delayed due to an ear infection). She ended up vomiting a lot that night, I'm assuming due to the rotavirus vaccine. She didn't react to it at all the first two times so I thought we'd be fine. It was a rough night but thankfully by morning she was able to feed and keep it down and was just grizzly (which was normal after the previous vaccinations).
Layla is eating food here and there. After talking alot to my SIL who has a 15 month old, I've skipped the pureeing and mashing. I'm still careful with what she has, but I'll cook sweet potato or potato and cut it into finger sized chunks for her to pick up and eat. A lot of it misses the mouth or just gets spat out of course!! She has bits and pieces of what we eat if it's suitable, eg. chicken from a stirfry (she sucks on it then spits it out mostly, but she really likes meat!), mango or watermelon if the boys are eatingit etc. It's going pretty well and I'm enjoying being a bit more laidback about it all then I was with the boys!!
Layla is 9kgs (just under 20lbs I think that works out to). She's got gorgeous chunky thighs and she's currently sitting in the lounge room chatting to Jonah and she's dressed just in a nappy and shorts (it's getting very warm now), and I just love seeing her gorgeous rolls of fat on her tummy and chest!
Hope everyone is going well! I've been pretty busy and my FIL arrives this Sunday and tends to use up our internet limit pretty quickly by watching YouTube clips so I may not be on that much over the next 5 weeks! (I get so used to the really fast internet and we rarely go over our limit or if we do it's just the last couple of days of the month. Last time FIL was here he put us over within the first two weeks and we put up with slow internet for the rest of the month and I just stopped using it cause I can't stand slow internet!!).
