7 Quick Takes

I don't have the energy to get the button from Jen at Conversion Diary who hosts 7 Quick Takes.
1. K and I went to visit family in Austin for about 5 days last week.  She had a hard time until her daddy came out Sunday.
2. D learned that K really likes the Colts.  She sat (no hands) and watch them and didn't cry.  It's completely random since we live nowhere near there.
3. K is so close to crawling (despite the fact she's not even 6 months old yet).  She scoots across the room and no longer shoved her head down while doing it.
4. K started on solid foods on Tuesday.  This week is avocado.  She seems to like it, although she's not taking much (which I know is totally normal).  Next week is bananas, and then we are doing sweet potato.
5. K is still taking about 8 ounce of formula a day.  Hopefully as she takes more solids, we will be able to reduce the formula and just do solid and nursing.  We are still supplementing at the breast.
6. I'm struggling with how much time I'm spending by myself with K.  I don't need time away from her.  I just need help in the evening so I can eat dinner and get ready for bed without her in arms.  I need D home more night when he's not working.
7.  My mom bought me a Beco Gemini carrier and I'm loving it.


  1. Yea for avocado!!!! Starting solids is SO fun! It will be easier to eat when she's in the high chair eating with you!!!

    I have the Beco gemini and LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!!!

  2. We just started P on rice cereal today and will do avocados next week. And yeah I always find the evenings to be the most stressful time of the day.
