Random Stuff

Today was day 3 of food... It's been so great! We were going to originally going to wait to start food until 6 months, but she quit sleeping (was sleeping about 3-4 hours a night - that's it) and was hungry about every 1.5 hours during the day! So we talked to her doc and decided it was definitely time to start food... and man, it's been great! Last night she slept almost 7 hours! whoo hoo!!! Thanks for all the food imput - keep it coming :) It's great!
I love the expression she's making in these two pics!
On a side note, we got these foamy mat things for her for the floor, so she can lay and play (and not on the hard marble :)). She will actually tolerate being on her stomach on it because she likes to look at it :)
Oh, and here's a video of Aashini & Hazel's pool party :)

until you're a nursing mom, you really can't begin to understand the value of 7 hours of straight sleep. I'm so GLAD this seems to be working - you will both be very happy with the extra rest! nathan went through a spell of every-hour-on-the-hour hunger, but never overnight, thank goodness. her full little tummy and your sanity will thank your doc! :)

What's that sheet thing billowing over your porch? Does it have a canvas roof or something?

What is it about steel drum music that just puts people in a good mood?

We just hung up a sheet on our porch so that the sun wasn't so bright/hot/sunburny :) It's not up there normally :)

The Lazy Gringo is a Mexican restrauant our friends in Nepal own... we haven't actually been there though. Emily brought us some shirts - i've heard it's AWESOME!

We started Keely on cereal around 5 1/2 months because after some meals she would cry and cry and there was nothing else to give her! The cereal did help and made feeding time so less stressful! So, glad it is helping fill Aashini's tummy more too and helping her sleep better!

Great pics, as always! I love the look she has on the second pic "What,chu talkin' bout Willis?" LOL!!!

I will try and get the baby food info up on my blog later today, or tonight. I made babyfood for all my kids! It's so easy and so much healthier! I'm not sure what you guys have available over there, but I will try!

We started giving Peyton baby food about two weeks ago...a vegetable for lunch, fruit and some rice cereal for supper. She LOVES it! I think she could eat two containers of the fruit at night! Peyton stopped sleeping through the night a few weeks ago too...but I think because she finally learned to roll over on her tummy and she didn't like it. She was waking up every hour or so. It was miserable for us! But now she's sleeping much better! :)
