Earlier this week I was standing in line at the bank, I put my hand in my coat pocket. I can only imagine my face when I encountered something foreign, and uncertain of what it was, produced one of these:

to do but play outside, I still love snow days. Today was a great one.
There is just something awesome about being able to shower, put your
PJ's back on and just stay warm and dry. We spent a lot of time on the
floor today; Kayla is really close to pushing up on all fours. Awesome
I didn't venture out into the wind and snow today, but I hope to
tomorrow. I want to get some pictures, hopefully of Kayla too since we
didn't get any of what was technically her first snowfall two weeks ago.
For now, I'm going to put her to bed and go downstairs for a mug of
hot buttered rum. Then I plan to get some sleep myself. Goodnight!

So last week I got to thinking about adding a little bit more into her evening feeding, just to see how it would go. I did a little reading and thinking about what I wanted to try next. Friday I stopped at the grocery store and grabbed some frozen carrots and peas. We steamed a few carrot slices and pureed them for her. As with the first bit of cereal, the initial reaction wasn't very good. Within a few bites though, we had a smile! She seems to enjoy carrots so far. She's gotten a tablespoon or so of them each of the last 4 nights. Since we didn't have any adverse reactions, I'm thinking of trying the peas starting tonight. I don't know how that's going to go since they're not quite as sweet as everything else she's been fed so far. If that goes well, maybe we'll try our first fruit this weekend.
Hopefully I'll have a little time and energy after the small one goes to bed tonight and I will be able to add some pictures to this post. If I don't get to it then, this weekend for sure!
