32 weeks old and waving Bye-Bye!!!!!!

Happy Monday!!!  We had a great weekend together as a family and was so sad to see it end so quickly.  Our sweet baby girl turned another week older, it keeps happening faster than I can keep up with.  She is changing so fast and learning new things everyday!!!

So now at 32 weeks old (7 months) she has learned how to wave Bye-Bye to everyone coming or going.  It is so cute.  Its not really a bye bye but a curling of her fingers to her palm almost like a "come-here" movement.  But its so sweet. 
Things are going very well with her new babysitter Bonnie. She has been with us now for 3 weeks and Chloe has really taken a liking to her and it makes it so much easier for me to leave her during the day. When Bonnie comes over in the morning, she is all smiles when we leave and I know she has a good time with her l day. Because she is watching only Chloe she sometimes takes her out on errands with her during the day, so Chloe gets to travel to the doctor with her etc.

Baby girl is also up to eating 2 jars of food a day, well those pouches of baby food really.  For those of you not in the baby market, jarred food is going by the wayside and all manufacturers are packaging the food in the pouches with a twist off lid.  Its okay but I'm not overjoyed by the new way of doing things. Most of the time, I just push it into a bowl out of the pouch and dip it with a spoon to feed her.

She still just has 2 teeth as seen in this picture.  But I know she is teething and soon will have more, because everything goes in her mouth and she is constantly gnawing on everything she can get her hands on.  I was happy I actually caught this picture documenting her teeth because I have tried in the past and let's just say she was a bit uncooperative!!!  LOL
But she is such an easy going baby and so happy all the time, life is really so joyful with her in it.  As I watch some of my friends still struggling in the infertility journey my heart really does ache for them, I want them all to experience this amazing thing called parenthood.  One of my sweet friends just found out there was no heartbeat and the baby stopped growing last Thursday.  They have tried for so long and finally were successful after IVF and then to have it snatched from you seems so cruel.  There just are no words to ease the pain, but just be there and try to provide comfort and support.
We finally finished the bathroom remodel, and I have taken pictures all along to document the progress and it actually has turned out better than we could even imagine.  It cost us way more than we ever imagined also, but once you are in it- you have to finish it.  I'll do that post later in the week!!  Until then have a blessed one!!!
