About 3 weeks ago Sara started exploring other food options other than Mommy's breastmilk....and boy was she excited to do so!! At first she was alittle put off by the different texture but once she realized that she gets to sit in her highchair and use her spoon she loved it. She loves being able to sit in the highchair along with Mommy and Daddy at the table. She really got into too...increasing the amount of cereal she was getting at a time and also increasing it to 2 times a day. Daddy has also really enjoyed the fact that Sara is eating cereal and other such foods shortly because he can become more involved in her feedings and it becomes an opportunity for the two of them to bond that was originally unavailable to him. It is also so hard to realize that Sara is geting so big so quickly. Her personality is really starting to shine in different instances...she laughs more, gives alittle frown, gets very intense with her talking.
The weather is also getting beautiful lately which has become such a plus because we are able to take Sara on walks and out to the park and other such places. It is also an exciting time in the house because I got offered a long time permanent sub position in a fourth grade classroom.It is from April to the end of the school year...however it is not contracted so we will just cross our fingers that it will open doors or provide another additional reference that I did a good job.
