I'm so thankful for being able to wake up and see my beautiful daughter smile, she fills my life with so much joy, and just so much love between my husband and I! So what did you wake up being thankful for this morning? Maybe that you were able to sit and read the morning paper while sipping on a hot cup of coffee. Just these simple things in life and we must remember to stop and thank God for without him we wouldn't be able to enjoy these things! Life with an 8 month old, I absolutely love it! She keeps me busy! (Love every minute of it) She's all over the place, and has such a loving personality. Her smile can light up a room. We have moved on to more solids, and we have even tried whole milk yogurt for the first time this month. She seemed to enjoy it, but we will wait and see how she does the next time around. We love making her baby food, I know exactly what is going in it! List of foods we have tried so far: Yellow Squash, sweet potato, green beans, asparagus, banana, turkey, chicken, butternut squash, carrots, red apple, green apple, and mango! Hopefully I'm not missing something. So our daughters two bottom teeth are in, and now is when all those teething toys, wet wash clothe, and other teething items come in handy. :) So it's now 8 months, and I'm still breastfeeding (and she now has teeth) its good and bad! Let me start off with what's good about it..I'm able to give her all the antibodies, and nutrients she needs through my breast milk, and it's now been 8 months of exclusive breast milk! (I'm super proud of myself) Now what's bad about it is now she likes to bite! Ouch! I'm just thankful that I've been able to make it this far with breastfeeding. Make sure you have positive people and resources around if you decide on breastfeeding, it makes a BIG difference! Well today was a great day, and I hope you all have had a lovely day! Until next time, have a beautiful day!
