Scarlett tried bananas this evening! No pictures, but she reacted about the same way as she did the first time she had rice can imagine her face! I'm bummed that Scarlett is not loving fruit! I skipped the rest of veggies, so that I could get to the good stuff, but after trying blueberries, watermelon, and bananas (& Grammum may have snuck a MUNCHKIN to Scarlett while I wasn't looking!), it seems that she is content on living off of breast milk forever!!! Secretly, that makes me happy--I'm enjoying nursing while I can! :)

Tons has happened since my last blog...

Scarlett's first 4th of July!

Alyssa loved the sparklers!

We visited Frank's grave...

Scarlett watching as Tyler dug the holes

My flowers are the pink ones!

The 3 of us at the graveyard!

We went to the pool with Auntie Molly & Alyssa Lou!

Alyssa was more interested in the sunscreen!

And we celebrated my 27th birthdayyyy!

Fun was had by all, but mostly Alyssa! She was really excited that it was, "Auntie Heg's birthday!" and was the center of attention for the day! (As it should be!) Look at her eyeing my cake...she definitely blew out all 27 candles by herself! I loved my cake the best though...

"Happy Birthday Auntie Heg"

Along with blowing out my candles, Alyssa also assisted in opening some (all!) of my presents. Such a great helper...until she starts to give the presents to Grammum...

This was by far my best birthday yet...!

And tonight is a big night for Scarlett...she is sleeping in her bassinet with a pacifier instead of in bed with us. We'll see how it goes, but I'm already sad about not sleeping and snuggling with her all night!!! Maybe we'll put off moving into the bassinet for good for a few more months...!


  1. :) I so miss having a baby to snuggle... Cherish it. Happy Birthday!

  2. I'm trying to just soak it all in...and never let her grow up!
