6 month Appointment

Tori had her 6 month appointment this morning. Everything is A OK!!! A very healthy little girl :)

She weighed in at 16lb. 12 oz, so she gained 2lbs 7oz since her 4 month appointment, and she is now 26.5inches long, which was an increase of 1.

The doctor is very pleased with her. She was perfectly happy with our feeding schedule. And advised that beings she's been on solids for 2 months now, she can now start having meat. I've taken out some chicken tenders and some pork loin. I'll be poaching the chicken and then pureeing and I'll be baking the pork and then pureeing. She can now also start to have pasta. But it must be pureed as well.

I was worried because my milk supply had taken a downward spiral, but the doctor said this was normal once they start eating solids. As long as she continues to gain weight, there will be no problems.

Praise God for my beautiful and healthy Angelbear.

Yes I'm a Slacker :|

Well hello everyone!!! I know long time know update. My apologies. We have all been good. Babybear turned 6 months old on the 12th of this month. I totally can't believe that she is that old. I wonder where the time has gone.

The Bear is doing wonderfully. She now rolls over and over and over...she sits up by herself. She talks like there is no tomorrow (must get that from Nana), she love to play in the water. She now LOVES to be on her tummy, she will spend hours in her Exersaucer and Baby Einstein Jumper, she eats solids twice a day and loves them, she loves all of her vegetables (thank you Lord), she enjoys standing up on her legs and bouncing, overall, she's just AMAZING!!! God has blessed me with an amazing child to call mine....

In other news, my nephew turned 1 on April 23rd, Victor and I celebrated 4 years of marriage on the same day. I can't believe it's been that long, seems just like a couple of months. I'm very fortunate to have a supportive, kind, caring and loving husband/father for my child. I've been working at the sign shop 2 days a week. I take Bear with me, then at lunch time I zoom over to my sister's and drop her off. She likes being with her cousins. And it gives me some time to get other work done that can't be done at the computer. I'm learning the sign program and it is really cool. I've done a couple of quotes, weeded vinyl, designed a door sign, and some other odds & ends. Once again thank God I have a wonderful friend.

Well anyways, here's a couple of pictures to pass the time through

Tori outside in her exersaucer, the 2nd one is what happens when Daddy gets home from work...she's all smiles.

Over at Nana's house....this is a swing that is a hammock. It's AWESOME. And the baby loves it as you can see.

On our way to the mall...I bought her a new umbrella stroller. She really enjoys it...and like the bright colors to boot. :)

And last but not least, this is the Birthday Cake I made for my nephew Brandon... It's all home made, from the cake batter to the butter cream icing, and hand piped by yours truly :)
