Maisy's First Pony Tail at 23 weeks old

Maisy on a walk with Daddy showing off her cute pony!!

Happy Veteran’s day everyone!

Today was also the first day that Maisy sported a pony tail, not any normal pony tail, but a sassy side pony tail!  She’s bringing the 80’s back!  Just wait til you see her in her leg warmers (seriously she has them!)  ha ha.  Todd and I think it’s just the cutest.  She doesn’t love that every time she goes down for a nap I take it out and then put the pony in again when she wakes up, but I’m slightly paranoid about leaving it in unattended.

We also have started giving Maisy her special lovey (named Froggy) that a family friend gave her when she goes to sleep.  Maisy loves it and goes to sleep with it day and night.  She likes to hold on to it while she sucks her right index finger.  Thank goodness we have 2 other loveys given to us as gifts that we can trade out when Froggy needs to take a bath.

This morning we tried bananas alone, without the cereal, following Nana’s suggestion, and she liked them more but still didn’t like them.  I made her a sweet potato today and froze most, but fed her a few teaspoons for dinner.  She ate a few bites, let me rephrase, she tolerated a few bites.  We’ll just have to keep on trying- she’ll eventually have to eat I imagine, because, dang, those kids at school are really going to be making fun of her if she’s still breastfeeding in kindergarten!

Speaking of eating, Maisy and I went to meet Angie and Rowan for lunch today.  I’m glad we were in loud California Pizza Kitchen, because as soon as the food showed up Maisy started fussing/yelling.  I’ve never been out to a restaurant with Maisy without Todd.  I can guarantee I won’t be taking her out alone without my tag team partner Todd again anytime soon!  Despite Maisy’s protest, it was still good to catch up with Angie and see Rowan, who was perfectly behaved and a coloring genius, by the way.

I see you!!

Maisy is still not sleeping through the night.  She usually goes to bed between 6:30 and 7 and wakes up between 10:30 and 11:30, then again between 3 and 4 then is up for the day between 7 and 8:30 (I prefer 8:30).  So I usually only have to get up once between 3 and 4, so it’s not so bad, but not so perfect either- but we are getting better.

I seriously cannot believe how time is flying.  I love every day and every moment I get to spend with her and just immensely enjoy watching her as she does anything!

Much love to all- Todd, Becky and Maisy
