little baby

Well our monthly weight check was today and it was a little disappointing. At 8 months emolyn is only 11 lbs 11 oz. she had been gaining a pound  month and this month we only got 11 oz. Oh well. i know she is still growing and what a cutie huh! She is becoming even more active scooting around and almost always moving, I think she burns too many calories being a barrel of fun!
I made 2 soups last week, roasted red pepper and tomato. it was so fun and they were pretty good! We have also been making a ton of apple sauce and pear sauce with all the apples we got from Randy and Linda's trip to Wisconsin and from a flat of pears my mom bought. It is so easy to make it in the crock pot, what a breeze and delicious!

I think you're right about all the activity burning more calories.

Is the doc concerned? I've heard of preemie-moms adding a bit of oil (veg or olive--not sure) to their kiddos' food for a time to add calories.

SUCH a pretty girl!

Totally off the subject here but I noticed in one of Aunt Linda's pics you had a hand held vacuum and it looks like the one we have been wanting...does it work well? Do you like it? Thinking I am going to get one soon now that we have wood floors and it was be a cinch to get out instead of the big one! Thanks and Emolyn is just soo pretty! can't wait to see her

Emolyn IS so cute! She looks so much bigger. I was looking at pictures from when she was first born and she really has grown a lot. And she's beautiful! And such a fun, delightful little girl!

So, you're comment about the crockpot applesauce had me googling to find a recipe so I can make it for Micah. I came across this blog which I thought was fun and wanted to share with you. crockpot365.blogspot.com - this woman's New Year's resolution for 08 was to use her crockpot everyday. Funny. Looks like there's some good recipes.
