Levitating butter.

I got new shoes!
It was 71 today so no need for long sleeves. We haven't seen her arms in months.

This week seems like it's lasted forever. We've all been sick with a cold this week. Violet has it now. Her eyes get all goopy when she gets a cold. This morning was the worst I've ever seen them. She couldn't even open her right eye it was so crusty and gross. We've also had a problem all week with her drinking. She's been refusing her bottles ever since tuesday. We called the doctor to see if we could switch to whole milk and got the ok. That hasn't really helped. She doesn't want it in a bottle or in a sippy cup. Today I held her down and she finally took it. Maybe she'll get over this funk by monday.

We've been trying to work with Violet in the evenings on her crawling skills. When you try to put her on her knees she locks her legs and stands there like this. She'll stand like this for a while and start laughing.

So then we try putting all her toys out of reach. This sends her into a fit. She'll just look at the toy then look at us.

Last night her toys of choice where her Alphabet Snail and empty butter container. As you can see she looks like she's going to go after them. But all she's really doing is reaching as far as she can. When she realizes she can't reach them she waves her hands in the air, starts crying, and then wilts. Wilting is what we call it when she starts crying and puts her head down to the floor while she's sitting. She usually does this really slowly.

We tormented her for about 15 minutes till she was wore out. This looks like a fake cry. BooHoo.

I'm getting conflicting info on the web. Any one have any advice to quitting pumping. I started out gradually and have stopped all together as of a week ago. I went three days at the beginning with no pain. I've tried just about everything to ease the pain. Nothing is working. Any suggestions? I'm about ready to go back to pumping.

I know how to take my socks off and try to put them back on. I can also try and brush my hair. I can take the lid off a butter container (washed of course) put a block in it, close the lid then shake it up. I can ride my little car. I know who Dada, Ivy and Willow are. I can take my foam bathtub ABC's and stick them to the side of the tub and take them off and put them in the cup when Mommy says too. I can wave and play Patty cake. I know who some of my stuffed animals are. I can play PeekaBoo with a blanket. But I still can't figure out how to crawl!
