I took Ave's to the doctor for her booster flu shot so she got weighed and measured on the 10th. She is 20 lbs 12 oz and 30 inches long.
She has grown in length but not too much on her weight. Part of that reason is because she refuses to eat solids!!!!!!!! It is so incredibly frustrating and exhausting! She will not eat off a spoon any more. no matter what the food is, she sees that baby spoon come at her and she throws a fit! She will eat finger foods, a few bites anyways, so I think she just wants to feed herself instead of me doing it. That's all I can guess anyways. She loves to eat bananas if I hold it and she can take bites off it; she will not eat it if I chop it up and give her small pieces. (picky picky!!) Likewise, she LOVES french fries and all of those Gerber snacks. If I were to let her she would eat a whole can of the Gerber cheese puff things and yogurt bites. At least they aren't too bad for her. I can get her to nibble on chicken fries and green beans, but those are hit and miss.
Anyways, the doctor said not to worry that she will catch on soon and get hungry enough that she will eat. I just need to be persistent in making 3 sit down meals to give her a routine.
Here's a few things on my list of things I've noticed she has done this month:
-looking under rugs
She will literally look at you, stick her tongue out and spit! If you repeat it, she thinks its a game and will keep doing it. It's pretty cute, but I need to get onto her at this point to teach her that's not nice; especially when she does it to me if I get onto her for getting rocks out of the fireplace!
-gets mad when things are taken from her
-predictable and regular night time sleep
-waves hello and bye bye
-blows bubbles with drool
A few months ago I saw this piece in the Potterybarn magazine:
I fell in love with it and thought it would be perfect for in our master bedroom. I would use it to get a lot of our "office" supplies out of our guest bedroom closet now that I have a laptop. The only hitch was that it was $899 for the top and bottom pieces together. That was WAY more than we wanted to spend.
So, I went to my father-in-law. He is an AWESOME carpenter and craftsman so I thought I would see if he could make something similar for cheaper.
Sure enough, he could! Here it is:
