the dr. said that we could start with some solids now and so we did rice cereal first which was pretty uneventful, other than mia would gargle it and splatter it all over me. then we decided to do carrots. well, i didn't realize that solids come up just as easily as regular spit up, and if you take the bib off prior to the spit up, it sort of defeats the purpose. well, the carrots didnt sit well, and seemed to make the spit up worse, so we will be waiting a bit longer before we do any other solid foods.
jonas' second favorite chore is washing the bedding because he gets rolled up in the sheets, gets to throw the pillows, and jump on the bed. today he asked if baby sister could jump too. he is just too funny
so we decided to finish our backyard. we had the sprinklers and grass done for us, but we are putting in the retaining wall and patio ourselves. we were able to find some great rocks for the wall, but boy were they heavy! and my hands hurt so bad.. it will be nice once its all finished and we can enjoy it. hopefully the brown spots will green up.
well. we did it. we finally did it. and this is the end result. after much debate and sadness we went through with it. i think that it will be easier, but i'm still sad.
the before picture. too bad we cant stick the cut off pieces onto mia somehow..
