What is fun is watching my little one eat solids. So far we've just given her rice cereal. She loves it. Today I bought carrots and green beans at the farmers' market. I steamed and pureed the carrots and we're going to give those a try tomorrow. I hope to make the majority of her food but we'll see how it goes. I used our blender and it didn't work the greatest in terms of getting a smooth puree. Are those special baby blenders/bullets worth it?
We're all settled, for the most part, into our new home. When my husband and I decided we were going to move, we spent a lot of time looking at houses online. We must have looked at hundreds before the this one came on the market. It was the only house we had a realtor show us in person. And we made an offer the same night. Erik and I aren't really "go with your gut" kind of people. I do tons of research and Erik is usually very thoughtful about big purchases. But for some reason with this house we just knew it was meant to be. And I really really love it. It felt like home the first night we slept here. Juliet's nursery is being recreated as closely as I can to the one she had at our other house. I was a bit sad packing up the place we brought our precious girl home from the hospital to. But this is a new chapter and we'll have lots of new memories here.
Erik, Juliet and I are heading to a wedding this weekend and will be staying in a hotel. Hopefully it goes smoothly. And hopefully I'll be enjoying a few glasses of wine at the wedding and doing a little thing called relaxing, which is not a term I've been very familiar with lately.
