Fat Tuesday

Today is fat Tuesday..which only means one thing--I will be ignoring it and trying to stay away from any kind of "Fat Tuesday" type food, and stick to running.  Our church has an all you can eat pancake dinner tonight...if we didn't have a wedding in 7 months I would be there in a second!

I think Charlotte may still be teething.  It's really hard to tell with her, because she is a generally happy, content baby.  She has been waking a lot more at night and just talking to herself, which is unusual..and is still gnawing on EVERYTHING.  I guess more fussing then usual, but I hear most babies scream when teething (which she really never does) so I am just holding my breath for now.

I thought maybe a paci would help CG with her teething, but she had no idea what to do with it!  I tried to help her, but she would gag and spit it out.  Our little girl is a definite thumb sucker--but only at night.  I think I can handle that.  She then took the soothie and started using it like a teething ring.  She was going to town!

I think I mentioned she has been sucking on her bottom lip.  She was doing this about a month ago, and I thought maybe she was just exploring, but I think it  may feel good on her gums? It's pretty cute either way.

We started carrots yesterday.  So far...she hates them.  I am starting to wonder if she is going to want to drink milk forever...solid foods are just not going well right now.  Sometimes she seems interested, but most of the time she just wants to chew on the spoon, or gets distracted by her bib.  Maybe this has to do with teething too?  Any advice??

Happy Fat Tuesday everyone!!  I hope someone eats a big piece of King's cake for me :)

    That was a GREAT idea getting her pacifier out! I was thinking maybe something smaller to hold would keep her busy! The teeth have to come in< so chewing on the pacy may help them get thru faster! Did you rub your finger on her gums? I bet one may be coming thru soon!!
    Did she try any other friut yet? I bet she will LOVE fruit~~much sweeter than vegetables!

  3. wow, those cheeks are the cutest!!
    i have a whole post written about my camera here:
