Ramona's Book (0-12 months)

A good friend of mine told me about an awesome website, You can design, publish and sell books online. So, of course, I had to try it. I made a book of Ramona's first year of life for her upcoming birthday. Hopefully I will keep it up and make one for each year. If you want to see my work of art you can preview it here. If you are at all interested in making a book, I highly recommend this website. It was so easy and I now I have a forty page, one of a kind, book-o-memories for only $30! You can't beat that!

Ramona is eating solid food!!!!! It has only taken 10 1/2 months for her to start liking anything but breast milk. I was so afraid that I would be that woman nursing the 10 year old. Now hopefully after her first birthday, I can start weaning her. (Please, God!) It has been almost 2 years since I have been either breast feeding someone or growing someone in my body. I'm ready to have a glass of wine in the evening without being terrified that Ramona will wake up hungry the second the alcohol touches my lips. (She has impeccable timing.) 

Now, please enjoy the photos of today's snack time. Strawberry yogurt is yummy...and messy.

Holy Teething Baby, Batman!

Ramona is working on 4 teeth growing in. That will bring her to 6 teeth total. Her new favorite past time is grinding them together. Not a fun sound. Also, she has her second cold this cold and flu season. The first lasted 3 weeks and then we had a week off, now she is coughing with a runny nose again. So, she is not very happy, therefore not sleeping much. The nights are long in the Chalman house.
