Max is hilarious!
Well, after many months of inactivity, Ramona is finally shucking and jiving. She hearts playing with her feet (as seen above), and loves to roll around on the floor. She also seems to think that Max is funnier than pre-crazy Dave Chappelle. When he walks by her, she just laughs and laughs.....and he usually looks at her like, who is this kid? He seems a bit startled by the noises.
She is finally starting to like solid foods. We tried sweet potatoes from a jar yesterday, and she thought they were not disgusting. She made a face like they weren't very good, but as soon as you went to put the jar away, she started pointing and grabbing for the jar. So, I don't know if that means she likes solids, or she just likes looking at the jar. Either way, she put down a few bites.....which was much better than our past attempts.
I am currently starting up a moms group with Sabrina, so we are busy doing that. We are also going to start going to the Ballard Library for a read-aloud time for the young ones. It is during her naptime, so we'll see if it works (maybe it will just be a time for me to listen to stories peacefully while Ramona sleeps in my arms). Busy, busy, busy.
We drove up to Bellingham yesterday for a visit with Mary Lee and Mary Pearl. Unfortunately, Mary Pearl fell and broke her hip the other day, and has just had surgery. Everything went ok, and she seemed to be in good spirits. She really loved seeing Ramona, even though R.P. was a little grump-a-dump for the trip.
Currently, I am awaiting news on the birth of baby boy Milstead. Andrea went into labor this morning (early this morning), and we're all anxious to hear about the new baby. I'm hoping to visit tomorrow morning with Jenny. Too bad Justin is out of town at a work trip
