At the beach.
Feeling the sand for the first time with her friend Devyn.
With Aunt Kris.
All bundled up on a windy day.
Hi all!! Alida had her first beach experience this past week. She loved it!! The ocean waves captivated her and the feel of the sand on her little toes made her squeal!! It was adorable! We spent 3 days in LBI with Mom-Mom and a few of her friends. Alida adapted so easily to her new surroundings. She took her regular naps and slept the nights through without incident (well, except for one 3 am feeding). I have to say that time and again she impresses me!!
She is still growing like a weed! She was at the docs about 2 weeks ago....she weighed 13 lbs 13 oz and was 25 inches long. We started cereal (oatmeal and rice), she seems to be ok with it....not too excited but she eats it pretty well.
Alida has apparently decided that she doesn't really want to take the bottle anymore, which has been an issue for some time but after getting better has gotten worse again. We've tried different nipples and different bottles but she just seems to really like nursing more than anything. It's a really hard thing to deal with....the guilt is not easily dismissed :-( All I can do is hope that God finds a way for me to be with her more and more each day.
