And this is what she looks like for half of the day. Justin and I think she looks like a little hillbilly boy! :) It's too funny!!!The other morning I set her applesauce on the table while I was cooking her some oatmeal for breakfast. I turned around and to my surprise found her helping herself.
I guess it's just hard for me to realize that my little baby is growing up and can do things without my help. Since then she has also become very insistent that she feed herself. (She's feed herself finger foods for a long time, but with liquidy stuff I've always just fed her). Although it's very messy, it seems I can get her to eat better if she has some say in it. We usually both arm ourselves with a spoon, so she can feed herself a little bite and then I'll feed her a big bite - it's working pretty good.
In other news Justin is off moose hunting. So the girls are just hanging here at home. It gets pretty lonely here at night without daddy, but I guess we'll take 2 weeks of him being gone rather than a deployment (so I really shouldn't be complaining!). We are headed down to Utah next month and are so excited. We're going down for Easton's baby blessing and my little sister Kristy's wedding!!! Yep she just got engaged!!! CONGRATS KRISTY AND DUSTIN!!!
