My boobs were my tools of the trade for almost 20 months.

Once my youngest daughter weaned herself from the Magical Boob Juice, the fun really began!

(And by fun we all know I mean chaos!)

Pull up a chair, sit a while, read a few pages.

Keep and open mind and a joyful heart and you too can get pumped into the world of The Milk Maid.


Ava is 6 months old!

Little Miss Sweetie Pants is 6 months old today! Where has the time gone?!

Saturday we went to the mall and had some great photos made. We bought A LOT of pictures, but it was sooo much less expensive that the girl who did our last portraits. I can go to this place (The Picture People) and spend a 1/5 less AND take photos home (framed if I want) THAT DAY. We had pics made, viewed and chose what we wanted, and were done and on the way home with framed photos in about 2 hours.

We reached a milestone Saturday, much to mommy's surprise. Ava can sit up by herself for short bursts that last anywhere from 5 seconds to about 30 seconds! I learned this at the mall while having the photos made.

In other Ava news: She's eating solids now. I was very hesitant to start her too soon. I had originally intended on waiting until right at the 6 month mark before starting her on any solids. She had such an interest in what we were eating that I started giving her rice cereal and it blossomed from there. She loves all the stage 1 fruits and most of the veggies. She still is a huge boobie-baby though.... at least I can go to the grocery store and not worry so much about her not eating anything.

Here are the photos from Saturday:
