We've had our first foray into Baby Led Weaning (where the baby feeds themselves- skipping puree's), and while we've done some puree stuff, most of her food will be introduced this way. Anyway, I got some REALLY cute pics and wanted to share :)
Yes I want that!
Whoops that's slippery

So today was a GREAT day. No Juliet didn't STTN (sleep through the night), in fact her naps were terrible today (the phone and doorbell kept waking her), we're both still sick and have coughs but it was still a great day. Why? Well I called the Pedi this AM about Juliets cough. It's just a cold, but I wanted to find out anything I needed to watch out for to indicate that it was more than just a cold. The Pedi informed me that I was one of her favorite mums, because I didn't stress the little things, because I was breastfeeding, and because I was a supermum for doing it all alone! And then I had a mum, who just came back to work after having her LO. She made a comment to a coworker that she was soo stressed and feeling like a failure, and then she said that she shouldn't complain because she had someone to help her (he husband) and that she had nooo idea how I do it and that I am an amazing person for being able to do it all and be positive.
So YAY to compliments!

I got a letter in the mail today. It contains the news I have been waiting for for so long (although I already knew the answer)... Jon is 99.99% positive he is Juliets father. (DUH). So the next court date is set for May 8th. I'm not looking forward to a fight in anyway, but I am glad it's finally here- it's only 6 months coming!

Oh, I wish I was an Oscar Mayer weiner,
that is what I'd truly like to be,
'cause if I were an Oscar Mayer weiner,
everyone would be in love with me
Blame Sue Grouse- I've been singing that stupid thing for about 8 hours now! I can't get it out of my head!

I don't know what it is- the last few days I can't stop thinking about Dad. Maybe it's the research project I'm working on (Mourning and Funerals in Early Modern Period), or maybe it's just that Juliet has changed so much. I saw a funeral car pocessiom the other day and started to cry. I couldn't even bring myself to call Scott on his birthday because he is using Dad's cell- it just feels like it would be wrong to ever dial that number again and not talk to him. I wish he could hear Juliet laugh..... I don't know why this is hitting me now.

When I dropped Juliet off at Amy's today I was doing our usual "hand off" report (did she nap, did she eat etc) and told Amy how fussy she's been the last couple of days and that she seems almost ready to roll from back to front as she keeps trying. Amy looked at me and said "Oh she's been doing that for a while now".
well drat- I guess I missed it! She's never done it at home, but I guess she rolls to her tummy to go to sleep at Amy's.... imagine that.

So ignore the weird angle and crappy image and turn up your sound- because here is a video of Juliet giggling like crazy:
And here are some images from our newest food adventure- Green Beans! She wasn't so thrilled with them the first two times, but as you can see from these, she's liking the green beans.
This goes Here- I think

I took Juliet to a party today and we went swimming! It's official- I gave birth to a fish. She LOVED the water, and got really upset when it was time to get out. The only reason we got out was because her hands and feet were blue. Maybe I'll enroll her in swim lessons- They have them for babies.
(And yes, I am wearing a suit- the strap broke and my tata's are so big the damn thing kept sliding down)

Juliet LOVES animals. She's reaching for the cats now (who are tolerating her) and loves Amy's dogs. While I was down in Binghamton we introduced her to Aria- Aunt Mary and Uncle Steve's dog. Every time the dog came near her she giggled- and I got the CUTEST picture- I really really wish it was clearer!
As many of you may remember I spent a lot of time when I came back from Australia tyring to catch up on my school work. I felt totally stressed out and like I couldn't handle the load. I was being a bad mummy- ignoring my daughter to study, I wasn't sleeping enough (only 2 or 3 hours a night)... I was basically a wreck. Well last night I got the essay back. I read 300 pages in 2 days and wrote the 10 page essay in one night (in between Juliets naps) and got about 7 hours of sleep all weekend.... Guess what...
I GOT AN A!!!!
And not only did I get an A, the professor wrote on the paper that it was the best one in the class YEEEEHAW. I finally feel like the lack of time that I have for Juliet, the lack of sleep.... it's all worth it. I can do this, I only have one year to go... and it's hard- but It's doable.
