I got Juliet a whole baked potato the other day, so that she could try and eat pieces... Just like she did with the avacado and banana. It was funny becasue she would put her hands in it, and then pull away.... it seems she didn't like the squishyness! A bit weird especially seeing as she loved squishing the avacado. Anyway, I fed her some with a spoon, which she loved, and then she wanted to feed herself... which meant BIG messes!
Juliet is sitting up now. She LOVES riding in shopping carts. It's funny, in the shopping cart, or in a highchair, she puts one of her hand on the bar and then rocks back and forth, with her other hand in the air. Just like a bronco rider! It's waaayyy too cute.

I have an old house. It was built in 1890 and one of the things I did when I moved in way refinish the beautiful original wood floors. I LOVE these floors. However, they squeek! I've been transitioning Juliet to her crib and she goes down great, but every time I sneak out of the room- crreeeeaaaak- DD's head pops up and she looks for me.... I go back to her side.... *pat**pat**pat*.... DD drifts back off.... I sneak... creeeeeeeeaaakkkk.... DD's head pops up.... *whine*..... I rush back to DD's side..... *pat**pat**pat*.... head down.......
It only took me 12 tries to get out of the room tonight. I wonder if WD40 works on wood floors LOL

I haven't shared any pictures in a while (other than our avacado earlier), so I thought I would do so! I'm burning the midnight (2am?) oil anyway- so why not?
I call this one her "rockstar" look:
She loves the outdoors, but isn't so sure about grass yet
Styling in our new MeiTai- I had to tuck her head in to modify the hip carry somewhat because we were caught in a thinder storm... she stayed nice and dry- me, not so much!
And Ninja is FINALLY warming up to her- but only when she's asleep and not moving of course!!

Juliet tried avacado for the first time today. Oh the mess!!! She wasn't real thrilled with the first bite, but she had fun squishing, and then realised she liked the taste after all!

I'm so close to being done with school... so freaking close.... and nothing is lining up. Both Anthropology and History have told me that my GPA dropped too low to graduate with honors. However, the grades have not been fixed. My History thesis took so long that the grade rolled to E's, which brings down my GPA. If those are fixed I'm POSITIVE that I'll still qualify, especially seeing as I got a B for my Anthro thesis, and an A and B this semester... But not knowing is a pain, espeically seeing as I HAVE to get my degree over the summer to get any funding for next semester, and ESPECIALLY because I want to use my funding to live for a few months so I can not work and just study and get my MA DONE.
If there was a pulling-my-hair-out symbol I'd put it here.

So working in an ER and with a child I've seen just about everything and nothing- or almost nothing- grosses me out anymore. Until today. DD had a poo-splosion (which I've been waiting for it's been 3 days since she last went) and I was getting her changed. As I took the diaper off she swung her legs and got poop all over her feet. Gross... but we've done this before- so I quick grab a wipe so I can wipe them off.... but DD was quicker than me. Her newest thing is chewing on her feet...... and as I was grabbing the wipe.... she was grabbing her foot (can you see where this is going?).... and putting it
(I must say- the look on her face as she tasted poo was priceless, and if I wasn't gagging I may have been laughing)

It is almost time for me to get out the baby gates. Juliet is working very very hard on crawling right now, and is so close to getting it. It won't be long now before she's fully mobile. Right now she's on her tummy in front of the TV stand. I didn't put her there. She was on her tummy on her play mat- about a foot away. I'm sooo not ready for a moving baby. Well, at least she waited until school was almost done so I didn't have to worry about it while I was studying!

I had a great time at the formal the other night. It was nice to have some 'adult' time. It was also nice that when I came home Juliet was fast asleep and just wanted cuddles. Ahhhh these are the moments I love! Here is a picture of the dress I wore.

I can't believe she is 6 months old already! She's growing up waaaaayyy too fast. This week she had decided to try and start crawling (video below- sorry about the tv noise, i was standing right next to it when I took the video) and stand unsupported. My days with an unmobile child are numbered!

Here are a couple of pics from Wendy's birthday party last weekend. It shows my newer (shorter!) hair. I've also uploaded a video of the Hula contest! (And before you tell me off for posting two blogs in one day that I was supposed to be studying- I got one of the three essays done :p)
Oh and my random thought for the day... did you know I'm going to be 30 this year??? EEEEK
I'm so bad. I have three major essays to write this weekend, and Connie nicely kept Juliet for the day so I could get some writing done and what am I doing? Reading Kellymom and writing in my blog *blush*
