Bath time

As I've mentioned in prior posts, Westyn LOVES her baths. If she is fussy or whiny, the moment Troy says it's bath-time she starts smiling and jumping all around. My bath experience is minimal as Troy decided from the get go that he was in charge of baths, which I think is so cute. Last night she was just too cute to pass up a photo-op, especially with her little plumbers' crack.

Look at that little crack... and her tails of hair, should I try a ponytail?? I thought for a moment last night I saw some curls but I think I was making it up.

This little girl sure does melt my heart

Westyn is becoming a little girl more and more every day. She is so so crazy but I love it! She has such a little personality and is such a happy baby. Sunday was her 7 month "birthday", and daily I can see changes in her with how she plays with toys or her looks that she gives me or how she is becoming so aware of her surroundings.... This whole motherhood gig is amazing and I wouldn't give it up for the world.

HELP Mommies!!!

This may be a very strange post to many of you but I really need some suggestions for my poor boobies. Westyn has her two front bottom teeth and she has been biting me lately while nursing. While it is impossible to bite down while sucking as their tongue covers their bottom teeth, she will every now and then stop, pull her tounge away and BITE ME! This is posing quite a problem for her and I as I'm very committed to nursing for the first year.

Any suggestions would be great!

Jubilee Farms

Yesterday afternoon Troy and I took Westyn to Jubilee Farm to pick some pumpkins and grab my bother & sil's share of fruit and veggies for the week (they were to busy so they offered it to us). Jubilee Farm is a wonderful place out in Carnation where they grow nothing but organic fruits and vegetables and have the option of buying your produce on a seasonal/weekly basis through their family share program. We had gone before when they were out of town in July but that was nothing compared to a Fall Saturday afternoon. After we grabbed our share of the carrots, mixed greens, leeks, kale, heirloom tomatoes, the list goes on and on, we jumped on the hay ride with all the other millions of young family's and went to the pumpkin patch and picked our pumpkins. We usually go to Remlinger Farms but after trying out Jubilee we are hooked. I HIGHLY recommend checking it out as it may have been the best Saturday we have ever had.

To make the night even better, the Vergheses came over for dinner and a bit of play time with Calum & Westyn. I'm sure going to miss them when they leave, especially that beautiful little guy of theirs.

Ohh - one more thing, Westyn is crawling.. CRAZY FUN!

Here are a few pictures from this past week...
