Leah likes this little tag blanket my mom got her, and Joshua likes to put it on her head:
On another note, we celebrated a long-awaited accomplishment yesterday--Leah had a poopy diaper! As funny as that sounds, it is true. She'd gone WEEKS without a dirty diaper, and we were starting to get really worried. She'd been wetting diapers like normal, but that was it. I found some baby food prunes in a bag of baby food a friend from church had given us, and I hoped they'd be the solution. This was Leah's first solid food, and I'm not sure how much of it even ended up in her tummy! As soon as I would put a spoonful in her mouth, those little fingers would pop right back in her mouth, and the food would get all over her hand...which she would then wipe all over her face, bib, outfit, and chair. What a mess! Eventually, I had to hold both of her little hands in my left hand and feed her with my right hand to keep the food from getting everywhere...and then she decided it was fun to blow raspberries and get the prunes all over the place that way.
It seems that she got enough food in her belly because after eating some prune baby food Tuesday night, Wednesday morning, and Wednesday at lunch time, we had a VERY full dirty diaper yesterday afternoon and another one this morning--hooray! Baby Leah's not stopped up anymore :)
And in the last couple of weeks, one of her bottom middle teeth has broken through the gum, so she beat her brother's first tooth by a few weeks (she'll be 6 months next Friday).
pretty gross, I could still just eat her up :)
(Look at all the food on that bib!)
