Weekly Review

This was another big week, lets see if I can remember it all.

On Monday, as I posted earlier, Rosemary turned 6 months!! My big girl really is a big girl! Such a bittersweet day that was. I love her so much, I just can't believe it's already been 6 months! Sometimes I can't believe it's only been 6 months she's been in my life. Funny how that works.

Wednesday Rosemary had her 6 month doctor visit and she now weights 13lb 7oz! She's on on the smaller side, but this is the first month in a while her doctor was happy with her weight gain. All that oatmeal and veggies are paying off in the weight department. Personally, I think she's huge! She did great with her vaccines too, only crying for about 30 seconds when they poked her. So brave.
Thursday my sister came over for a bit so the three of us had a nice day just hanging out.

We had work party for my husband on Friday night and that was really nice to go to. It was with coworkers of his I don't really know, but the food was good and I had some nice conversation with adults. Jackpot for stay at home Mom's! On an exciting note, I went to a girlfriend's house at 11:00PM! That's right, late night! I seriously can't remember the last time I did something like that. I stayed over until two just chatting and it was wonderful! It's amazing how little things like going out late and getting in some quality time with a friend really make me happy.

Saturday was a HUGE day. We have a tooth!! Rosemary has been extremely fussy the past week and a half and I seriously didn't think we were going to make it! OK, that's a bit extreme, but there were a few days in there that I thought the Colic really was coming back. Well, it turns out it was for good reason! My poor baby popped a tooth yesterday! I know it was yesterday because just the day before I was wondering about teething so I was feeling around in there. I'm so happy and sad for the tooth to finally come. Happy because my baby is such a big girl now! Sad for the same exact reason. My breasts are a little worried about teeth as well.

We also tried carrots yesterday which went over well along with everything else she's tried. I'm thinking they're not her favorite as when they were gone, she didn't get hysterical. This happens with every other food, so my guess is she thinks that carrots are just OK. I'm just glad she likes them enough to gobble them up and not spit them out! One more veggie in the like pile.

Today was my sister Jessica's Birthday celebration (Happy Birthday tomorrow Jessica!) so we were over at my parents for a few hours today doing that. Rosemary did great up until it was time to sing with the lights off. Not such a hit with a baby apparently. Then it was already her bedtime so we went home around 7:30. Of course it was another long evening in the nursery as those dang teeth remain to bother my poor baby!

Overall, it was another great week with lots of excitement as far Rosemary's advancement. Even excitement for Mom this week too!


  1. Congrats on the tooth! One of my twins is working on tooth #3, the other still has none. We say she's busy getting some hair finally (neither of them have hair!). My girls like carrots, too :)

  2. Yay for a tooth! We're working on one too...

  3. Way to go on the tooth, Rosemary!!!

  4. What an eventful week! One late night AND one tooth!! Can't beat that. ;o)

  5. Thanks everyone! We're pretty pumped about it. :) I feel like lately EVERY week has tons of growth!

    My baby is hardly a baby anymore!!!

  6. You really are hitting the stage where every week has tons of growth. Just wait-is it too early to tell you how quickly you will turn around and little Rosemary will want to drive your car??! Ahem, sorry.... one step at a time.

    Yay for the tooth and a happy 6month birthday to Ms Rosemary! Those toothy grinned pictures and smiles are just the sweetest.
    My daughter never cared for carrots much either, sweet potato though was another story! Same with son.

  7. Aw, they grow up so fast don't they? My almost 1 year old is working on some molars this week. Yikes, those make him cranky!
