Elsa Louise at 40 weeks

Elsa's 40th week fell on Holy week so we went with bunny ears instead of a hat. Humor me OK? 


Our newly turned 9 month old had her check up this week on the 3rd of April. She was 24 pounds, 10 ounces and 27 inches long. No wonder my arms are tired! 
Her hair is really starting to fill in in the back but it's looking like we won't have another curly haired girl. Julia's curls were obvious by this length. I'm more than a little sad about this fact. I really wanted them to both have the same hair. We could have avoided the whole jealousy/grass is greener issue if it was the same. *sigh*

In other news...we started solids on the 3rd. I baked a sweet potato and set her up with a few pieces at dinner time. This is the result:

I was very surprised that she didn't care for them. I tried some mashed avocado later and that she liked a little better, but not much! What seemed to work the best was to let her suck the food off of my finger. I made brown rice porridge on the 5th but she wasn't all that impressed with that either.  We'll continue to take it slow.....no need to rush since she's healthy and growing already.


Diaper Details: Another week in the Flip diaper. What can I say? I really like these diapers!

  1. If I can keep breastfeeding Molly I'm going to skip solids for quite sometime. They gain more weight off of milk anyway...My supply is in and out but getting better. Elsa is just so cute. Her expressions are priceless!
