I am glad you mommas posted, I do think of you and your babes! I know we bump into one another in other communities from time to time, but it was nice to hear directly how things are going.

We are good. Miss M is now eight months, still breastfeeding and cloth diapering and cosleeping and babywearing and all that good stuff.

She's got her two bottom teeth and has taken to solids quite well, which I thought might buy me some time to myself out of the house without baby, but she still loves her boobikins the most, so it might be a while before I get some real "me" time.

We offer her tastes of pretty much whatever we eat (within reason) and she has proven to be a fan of falafel, curried chicken, and asperagus, but not so much the pureed baby fruits I try to give her. She has taken to organic Tastey Os as well.

She is sitting and rocking on hands and knees, sometimes scooting backwards across the wood floors, but has not figured out at all how to move forward to get what she wants, which leads to much frustarion for her (and me).

Sleep isn't her thing. No, she still wakes every 2 hours or so. Once in a while I get a 4 hour stretch, but usually she does that in the daytime (of course).

Sadly, today she has her first cold and it is a doozy (I have to too) - watery eyes, rivers of snot coming out of her nose. She keeps looking at me like "What the hell is going on here? and if you wipe my face one more time I am going to open up a can of whoop ass!"

Anyway I hope some other November mommas post updates and pics and that everyone is doing well!
