31-33 Weeks

Miss Caroline is now 33 weeks old! She is so close to crawling..she can go from a sitting position to up on all fours and she rocks back and forth. She's also starting to hold her bottle now but only when she's laying down. There have been lots of "mmm"s and "ma"s lately..I'm waiting for the full "mama" because it seems like that's going to be her first word. She just figured out how to move in her walker and she loves it.

We're headed to the pediatrician's office an about an hour because I think she has another ear infection. We are all finally over our colds (knock on wood) and I hope we're not exposed to a bunch of stuff while we're at the pedi's office.

Now for the pictures.

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. We've been pretty busy..and sick!

We noticed last week that Caroline's eyes were really crusty when she woke up from sleeping. We brushed it off as allergies or a cold. She woke a two mornings later and her eyes were crusted shut! Poor thing. We had to wipe them with a damp wash cloth so she could open them. We took her to the pediatrician and found out she had pink eye in both eyes.

We spent the weekend in Pearsall for Mario's 10 year high school reunion. While we were there I started getting a sore throat and Caroline started coughing. I thought maybe we were allergic to something in the air down there but we both started feeling much worse after we got back home. I went to the doctor's office to make sure it wasn't H1N1 and they tested me for strep. The test came back negative and the doctor said it was just a cold. Caroline still has a runny nose and a cough and I still don't feel good. Now Mario is starting to feel sick too. Ugh.

We ended up having to reschedule our family pictures for next weekend when we'll hopefully be feeling much better.

I hope we all feel better soon and I can get back to regular blogging.

Caroline had a fun Halloween yesterday. We spent the day in San Antonio. She got to visit her friend Kadence (we didn't take any pictures) then spent the rest of the night at her cousin's house visiting with Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and Grandparents. We even went trick or treating at a few houses.

7 Months!

Miss Caroline turned 7 months old yesterday. This month flew by! She is so much fun these days. She's very close to being mobile. She finally rolled from her back to her belly on Friday. She's been really trying to crawl for about a week and I'm sure it won't be long. We need to do some baby proofing.

She's still eating about five 6 ounce bottles every day and three meals of solids. She loves eating purees again and we've started some finger foods. We're working on teaching her to hold her bottles and use a sippy cup.

We're looking forward to this month with Miss Caroline. We have family pictures scheduled..I hope she'll smile for the camera. She's become pretty shy around strangers. She has two grandparent's birthdays to celebrate. We also have Thanksgiving at our house with both sides of the family. It should be another fun month!
