We are sick today! Actually, I'm feeling a lot better, and I think Grace is also, but yesterday and last night were pretty rough. Grace has her first cold, and I think she is utterly confused and dismayed, not to mention slobbery. You see, her second tooth has just sprouted in her mouth, and she is most likely in pain from that too. She took forever getting to sleep, and when she did, she couldn't stay asleep for very long. And when baby doesn't sleep, no one sleeps! But even through all of this, she is still in cheerful spirits. I snapped this picture this morning after washing all the snot off her face, and it took no time at all convincing her to show me her pearly whites!
She has also been learning how to eat solid foods, and she is doing well! At first, she was really excited to get that spoon in her mouth, but she had no idea what to do with the food. She grabs the spoon with her fist and shoves it in her mouth, which she learned by watching us eat, but then she would roll the food around in her mouth and give us this confused look. Now she is mastering the art of swallowing and gets the majority of her meal inside rather than out!
Last night this Svensk Flicka (Swedish girl) tried sweet potatoes and seemed to really enjoy it!
