My son, Kaeden is a new karate champion! Ok, well he has his white belt and he did participate in his very first tournament and even though I was afraid that he would be afraid, he was eager to participate and came in second place. I am so proud. He has also lost his two front teeth and I can’t help but think his smile is adorable.
Meridian is a growing nicugrad! She had an appointment with the NICU follow up clinic and she is pretty much right on time for her adjusted age. They gave me some things to work on for her development and she is a whopping 11 lbs and 15 oz!!
My soul mate sisters/friends came for a visit and we all got to catch up and I got out of the house for a bit.
We went back home to Michigan to spend Thanksgiving with my husband’s family and had a great time. I always love that time of year for the gathering of family and friends.
In breastfeeding news, I have five months in but while in Michigan, I pumped a lot and my daughter started really enjoying the bottle (over the nipple) so we are in a new area and trying to figure that out.
Over the Thanksgiving weekend, I saw Hunger Games: Mockingjay pt 2 and Creed. Hunger Games was a good wrap up to the series, although a bit too long and Creed was an awesome opening to a new Rocky franchise.
In Babywearing news, I have a new Mei Tai carrier from CatBirdBaby that I am excited about but haven’t really started using. I have started using my Maya Wrap Ring sling with the help of my visiting friend/sister/fellow natural brown momma.
On the baby wearing product list – I now have 1 lalubu soothe shirt, 2 happy wraps, 1 boba wrap, 1 maya wrap ring sling, 1 tula carrier and 1 mei tai carrier. If I get another one, I may have to smuggle it in the house so my husband won’t see.
I have halloween, thanksgiving and Christmas tree decoration pictures.
I am considering going back to school to get a masters degree in communications.
My family watched and loved The Wiz Live! We also love the movie the Wiz so I was a little afraid, but the cast did a wonderful job. My son is still wondering where was Toto though.
My husband and I went to see Chi-Raq yesterday and he hated it and I am perplexed, so no review of that as of yet.
That just about brings us up to date!
What have you been up to?
