Baby Food

I am making baby food!

I have been reading the book Super Baby Food, it talks all about introducing new foods to your wee one and gives you a instructions on how to make your own baby food. I have only made three things squash, pears, and peaches. So far so good. Payton seems to like everything to this point.

Next up carrots!

Payton has a tooth!

A tooth has finally broke the surface! Payton's bottom front left tooth showed its face Sunday, November 2, 2008. Yeah and Uh-Oh at the same time. She loves chewing on fingers, which we may need to stop soon. :o) Fortunately, she hasn't bitten me while nursing...yet.

I also wanted to include this way cute picture of Payton, she has such an adorable smile in it.

I have never really been a Halloween person. Because of this, I went back and forth about whether or not I was going to dress Payton up in a Halloween costume. I figured Payton would just dress her in the Halloween shirt my mom and I found in the dollar racks at Target. I envisioned taking her to one of the pumpkin patches and taking a picture with a pumpkin and that was about it.

The Breastfeeding Support Group and the Las Madres Group that I go to were both having costume parades for the little kids. I thought that it sounded fun to see the babies all dressed up in costumes but just didn't want to go out and spend the money on a costume for Payton. But then my friend Jessica and I were talking on one of our walks and she mentioned that her mother had a bunch of baby Halloween costumes. I asked her if she thought her mother might let me borrow one for Payton to wear and she said of course. Boy was I suprised when I came over the Jessica's house to take a look at the costumes and found about twenty of them to choose from. Payton ended up being a pirate. I have to say I think she was the cutest pirate I have ever seen. I didn't end up making it to either of the costume parades but Dave and I did take her trick or treating to my parent's house, Dave's parents house and to my sister's kitchen in Willow Glen.
Take a look at the pictures we took of Payton at the Pumpkin Patch and then of her Trick or Treating! Enjoy.
