Our little COWGIRL!





We have been blessed with several rounds of clothing from my best friend Dani Lee. As I was separating the clothes into boxes to put away until we need them, Mili decided to "help" Mommy. The pictures above are the results of Mili "helping" Mommy. She says, "Mommy, Mimi help?" as she takes out these boots to put on.

She is too cute in her pull-up and boots. We had a little crying moment when bedtime came. She wanted to keep them on. We finally convinced her that it would not be too comfy to wear those to bed and told her she could wear them as soon as she woke up tomorrow morning.

Mili is doing remarkable with going to the potty recently (between her trips and my trips to the restroom, we could camp out there all day). We are using those stickers like crazy (see previous post).

For those of you that don't know, Mili has a texture problem when it comes to food. Everything has to be cut up in bite size pieces and if it has any density to it she will not eat it. Tonight she ate some chocolate covered raisins (cut up very tiny). She moved them around in her mouth and then says, "yum, good". We are hoping this is going to be a stepping stone to the next level of food for her. We are so frustrated trying to find things that she will eat (we have tried every character cookie or cracker but still no dry or hard foods are going in her mouth). If she ever gags on it then she will remember it forever and never wants it back in her mouth again. Even though she has this texture issue she eats very health so I should not complain. She eats spinach, green beans, broccoli, baked potatoes, fruit, and yogurt to name a few. Some parents of toddlers would love for them to eat any one of those things.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures as much as we did her wearing those cute boots around. Don't you just want to pinch those legs (I do, but not hard...smile). They won't have baby fat on them forever so I must while, I can.

Love to ALL!!

Maburn used to wear cowboy boots and shorts, so Mili is definitely related to him...pretty sure I wore cowgirl boots too. In fact, I think my Mom gave me those old things. They're not fit for a child to wear, but they were so cute I just couldn't throw them away!

Ryan also has a serious texture issue, and yes, I would love that he eat all the healthy food Mili still eats, so you are lucky in that aspect. Good to hear about your doctor visit. 2nd child seems too come quicker. At least Jacob did for me, he was a week early and the labour was less than half the time, everyone is different so be prepared for anything!
I am glad to hear you all seem to be doing well, lots of love to you all.
