Sad News.

My camera died today.  The lens won't pop out and it just gives me an error message on the screen.  So, this will mostly be a pictureless blog until I am able to acquire a new one.  Any pictures I do manage to post will be shoddy quality, taken with my camera phone.  :(  Heres hoping I get a new one soon.

Miss Mercy had spaghetti for dinner tonight!  She's had it once or twice before, but I always would hand her a noodle at a time.  This time I made her a little plate, set her up in her bumbo and let her have it.

Sewin' up a storm!

I have a small group of ladies that I met online, that must love me.  I sure do love them back.  I haven't met most of them, we've mainly only chatted online or occasionally texted.  Despite only knowing eachother electronically, I'm relatively convinced we'd all confess our love of eachother to at least a small degree.  A few weeks ago I recieved physical evidence of that love.

Several of them got together and formed a mail chain, and sent a card and gift card all across the country so they could all pitch in and buy me a sewing machine so I could sew all those wraps I want to sell, and make cloth diapers, and inserts, and all sorts of other fun stuff.  It took them two months, and not once did I have the slightest clue, it was quite the surprise.

They are pretty awesome ladies, and I am having a ton of fun with it. So far I have made about 10 pairs of baby leg warmers (Mercy is modeling her gray pair in that top photo),  5 cloth diaper inserts, finished the edges of 1 wrap, 1 pouch sling, and 2 pairs of pants.  It would have been 2 pouch slings and 1 pair of pants, but I messed up trying to make the 2nd sling, so I turned the scraps into a pair of pants!

A few pictures....

After our last salad fiasco, I decided from now on I'd make Mercedes her own salads to eat from so she wouldn't keep trying to thieve mine.  A few days ago Miss Mercy and I went out to lunch with my dad.  We went to a buffet, and my favorite part is by far the salad bar.  Having learned my lesson I made Mercy her own salad with all sorts of good stuff on it like cucumbers, broccoli, cauliflower, peas, carrots, spinach, and croutons.  She thoroughly enjoyed it.  I think her favorite parts were the dinner roll I gave her and the cucumbers.

At one point she got a little overwhelmed with all the food there was to eat, and her poor little hands just weren't enough to handle it all.  She had a slice of cucumber in one fist, a piece of roll in the other, and then she saw the rest of her roll on the table in front of her and she just face-planted to grab it with her mouth.

One of our last nights in Oregon I put in a request for pork and broccoli, and my momma made it for us.  We fixed Mercedes her own bowl, put a blanket down and let her go to town.  Her favorite part of that was the broccoli, but the rice was especially fun to play with, and the pork was good for flinging out of the bowl. Good to eat, fun to play with.  I'm going to have to deem pork and broccoli a success.

One last picture, my little ham face, enjoying some of my sandwich.

Who are you to judge me?

My sisters and I took a little road trip early the other morning.  We had to take my big sister to the airport, which is a two hour drive away.  We left around 3:30 and stopped at a McDonalds around 4:30 for breakfast.  It was a pretty hilarious stop.

McD: "I can take your order whenever youre ready"
Me: "Can we get a number 4 with an orange juice, and a small latte?"
McD: "Any flavoring?"
Me: "No thank you"
McD: "Non fat or low fat?"
Me: (asking my sister) "Low fat"
Me: (to my sister) "What about full fat? What if you wanted ALL the fat in your latte!?" *insert car-full of giggling girls here*
McD: "Anything else?"
Me: "A number 4 with an orange juice and a hot chocolate"
McD: "Anything else?"
Me: "A number 5, and can I get that with a large coke?"
McD: "uh......suuuure"
The McD guy was JUDGING me for wanting a coke in the wee hours of the morning! I can't even describe the tone of his voice but it was definitely one of  "WTH is wrong with you that you would want a coke at this hour of the morning?!" We decided that he probably walked over the coke machine and tested it, to see if it worked that early.  Maybe it was because it was because we were all operating on roughly 2 hours of sleep, but we found this HILARIOUS.  We pretty much laughed at it the rest of the drive.  Another conversation went like this...

Jess: "At least I wasn't judged by the Mcdonalds guy."
Me: "At least I don't care if I was judged by the Mcdonalds guy.  He's working the overnight shift at a Mcdonalds off the highway, who is he to judge me?! I certainly don't care that he did.  I definitely won't be blogging about it."

Other fun parts of the trip include Minna scaring the crap out of me by making me think a truck was about to merge into us and run us off the road, and my inability to tell my little sister to F*** off resulting in me telling her to "Fffffffffffff......."

I'm pretty sure there was more fun had, but the sleep deprivation has resulted in memory loss.  But, I am pretty sure I've got the two best sisters in the world.

For my cloth diapering mommas....

There is a giveaway over at My Boho Baby is Hippie Chic, for a wet bag from The Nappy Shoppe, go check it out and enter!

Expanding our palate

In roughly the past two weeks Mercedes has had: quesadilla, chicken enchilada, shredded beef burrito, spanish rice (we like mexican), sweet and fiery chicken, mar far chicken, pork fried rice, chow mein (and chinese), chicken adobo (filipino), and just last night some good ol' barbequed country ribs.

There are multiple things I hope to accomplish with Baby-led solids.  The most important is my desire for her to have a wide range of foods she likes.  I want her to enjoy all sorts of foods and not be afraid to try new things. I don't to raise a picky eater or a kid who you to bribe, threaten, and cajole into taking a bite of something they haven't had before.

Another thing I hope to accomplish, which I guess is just an offshoot of that, is I want her to prefer foods that are good for her, or atleast foods that aren't bad for her.  I want her to love her fruits and veggies, which I think I've already accomplished to some extent.  I've heard stories about babies turning their noise up and clamping their mouth shut when it came to pureed green beans or pees, but Mercy loves grabbing a string bean to munch on or a handful of pees.  I don't want her to grow up and be one of those kids who screams for McDonalds or doesn't want to eat her dinner because she only wants twinkies and candy, or a child who won't drink milk or water because she only wants pop or juice.

I know I won't be able to keep all of that away from her, she has already successfully thieved a sour punch straw (or skittle or gobstopper, we're still not sure), some Mickey d's fries, and a bite of cookie (that one she snatched right out of my hand!). But, I can hope to cultivate in her a preferance and appreciation for better tasting and better for her food.

The gDiaper formerly known as Vanilla

gDiapers seems to have a surplus of orange and vanilla gPants so they are the cheapest to buy, but also the least "cute" of their selection.  But, I'm cheap and decided to buy them anyways and just embellish them on my own and make them cute.  The first couple pairs I got I did the pirate iron ons

The vanilla pants are also good for dying.  I picked up a pack of dylon dye a few weeks ago and finally got around to dying them tonight.  If I were a good blogger, I would have taken pictures of the dying process and made a "how to", and I thought about taking picture.  I thought "I need to remember to take pictures of the process so I can make a blog about it" and then I forgot.  It wasn't complicated though.  I will take pictures the next time I do it.

I dyed them purple, and I'm pretty pleased with the way they came out.  I have some cute pink skull iron-ons that I'm thinking of adding to them.  For now though she is rockin her plain purple g's.

Miss Mercy is my carnivore girl.  She got steak the other night.  Shes had little pieces of meat before but usually only a little bit of ground beef or a piece of chicken.  Her little teeth started popping through last month, and she got an incisor first.  When she smiles you can see it all pointy and it earned her the term of endearment of Fang from Auntie Minna.
Anyways, we went to Outback one night and since she had her fangs and her bottom teeth coming through I gave her a strip of steak.  She LOVED it.  She went crazy for it.  It was the most fun I've had feeding her ever.  Next time, I'm totally listening to my mom sooner. I think we'll make steak the first food for baby #2 when we have it.

 When I took the piece she had away to give her a fresh piece, she made me pry it from her fist and then yelled at me.  This girl loves her meat.  I wouldn't be entirely surprised if next time she growls and bares her fangs at me.
She definitely inherited our love for food.  After I was done eating I took her out of the highchair and put her in my lap.  Next thing I know she lunged for my plate and grabbed my baked potato skin off the plate and was trying to cram it into her mouth. It was pretty darn funny.  I love eating out with this girl, it is always an adventure.

Little Miss Independant

One of the points of baby led weaning is self-feeding.  This is pretty much all Mercedes has known.  She wasn't spoon fed, and for the most part all I did was put food in her hands and let her take it from there aside from in the beginning when I would put something in her mouth so she realized it was food and edible. 

While in Hawaii she tried a few things that I wanted to feed her instead of letting her do it because it would be messy. When attempting this we found out something rather interesting.  She doesn't like being fed.  She wants to do it herself.  Anytime Minna or I would try to put something in her mouth (yogurt melt, puff, piece of fruit) she would stick her tongue out. Kinda like this...

only with her mouth closed, so we couldn't put said food in her mouth.  More like she was saying "NYEAH" in her head.

Or, she would incessantly reach out her hands to try and grab the food or spoon and do it herself.  "I got this mom, I do it myself."

My girl has got such attitude.

Questions about Baby-led Solids (baby-led weaning)

While chatting online with other moms I found there were a lot of questions about giving baby table and finger foods and baby-led solids.  I figured since this is a blog about starting baby on solids I should go ahead and try and answer some of those questions here.  Sort of a FAQ section.  So here are some of the most common questions about introducing your baby to foods other than purees.

*Disclaimer: I'm not a professional anything, just a mom sharing her experiences and knowledge from her own research, hoping to help other moms.  I am not a pediatrician or a nutritionist, this is just what has worked for us and what I've discovered talking to other moms.

Q: When should I start giving my baby solids?
A: The general rules of when to start solids are
  • No earlier than 6 months- to ensure that baby no longer has an open gut
  • When baby can sit unassisted
  • When baby has the motor skills to pick up and move food to her mouth/has developed the pincer grasp 
  • When baby has lost the tongue-thrust reflex
         Baby does not have to have teeth before you offer solids, some of the solids may even help to alleviate teething pain.We started offering at 6 months, but she didn't really start taking to them until 7 months.  There is no harm in starting to late, but it can be dangerous to start too early, even with purees and rice cereal.  (Not that I think you should give your baby rice cereal, that stuff is gross!)  The minimum a baby should be given anything but formula or breastmilk is 6 months.

Q: What foods should I offer my baby?
A: A good first food for baby is Avocado- lots of healthy fat and nurtrients.  Good "finger foods" are the Gerber Puffs, Yogurt Melts, Mum Mums, and teething biscuits.  Most fruits are good to cut up and give to baby. Mercy's favorite is peaches.  As they get older you can offer a wider variety.  At 8.5 months Mercy mostly gets what I'm eating.  I just try to stay away from "junk food"- no fast food, nothing high in sodium or sugar or bad fat, and I avoid things that have high acidity like citrus fruits or large quanties of tomatoes or sauce.  And always stay away from hgih allergy foods like peanuts, shellfish, strawberries, or any allergies that run in your family. 

Q: How should I prepare the food to give to baby?
I usually either give them in slices, (like cucumber, or apple slices) sticks (carrots) or stalks (like broccoli).  Shapes that are easy for them to hold on their own and eat.    When she gets some of my meat like chicken or steak, I make sure it is a big enough chunk for her to hold in her hand so she doesn't try to cram the whole piece in at once.  I do not usually cook any fruits or veggies before I give them to her.  I just rinse, cut, and call it good. (I plan on making an entry in the future demonstrating how I cut and prepare most fruits for Mercy, with pictures so its easier to understand.)

Q: Do you give the baby food right off your plate, salted and seasoned too?
A:Salt-no. Spicy- no. Seasoned- yes.  When I know I will be sharing food with Mercedes I do not put salt and pepper on it (or I only put a little).  Regular cooking seasoning though I don't worry about.  Babies like flavor too! 

Q: I'm worried about choking, what do I do?
A: It is important to remember that there is a difference between choking and gagging.  Gagging is normal and is just part of the learning process.  Baby is use to a liquid diet from either breastmilk or formula, gagging teaches baby how to move food around her mouth and what size pieces she can handle and what she can't.  Never leave your baby alone with food so that in case of an emergency and your baby does choke you can help.


I think those are the basic questions,  If I've missed any, or you have any  I haven't answered, leave a comment and I will do my best to answer for you.  Good luck!

The other day my mom was telling me about how when we were little, my sisters and I would play a game to sneak drinks off her soda.  One of us would go out and distract the adults with a song or dance or something along those lines, while the other would steal a drink.  Then, the other would go out and sing or dance while the first stole a drink.  Apparently this is an inborn genetic trait, because my girl and her cousin have already got it down. was having a chicken caesar salad for dinner the other night and Minna was having some split pea soup.  Sami being the piglet she is kept trying to go after Minnas dinner.  Baby+hot bowl of soup=not good.  So, I was trying to occupy her and keep her from mauling Minna.  We were all sitting on the bed, Sami next to me, Mercy sitting in front of me.  I had given the kids some bread and lettuce to munch on, but Mercy kept half heartedly trying to grab from my plate, and Sami kept trying to crawl for Minna and her soup.  At one point time I got distracted by the tv and then Sami made a run for Minna again, I grabbed her, pulled her back, look back forward, and Mercy had leaned forward and grabbed two handfuls of my salad and was shoving them in her mouth!

These kids are too smart for my own good. Just look at them! Plotting against me.

And a special shoutout to Miss Jenfly for motivating me to get off my butt and write at least 1 of these entries I've had floating in my head for the past couple days!

Table food

Well, Mercy's solids intake has greatly increased since we arrived in Hawaii.  She is also mostly getting food from my own plate instead of me cutting up some fruit for her.  The other night we had chef salad for dinner. My sister and I were sitting on the bed and would give the babies a piece of broccoli, or cauliflower, lettuce, chicken, whatever.  They would munch on it a little bit, and then charge at us and try to grab more food off our plate!  It didn't matter that their food was from our plates to begin with, they wanted to take it for themselves.  They were getting pretty pushy.  It was amusing.  I decided next time I'm just going to make them up their own plate of salad, especially since everything on it was baby appropriate. I also let her munch on some of my meatloaf and a couple of the boiled potato pieces while I was making potato salad.  She enjoyed it quite a bit.
And, much to my relief, her nursing hasn't seemed to decrease much.  We mostly nurse when we are laying down for a nap though, or when I am *trying* to lay her down for a nap.  I attribute my supply staying up to the fact that we cosleep and she eats throughout the night.  Yay cosleeping!

Sami loves to give kisses.  Kisses all over mommy, kisses all over auntie, and today, kisses all over Mercy.  Mercy was pretty tolerant the first five or so minutes of Sami grabbing her head and pulling it towards her open mouth.  At one point Sami had hold of both of Mercy's ears and was using them as handles.  A good mom would have stopped it and freed her from her cousins grasp.  I stood back and laughed.  We kept trying and trying to get a picture of it but they'd stop as soon as we got the camera out.

We finally gave up and continued our shopping.  Then after checkout as we were waiting for our food from the Costco concessions Sami felt lovey again.  So she lunged at Mercy and was pulling her head in all ready to give it the proper loving, Mercy started screeching.  Once again, instead of  being a good mom and separating them, I grabbed my camera.  So if you happened to be Costco today, and heard two infants screeching and hollering, I apologize.  But this picture was totally worth it.

Precious Cargo

So me and my sis and the babies went to Costco today.  We decided to get a Costco Pizza to bring home for dinner since its good, and I've never had it before.  We are driving home, babies strapped into their carseat, groceries and pizza loaded into the trunk.  She got a text and was texting back then says to herself  "Don't text while driving Minna."

Me: "Yeah, there is precious cargo in the car."
Her: "yeah."
Me: "I really want to try that pizza."

Then we almost swerve off the road because we're laughing so hard.  It appears texting may have been the safer choice.

Mistress Mercy and I are in Hawaii!  We left the 7th for a nice vacation to come visit my sister and her sweet little girl Sami.  I'm so excited to be here and finally meet my niece.

It is so much fun to watch them interact together.  They are always smilin and talking to each other, reaching for each other two.  Mercy thinks Sami makes a great tool for leverage.  She is always trying to put her hands on Sams head and push up to standing.  Sams a pretty good sport about it.   They like to whack one another and poke the other in the eye and pull on ears.  They love to listen to each other.  Sam will be cooing and babbling and Mercy will just start LAUGHING at her, or Mercy will be talking and Sam will turn and start giggling at her and talking it back, its hilarious.
Mercy is kind of a bully though.  I sat them down to eat some fruit the other morning.  I gave Sam a piece of cantaloupe and Mercy a slice of apple because shes teething.  Mercy sucked on her apple a little bit, then crawled over to Sam and stole the cantaloupe! I gave it back to Sam and got Mercy her own piece.  Sam wasn't much interested in the melon so I gave her a baby rice cake instead.  I finish heating up my own food, get back to the living room, and Mercy is sitting there, eating the rice cake!  She also likes to take toys from Sam, and tries to steal her bottle too.  Its cute, but at the same time makes me wonder about when shes older.  Am I going to be getting called in to the principals office because Mercy kept taking toys from the other kids or wouldn't share her crayons? 
Its also so great to be with my sister.  We have so much fun together.  I feel like all the time we're together we are joking and in hysterics.  We randomly break out into song.  Usually Disney songs.  Sophie the Giraffes new name is Nacho.  I was telling her about the teething toys Canned Pie and Sophie, she wanted to know what they were. I explained they were teething toys that squeak and are made out of natural rubber.  Except she heard Nacho Rubber and was wondering what the hell that is.  Four days later and I'm still laughing at that.
Although, for all the fun we have together I have reason to believe she is trying to kill me.  On more than one occasion in the 4 days Ive been here, as soon as I take a drink or a bite of food, she will say something funny and I start laughing and trying not to choke. It might be payback for me repeatedly referring to our babies as reptiles. The other day-
me: "Its so funny watching them crawl all over each other.  Kind of like snakes. In a snake pit."
her: "uh....."
me: "don't like that one?  okay.  how about like kittens?"
or tonight, at dinner.  Sami was eating a piece of bagel, and Minna was sharing how she will eat most of things fine, and then try shove the last bites in her mouth at once, opening her mouth really wide.  My response was "Kind of like a snake, dislocating its jaw to eat animals whole."
Maybe I deserve it.  Choking to death from laughter while eating would be an interesting way to go.

and in the world of baby-led weaning....

Mercy is still only getting food sporadically.  She likes to sit in her bumbo and eat while we eat.  Last night she sat down and had dinner with us.  She got a cheerio peach- a slice of peach rolled in crushed cheerios to make it easier to hold- it was the first time we tried that and she definitely liked it, and there was much less Momma Pick It Up.  She also dined on a few peas, a couple bits of biscuit, and a piece of lasagna noodle.  Quite the well balanced dinner.  It made quite a mess, but thats why Dad was on clean-up duty.

Not much else going on on the BLW front, I'm a bit preoccupied with our gDiapers and decorating them.....
I'm addicted.

My babys got a fluffy butt!

We are on day 2 of our adventures with gDiapers.  I'm loving it.  I didn't think I'd ever be this excited/thrilled about anything regarding diapers.

Heres what we got in our starter pack- 2 gPants, 1 extra liner and 10 flushie inserts.  It also came with a swish stick to use when you flush the inserts, but I live in crappy military housing with crappy plumbing- I'm not going to attempt to flush it.
Here is one of the gPants, all loaded up with a liner and an insert and ready for baby!  The flushie inserts are really great, you can use them all the time instead of cloth inserts and not have all the laundry, or use them when out and about so you don't have to carry around a soiled cloth insert.  Since this is what we got in our starter kit its mainly what I've been using, but today I tried using quickie no-sew cloth inserts that I learned how to make from another Mommas blog,   Borders Boho Baby.  She has a lot of awesome tutorials on there., the flushies are nice, but I also really like using the cloth inserts and I can't wait til my actual gCloth inserts get here.
I'm deeming our first 2 days a success.

How to wear a wrap...

It was brought to my attention that for all my babywearing talk, I have not included anything about how to tie a wrap!

Here are a few links to sites with good instructions on all the different holds you can do.

How to make a wrap

I made a wrap to send to my friend today, and I took pictures so I could teach all of you wonderful people out there on world wide web how to make one too.  My goal is to convert EVERYBODY to babywearing. 

First you need to go to the fabric store, or walmart if you are lucky and your walmart has fabric, and select 5 yards (or 6 if you need a longer wrap) of a stretchy cotton matterial.  The first wrap I made (the pretty lavender one) was 60% cotton, 40% polyester.  It worked nice, but got a little hot.  the stretch was good though.  The ones I make now I try to use cotton knits, usually cotton/jersey.  (Can be found under the "knits" sign in Joannes.  Whooda thunk to look there?) They don't get too hot and have a good stretch.  Plus they are really cute!  This is the fabric I got yesterday, isn't it gorgeous?!
First I fold the fabric in half, and then in half again to make it easier to work with.  (1.5 yards instead of 6)

Then, since my fabric was 60inches wide I folded it in thirds.  (I also could have just folded it in half and had two wider wraps instead of three skinnier wraps)

To make it easier to see where to cut I ironed the edges to make a more definite fold.  If I had just been cutting it in half I could have skipped this step since most fabric is already folded in half on the bolt with a nice crease.

From there I cut along the creases, giving me 3 strips of fabric 20in by 6yds.  3 wraps.  If I were cool and had a sewing machine I would finish the edges, but I'm not cool enough to own a sewing machine yet so they stay raw.

Chris chastized me for using his daughter for product testing.  I don't think she minded.

Good day.

Good day for me.  Good day for babywearing.  Good day for cloth diapering.
Well, the morning didn't start out great.  Had to take Miss Mercy in to get her shots, which is never pleasent, but she did great.  The rest of the day was pretty good.

I went out for a day on the town with a friend and her baby.  I brought two wraps with me, because I was assuming that she didn't really know about them and figured she might enjoy it and that just maybe I'd be able to convert her.  We got to Babies R Us and I asked her if she wanted to try, and then helped her tie it and load up the baby.  We walked around and did our shopping.  We were getting asked left and right about the wraps and where we got them (both made by me), how they worked, and being told how cute they were.  It was awesome.  Then when we went to the fabric store I found some ridiculously cute fabric and snatched it up to make some more wraps out of.  I'm in love.  My whole reason for getting more fabric was to make a wrap for a friend, but it might "get lost in the mail".  I dont know if I'll be able to give it up.  I'll post pics tomorrow when I *hope* to finally put up the "How to Make a Wrap" tutorial I've been promising.  At all our stops my friend wore her baby, and then asked me to make her a wrap, so she bought some fabric and I did.  Meet Jessica and Janiyla, proud new babywearing converts.'ve decided to start cloth diapering.  Well, kind of cloth diapering.  I am switching to gDiapers, which were introduced to me by several awesome ladies from Babycenter.  When I was at Babies R Us, the starter kit was on sale so I grabbed one.  We didnt get home til late, and with Mercy being cranky from her shots today it didn't seem like the ideal time to start, plus I want to give it all its glory and get proper pictures and give it its own entry, so we will be starting our adventure as gMum and gBaby tomorrow. I am very excited about it!

My kid is evil I tell ya

Just look at this face.....
