And we're back.

Feeling better on both ends, phew! Death warmed over this household for a while there, but we are back in action now! Soooo much has been happening, it's like a circus around here.


Turned 5 months old... but wasn't feeling so hot on her big day.

Rolls belly to back and back to belly... all in a day's work!

Is eating 2 solids meals a day. Oatmeal at lunch and peas at dinner. YUM!

Sits in her high chair to eat at home and at the table at school. She's officially a big girl!

Her 2 teeth are absolutely precious and she likes to chew on our fingers with them. It feels funny, but I'm so proud of her toofers.

Has a new Fisher Price Jumperoo. Much better than the doorway jumper and easier to get in/out of. She's a hoot when she gets going with all the bouncing!

Is going on her first campout tomorrow. I'm stressed, nervous and not looking forward to it. But if all goes well, it'll be nice to know we can go camping this summer.

Is a flirt at school, with girls, boys, men and women. It makes no difference. She'll lure you in and make eye contact and then once she gets your attention, she locks you in by repeatedly smiling. She *almost* successfully avoided naptime this morning by doing so, but unfortunately for her, her mother was the one putting her down. No budging there!

Took a brief cloth-diapering hiatus during all the illnesses in the K-Tell household, but is back in action now!

Is experimenting with a sippy cup in the coming days. Mommy gets cotton mouth watching her eat oatmeal with nothing to wash it down. Any recommendations on sippy cups? Do the Dr. Brown's ones do anything special? They need to have 2 handles.

Tries to blow raspberries, now that she knows the "b" sound. I fear she may blow a gasket one of these days, as she gets awfully tight-lipped and can't quite figure out how to get the air out.


Lost 7 pounds on the "Can't Eat, Can't Breathe, Can't Swallow" diet. So far, it's still gone!

Am unofficially no longer seeing Dr. S for anything. We'll all see Lilly's doctor from now on.

Was awake in bed from 10pm-3am last night, until finally giving in and taking 2 Benadryl, which worked fantastically until Lilly woke up at 5am, right smack in the middle of my coma. Love it!

Am 100% delighted today is Friday and the month of May is over, for all intents and purposes. I am no longer a single parent!!!


Did not leave us after all. We love him:)

I'm glad things are back to "normal" in the K-Tell household. Take lots of pictures on the camping trip

What an update! Glad you are all feeling better and you aren't a single mommy after all! :)

I was getting worried there and was literally planning to call you tomorrow to make sure you were still holding up.

Meanwhile, I nominated you for an award on my blog!
