I have been on vacation to the land of the zia... I am still here and it looks like my cold may have taken a turn for the green, but I haven't forgotten you my dear and sweet Internets... I am just too busy visiting the Rio Grande Zoo, eating copious amounts of green chili and pulling cactus spines out of my butt.
and weaning the Pearly girl. Sigh. I haven't mentioned it because it breaks my heart, she started out a champion nurser and I just knew we would reach my goal of nursing for the whole first year of her life. She is a biter. It started at two month of age and it's getting worse. If she actually had any teeth she would already have lopped off my nipples. Did I mention that it hurts?
Handily, the sudaphed I am taking in an attempt to not drown on my own snot is drying up my milk-supply and I think the baby, she don't care for the flavor of the "chili verde."
Two weeks ago we finally sweet-talked her into drinking from a bottle, and now if we can just find a way to keep her from ripping off the tops of the silicone nipples from the bottles with her gums we'll be in business. Huh, maybe she'll just be an early sippy-cupper.
We are all having a wonderful time and "wish you were here" etc....
