No I didn't quit blogging...

But it certainly did cross my mind. This is the hardest post to write. On February 9th my husband's most beloved father passed away from a massive heart attack. He was only 54. We flew out to Michigan the next morning and just returned Monday the 21st. I don't have the words to truly express my feelings. He was a great man, a loving husband, a wonderful dad and was just embarking on being the best grandfather. I tell Zelda every day how much he loved her and how he is watching over her. Heaven got a good one!

 I couldn't find a picture of just Jon's dad and the baby. This is Jon's dad, mom, his sisters and brother.

No, it's not Friday...

But I have a ton of backed up stuff to post about Zelda! I'm breaking the rules.

I successfully made my own baby food. First I made carrots, then a few days later I made some sweet potatoes. We skipped over the rice cereal since I breast feed and find no nutritional value in it. After about a week of her solid foods I did add oatmeal cereal to the mix. Mainly because she is still not sleeping through the night and I thought maybe she was waking up hungry and I wasn't producing enough for her. It's been two days since adding the oatmeal and it hasn't helped one bit. I bought some avocados on Sunday to make into baby food next!

The carrots

Waiting in her high chair for the goods!

Yummy! She loves her carrots!

Little grass dude

I got this little guy from my knit groups secret santa. I started growing his hair a few weeks ago, and boy does it grow fast! I had to give him a haircut!

Then a couple of days later I had to throw him out, cause anywhere there wasn't grass there was mold :(

Ahhh, Sunday.

So I am getting lazy. I'm not really lazy, just haven't had time to post - let alone clean my house! Well today is the first day in weeks Jon hasn't worked 14+ hours. In fact, he didn't work at all. It was pure bliss!

We drove around looking for a new place to live, Jon cooked a cod soup that he just threw together and it was surprisingly delicious. I'll admit, I was seriously worried. And well I still didn't do any cleaning. I need to get my act together because Jon's dad is coming this weekend for a couple of days!

As I was saying... I'm getting lazy. Below are all the ornaments I received in my handmade ornament swap. It was a ton of fun. And I love getting mail!

She has begun waking up several times a night after many months of sleeping through the night. She's been doing it for a whole week now and I again feel like a zombie. We've all had a very hard week.

Jon is still crunching. He was supposed to be done on Monday, but it's Friday and they are still crunching. :( I am really just hoping he has this weekend off.

On Tuesday Jon's Grandpa Glenn passed away. I have my fingers crossed that Jon won't have to work this weekend so that we can join a cousins family in driving up to Orlando to visit his Grandma.

Then on Wednesday our hedgehog, Spiney Norman, passed away. To say the least, this week has sucked.

BUT I do have some cute pictures!
Zelda loves to eat her feet, especially in the bath.

And here she is getting frustrated at the giraffe on her exersaucer for not going in her mouth!
