I am so sorry I haven't posted for a while. My laptop had problems not to long ago and had to be reformatted, but never quite fully recovered. It kept getting slower and slower, taking as much as 5-10 minutes to load Internet Explorer. So I took it back to V-Mobile (the place that I bought it from) and since it is still under warranty until the end of the year, they are going to fix it. I will probably be getting new ram, new hard drive, new CD drive, new keyboard, the list goes on. Basically they are using the same case and just giving me all new insides. Yay! Maybe it will last another few years for me.
But with having a slowed down computer, I just wasn't able to be on the internet all that much. Our other computer is in the the office...aka "Man Land" which is not baby proof at all. The good news is, until my computer gets fixed, I have this loaner computer to use! Yay!
Nora is back on schedule again. She wakes up at 6:30am every morning and I have been putting her to bed between 8 and 8:30pm. She has been taking a morning nap between 9:30am and 11am. I am still working on trying to tighten that schedule up a bit. I would love it if she went to take her nap right at 10am. Then, she is often taking another nap at about 3pm. Sometimes she will sleep for 2-3 hours in the morning and then be fine the rest of the day.
She is still doing her biting thing. Usually when she is hungry is when she is the worst. I was just trying to get her changed out of her clothes and into new clothes and a diaper; She knew that her bottle was ready, so she turned over and bit my foot! Ouch! Luckily she bit the pad and not the arch of my foot, otherwise she might have drawn blood.
When puppies bite, you can shove your hand further into their mouth to make it really uncomfortable to continue to bite down. I have sort of adopted this policy with Nora. When she bites me, I mooosh her face harder towards me. She really doesn't like this and has slowed her biting down.
Her favorite food right now is Organic Oranges. I am really trying hard to give her only organic foods. I am trying to change the way I eat and live and I figure that now is a great time to eliminate toxins from her diet too! Hopefully if I can keep affording to feed her organically, she won't face a lot of the problems that "conventionally" fed children often do. She also likes the organic Sesame Street cheese crackers and the Organic Letter of the day cookies. She loves string cheese and bread, oh and she really likes lunch meat. I am going to have her try Tofurkey lunch meat and she loves the Boca brand Chik'in patties.
I am trying to go vegan, but so far am having more luck going vegetarian. I ate meat last night because my friends at the Ranch made hamburgers from their ranch-raised beef. I figure a little meat once a week won't hurt as much as meat several times a day each day was hurting me, and I know how they raised and slaughtered their meat so I don't have a problem there. Just like I don't mind drinking their raw goats milk. Yum.
I must admit I still drink some of Nora's organic milk occasionally. I have a serious milk addiction. I am trying to break it, and I am doing much better. But it can be hard at times.
Well, I hope everyone is doing great! More later!
