Rachel is doing well again. And to answer your question: Even though she is "teething" often, none of her teeth have popped out yet. This is just fine because she doesn't need them anyway. She's still on a diet of formula, with the very rare experiment of other food here and there. I am still hesitant about giving her solids because her stools can quickly become hard with the extra bulk. (even oatmeal with prunes does this) And besides, she doesn't seem very interested in solids to begin with, so it just ends up being extra work for me on top of the bottle feeds. A few days ago I tried peaches and got a funny face. Today, I tried giving her some carrots that I cooked up myself. And she wouldn't stop eating them!! So cute. My mom tells me that as a baby, I loved carrots so much that I would eat whole jar-fulls of them, cold.
Otherwise, we are laying low this week. I have a head cold that I am trying to shake these days. Something I picked up from the kids. These summer colds sure like to stick around, don't they? O well, it is just a cold and it will pass.
