This Week in Mommyhood

This week was all about being thankful. I am so thankful to have everything I do. I have a beautiful and healthy daughter, a loving husband, a sweet dog, and the support and encouragement from a great group of friends and family. I am truly blessed.
It continually amazes me how much can change in a year. Last year, I was pregnant, and this year I have a 9.5 month old daughter. My whole world has been turned upside down and reconstructed in the last year. I can't believe I actually have a child and that said child will call me mama one day. It's so weird to think I am somebody's mother. Wow.
Cati fully enjoyed Thanksgiving. She got to spend a lot of time with everyone in the family, especially Alex. She sat with us at the table and munched on crackers and turkey. Did you catch that last part? She ate turkey! She is such an interesting child. She doesn't like the baby food turkey I made her but she loved the turkey pieces I gave her at the table. I think it has something to do with the grainy consistency of the baby food turkey.
The latest thing with Cati has been her licking her lips and her Popeye face. I don't know where she picks up on these things but they are hilarious. I can stop myself from laughing every time she does one of these things and because I laugh she keeps on doing them (talk about a perfect example of positive reinforcement).
Cati has also become a serious cruiser. She loves to do it and loves to cruise down the sofa, around my legs, on the media center; basically anywhere! It's all a fun  game to Cati. This makes complete sense considering how much better she's getting at standing unassisted, but it still shocks me to see how strong my baby is. There are instances when she's standing that you can see she wants to take a step but it's like there's cement on the bottom of her feet gluing her to the ground then her knees break and she falls into a crawl.
The only other thing to happen this week is that I haven't pumped. Not once, but I already told you all about that. For some reason, I don't think Cati's going to miss the fresh milk much.
