LeAnne's 1st doll

Nataly, my oldest niece gave LeAnne her first Cabbage Patch Kid and for whatever reason I decied Friday was a good day to give it to her. The ironic thing is about little Cora Sue is that her birthday is October 11th too and Nataly gave the doll to me Oct 6th at my baby shower. Pretty neat huh! LeAnne was much more interested in the packaging and all the accessories that lil Cora came with. She has showed some interest in her, especially the little bit of hair on top of her head. hee hee! While opening the box I caught a whiff of the unique smell a Cabbage Patch Kid has and it brought back lots of happy memories I had with my CPK's.
In other news, LeAnne is starting to stand on her own for as long as 15 seconds so from what I hear walking is just around the corner. She's holding her own bottle most of the time. We are experimenting with different table foods. So far she likes green beans, Graham Crackers, French fries, Cherrios, and mashed potatoes. She is getting better with her sippy cup and this week she learned how to knock down block towers that sister built. We are so blessed to have 2 very precious daughters!!

I just read a comment you made on Matthew Turner's blog about Elias sleeping and your daughter not. I just went through that battle, but didn't do anything until my son was 15 months old. It was horrible, but now he goes down and sleeps all night plus a two hour nap in the afternoons.

I know you don't know me, but I can so sympathize with you. My doctor had us take a little different approach with my son sleeping and I'd be happy to share with you if you want. If you don't, that's ok, but I didn't have to "cry it out" with my son and it made a world of difference for him (and me). Anyway, if you want to be invited to my blog, email me at It's private - I'm not a crazy person, just sympathetic to the not sleeping issues.
