A Rainbow!! July 21, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — lovepaintingrainbows @ 11:08 pm

Today’s rainbow is an obvious one. Mathias has FINALLY taken his bottle!! He is nine months old and still mostly breast-fed. Which he very much enjoys. However, he is growing a lot and mama just ain’t cutting it, and I’m not enjoying getting up twice a night again. I know, some of you have been getting up in the night for since the beginning… but I have been spoiled with glorious sleep that I consider a necessity and so this has been a tragedy for my emotional well-being. (maybe that’s a little exaggerated… not much though)

Anyway, he is a typical boy and prefers the breast over the alternatives. I have been trying to get him to take goat milk, goat milk yogurt, fruit… anything! He refuses. But, today I had a lovely friend tell me that she put molasses in her baby’s goat milk and that helped. So, I tried it… and it worked!! Hallelujah! Thank you, God, for that rainbow in my day.

Also, I am starting to discover more ways to personalize my blog’s appearance. And being an eclectic artist, be prepared to witness a few changes every once in awhile. Hope you don’t mind change. šŸ™‚

Hope you find a beautiful rainbow in your day today! Please share what yours is if you would like!

Love, Alisha

*Little Rainbow of the Day: Mathias rolling his tongue every two minutes. Probably the cutest thing I’ve ever experienced.

I added a picture of Mathias just because I love his face. A surprise rainbow in Ben and I's lives.

    You are already so good at this!! Our blogs match now, but that might not last long since you said you like the change šŸ™‚ I didn’t realize Mathias was a “surprise rainbow”. Adelynn was a “surprise latte” šŸ™‚ I promise not to write on every single post, but I’m excited for you.

  3. OOO! You have a blog now! I have one that I started a long time ago but haven’t really been using… maybe I will have more exciting stuff to post now that life is about to get even more exciting :). I love the part about the “surprise rainbow.” Ours in a a surprise too… seems like it’s catching :).
