Parenting Goals

November 30, 2010 at 9:50 AM Leave a comment

My first parenting goal was to breastfeed my daughter for the first six months. Today, she is officially six months old. I am so proud of both of us. Together we reached this goal. In public, in private, covered, uncovered, through smiles, through tears, anytime day or night, our little team has done what we set out to do. The result: a cheerful, healthy, active 15lb baby.

I am so thankful for a supportive family and especially a supportive husband. We have been very blessed.

But the fun is only just beginning! Oh there is lots of nursing ahead of us. Our intention from the beginning was to let her decide when she wishes to stop nursing and I daresay that won’t happen anytime soon — if her big happy grin as she latches on is any indication.

But now our adventures with food begins. So far, runny rice cereal hasn’t been much of a hit. But steamed butternut squash, now that is some gooooood eatin’!

We are off today to get some yummy fruits and vegetables for her to try: sweet potato, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, peas, peaches, berries, apples, bananas, melons. Oh what fun we will have, experimenting with delightful new flavors and textures!

A new goal is set: develop in our daughter a love for all fruits and veggies. We are so excited to try them all!
