Thankful on this Thursday

I have never participated in "Thankful Thursday" before, but since I'm feeling extra thankful today, I'd thought I'd do it!

On this gloomy, rainy/snowy March Thursday, I am thankful that we went through with the surgery for Claire's cleft palate


& she is able to start eating solid food.

You can't tell from this picture, but she HATED rice cereal.

So far, we've eaten rice cereal {hates} pears {loves} & avocado {loves}.

Avocado Mustache

Up next, naners & sweet potato! 

Thank God for the cleft palate team at Primary Children's Hospital, for fixing my sweet baby.

Happy Thursday!

What are YOU thankful for today??

p.s. watch for a post in the next couple of days. I have been working on something exciting & different that I think you guys are going to LOVE. I hope. :)

  6. Love that she is able to start solids! I just started my little one on them and she so far loves carrots and hates hates hates peaches. :) It is so fun! I love seeing pictures of your smiling little girl, you and your family sure have been through the ringer the last couple of weeks and it is nice to see the benefits that came from that.

  7. she is adorable. c hated cereal as well. I would generally mix his fruit with it so he would get his grain and that worked wonders.

  8. How cute! Glad she was able to start solids! Averly hated cereal at first, but after a few tries, she ended up loving it! I can't wait to see what you have coming up! Thanks for your sweet comment! :)

  9. Aww, she looks SO happy! Grace doesn't like rice cereal either, but mixing fruit helps and we found that she LOVES oatmeal. They even make banana flavored which is a hit!

  11. LOVE the pictures! She looks like an advertisement for baby cute!
