Guerra Family Updates!

Okey dokey, so I obviously failed at my goal of updating the blog a minimum of once a week. Part of my procrastination was because of several reasons, those being 1) my job search 2) planning Sybilla’s baptism & Michael’s birthday party and 3) motherhood can be quite consuming, resulting from sleep deprivation and temporary bouts of amnesia. This is supposed to be a family blog, and I chose to wait to post until after Michael posted something about his birthday party. And that of course, took some time since my husband is the king of procrastination! I finally got him to write it after I proclaimed what MY version of his blog entry would have been. Now that he has accomplished his task, on to our family updates!

We washed the devil out of Sybilla on June 14, 2008 at St. Austin's. The baptism was presided by Fr. Rick Walsh, who is the same priest that married us, so it was quite lovely to have him back again. (Funny side note… the shoes I wore with my outfit were the same shoes I was wearing the last time we saw him… my wedding day!) Sybilla did beautifully and was so enthralled by Fr. Rick and never cried one bit. She was absolutely adorable in the dress that I made her for the occasion and the bonnet that I bought to go with it.

In case you have not heard yet, I am, indeed, employed again at last! I am a little sad at having to go back to work full time, but I am very excited about my job and will be working as a Project Mgmt Coordinator for a market research firm. I will update you with more info as I learn more about my responsibilities and tasks!

And finally, Little S had her 4-month doctor’s appointment today. She weighed in at 15.84 pounds, or 7.2 kilos. She is in the 50th percentile on height, 90th percentile on weight, and 50th percentile for head circumference. Our darling daughter is quite the little monkey and has mastered many developmental skills, among them rolling over both ways, standing on her feet, and reacting to voices around her. She has even begun to respond to her name (or so we think… that really could be coincidence!). We started sleep training her the day of her baptism and she can now fall asleep, in her crib, without a paci, within 15 minutes. Yay! We started solids the same day as sleep training and she took to rice cereal ok; she’s been wearing more of it than actually eating it. (A little tip if you want to be crafty: if you plan on doing papier-mache, use baby rice cereal for your paste, because when that crap dries, it's not going ANYWHERE)

She got the go ahead for other foods today and we gave her oatmeal this evening, which she gobbled down like it was going out of style. And this was after consuming a double boob shot! We’ll probably move to barley in a week and then start trying some squash or sweet potatoes. I’m going to attempt to prevent my child from getting the same sweet tooth I have, so veggies yum yum here we come!

Now you're caught up to speed! We will post photo albums on our Picasa page soon, which you can link to through clicking the slideshow posted in the left hand sidebar on this blog. Take care and we’ll write soon!

To infinity and beyond,
Kelly & the Gang
