Life's been busy, no time for blogging it seems!

Teagan is surprising me with all sorts of new words, she understands so much, and repeats a lot, too! We had a little playgroup at our house, my friend's 3 year old daughter and 18 month old son came over. Teagan had a blast dancing around the livingroom with them, and getting drenched in the yard with them. I am THRILLED to have a yard for Teagan. We bought a little wading pool which she LOVES and it's nice to have a clean, safe place to play, just outside the door!

Had to visit the doctor for a nasty diaper rash and the fact her raspy breathing and intermittent cough is lingering. Doctor isn't concerned about the rasping, says it's just a little mucous she hasn't cleared out. She weighed in at 26 pounds. I knew she was getting bigger! I'm happy she is a healthy weight. I don't worry too much about her diet (Vegan/nut-free) but it's still nice to get reassurances and facts on our side in case we meet resistance anywhere.

On the topic of diet, I've been trying to find more "treat" things Teagan can eat, quick snacky foods, portable things, sharable treats, things like that. I want foods that are easy to pack for lunches, take in the car, or share on playdays. Plus things with a few more calories than fruits and veggies, which are her staples. We managed successful vegan chocolate chip cookies the other day - Teagan has no interest in them. I found a great deal on Organic Toaster Pops (poptarts basically) - again, no interst. She will eat any fruit except melons (havent tried watermelon) most veggies, loves peas and broccoli especially, and kidney beans are a favorite food of hers. But try get the kid to eat a sweet? Not that I'm complaining, I just find it funny. She will eat Licorice (red) though, and stole the piece out of my hand the other day, despite holding a piece of her own at the time!
