Eleanor hasn't quite been her cheery self this week, just acting a little off. Her nose is drippy and her routine hasn't recovered from the Christmas holiday festivities, so she hasn't been eating or sleeping so great. No matter, she has happily moved from rice cereal with formula to mashed bananas. A few weeks ago she was doing great eating homemade apple baby food, but that seemed to make her gassy and fussy, so we're giving that a break. I've already got a batch of pear baby food made & in the freezer and last night I made a batch of peas for us to try next. I steamed them and then pureed in the NutriBullet before using an ice tray to divide into servings and freeze for future use. We'll see if she appreciates my efforts (which, by the way is SO easy and I really quite enjoy doing).
I'm not sure that I mentioned this earlier and it is definitely worth announcing... I have, in my possession, the final decree of adoption. It's been final for more than a week, but I now have the papers that say so. There aren't really words to express how great this feels. God is good. All the time. Now we wait for the birth certificate (it will have our names as her parents!) and then we can get a social security number so we can file our taxes.
