Erica: The A-Maze-ing Acrobat

Saturday, a bunch of us got together to go to a Corn Maze. I was so excited-- i had never been to one before. The only problem was... Andrew insisted on taking Erica with us. I was so fearful-- what if she starts screaming while in the middle of the maze? How could we get out? ...

Well, she was totally FINE. she really had a good time. Andrew put her in the Snuggli (its a front-carrier thing). We then took her on a hay ride. she was a little antsy at that-- but i gave her some cheerios, so she was okay.

We were there for like 2 hours. Then, everyone came over to our house for dinner, movies, pumpkin pie, etc. Erica was having so much fun. There were so many people to play with. She was a little "acrobat." Climbing, jumping, etc. Who needs a jungle gym, when you have people to climb over?

When everyone left, we were SO tired. Unfortunately Erica was not. I put her in bed cuz she wouldnt be happy in her crib. but she kept crawling up on me, jumping on me. She was so HYPER! i said to andrew: Who gave her sugar? -- completely joking.

To which he replied: i didnt know if there was sugar in it.

what? he was just joking. But it sparked interesting conversation with us. Andrew wants to start giving her crap-food. my take on it is that her body is too little to handle it yet. Plus, what if she's allergic to something that we dont know yet? we cant just give her some multi-ingredient food yet. Plus, she really does not need that sugar. And, she's just learning to eat cheerios. She could choke on something that is more solid than they are.

erggg. I dont want my daughter eating sugary-snacks yet. She doesnt need them. And, she's only SEVEN MONTHS old. she has her entire life to be tempted with crap... why start now already? We would be best to hold it off as long as possible.
