I'm a happy RN married to a hardworking resident. We have recently become Carolina fans and are adding the color "carolina" blue to our wardrobe and home. I love the east coast and couldn't be happier living in hot, sticky climate. I was raised on a farm/ranch with two wonderful parents and three fun loving older sisters. I went to a one room country school house down the dusty dirt road with grand total of three in my class. Life in the country was rich, meaningful, and simple, just the way I like it. So from country farmgirl to coastal bell, here I am, living life and loving it!

Eating Solids

Jonah started eating solids about two weeks ago.  We started with just plain rice cereal which he did not like at all, but when I added homemade pears to it he chowed it down.  He did really good eating solids pretty much right away.  I am so thankful for that because so many people told me that starting them on solids really is not a fun thing.  They sometimes don't like, won't open their mouths, and it is really messy.  But Jonah did great.  He opens his mouth wide, likes almost everything, and it is every bit messy but it's kinda cute!  He just smears food everywhere but enjoys eating so that's ok.  We are just hanging out today.  We went to breakfast with my neighbor and her little girl Maddie, who turned one today.  What a great Valentine's Day gift, and sweet precious baby!  Tim is in Cincinnati interviewing for a pediatric anesthesia fellowship.  He left yesterday at about 6:30 and will be hom tonight at 10pm.  Oh the days of residency so long, but will someday pay off!  And my mom gets here tomorrow night!  So excited for her to come visit.  I have been needing something to look forward to since we are in the dead of winter and I am so anxious for summer to get here.

 Isn't that man handsome?!  Tim was the host for interviews a couple of weeks ago so he gets all dressed up and takes the interviewees all over Chapel Hill and shows them what a good time UNC has.  I just love it when he gets all dressed up!
 The fist bite of rice cereal.  Not liking it.  Kind of a funny face!

 Waiting for the pears and squash to get done.  Always so happy.

 One of our friends got Jonah this cute doctors kit that has 5 different pieces that are plush.  Jonah loves the stethoscope and like to suck on the end of it.  Maybe one day he will be a doctor like daddy?

Squash is the best.  Jonah loves him some squash.  I was excited when he just opened right up.  He was so fun and easy to feed for the first time.  All smiles he is.


  1. Hi Amy! Thanks for sharing these pictures. Have a fun time with your Mom! :)

    1. It was pretty fun feeding him for the first time because he liked it! We are having a wonderful time with mom so nice to have her visit, I realize how much I miss them when they are out! Hope you are all well!

  2. Amy, Jonah is so cute and looks like the sweetest baby.
    I love reading the things he is up to these days... because it reminds me of what is to come in just a few short weeks with Emalina. I'm so happy that you are enjoying motherhood and staying at home with your little man! There is nothing like it! I hope you have a great visit with your mom. Take care!
