She is a garbage disposal, she will eat just about anything that you put in front of her. Now that she has 8 teeth Precia and I are hoping that the teething is done for a little while, at least a month. She hasn't really stopped teething since she got her first 2 the day she turned 4mo.

In this time, I have also discovered that I am a crappy parent, at least to my extended family. We haven't had any pr…
