You are so sweet, we all love you so much. You always have a smile on your face and brighten our day.
We started you on solids around 5 months and 2 weeks. I know doctors suggest waiting until 6 months, but you wanted food so bad. You smacked your lips and tried grabbing the spoon. We ended up just giving you a little bit to see if you were curious, or actually wanted the food. You instantly ate it and reached for more. So far you have had applesauce, carrots, green beans, bananas, and cereal. You favorite by far is applesauce. Carrots are probably a close second. You may be eating green beans nonchalantly then I give you a bite of applesauce and you instantly change demeanors. You start panting and yelling for more. It cracks us up. You aren’t a huge fan of bananas. I am thinking it is more the texture. You will eat it fine until you hit a chunk then gag and make faces. As far as nursing, you eat anywhere between 3-4 hours through the day.
You still go to bed around 7 and wake up to eat at 5 then go back to sleep until 6:30-7ish. Naps are so random. You normally take 2-3 naps a day. More often two if they are good naps. They range from 30 min to 2 hours on a good day. More often though it is around 1 hour. When you go to bed late and are overtired you normally wake up earlier than 5, but if we keep you well rested and in bed at 7 you most always make it to 5.
Your sitting balance is really good, but you don’t sit all by yourself yet. You can roll all over and have tried scooting forward when on your belly. You absolutely love toys, and Sophie the giraffe is a favorite. You love eating anything and chewing on anything you get your hands on. You are very obsessed with faces and like to grab them. You also randomly like to suck on our chin :). You love watching your sister and like to giggle and laugh when we get you excited by kissing your cheeks. You know what you want and get mad when you can’t get it. Like Kina was at this age, you too are obsessed with your lamp on the changing table. You scoot your way up on your back and try to grab at the lamp.
A few things you are loving:
-Watching your sister
-Chewing on things
