I'm sorry I didn't post your half-year update. It was the holidays and I was already behind... I kept meaning to still do it, but now it's already past time for your 7 month update! An awful stomach bug hit our house last week, and continues to bring us down one by one. You got it too- your first real illness, besides major sniffles. It was so sad to hold you as you got sick. Poor baby! Thankfully you seem to have survived just fine! And not even that has slowed you down much- you've been a very busy girl these months! Let's list some highlights:
|Up on your knees! This little face you're making is you grinding your gums together. You're doing this a lot lately- maybe we'll see some little teeth by the next update?|
~ And... speaking of the high chair ;), you are eating solids now. You started slow, but quickly took to the cereal. In fact, you were eating a bit too much of the rice cereal and I had to switch you to oatmeal to get a bit more fiber in you. And we're slowly getting through first fruits and veggies- bananas, sweet potatoes, apples, carrots, peas... but you'd rather just eat the cereal. We're still trying to find a good balance adding solids to your diet, bc now you want even less formula! You forced me to drop a bottle- you literally just would NOT eat it, so now you're at 4 bottles of 5-7oz each. I also mix your cereal with prepared formula, to add some calories to it. I wish you would drink more, but I can't force you- trust me, I've tried!
