Half a Year!?!
She started solids two months back and is loving it! Her favorites are definitely pear, pear and more pear! She likes things with flavor, homemade hummus for example and avocado, but only if there is a touch of onion powder and salt. She already craves independence in eating so the rice crackers are becoming a staple if we want a quieter meal as a family.
She always has a warm smile for Isaac and is facinated by Keila's hair. With Eli we already see the love-hate relationship the older two have, echoed when they are paired together. She laugh the biggest belly laughs when they 'jump and dance' together. She especially loves playing peek a boo with him. But Eli is quick to assert his position as the older sibling, dictating when it is her turn to over her face with the blanket. If at times she commanders more attention from me, he will put his face close to her to intimidate and pull what little fuzzy hair to has as if to reminder her who's boss! She's learned the system though and is more than capable of defending herself, she wails her displeasure and gives him a piece of her mind from the safety of our arms. she is one tough cookie!
Three weeks ago she began to sit up. She's in the 88th percentile for height but only the 27th percentile for weight, her petite frame makes her look entirely too little to being doing this already. With each child time seems to pass more quickly and before I know it she'll be crawling. With all her spunk and personality, we are grateful to have her in our lives. Thanks for being you pumpkin!
