So many fun things happening this month little one! Where do I begin? You love getting up into crawling position and rocking back and forth on your hands and knees, and you're even crawling backwards a bit! I can leave the room and when I come back in, you're almost always in a completely different spot than where I left you :) You've gotten better at falling asleep on your own (sometimes without any crying!), and the night waking has gotten less for the most part. Some nights you even sleep through the night (few and far between, but I'll take whatever I can get!) You absolutely adore your big sister - she never fails to make you smile, and you've been making the funniest sounds and cutest faces. You make me laugh every single day with your antics.
We've also started on solids! We're doing a combination of purees and actual real person food. Your favorite purees so far are carrots, prunes, and mangoes, and your arch nemesis seems to be pureed peas. I don't blame you - they look pretty disgusting. As far as real person food, you seem to like most everything I give you. So far you've sampled apples, asparagus, carrots, potatoes, avocado, green beans, chicken, and pork. You're also sitting up on your own, although mama keeps a close watch because you're still pretty wobbly!
Our biggest issue this month has been the dreaded numero dos - I guess all of that new food we're putting into your belly is causing some issues! While we're still nursing like champs, mama has started supplementing before bedtime with a small bottle of formula, because you always seem so unsatisfied when I try to put you down. It seems to be doing the trick - after a few extra ounces your tummy is nice and full and you go right to sleep. You're still our happy, smiley, curious girl and we love you to pieces! Happy half birthday baby! xo, Mommy, Daddy, and Violet
And here are months one through six...
