Kylie Update

Kylie is eating her first solids with gusto. We added pureed avocado with breast milk to her diet yesterday. We are feeding her around 9:00am and again at around 4:30pm. She will enthusiastically eat the whole bowl each time. She grins everytime we say "Yummy" and she loves to talk, talk, talk while we are feeding her. She's quite the social diner.

She'll also take occasional sips of water from her sippy cup after she's finished eating. She's going to sleep around 7:30 - 8:30 these days. And for a few nights, she slept until 7:00am with no interruptions.

Her eye-hand coordination is improving. She can reach out and grab objects easily. She can also grab her toes and play with them. She's also starting to put weight in her feet and legs to stand.

Her emotions are becoming more evident. She squirms and looks at the floor when she wants down. And as you can see in this picture, we can even tell when she gets bored.

She can do a full "cobra" when on her belly and can lift her arms and legs when she's in this position.

And she's started patting the board book pages as we read to her.

As for us, we got a fabulous shelving unit with rolling baskets to add to our food pantry to hold baby food and other items. It's crazy how an organizing item will make me so stupidly happy.

And we finally found a baby gate for the bottom of our stairs and for our laundry room. The laundry room gate was tricky because one of the posts needed to be large enough for the cats to squeeze through and get to their food and litter. But we found one that works.

Kylie loves to play on her belly and I've been told that might mean she'll crawl early. So I'm proud of us for taking these first steps in getting our house childproofed.

Here's a final picture of our sweet pea.

YAY for eating going so well. How wonderful that she just gobbles it up! It sounds like she will be easy going when it comes to food.

Thanks for updating us on all of the changes and milestones Kylie is meeting. It sounds like she is amazing. :) And, so beautiful too.
