Lila, I can’t believe you have been with us for half a year now! The time has flown by SO fast!
This month was huge in terms of development. You moved into your own room and sleep in your own big girl crib – no more rock ‘n’ play! We did a few nights of sleep training, which you caught on to really quickly. You go to sleep in your bed no problem now. I am still feeding you once or twice over night, but that’s okay – I kind of like our time together nursing. Your naps are kind of hit or miss, but we can usually get you to sleep in the stroller or the car if you aren’t feeling the napping in the crib thing.
You started eating solid foods this month, too. So far you have had: whole grain rice cereal, oatmeal, prunes, avocado, sweet potatoes, pears and Baby Mum-Mums. Your favorites are oatmeal, sweet potatoes and pears. You’re not so into the avocado, but mama hopes you change your mind about that. You also learned how to drink through a straw!
You are sitting unsupported for longer and longer periods of time. You can roll on to your tummy and back again. You love your playmat, your jumperoo, the bath and “Top Gear”. You also think mama is a pretty hilarious songstress.
This month you went to your first Broadway League softball game, you visited the Lion Brand Yarn Studio, you celebrated your cousin PR’s birthday, hung out at the Astoria beer garden with Mama and went to see her old neighborhood, you went to an Arbor Day Festival, hung out lots with Nana, learned that you could belly laugh, blow raspberries, and discovered that pulling the kitty’s tail is pretty fun.
We are looking forward to taking you on your first plane ride this next month to visit all your family in California!
We love you, Lila Girl!
