She's been doing great at Child Watch at the gym. She'll cry, but it's only because she's tired and ready for a nap. In other random social skills, she's noticed our dogs. She'll watch them play or squeal when they come close to her and always reaches out to pet.
Mama's milk and baby foods!
We started with sweet potatoes, and have since had green beans, bananas, carrots, and avocado. So far didn't seem to hate any but I think the green beans and carrots might have been harder to digest, and she really wasn't interested in the avocado. She really loved the bananas and sweet potatoes, just like her sister.
I'm also wondering if we are in a growth spurt or if my supply is tanking. It seems like she's nursing more often and while I'm hoping the addition of solids will help, so far it doesn't seem to be. I'm going to ask the pediatrician about supplementing, although her growth and diaper count seems okay. She may just be a distracted snacker, but I wouldn't mind cutting down the session count.
The WonderWeeks app says we are middle of a 'stormy' period, she's in her 5th leap learning relationships like distance and that things can be on top, under, behind, etc. Which probably explains her absolute love of Peek a Boo. Also, loves Frozen songs which is guess means requests for "Fo-man" (Do You Want To Build A Snowman?) are at an all time high. I was able to calm her in the car simply by singing that over any lullaby.
She's still a mommy's girl, but getting better about being with others, most likely thanks to the gym. She's so happy and in the perfect squishy kicky baby stage and I LOVE it. Belly kisses and footie raspberries are her jam. And she's mine.
Happy 6 Month Birthday, Kenley!
