Time for Solids

The doctor gave Lily the a-ok to start solids! She is now 25 inches and almost 13 pounds. We were going to wait awhile, but she has been staring us down during meal times, licking her lips like crazy, and grabbing at whatever pieces of food she can get! Here is a video of Lily's first solid - rice cereal. I tasted it myself and I can tell why she is not so enthusiastic. I think next time we'll try the banana rice cereal intstead!

Lily's also on the right track with all of her other milestones and actually a little ahead! She can sit up with just a little help, steps forward and supports her weight when you hold onto her fingers and stand her up, roll over front to back and back to front again, and she's just starting to army crawl. Before she was just aimlessly scootching, but now she is a baby with a mission when she see's her favorite toys! She also has abs of steel. In her swing she uses the lap bar to pull herself up from laying down at an angle to sitting up. She does about 5 crunches a sitting!

Lily is also loving her exersaucer. She has a blast pushing all of the buttons and levers. At first the sounds surprised her, but now she laughs every time she does it. She is also learning about eyes, mouths, noses, and ears. She likes to find them on her daddy's face.
