Also, she just had her first tooth poke through! It's barely in but it' s SHARP! I'm shocked that our babes are old enough to pull up and have teeth! Weren't they just born? It's a wonderful age but goodness it's going by fast. Blink abd you miss something.
In terms of milestones, aubrey has started to lift up the corners of our area rugs to look for things. Peekaboo is a really fun game, and we are getting ojr first real bouts of separation anxiety.
I don't have any food inisghts for you, Tenk. Holly has had avocado and loves it! She has had apples and is indifferent, but she loves them when I mix some w/ banana.
Holly had her 6 mos check up today (2 weeks late owing to insurance coverage and the 1st of the year). She may have started out teeny tiny but she has caught up. She is now 16 lbs and 26" long. Yay!
B has had tastes of egg yolk, turkey/chicken/beef broth, applesauce, avacados, sweet pot, and squash. By taste I mean less than a T total for each sitting which is maybe every other day. He probably has the most of the broth and egg yolks as his gag reflex is still going strong. He loves sucking in a spoon dipped in broth though.
Leora turned 7 months on the 5th & she just loves food. I'm kind of taken aback, she gets freaked out if I don't share samples while cooking. I nursed my first 2 for 14 months & my 3rd for 17 & I don't remember any of them going after food so aggressively. My second never got solids until 9 months because she just refused to acknowledge solid food existed, lol. The diapers are not fun, but washing them doesn't take that much extra time; I have taken to separating & washing the pees before the poos to keep them as clean as possible.
We've got some version of crawling going on. I'm not sure if it's crawling or creeping, but she gets to where she wants to go like a walrus/ merbaby, dragging her legs behind her. Since I shot the video, she's only gotten more efficient at not using her legs, her upper body strength is amazing. I'm going to have another fanged baby, her top incisors are poking through before her front ones. Here she is in the bottom video, showing her stuff.
Voondrop, how special is that?! I look at Leora and think of myself - your family is my family growing up. I was the youngest of 4 and the birth order was boy, girl, girl, girl! Leora must love having all of her kid siblings playing w/ her all the time.
Holly is just starting to push up w/ her arms. She has not yet figured out the plank or how to tuck her knees up underneath her. However, she is very proficient w/ the machine gun noise. ;-)
The baby just turned 6 month and is pretty much disgusted by the mere suggestion of solid food. We've tried some avocado, banana, and mango and she is insulted by all of them.
Go baby Easton! That is pretty much exactly where B is at in his crawling.
And Kitteh B is also slightly disgusted with food. There are a few things he is ok with tasting, mostly meat/eggs, but anything with any texture he turns up with a disgusted face and looks at me like i'm crazy. so we just keep trying tastes here and there and when he's ready he'll eat.
Our big news is B can now say Uh-Oh and does allllll the time! It is super cute and everytime anything or himself falls he says loudly "uh-oh!" He is also waving a big whole arm baby wave which strangers love. So fun watching our littles grow up....
