I missed it! The weeks are just flying by. But some eventful things happened today, or at least some new things.
Evie sat up on her own for a minute or two, and only fell over once. She tried avocado, and did not like it (though she doesn't like most foods). Then she tried frozen banana slices in one of those mesh bag things, and loved it. Not sure how much actually went down, but she sure loved gumming it!
Today Evie also discovered her daddy's beard. During story time she kept looking at him and then reaching up to touch it. It was adorable.
Did I mention that she really plays with toys now? Here is the object of every game: get the toy to her mouth.
We've had some sleep regression, she usually wakes up around midnight and one am. I think it is a combination of her napping in the day now (which is glorious) and growing/being hungrier. The one night she ate a good amount of rice cereal mixed with applesauce, she slept until 4:30 am. Subsequent nights she's remembered how bland it is and clamps her little mouth shut.
The napping resulted from finally letting her cry it out. She now only cries a few minutes before falling asleep. Now, if I could only get her to sleep longer than 20-40 minutes!
