We've been trying all kinds of new foods lately. Today we added green beans to menu. Ella likes them! One point for the "likes" list! We really haven't found anything that she doesn't like. For a little while, we thought bananas would end up on the "no thank you" list, but after we took a break for a week and tried them again, they are definitely a keeper. So far we've tried squash, sweet potatoes, peas, and green beans along with bananas, peaches, pears, and apple sauce. She still loves her brown rice and, more than anything else, her oatmeal. What should we try next?
Sorry about the lapse in blog entries. Our internet was down for the last week and I didn't get out to check more than my email during that time. We're back in business as of an hour ago, so I thought I'd post something new right away. I hate waiting. Why would I make you? Unfortunately, I don't have pics to include today, but that might change by the end of the day. We'll see how ambitious I get.
Ella is now seven months old, crawling like nobody's business, chewing on everything she can get her hands on, and incredibly curious. She loves to show off her smile at everyone we pass when we go shopping or sit at a coffee shop. Her two little teeth are crazy sharp, so if you play with her, don't get your fingers too close to her mouth. Seriously. She loves peek-a-boo and has developed an adoration for "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star." She wants to stand as often as possible and loves to walk (quickly!) when both hands are held. She's even occasionally brave enough to take a few steps holding just one of our hands. Her balance is getting better each day, and she has tried standing on her own for just a moment a handful of times. We're excited to see the progress she'll make over the next month as she keeps trying new things and gaining more confidence. We'll keep you posted!
