She just moves so much these days.

Close encounter

The cat ventured up to lie on the bed with us. It was short lived as the cat nipped at the girl and was banished.


...not liking carrots. Even mixed with rice cereal, she only barely tolerated them. Sigh.

Drew and great gramma


Drew rode shotgun with me all the way from Berkeley

Drew the goalie

He's practicing drop kicks

At the big table, now

Katie's been cranky about the Bumbo of late, twisting and turning, so I figured I'd put the travel high chair on our table and see how she likes it. It went on super easy and she seems to be intrigued. It's huge for her, but she'll grow into it.

See how little her feet stick out? Just wait a few months - she'll have her knees there anytime, now. :)

Kung fu sleeping?

She's patenting a new sleep position - kung fu sleeping.

She's totally unimpressed with carrots. Despite the fact that they're super sweet fresh organic baby carrots and ridiculously sweet for carrots, she was less than thrilled. Ah, well, three more days of carrots before moving on.

She slept 90 minutes this morning. Now on to an afternoon nap! It's the beginning of semi regular napping! Yay!!!

Smooshed face

Katie has taken to sleeping on her tummy whenever possible.

Break down in negotiations

When I wouldn't take Sophie the giraffe in exchange for my Kindle, Katie decided to take it by force. If only she could crawl...

Movies time

We almost had the theater to ourselves.

First solids!

Katie always starts fussing whenever she smells food or sees people eating at e table. So I finally caved. I was going to until her six month birthday, but she's REALLY interested in food. So I gave her some rice cereal mixed with a whole lot of expressed milk. I think she did pretty well. I'd say at least half went down the throat. the rest was graciously donated to the bib. We'll do a few more days of rice cereal and then move on to homemade applesauce.

A clean shot of teeth!

Drew and Teeghan

Drew to the rescue with a bottle! I may hav to start letting Drew give Katie a bottle every once in a while. He seemed to like it.

She's got wheels!

Watch out toes!

Well, this pretty much solidifies it - she's getting solids tomorrow. She is doing so well at sitting up by herself. She only occasionally pitches backwards, which is why the boppy is there if I am not. And she seems to enjoy the autonomy.

Gnawing on bread...

I made myself some toast and Katie, smelling food, started fussing. So I brought her to the table, sat her in the bumbo and gave her the heel off the loaf of sourdough. She was intrigued and played with it. I then thought again and took it away...and then had to give it back. She loved on it for a solid fifteen minutes before I took it away for good. She seemed to really enjoy having something to put in her mouth that tasted like something. Maybe we'll start solids in the next day or two...
