This morning was our first attempt at solids. And by solids, I mean rice cereal mixed with milk. Our pediatrician advised us that it might take a bit for her to take to solids...and that seems to be the case. She didn't scream or cry but she didn't even come close to taking even 1 teaspoon of food.
She started out happy and took the spoon, until she wouldn't. She was definitely full and wouldn't take any ounces of milk before nap time either. We'll keep trying!
Happy 5 month birthday today, Liliana! We celebrated this morning by going for a long walk up to the good grocery store to get Joe some honey and to buy a Mega Millions ticket. But, tomorrow, she's going to start trying rice cereal in with some milk. We're all going to have breakfast together at the table :)
Liliana has been working hard at watching us talk and has finally now added B's to her list of things she can predictably "say". This is a small snippet - oftentimes this past weekend, she has just kept going on and on for minutes or we can hear her in her room saying, "bababababa" before drifting off to sleep :)
Liliana is 20 weeks today and all dressed up. She's currently singing along to Beatles and playing in her Exersaucer while I post these pictures.
She loves it when I sing along with the songs and sing to her. It's beautiful here today, so we're going to get out for a walk a little later.
We already checked out the garden today and made sure to check all of our herbs and tomatoes. We did notice that something dug up one of our budding carrots!
Liliana is 19 weeks this week! She loves her Jumperoo and purposely lets her feet off the ground so that she can bounce a little bit in the seat. She has figured out how to turn around in the seat and reach all of the toys, including the very interesting but empty, snack tray.
Speaking of which, she has become very interested when Joe and I eat. She just stares at us. We go to our pediatrician in a few more weeks and she already told us that she's going to recommend starting solids in about 3 weeks, so Liliana will get to try some yummy food!
