Sadie feeds herself pears

Here she is eating the pear. Watch how she hates to get a big chunk. Right now we are just playing with our food, it seems. As long as we have nutritious breastmilk we are good!

What fun!

Sorry, it's been a while. Things have been crazy at the office.

Sadie has been cranky the last few days. And I mean cranky. Not even mommy is calming her fast. So I felt around in her mouth and I can feel a spot on her lower gum that's rough. Will feels it too. So I guess we'll have a tooth soon, maybe.

She ate a big piece of pear yesterday. I gave her half of a very ripe pear and she sucked on it and ate about half until it was too small and in pieces. I have a video of her today eating a pear that I will post soon.

Anyway, watch this video of her laughing while daddy bites her tummy.

6 Months Old!

So Sadie is 1/2 a year old! It's hard to believe she has been here that long but also hard to believe she hasn't been here forever.

She is really starting to Goo goo ga ga a lot. And she is saying dadadadadada. So far no mamamama. I'm trying not to take offense even though she doesn't know what it means.

They say dadada is easier to say and is usually before the M sound.

So here's a funny pic.

OK, Now you may be tired of watching Sadie eat but this is really cute.

I was eating a bowl of rice and sitting on the floor with her while we were playing. She saw my bowl of rice and was watching me eat it and bouncing and laughing like she was interested. So I went and made her a little oatmeal and she was excited.

Watch her (sort of) gobble it up. She'll be swallowing all her food in no time!

Cereal, the serial.


Sadie's first cereal

We gave Sadie her first oatmeal on Tuesday 6/5. Her first cereal of any kind, actually.

What did she think of it? Well, she definitely wasn't too excited. Everything I've read about feeding your baby says to follow cues and not force so if she doesn't want it she doesn't have to have it.

I tried again today, again with oatmeal. She had a lot of fun spitting it out. I gave her her own spoon and she had a good time trying to get it into her mouth. I don't think she swallowed anything, though.

And the faces she made when she got banana! I don't know if she swallowed some and that felt strange to her or what. But she did not like that.

I am posting a few pics and there will be videos to see soon.

Why, hello!

Well, here we are, joining the blogosphere. Hopefully I will get to post often and keep all y'all up to date on the life and times of Sadie. And the life and times of her parents too.
