Daisy has reached some milestones lately.
Daisy loves to sit up. Also spit up and drool, by the looks of her shirt.
Ever since we had our visit to North Carolina, Daisy has been very anxious to grow up. I really do believe that spending so much time with her cousin Liam, who is two months older than her, influenced her desire to move around. Before our visit, she hated tummy time and only rolled occasionally. Since we have returned, she has mastered rolling, tummy time, and recently started trying to sit up. She can now stay sitting up if we place her there, but can't get up on her own.
We have started giving Daisy solids. She loves it. Her favorites so far have been mangoes and bananas. She tolerates sweet potatoes, and seems to enjoy other vegetables like squash, carrots, spinach, and peas. Until I replace my blender, we are using these organic foods. Once I get a new blender or a food processor, I will probably start making our own baby food-especially if our garden goes well.
She kept pretty good spirits throughout the ordeal. This is a picture of her enjoying the evenings we would have in the bathroom, hoping the steam would help with her congestion. Thankfully, we are finally on the tail end of her first illness. She still has a runny nose, and her sleeping isn't back to what I would like it to be, but what her sleeping ever really great? No. It wasn't.
