I guess it was about 3 weeks ago the switch flipped and she's usually done eating in 10-15 minutes. I can like this :)
Her hand-eye coordination is getting better each day. She loves to reach out and explore anything dangling; she hasn't started to reach out while she's on her tummy yet. She also rolls over from back to front quite easily and without complaining as of this week. Now she just complains trying to get rolled back onto her back!
Her sitting up muscles and neck muscles are strong enough now that she can sit in her Bumbo seat pretty well. She can't do it for a long length of time, but she doesn't flop over anymore :)
She loves her Daddy!! She's almost a fast with a grin for him as she is for me, and Daniel sure does love it :)
In the last week or so she started waking early out of her naps. Most of the time she wouldn't fully wake up and would go back to sleep if I gave her her paci... then once last week and twice this week she woke up in the middle of the night. Twice she went back to sleep and once she did not - she was hungry. Putting all of those together we decided it was time to start her on Rice Cereal :)
Last night was her first taste of it :) She did not like it!! She fussed and fussed but we managed to get some in her (we think, anyway). But... she slept straight through the night, and didn't wake up until 7:30 this morning. Ahhh :) This evening after her last feeding I mixed up about 1 Tbsp. again and she still didn't like it, but she didn't fuss this time, and she ate everything that didn't get on her face :) Now I just get to look forwards to her first "solid food" poopy diaper! Haha!!
And so a new adventure in parenthood begins :)
