Eating Like a Big Girl
Since Amelia is restless in her Bumbo, I used her highchair for the first time this afternoon! It was mine when I was a baby so it has been around for a long time! She did really well in it! Amelia loves rice cereal now. After she swallows she looks at you and opens her mouth wide as if to say, "more please!"
She was so happy to be eating like a big girl today:
We also tried her sippy cup again and she still isn't liking it much:
I am wondering if it tastes weird to her. I found another sippy cup that has a longer spout and is supposed to help babies transition easier from the bottle to the cup. It is supposed to be more like a bottle than a sippy cup. I am thinking that I might get one of those for her if she doesn't warm up to the one she has soon.
She took a late nap again today. I went in there to check on her and this is how I found her:
(it is so dark because I turned the flash off so I wouldn't wake her)
Morrison also thought it was a good idea to get into her crib and wake her from her nap. This is how I found them:
I don't know about this! I am going to have to keep a close eye on this guy from now on...
We are leaving in the morning to go "home" for the rest of the week. We have to come home earlier than originally planned because Jason is needed at work Saturday, but that is ok. I have been trying really hard to get things done around here tonight before we leave. I have a LOT of stuff packed into the car already...Jason will be happy I think!
I need to get some more cleaning done around here. We are leaving the cats (our neighbor Ellen is watching them for us) so the house will be a mess when we get home regardless of what I do tonight but I am at least going to try. I figure, the cleaner I leave it, it will be that much cleaner when we get home.
See some of you this week!
