Little Miss Grabbypaws is discovering the fact that she can roll in both directions whenever she wants. This is making her behave as if she were an octopus while being fed, changed, and held – she’s pretty much climbing around whenever the conditions allow. She’s also starting to put herself at risk of rolling off of the bed, so she needs to be supervised just a bit more. She’s also starting to get up on her knees and rock around all pre-crawler like. She will reach out toward someone offering to hold her, sort of managing to dive at me.
Solid food feeding is going well. We’re up to 1.5 times per day of solids (2 times per day with a lot of days missing that second feeding). She vastly prefers vegetables to fruits. Since nobody in this household tends to actually prefer vegetables, I wonder how long this will last. New foods are being accepted well and the repertoire is increasing rapidly. She still likes her foods mixed with oatmeal cereal.
She’s also becoming VERY clingy. If I set her down, she doesn’t like it if I venture more than about a foot from her. As one could imagine, this is making anything that does not fall under the category of holding or entertaining Kirianna very difficult. It’s a bit easier when Tristan and/or James are around, as they provide entertainment so I can actually go get food or go pee without creating a wah-storm. She’s very much like her big brother in this department, only I think he was actually easier to distract with flashing lights on toys.
