Since Kirianna learned to drink from a straw, she’s been sucking down water like it’s nobody’s business. That being said, she refuses to drink the following aside from a few sips to try it: milk, chocolate milk, Silk (soy milk), chocolate Silk, juice, and most of anything else I’d put into a baby. She tried some of my chai tea today, but just enough to sample. Since she’s been anti-milk, she’s been gobbling up yogurt with about as much gusto as water. She probably ate about 15 ounces of it today, no joke. She’s also refusing most of the pureed foods she’d been sucking down so well, but has been more experimental with actual solids (this is ok; you can hide purees in yogurt). She ate part of a saltine, tried some pepperoni but couldn’t chew it very well, tried some pizza dough but spit it right out. Like her big brother, she leans toward foods that are a bit spicy – her favorite things to try to eat include jalapeno flavored Cheetos and pizza flavored potato sticks.
We are down to two breastfeedings per day: afternoon and night. I cut out the morning session after realizing I could wake her up without it. She’s really freaking cranky by the feeding times, whether or not she’s eaten enough. Poor kid just likes to suck. Thankfully, she gets some practice with her straw so it’s not just on me, literally.
She spent a day standing by herself in 20 second intervals, but hasn’t been interested in it since.
I think she’s cutting two more teeth and that’s distracting her from, well, life. She currently has 4 on top and 2 on bottom.
Today she picked up a baby doll and held it on her shoulder just like we hold her, and then started patting its butt. She then snuggled her head down to it. It was seriously the most adorable thing. I should have the camera around more often in order to record it.
