She eats one meal per day of solids. She loves to eat puffs in her high chair. She still is an awesome nurser. She is so sweet when she is nursing. She'll usually pat my arm rhythmically or stroke my arm with her buttery soft fingers. Sometimes she'll scratch or pinch. Also sometimes she'll play with her hair or ear.
She is sitting pretty well unassisted. About once a day she'll fall backwards. She can pivot pretty well on her bottom. She also is still working on her crawling. She can get on all 4s and is working on trying to move. She is super wiggly when you hold her so I know she just wants to move.
Her hair still stands straight up. She has one little tuft on top in the back that is an inch or so longer than the rest of her hair. It's like a little Indian feather or something. Very cute. I'd call her a blond but there is definitely some red going on. Strawberry blond I guess. Her eyebrows and lashes have the same strawberry blond coloring.
She is a little chatter box and jabbers a lot. She likes to say DA DA DA a lot. We try to teach her that Kermit is Dada but she's not getting it yet. She likes to sing and hum as well which about melts me.
She loves to bang on the piano, take baths, splash in water, visit the chickens, take walks outside, be held and played with. A couple of days ago at church a mom sat down next to us with her 12 month old. Oh my! Althea just loved it! She was so excited to see another baby. It was hilarious! The 12 month old was a crawler so the mom ended up taking him out because he was just too busy to contain. Sorry Althea. Maybe next time.
Love that baby!
Loves to be outside. Loves her exersaucer too.
Her first selfie.
Helps with the laundry.
Loves the bath.
Sisters dressed her up in the beret. Loves the puffs.
