From Crawling To Standing To Climbing In 2 Days -- Written By Bel

By now, Kayleigh has fully mastered the crawl.

The day after she started crawling, she started pulling herself up into a standing position. She has been able to bear her weight on her legs since she was about 4 months old - She could even pull herself up to stand if she was on your lap & you grabbed her arms. But now she's crawling to things & pulling herself up on her own! I've even walked into her room & found her standing in her crib!!!

And it wasn't long before she found her way to the steps in the den, which she can now easily crawl up into the kitchen.

Crawling -- Written by Bel

Sunday was a very big day for us...we learned how to crawl! Kayleigh has been getting into the position now for a while but that's all it was for the longest time. But then she leaned forward to get to her toy piano & I guess that sparked something. Still not crawling, but definitely trying to move on her own.

Later that afternoon, we held her Winnie The Pooh bear a little out of reach & she crawled right over to him!! What a huge difference just a few hours makes!!

Unrelated but funny, Kayleigh discovered how to kick off her pants. She did this all herself.

Little Yellow Taxi -- Written by Bel

Kayeigh's BFF Kira gave her a toy taxi a few weeks ago. Normally she plays with it for a few minutes and then is done, as she is with every toy. For whatever reason, she found it particularly entertaining one day and laughed at it for a good half hour.

We're Back & Starting Foods -- By Bel

We took a brief hiatus there for a while, but we're back & can't wait to share everything with you! So much has been happening & Kayleigh has been changing so much!

One of the biggest changes is that she has started eating solid foods. We were lucky enough to have our friends buy us a baby food mill, so we have been making most of the food she eats & with organic fruits & vegetables. Our first try was some mashed bananas (or naners as we've been calling them). She didn't seem to like those too much, as evidenced by her gagging. LOL. We tried a few times, and she finally stopped making faces, but I still don't think they're her favorite.

The second food we tried was avocados and she LOVED them!! Since then she's also had rice cereal, oatmeal, apples, peaches, pears, carrots, sweet potatoes, blueberries, nectarines, and most recently green beans. Her favorite by far remains avocados.
