Developing Kaija

I haven’t posted in a while, so I thought I’d give a quick update. Kaija started teething within the past few weeks and has two teeth protruding from her lower gum to show for it. Very exciting news! The down side is that she’s been very cranky in the evenings when we lay her down to sleep. We’ve started to feed her real food, too. First it was rice cereal mixed with breast milk. Then is was pureed squash. We plan to introduce her to pureed green beans next.She’s also nearly crawling! She’s much more comfortable being on her stomach than she was in the past now that her neck and arm muscles are strong enough that she can hold her head up. At this point she can push her self up onto her hands and knees – sometimes even onto her hands and feet – and proceeds to rock back and forth on them. Once she figures out how to move one of those arms, we’re done for. We haven’t even come close to baby-proofing the apartment.Yesterday she also figured out how to roll from both back-to-front and front-to-back all by herself. Our little girl is growing up so fast! The next 18 years are going to fly by so quickly.
