Mila has found her feet! She bends in half, grabs them and opens her mouth. She has yet to actually get her feet in her mouth, but if she’s anything like her mother, she’ll have her foot in her mouth most of her life.
Her coordination has become steadier and everything goes into her mouth. She reaches and grabs and has figured out how the little blue bird pulls down and vibrates back up. I have one attached to a seat and one attached to her carrier. She’ll sit there and pull the bird, let it go up, pull again, and over and over.
Mila’s really taken to watching us eat and drink. It’s funny how her little head goes from the plate to our mouths as we fork in the food. Mila watches intently as daddy walks around the house. She pays attention to the TV, so I’ve started a “favorite” list for her. There isn’t a particular show she shows interest in quite yet, (I’m sure it’s the colors and sounds that attract her).
Mila watches everything we do and sometimes gets lost in staring at whatever it is. So much so that a simple call from daddy startles her. Mila loves my phone and has learned how to push buttons and swipe the screen. I have a few baby apps downloaded just for her.
She has begun to “talk” in her sleep. No surprise there. As much as Dan thinks Mila will be a quiet child, I know who her parents are.
She eats rice cereal with little mess, and I believe not long after I started this list, Mila started on a few more solids.
Mila screams when I read to her. Hmm, sounds familiar. (My mom tells the story of when I was little and she would read to me. I would cover her mouth.)
She sits and stands (a bit wobbly) with little help. She’s always been a standing kind of girl. I remember in the hospital we were all shocked at how she stretched her legs out and stood on me.
Large crowds don’t scare her, they seem to intrigue her. She has fallen asleep at the mall and a bowling alley, where I can only guess that over stimulation caused her to close her eyes and nod off. Other than this, Mila still doesn’t like to take naps…unless they are on mommy’s chest.
Mila is still trying to figure out how to crawl. She’ll get on her belly and wiggle back and forth. She can also lift her head really high while on her belly, she just can’t lift that belly.
Mila’s also starting to hold her bottle by herself. And she drools like a faucet runs.
