Cupcake is 8 1/2 months old now. She is such a sweet baby! We’ve started her on solids; so far, she’s tried egg yolk, banana, spinach, carrots, applesauce, and yogurt, and even a taste of mild chili, and she gobbled them all up.
She isn’t really crawling yet, but she can quickly get wherever she wants by scooting or rolling. She is holding herself way up with her arms, so I think she will be crawling soon.
She says, “Papa,” “Mama,” “hi,” and “bye-bye,” and she knows how to wave bye-bye. She also does the sign language for “milk” and “diaper.” In our family, we (especially T and D.L.F.) often roar like lions at each other just for fun, and Cupcake has figured out how to roar in her own way when she wants to be in on the action.
