Maggie turned 8 months old on February 2nd! She's playing very well and able to entertain herself quite a bit now. We also just discovered that she knows exactly how to hold a bottle and has had us fooled for over a month now! :) Today, she fed herself the entire bottle with absolutely no help. Just this week, she cut her first top tooth. This brings the grand total to 3 little chompers now.
She's been putting all three of them to work trying new foods. This is a funny picture of Maggie trying Puffs (baby puffed cereal) snacks for the first time. So far, Maggie has had bananas, pears, apples, peas, green beans, squash, sweet potatoes, and rice and oatmeal cereal. In addition to her usual 4 bottles of formula a day, she also eats cereal/fruit mixture in the morning, vegetable near lunch time, and some sort of cereal/fruit/vegetable serving at supper.
Riley has let his imagination really start taking him places! For example, it was his idea to create this "train" out of pillows and make sure he went and got his conductor hat so that he could ride on it correctly! How cute. Pictured below, he's giving the green guy a haircut.
