Over 40 mama — Adventures in poop, patience, and first-time parenthood

Solid food!

The bean ate her first bits of solid food yesterday! A smattering of (organic, brown) rice cereal and a whole lot of expressed milk from mama moo cow.

Not only did she eat it, she LOVED eating it.  She was totally interested in the spoon, and in fact tried to take it away from me many times so she could feed herself.   Go bean go!


Bean mobility: #1 in a series

Gosh, has it really been three weeks since I last wrote? Crappity crap.

Well, okay, the Bean is JUST about to crawl.  She can roll over from tummy to back and vice versa, and skooches her way around in circles, but cannot yet hoist one knee in front of the other.  Indeed, she is now totally able to acquire anything she wants on the floor by rolling over from tummy to back towards said desired object.   In fact, the object is only desirable if it’s 4 feet across the floor, just out of reach.

She can also grab stuff – eg. your plate or a knife – off the table when she’s sitting on your lap.

And, as a nod to both her parents, she gets very frustrated when she can’t do what she wants.
