We made it to the half year mark! Sloane’s doing amazing. She continues to grow both physically and developmentally. She is very skilled at grabbing, pulling, and sitting up, and as previously mentioned, she is a champion roller. Her teeth are useful for chomping on watermelon rinds, avocado, and apple, along with books, the coffee table, and Mom’s water bottle.
This was a post I worked on last month but forgot to publish. The pics are too good not to share.
Our good friends, the Wades, moved away for the summer. Sloane and Maera were really cute together the last couple times we saw them. We miss the Wade family and can’t wait for the girls to play together this September.
B likes to hold Sloane in her lap and is being really helpful. Most recently while holding Sloane, B remarked, “hmmm, Sloane’s pretty big!” Last year, B would always ask me where Adam was when she saw me. Now she only wants to know where Sloane is!
Luckily, Sloane has other little friends. When Rally met Sloane, she walked over and asked if Sloane would like to play with her. Alder and Gage are less than a year older than Sloane, but my guess is she’ll be bossing them around as she already out weighs them.
Sloane is such lucky little girl, and has 4 grandparents who she adores. My parents were nicknamed by Sloane’s cousin Ellie as Nini and Papa two (or too, there is debate between my sister and I on the original intent). Sloane has fun seeing them, regardless of what you call them.
Sloane now has two, yes two, teeth! We decided that since she has two chompers, that we can begin to give her food. Molly and I talked about it, and chose sweet potato. However, we also chose today to put her in a high chair for the first time at our house. She was really excited about being up at the table with mom and dad.
It took her a little to warm up to the idea of things tasting good, but by the end she was grabbing for more. We know that she doesn’t need the calories of food (she is not wasting away), so we are just introducing the tastes and textures of whole foods. Next up…. avocado!
