New things Raegan has been doing in the last week or so:
*She pulled up on the recliner, without using someone's pant legs to assist, for the first time. Then she stood barely leaning against my leg, and stood on her own for about a second before she toppled over.
*Raegan plays catch now. She loves these small hard balls that came with a helicopter my mom got her. She'll hold them in her hands forever, but if you throw one to her, she will throw it back to you. We'll do it back and forth ten or fifteen times - she loves it!
*Her right bottom tooth is starting to poke through.
*She's started making noises like a monkey or owl, kind of a "hmmm" or "whooo" type of noise. It's really cute.
*Raegan's starting to army crawl. She will also crawl a little bit with her hands and feet (not knees), with her butt straight up in the air. She just can't quite coordinate it on her hands and knees yet!
*I mentioned in an earlier post that Raegan LOVES mashed black beans. At my company picnic last night I discovered that she also LOVES avocado. To the point where she was yelling at me for not giving it to her fast enough. Her favorite foods right now are black beans, bananas (always!) and chicken and apples. She also loves feeding herself puffs, which tells me I need to start dicing up soft veggies for her to start on.
*She's doing very well at self soothing to fall asleep for naps and bedtime. I would say maybe once a day, probably once every other day, she gets too tired and she'll scream for maybe five minutes before she falls asleep. She's waking up once, sometimes twice a night, typically around midnight at 5:00-6:00 a.m. Pretty soon I'm going to start working on her being able to self soothe back to sleep without one of the nursings. :)
