New things

Things Raegan is doing now:

She imitates just about every noise you make, as long as she can figure out how to do it. If you click with your tongue she'll click back at you. If you blow raspberries, she'll blow these GIANT spit bubbles. (That's her favorite noise to make right now). If you stick your tongue out at her, she'll do it right back at ya. And this week, if you say, "Mamamamama" or "Dadadadada" or "Buhbuhbuhbuhbuh" to her (several strings of babbles in a row) Raegan will say it back to you. It's so cool!

Luke also discovered that if you whisper to Raegan, she'll start babbling really quiet, and if you yell, she'll start yelling too. Isn't she just so smart?

Still no crawling, dang it. But she does scooch all over the place (when she's inclined to do so) and she can get up on her hands and knees and rock for a second. She stands holding on to the coffee table, and she's cruised along the coffee table a couple times.

She's starting to eat more solids, but still isn't anywhere near that 3-4 jars a day that her pediatrician said she should be eating. However, I'm not going to shove food down her throat, so she'll do it when she's ready. I say, Raegan's 50th percentile for height and 55th percentile for weight and obviously smart, so she's doing just fine. She still much prefers nursing, although I would say she's up to 1 to 1-1/2 jars a day of baby food. Last night she actually ate some bits of banana flavored puffs and seemed to like them. Or at least, after she ate one and made some faces, she went back for more. That's a first! She'll eat more solids when she's ready. I know she's getting good nutrition since I'm still nursing, so I'm just not worried.

It's so fun to watch your baby grow! Maybe Raegan will skip crawling and go straight to walking! Way to go on still nursing! I totally agree that she will eat when she's ready. Chloe didn't take solids at all till between 7 and 8 months. We tried, but she just wasn't ready. She LOVED nursing too :-) She eats really well now, so I think it's beneficial to follow their lead sometimes. You don't want a fight a few months or years down the road when it comes to food.
