Wren turned a half year old on Tuesday, and I brought her to the pediatrician where she received her shots and otherwise had a good visit. The doctor wanted to know what she was eating, and I listed all of the foods I’ve puréed for her (green beans, carrots, sweet peas, and yams) plus the yoghurt and rice cereal. He said I should introduce her to a sippy cup, and that’s when I got confused. She’s only six months old. I asked, “What do I put in it? Juice, formula?” “Water,” he replied. He also suggested I give her real solid food.
I’ve been reading about how to get her to sleep through the night, about when to start potty training, about encouraging her to crawl, etc. Somehow I missed the part where one introduces real solid food to a baby.
So, with my neighbour’s help and reassurance, I bought some puffs and rusks. All I can say is that Wren loves them! The rusks are packaged by the pair. When she was done with the first one, she was reaching for the second and took it out of the package herself. Okey chuckled and said, “Our daughter is a genius.”
I had to take one more laundry basket photo since our little girl is growing up so fast. I doubt that she will fit in the basket next week.
Oh, have I told you that she’s crawling?
