Ella eating real food

Okay, no table food yet other than the usual mushy banana, avacado and smashed black beans/refried beans, tofu, etc. But last night, while we heated up the bottle, I warmed up some sweet potato baby food and I was so proud of how she ate. She opened her mouth for the spoon, made the chewing motions like she was moving it around in her mouth before swallowing, cried when I wasn’t feeding her fast enough and ate the entire container plus a few ounces of milk. Whew! What a switch from just the other day when she was closed mouthed after just one nibble of food. Now if she could just start eating the other flavors that way–no baby Ella, I won’t force chicken baby food on you just yet. We’ll wait a few months for that.

On July 25th, Bella had her kindergarten assessment with the doctor. There were no shots (none again til she’s 11, whew!) and her blood pressure was 80/46, pulse was 100, height 3’9″, 41lb 6.4oz, 14.37 kg BMI. We took her to get her eyes examined a few weeks ago and they checked out great-and she’s near sighted like her mom and dad.
