Amani is quickly approaching 6 months which as we all know will signal the start of solids! Sure we’re over a month away from that milestone, but I can’t help but think about it from now. She’s been so different from her sisters so I know that everything I thought I knew and have done with my previous daughters, will not be what goes down with Amani. Challenge accepted! What I do know is that she’ll need bibs, lots and lots of bibs. These two pack bib sets from Disney Store are so cute! I can’t wait to start accessorizing meal time with these adorable bibs.
If there’s anything you should know about Amani — besides the fact that she’s the sweetest little thing ever — it’s that she hates her car seat. My little girl is simply not a fan. While her sisters would happily and comfortably nap in it while we were out running errands, Miss Amani wants no part of it. She would much rather be in my arms or worn in a baby carrier. I certainly don’t mind having her close by, but somehow, I’m still not used to the being less efficient while baby wearing. Then one day, I found myself in the grocery store alone with her and couldn’t believe what she did.
Anytime we go out to eat, friends, family, waiters, and even complete strangers will turn to us and say, “He’s so good!” gesturing to our 16-month old. Sometimes I think a well-behaved toddler in a restaurant must be a rare thing indeed given the amount of times we hear this compliment given to us!
There’s really only one thing we do that has basically ensured that Judah will not only behave well, but enjoy himself at the same time. Here’s our secret to his fabulous behavior.
We moved over the summer forcing us to find a new pediatrician. Macks’ six month appointment was his first appointment with our new pediatrician. Everything looked to be going okay until we took him on the scale and it looked as if he had lost some weight from his five month check-up. Because it was a completely different scale from our old pediatrician, the doctor suggested that we come back in a month for a weight check.
He did it! Wyatt took his first steps this weekend! To say it was a surprise is a bit of an understatement. It was only a week or so ago when he first decided he would attempt to take an unsupported step or two. After a few tries of not making it too far he wasn’t interested in much more.
But then it happened…
