This little monkey is 6.5 months old now!
He's getting so much more interactive, he "talks" a ton, and he's always smiling. He's grabbing for e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g., including Ella's face and hair, but she just laughs...we'll see how long that lasts when he gets her toys!
We are feeding him lots more solids now. He LOVES oatmeal cereal (which Ella wasn't a big fan of), but unfortunately, he doesn't seem to like anything green. Ella would eat any baby food you put in front of her, and I think peas & green beans were her favorite. Everett likes sweet potatoes, but if you give him anything green, he'll push it all out of his mouth. :( I'm now trying to put a little bit in his sweet potatoes.
I honestly thought all babies just ate whatever you gave them since Ella easily ate anything. I know they get picky with table food, but pureed veggies? Really? Ella still loves green beans and broccoli, and I'm bummed because I think this is an indication that Everett will not be a veggie kid like Ella. Most of my friends that had finicky babies that didn't like veggies say their kids still won't eat them. Blah.
He starts at Ella's school on Tuesday! I can't wait!!
