Mastered Skills: The caveat is he just turned 7 months. But he has learned to pull himself to standing. He can sit and go from sit to crawl (but not the other way), and inchworm crawl. Yesterday I caught my DH trying to teach him how to crawl doggy style, lol. And he has taken blowing raspberries to a whole new level, spraying himself and everyone near him when he decides to practice.
Skills they are working on: Stability standing at the furniture! The other day I saw him lift up one arm and then very deliberately and slowly lift the other, putting it back down when he started losing his balance. He got both hands up, grinned at me, and then grabbed the sofa cushion again for support. But he wants to be hands-free real bad!
Boobies or Bottles: Boobies, plus 3 solid meals a day because his weight curve didn't go up high enough in the last month.
Temperament: Much happier since he started eating more solids. Still not a content baby, though -- he's always frustrated and trying to learn something new.
Mastered Skills: She has been sitting for about 6 weeks now, rolling all over the place, manipulating mom and dad
Skills they are working on: She can occasionally pull herself from sitting to standing but I've only seen her do it a few times. She scoots around on her stomach and gets up on her hands and knees and rocks back and forth but that's as far as she's gotten when it comes to crawling. We do baby led weaning and I've noticed her working on her pincer grasp when she's eating.
Boobies or Bottles: Boobies on demand. Finger foods twice a day.
Mastered Skills: rolls easily any direction and scoots on his back by pushing with feet, sits up easiyl
Skills they are working on: CRAWLING--he rocks back/forth and then flops foward, picks himself up and tries again--he wants it really badly. Also he is trying to master eating from a spoon.
Boobies or Bottles: Still mostly breastfeeding or pumped breast milk, but I feel like my supply is suffering (having a hard time pumping at work ) Also really enjoying 2 cereal/fruit/veggie meals per day
Temperament: Happy boy who loves to laugh and watch his big sister. Fusses when hungry or tired. He is so dang cute!
