Lila is now eating rice cereal and it is hilarious! She absolutely loves it and gets angry if you don't feed her fast enough. She also likes to "help" guide the spoon into her mouth which makes for a fun mess. We tried oatmeal cereal first but her face got a rash on it so we will hold off for a bit longer on that one. The video below of her first cereal is long so you don't have to watch it all...or any of it. Also, please ignore my "mommy voice." It's kind of annoying.
Lila has also learned to roll over from back to tummy. She has been doing tummy to back for a while now but just started the other way a week or so ago. I used to put her under her play gym but she gets stuck in the netting because she only rolls to her right. I also had to stop putting her under there because she can roll onto the wood floor. Now Lila only rolls in bedrooms where she can go to her hearts content...except when I have to save her from the furniture. She likes to look up every so often to get approval, ie cheering and clapping. She smiles and laughs then continues on her merry way. It's too much fun to watch!
We also got Lila an excersaucer today since she likes to sit up and move around more now. I thought she would love it because it bounces and spins around. Problem is she is not quite big enough for it yet so her feet don't touch making it a little hard to bounce or spin. Oh well, she likes to grab onto the toys surrounding it.
(It's obvious from this video and my massive bun that I haven't gotten around to the cut or dye yet. I hear red hair doesn't take hair dye well and am a little discouraged!)
There are a couple old videos of Lila-one of her rolling from tummy to back and one of her laughing (1.5 mins into the video) posted Dec. 11th because I thought they weren't working and just figured out they don't play until you publish the post. You have to scroll down a ways to see them if you want.
