Riley has been feeding herself like a champ recently. This past couple of weeks, we've been introducing finger foods like bananas, green beans, graham crackers (which she's been eating for months now really) and corn puffs. The corn puffs are gerber graduates snacks and they come in a ton of different flavors and shapes. Her favorite right now is a gerber snack that has a ranch flavor to it. It's called dipped veggies and even mom likes it!
Peanut's getting better at sitting on her own. I can now set her down on the floor with some toys and she's happy playing by herself for a few minutes. I do have to make sure she's isn't in a position where she could fall and land on something. She's already smacked her head on the foot of her jumper. That went over real well!
She isn't crawling yet, but she is getting better at pushing up off the floor. Earlier today I could have sworn she was so far off the ground that her weight was actually on her knees, but it was hard to tell and lasted a split second. Mostly, she waves her arms around like she's swimming and lifts her chest up high. It has to be the best work out the child has ever gotten. I can't imagine putting my body into that position for any amount of time!
Christmas is around the corner and we can't wait to be with our families. The Kaden's are coming for a short visit next Sunday/Monday. After that, we're off to Richmond next Tuesday for the rest of the week. It will be a whirlwind holiday, but we are so excited to share it with Peanut! In the spirit of the holidays, I leave you with this:
