Someone asked me how old Elinor is the other day and I said 6 months. It didn't even hit me I was wrong until the next day. She is now on the move! I go into the kitchen and all of a sudden there is a little head peeking around the corner at me. She is also pulling herself up on everything. She always lets go while standing and is pretty good at balancing. Sometimes she falls to her bottom and acts like she is hurt but if you ignore she just pulls up again just as happy as before. I think we reacted too quickly when she would fall back from sitting so she expects us to run to her when falling.
Elinor has finally slept through the night a couple of times! The first time I woke up so confused and then worried something happened to her. To fall asleep lately she plays with my hair while eating. Which turns into pulling my hair out. She also started playing with her own hair since it is long enough to get ahold of now. She still takes about 3 naps a day. The one in the middle of the day is tiny but she rarely doesn't take it.
She went through a couple of days where she didn't want to eat much solid food but now she is back on track eating 3 meals a day. I'm always surprised at what she likes. We had spaghetti squash casserole the other day and she inhaled it. Same with anytime we have had quinoa. For dinner tonight I gave her a whole peach and she ate almost all of it!
This huge personality is starting to come out of this little baby lately. She is so silly. When Dave comes home from work she starts going frantic giggling and hiding her face in my shoulder. She will peek out at him waiting for him to come get her and giggle hiding again. She sits and plays with toys now and is back into reading books. I love when you read to her and she starts to reach to turn the page.
this is Dave's favorite picture of her. He kept looking at it and laughing so hard
I forget why she started to fuss but it was fake and lasted 2 seconds
