Phayre is seriously the happiest baby ever. She smiles all the time and is so easy going. Whenever we go out she's smiling at strangers and waving her hands and feet in excitement. She loves to sit and play with toys, but still hates being on her tummy. We're pretty certain she'll never crawl... she has no interest in moving and Sloan pretty much brings her everything she wants. She loves Sloan's toys over her own. She say's "guh" on repeat alllllll day long. "A guh, guh, guhhhhhhh." I'm totally working on her to say mama though ;). She is very ticklish and has a deep belly laugh. When she's really focused on something, she blows these little puffs of air out of her mouth. It's so cute!!! Her thigh rolls just keep getting better and better and I'm obsessed.
She has finally come around to solid food (hooray!!). She eats three meals a day and some snacks (girl never met a puff or mum-mum she didn't like!). We are doing a combination of purees and baby led weaning. I am making all of her baby food and she usually has bites of whatever we're eating. Her favorites are pears and yogurt. Sloan loves taking little bites of her food and feeding Phayre. P went from loathing solid food to being quite the foodie! She gets all excited and whines when she see's someone with food. It's kind of embarrassing when she see's a stranger with food and starts screaming and waving her hands in the air. Buuuut it's also hilarious :).
She's nursing every 3.5-4ish hours now. She goes to sleep at 8pm and wakes up at 6am to nurse, then back to sleep until 8am. She takes two naps a day, wears size three diapers, and size 6-12 month clothing. She has so many nicknames... Phayre Bear, P, PG, Squish, and lately Sloan and I have been calling her "Gee Gee Bagooey" (how random is that?!).
"Mom, I'm done with photos."
I'm just so thankful for this sweet girl! She's such a light in our lives and we feel so lucky that she's all ours. Watching her and Sloan interact is truly magical, it fills me with such joy. I look forward to watching her grow, but (here comes the whiney part) I just want time to slow down! Ya hear that P? Slow down sweet baby girl!!!
