Little Emi's half birthday

Dear Maya and Emi,

It's been a little while since the last post, but that flu really threw mommy for a loop. Now that I'm finally better we're trying to get back on track with a lot of things that fell by the wayside: Maya's vegetable consumption, Emi's tummy time, and less screen time for everyone!

Emi, you turned 6 months yesterday. Happy half birthday! Today was your checkup with the doctor and overall you had a clean bill of health, but our one concern is that you lost a little weight. Maya lost a few ounces at about the same age, too, so mommy is confident that we'll get past this.

The other day you had your first taste of solid food, and boy, did you love it! Mommy wasn't entirely sure what to do about the baby-led feeding idea the pediatrician mentioned. When you repeatedly took the spoon out of our hands to get the avocado in your mouth as fast as you possibly could, we realized it will work out just fine. Today you had some banana and acted the same way. Hopefully your gusto will carry over into nursing and you'll gain some weight soon!

Maya, you've been loving "school" with mommy and practicing your letters, but when we ask you to try to sound out a word you usually clam right up. The other day I was arranging your bath letters and found that you had memorized the word "cat," but when mommy switched the "t" out for an "r" and asked what the new word was, you answered "mouse." You are so funny! Mommy has a feeling you are just doubting yourself and once you decide to, you'll be reading like crazy. No pressure, though!

Well, mommy is going to get some rest now. Love you both!
