Skylar definitely inherited one thing from her mama: a hearty appetite. She has eaten her way to the top of the growth charts, weighing in at an impressive 17+ pounds and measuring 27 inches long at her recent five-month checkup. The doctor took one look at her and said, “Yup! This butterball is ready for solid foods!”
Some butterballs, er… I mean, babies have a hard time transitioning to solids, but not Miss Skye…! I’m proud to report she took to her new diet right away.
First we introduced protein-fortified baby toes. Skye enjoys them so much, she’s always going back for seconds. And thirds.
Skye experienced no digestive problems after devouring the popular baby book and doctor-recommended snack, Good Morning, Good Night! Mmmmm.
Unfortunately, our venture into rice cereal wasn’t quite as successful, as it went everywhere EXCEPT in her mouth. Oh well. Skye can always supplement it with another one of her favorites: a delicious mouthful of my hair.
Miss Skye hungrily eyes the few remaining hairs on her mother’s head.
