Adventures of the Little Bean

More firsts

with 3 comments

The past couple weeks have been full of firsts.  Kai has started drooling like crazy, and rubbing her gums with her fingers.  We don’t feel any teeth yet, but they’re coming…  Teething tablets have helped with the pain, teethers keep her occupied and we’re going to get some breastmilk icecubes ready.

She has started to sit up on her own, for a minute or two.  She can gracefully fall to the side or to the front, but we don’t let her fall backwards!  Sitting up means that she can sit in her high chair at the table with us, so we’re getting rid of the swing and bouncy seat…gotta make space since we have a small house.  We’re going to spend some time (and money) at IKEA this weekend – it’s time to get things away from the floor and into bins or higher shelves.  Kai can scoot on her back now, and Mrs Bean found her under the coffee table the other day, pulling down papers.

I'm a big girl now!

Other firsts – Mrs Bean took Kai to the local pool for her first swim.  I’m sorry to have missed it, but I’m sure the next visit will be much like her first – she looked around in astonishment, then gave the world a giant smile and proceeded to flap flap flap her arms.

Kai went to her first Passover seder, and seemed to listen attentively to the stories.  It was an abbreviated seder – we were home by 9pm, and did NOT drink 4 glasses of wine.

Someday I will be able to eat this

Kai has also started ogling our food.  She’ll watch the spoon or fork go from the food to Mrs Bean’s mouth, and she’ll sometimes reach for it.  She’ll also open her mouth when I open my mouth while eating cereal.  I think she’s going to really enjoy eating food, and I can’t wait to take her on food adventures – the trailers and carts of Austin need to watch out – there is a cute and hungry baby preparing to unleash herself on them!

  2. Has th bean started on solids yet? I highly recommend one of those Fisher Price portable boosters. Just leave it in your trunk and she can go eat with you everywhere!

  3. No solids yet. Mrs Bean is dreading that day, she’s feeling like time is passing too quickly! I think we might start in a couple weeks, though.
