It seems the six month mark has offered Anna all kinds of new experiences, markedly blowing raspberries and having her first tastes of rice cereal. She's also gotten a lot better at standing up with support and gets this look on her face like "look at me how big I am!" Her newest sound is "ba ba ba ba." I love the wonder of all those little accomplishments that happen from month to month in the first year of a baby's life. It's quite amazing, actually, to think of all that's learned in the passing of a single year.
She's quite amused by blowing raspberries. It's a wonder her lips don't stay numb because when she gets started, she sometimes continues for 15 to 20 minutes at a time. She acts likes she's having so much fun.
Up until two nights ago, her soul nourishment had been breast milk, but the time had come for her to begin learning to eat from a spoon. Benjamin, Catherine and Mary Scott were so excited! Anna wasn't so sure. Over all I'd say it was successful. She seemed somewhat receptive to the rice cereal but the first try didn't go without a few protests. Of course, she entertained us with some very interesting faces and sounds. Catherine took a little video of Anna eating her cereal for the first time.
