Growing and Learning

Here are some photos we took of her for no particular reason.

Big news - Caitlin has finally begun to find her hands. She's now grabbing at things and realizing that she can interact with her world. We took a few shots of her grabbing at the toys on her bouncy chair and playing with her rattle. She's much more alert now and making a lot more noises. We also think she may be teething; she is drooling much more, likes to have her gums massaged, is much more fussy recently, and has the "ridge" on her gums where the teeth will come out. A bit early, but that's what it looks like is happening. Anyway, we're going to have to record her again (video and audio) and post it for people to see.

Caitlin is also developing quite a temper - wonder where she got that from? (Hint: It's a Rowand thing. :-) So, we've snapped a couple of shots of her screaming and being generally demanding. We're so saving these for her future boyfriends. :-) She does smile a lot more though (see below) - she's being much more expressive about her feelings these days.

She's begun eating rice cereal mixed with white grape juice - check out the resulting drooly mess in the photos below. Also, she has decided to be like her Daddy - if you put a camera in front of her and she notices it, you get some wonderfully blank expressions from her... You do get some good ones every now and then, though.

Caitlin has now begun to eat other solid foods - she hates green beans - and is doing pretty well. She likes applesauce and sweet potatoes quite a bit. She's also sitting up somewhat - though she still needs to be supported a bit. But, it's high-chair time already! She's also developed a real fascination with her right hand recently - she can sit still and just move her hand around and stares at it for quite some time before she gets bored.

We took Caitlin on an outing to the Pacific Science Center. Actually, the rest of us went there, and we just carried her along. still, she enjoyed it and was having a good bit of fun when she wasn't catching a nap in her stroller. We also shot some photos of the various Caitlin Carriers that helped lug her around. :-) Yeah. some of the pictures are dark, but you can see them and they're still pretty good.

More photos of nothing in particular and some of my mom and dad's visit out here.

More photos - she's sort of learned how to roll over and is really grabbing stuff now. She is also well into the baby talk/babbling phase of things and experimenting with different sounds she can make. It drives Deb crazy all day, but it really is pretty cool to watch and listen to her - just not for 8 hours straight. :-)

Just a couple photos because I promised.  Auntie Cindy gave Caitlin this cute little outfit.  It didn't fit her until she was 6 month old.  But she can wear it now. Here's the pictures.

 

She's now sitting up, so that's a big change. Combine that with the rolling over and she can move about a bit, but she can't get into a sitting position on her own quite yet. She has figured out a bunch of small things and is really getting good at grabbing toys and playing with them to make noise, get them into her mouth, and other fun baby-like things.
