This was another good week overall. There was a bit of fussiness, which coincides with Wonder Weeks for her adjusted age. This is a time when they say baby starts to realize mommy can walk out of the room and leave baby behind and might be slightly fussy. We had some of that this week, but nothing bad.
Things are still good in the nursing department.
McKenna slept well all week long. She is getting even better about moving around now that she is in footed pajamas instead of the sleep sack. When she is awake and playing, she will roll to get from point A to point B, which I find quite funny.

I didn’t introduce any new foods this week. I did make a bunch of prunes, though. Prunes are not as easy as I thought they would be. I first tried them in my inexpensive little mini-mixer, but it didn’t do a good job of mixing it up, so I moved on to the Cuisinart. It does a great job (but is a lot more of a clean-up, so I avoid using it when I can). I also didn’t add enough water, which I didn’t realize until they didn’t freeze solid. Despite that, she likes them, and making them is a lot cheaper than buying them.

She is getting better and better about eating finger foods. She does a nice chewing motion. My head is telling me to let her have more real finger foods (as opposed to the kind that dissolve by Gerber), but I am just cautious. I think once she is 8 months old, I will be a little more daring. 8 months just sounds older. But in my head, she is still 6 months old :).
I haven’t been great about being consistent with the sippy cup with her. This week, I started giving it each day, and she got really good at it! I also used a different cup because I couldn’t find the one I usually use. I used an Avent Sippy Cup. This is the kind Brayden learned on, as well. She seems to prefer it. Either that or she coincidentally started getting better at the same time she started using the Avent sippy.
