ahhh progress, you sweet thing

Ola started trying to self feed a little bit ago, but I thought today maybe I would grab the camera. 

We have made big progress in the food department lately. Going from formula and cereal (mixed with amounts of very smooth and runny fruits and veggies) to bowls of little noodles in pasta sauce, pieces of grapes, smashed avocado, banana in her little chewy bag thing, and bits and pieces of whatever we are eating at the time. She has tried chicken, ham, ice cream, whipped cream, crackers and I am sure there are more but I can't think of any right now. I try to give her anything we are eating so she is exposed to everything that we eat. Knock on wood, but I think we have avoided the dreaded texture issues!

Ola also gives high fives! Getting one is awesome, it instantly makes you smile!

She is now also saying DaDa, and I know she is because she says it loud and proud just to Mark when she sees him. With him travelling so much it is so nice to see him get such a warm welcome home.

She is starting to do different things each day, but don't get it twisted, this girl will do anything for her bottle!
