This week has been one of several firsts for Charlotte.
First first, she had the flu. Poor girl was her sweet happy self the whole time, but we ended up washing just about every blanket and pair of pajamas and burp cloths we own before she was feeling better. Then the rest of us got it, except for Porter, who must have great antibodies, because it was a doozy of a stomach bug. We are SO grateful to all be feeling better now.
Second first, she learned to sit up on her own. I don't think we had even really tried it before yesterday, and she took to it like a champ.
Third first, since she is sitting up we pulled out the highchair for her to sit in the for first time.
She loved watching the boys playing Hungry Hungry Hippos. )
Fourth first, eating food. Porter and Gabe and I made some pumpkin bread yesterday and she seemed interested so I gave her a crumb as her first official food. She promptly spit it back up again a few minutes later onto Adam. Today she got her first bites of rice cereal.
She liked sucking it in, but it will still take her a while to get the hang of swallowing it.
