Maiya and big Bro

I have been slow to post these days... Maiya is getting mobile! So I have to keep an eye on her lest she end up somewhere she shouldn't or get some small toy of Jacob's in her mouth. Everything goes in her mouth! She can't sit up on her own but she can get on all fours and leapfrog to where she wants to go. Or she'll shimmy across the floor to get at a sought after toy of Jacob's. She is a ravenous little baby and eating solids like a hungry bird. I cannot believe how much this child can consume. She will squawk if she sees me eating and she isn't getting any food. Her faves are avocado, smushed beans and rice, applesauce, squash, sweet potoatoes... basically anything you give her she'll eat it. All the baby books say you shouldn't feed solids to a baby until they can sit up on their own blah blah but I think that is bull which is why I don't read baby 'guide' books because I think I know my child better than any doctor or expert. I hate growth charts and development charts. I think they just make a lot of mothers paranoid that their babies aren't up to speed if they don't roll over by this date, potty train by this date blah blah...... Babies develop at their own pace and time. There is no race to the finish line. I am really really enjoying my time right now with the kids. Jacob and Maiya are like two peas in a pod and they can spend twenty minutes together playing quiety. He knows not to give her small toys and when she grabs hold of one of his toys he knows to trade it with one of hers. It is so fun and cute to watch. I am really blessed. xo
