The baby has been learning all sorts of new things. She shakes her head 'no' and waves her hand 'hello'. She says 'mom' and 'dad' when she would like to get picked up by the respective parent. She pulls herself up on her knees and has pulled herself up to her feet once. She seems to have no desire to put one foot in front of the other - ya. She has an extremely pleasant baby, entertains herself extremely well, is quite social as long as she is in the arms of mom and is a loud talker. She has finally shown an interest in eating solids, although sparingly. She like avocado and carrot and dislikes squash. She is quite fond of her siblings and could watch them all day long.
