Watching kids grow is so fascinating. Noelle is now almost 7 months old, and she looks as if she's ready to start running around. I know it will be a few more months before she'll be ready to make first attempts to walk. However, even now she can pull herself up. If I hold her and let her "walk", she knows exactly where she wants to go, and why she wants to go there.
Few days ago, we had family outing to In-n-Out. Noelle was sitting in my wife's lap. Each time my wife took a french fry, Noelle would open her mouth and reach for the french fry. As if she was thinking "this one must be for me". It was so cute. At home, when we try to feed her any solid food, it would be everywhere except in her mouth. But there's a trick. Put it on plastic spoon, or let it get on hers fingers, and the food would magically end up in her mouth. With a big smile. Look, I'm eating, all by myself.
