Blakey crawling

Blake has been able to crawl across the living room and now goes from room to room unaccompanied. I think Cadence would stick to where we were but Blake is into exploring. He’d even rather play than have me hold him.

So far, he kind of hobbles on one leg and doesn’t get on both knees to crawl. He’s already quite fast. Blake crawling

Blakey 7 months

He’s definitely scooting! He hasn’t quite figured out how to use his legs but can move pretty fast. He loves cadence’s bins and can be found digging through them.

He likes carbs (potatoes, breads), eggs, avocados, smoothies/yogurts. He eats and enjoys more people food than Cadence did & is less obsessed with breast milk.

He loves kisses (sometimes lays a slobbery one on me), playing with bags and paper. Started drinking water and enjoys it out of a deli container.

So proud of my girl

Cadence is such a sweet girl. She has great empathy and always looks out for other people. She’s creative. San got her writing stories and she’s really taken to that. her art skills have grown immensely. She’s an inventor. Nicole and I were talking about how Matt is a vampire and Cadence decided that Nicole should do a lie detector test. And she created one for San. She used her colon pillow to make sure she was comfortable and could tell the truth.

Blake – 6 months

Blake is pretty good at sitting up, lunging for toys, and talking nowadays. He loves kisses (neck ones make him laugh) and his sister. His lower tooth is starting to emerge.

Doc says all is good and he should try more food. Blake and Cadence were pretty much the same size!

While Cadence was more even tempered and would be happy being held, sleep anywhere, Blake is more extreme (has a mercurial disposition: very happy to very sad). He’s more physical (always grabbing at things and lunging).
