This month Cayden officially learned how to crawl, started eating finger foods regularly, and is sleeping through the night every night! Sometimes she wakes up right about the time that we go to bed (11pm) and wants a bottle, but then she's back to sleep until around 7am. Then she wakes up and I give her another bottle, and she will sometimes go back to sleep for a couple of hours.
She needs her two naps a day to be in a good mood, but can still function with just one if she's occupied (not at home).
My aunt gave us some fruit squeeze things, and Cayden loves them. Above you can see her delicate dexterity...she's always touching new, interesting things with her pointer fingers very carefully. She does this to zippers, Douglas' silky edges at bedtime, and any and all new textures she finds.
Here she is with big brother Joe.
And below, with Mallory's toddler, Eden!
Eden wants to be best friends, but all Cayden wants to do is touch Mal's iPhone...
there's the pointer finger again!
Cayden is not sure about this whole kissing thing...
