Sleep is still a very prized commodity in the Z household, with Enya now waking us all up because she is hungry. She is now drinking on average 50mls more a day than Ciara (WTF!!!). Hopefully we will see the results of this when we weigh them again on Monday. I have to really hold myself back from weighing her everyday now that we have a scale in the house, it's not even as though I'd be undressing her just to weigh her as we have to do the Vojta exercises in the buff (them not me!).
We have started on meat as well with the solids- they have had chicken twice. The first time they were not at all sure about it, but the second time I disguised it better with apricot and tomato and they loved it. Infact it was so good I'm adapting it for a grownup dinner tonight :-). I highly recommend the book: Annabel Karmel's New Complete Baby and Toddler Meal Planner- the recipes are easy and the meal plans are also a great help when you feel like you are just fumbling through the whole intro to solids scene. I've pretty much done everything by this book although I'm starting to branch out this week. We have introduced meat sooner than described in the book as we need to get Ciara off her supplemental iron before she explodes. Constipation reigns here!
