Sadie is fearless. I discovered this inadvertently when I was washing her hair and she moved suddenly and water splashed on her face. She blinked but didn't make a peep.
Lately I've been giving her her bath in her little pink bath tub, inside of Nani's whirlpool tub. The whirlpool tub has a really high water spout and today while she was in her tub I turned it on. Because the water is falling from high up it splashes a lot, but Sadie didn't seem to mind. She kept trying to pull herself towards the water, until I finally pushed her tub over next to it. The water still wasn't going into her tub, but it was just barely missing it. Sadie spent the next ten minutes lifting her arms straight up into the water and letting it run down through her hands and splash in her face. I can't wait to take her to the swimming pool this summer!
Sadie also ate her first cracker today. It was a Mum Mum rice cracker and I was a little nervous about her having it, even though the cracker box indicated that she was old enough. She ate the entire thing and seemed to be quite proud of the accomplishment. She's now had rice, sweet potatoes, peas, apples, pears, peaches, bananas, carrots, prunes, oatmeal, chicken, turkey, beef, squash and pineapple. Her favorites (surprisingly) are sweet potatoes, peas, carrots and squash.* I really expected the fruits to rate higher then the vegetables.
*Nani would like me to add that bananas are actually her very favorite food.
