33 Weeks

Eleanor is 33 weeks old!

She wasn’t really in the mood to be my model when I took these pictures, and she really didn’t like it when I took away the fun lens cap she had just found, but I have to admit, I kind of love pictures of her crying. So much emotion! So much drama! But everything turned out alright in the end.

This week Eleanor really developed mastery over the pincher grip. She is now a puffs eating machine, working that little thumb and forefinger like a pro. Because of doing Baby Led Weaning she learned to pick up food, hold it, and take little bites off of it rather than putting the entire thing in her mouth, and she tries to do this with puffs even though they are so tiny. It’s pretty much the cutest thing ever to watch her gingerly pick up a little star-shaped puff, bring it to her mouth, and then nibble off one of the points.

This week she also started learning how to wave. We can only get her to wave back about half the time, but it seems like when she is doing it there is that little glimmer of recognition in her eyes. It’s really amazing to watch her learning and making connections.

She is starting to seem so big to us. Some mornings when she wakes up it looks like she's grown a few inches just overnight. And look at that last picture. Our baldy is finally growing some hair!
