1. Baby can feed herself with a spoon! I’m not sure how much Malia is actually eating, because Malia makes a huge mess, but hey, Malia is having a blast.
2. Baby has started teething. I don’t see any teeth yet, but Malia is drooling and chewing on everything and seems a lot more irritable than usual. I know this could last a while, so I’m stocking up on teething toys, cold washcloths, and patience!
3. Baby understands me! Malia recognizes her name and can sometimes follows simple commands like “yes” and “no.”
