7.4 – 7.5 kilos.


Not measured.


9 teeth: 5 bottom teeth (3 incisors and 2 canines) and 4 upper teeth (4 incisors).  Sorry I made a mistake last month about the number of teeth on the top and bottom.

Motor Skills

  • Emma is beginning to balance herself and reach for places to “walk” to.  She is not confident to take unsupported steps yet, but I know it will only be a matter of time before that happens.
  • Likes to make big splashes in the bath tub.
  • Likes to move to music and dance.

Communication and Social Skills

  • Loves to hold the Astro remote and pretend to change the channels.
  • Will resist and protest when we try to take her somewhere she doesn’t want to go, or get her to do something she doesn’t want to do, or take something she is holding away from her.
  • Says a few words: “ba-book” (for “book”), “ba-boh” (for “ball”), “deh-doh” (no idea what this is yet).

Food and Feeding

Most of her diet still consists of Mommy’s milk but she is showing an increasingly keen interest in the food and drinks we take.

Some of the foods she has tried this month:

  • Orange
  • Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (I used EVCO when I made Emma some muffin tots with pumpkin and carrots and she loved them!)
  • Lotus Root (in the form of Lotus Root Soup)
  • Beetroot (from Beetroot Soup; I served her beetroot soup with steamed rice)
  • Red dates (from soups)
  • Blueberries
  • Tilapia
  • Spaghetti (Gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, egg-free)
  • Ground beef (tried again, this time in an organic pasta sauce)
