Eliana is now 24 weeks old! She seems to be growing leaps and bounds and time just seems to be flying! She is still such a happy baby. She loves her big brother so much and he is sure to get a laugh. Their car seats are beside each other in the car and I catch them holding hands and laughing back there all the time. It is the cutest thing.
Eliana has developed a bit of stranger anxiety within the past week. She wants Mommy and Daddy around and prefers us to hold her. She is still sleeping fairly well. Some nights she only wakes up once but there are other nights she wakes up twice. We are ready for the day where she sleeps through the night, but I really can not complain. She is extremely strong and I know it won't be too long before she is sitting by herself. She is close now but has not quite got it yet. This frustrates her to no end as she wants to get up and go.

This week we started her on rice cereal. She did fairly well for the first time eating rice cereal. She likes the spoon and will pull it to her mouth which helps in getting her to eat the cereal. She does not like the taste of the cereal too much. We are planning on starting Oatmeal soon, which she will probably like much better.

She rolled over for the first time at the end of this week. She rolled over from her stomach to her back, but has yet to roll from her back to her stomach.
