 Physical achievements:  sitting, rolling, crawling, pulling up on objects, standing, walking along furniture.
Words: "Dada", "Mum" (YAY!), "Baba" (bottle)
Fine motor development: Harrison is beginning to use the pincer grasp and  has started self-feeding.

New Foods: This month we introduced rice wafers, rice cakes and veggie crunches. He also has learned to enjoy small pieces of watermelon.  Expanding his diet past baby food and bottles to include more finger-foods is a goal for this next month.

Favorites: Walks in his stroller around the parks, playing with the cat (aka trying to pull the cat's fur out), Swimming, bath time, and Little Einsteins.

Dislikes: Diaper changes, changing clothes, anything that requires being restrained or contained in a small area.
