Solid food, rolling, growth, oh my!

I swear that we returned with a completely different baby than the one we left with for vacation. Aside from Cameron's sweet disposition and ongoing refusal to nap at daycare, that is. Even her daycare commented on how much she changed in two weeks. In the past three days we have moved her car seat straps up, seen her rotate around in her exersaucer on her own, roll over (both directions!), and be really introduced solid food. Phew! It's been a whirlwind. And she is very close to sitting up on her own.

Apparently Cameron had a really big growth spurt while on vacation. I didn't notice because I was doing a lot more breastfeeding and started taking Reglan (woo hoo for drugs!) to increase my milk supply. Now Cameron looks absolutely chubby and has probably doubled the amount of hair on her head. As DH commented, "It's like she is a real person!"

I decided to let daycare do a lot of the heavy lifting with teaching Cameron how to eat. She gets rice cereal for breakfast and rice cereal plus some other food (sweet potatoes and pears for now) for lunch. I just introduced dinner (also rice plus other) with the hope of cutting out one of her bottles (she's still eating off me or bottles 7x a day). I can hardly believe that after only two days of solid food at daycare she already can scarf down the dinner I'm feeding her. Amazing! She cutely sticks out her tongue when preparing for another bite of food.

What do you think? Does she look chubbier and/or bigger to you?And look at that full head of hair! Cameron still has a small bald spot on the back of her head but I'm sure that will disappear once she starts sitting up on her own.
