Changes in appearance:

She’s doing so well on weight! No teeth coming through yet. Her hair is such a lovely shade of red and her eyes are blue! She has such a sweet smile.

Likes:

Peekaboo! Blocks on the floor!

Singing to her, making goofy faces at her. She likes looking at herself in the mirror.When we chomp on her belly, tickling her toes and feet, dancing. Spinning around in circles, ‘ooga boogah’ noises. Mock sneezes. Dancing. Going outside.When we grab her belly/chest and shake gently and make giggle noises. Tongue clicking noises, Running water, Watching the dogs play fetch or fighting, Laughing at herself in the mirror, Fart noises on her feet and tummy, Waking up in the morning to a smiling face, Being faced outwards, Looking at herself in the mirror, Sam’s voice and weird noises, Being whispered to, She still likes being swaddled a night, Loves her paci, Fart noises, the “ZZZ” sound as in Zipper or in me singing “Zippity Do Dah,” Looking out the front door at the rain and at cars passing by, Being around people and being held close, Sitting with me at the piano and listening to me sing and play, Chewing on her hands, Being bounced on the stability ball, Bathtime and warm water, Watching Pax and Ash play, Bicycle legs, Whistling noises (Sam has to do those…I can’t whistle)

Dislikes:

Blowing in the face.

She doesn’t like it when Ash howls and she doesn’t like it when I play my cello or guitar loudly (perhaps because it makes the dog howl?) She is slowly starting to get antsy when we do slow airplane with her, She doesn’t like being stationary too long, Being set down when she doesn’t want to be (she prefers to be in our arms or in our laps), Laying on her back when she doesn’t want to be, even for diaper changes, Being parted from her pacifier, Air being blown in her face, Tummy time for more than a few minutes

New Milestones/Developments

She sits up on her own most of the day. We play with blocks and she grabs them with her forefingers. She is starting to bang toys on the ground. Everything goes into the mouth now!

Worries with Milestones/Developments:

Working on her showing interest in more toys and being okay with us leaving her for a few minutes (like in the bouncer).

Sleeping Habits:

We decided to start putting her to bed later (9pm) and she sleeps through the entire night. She wakes around 6 to eat and then again around 730 for the day. She naps a few times!

Eating Habits:

6 ounces every few hours.

Thoughts about the past week:

I am in awe of how much my little one is growing. She is sitting up so well on her own. She giggles and laughs so much!

One of my favorite things about this last week was when I was putting her down for bed a few nights ago. We were laying on the bed and she was on her tummy makin’ all sorts of grumpy noises. I started to tell her just how much daddy and I love her. I described how far we would travel (to the moon) and how (on jet packs, of course…going ZOOM ZOOM). She was enraptured and even smiled throughout my story, just staring up at me. I just love storytime and how animated I get is apparently her favorite thing.
