This little lady turned 3/4 of a year old last week! She is such a little ham these days...she smiles and scrunches her nose at people out in public and even WAVES hi and bye to really get them wrapped around her finger! Its fun to see her personality starting to emerge more and more. I have a very strong feeling she is going to be hard headed like her mama and a social butterfly like her papa. Her other tricks... she can stand pretty independently, but doesn't have the strength/coordination to fully pull herself from sitting to standing. She is also still working on crawling. She can push off from sitting but then flops on her belly instead of staying up on her hands and knees. She'll learn eventually! One of her favorite things is to give kisses...she wraps her chubby little arms around your neck and smacks a big, wet, open-mouthed kiss on ya...it is SO good! I love it.
She continues to be a phenomenal eater which is awesome, but I'm already seeing my milk supply dwindle which is sort of bittersweet. Hopefully she'll keep wanting to nurse alongside all the food! She eats most anything we put in front of her...lately she's tried garbonzo beans which she loves, but that make sense because she is a hummus fiend. Still digs yogurt and fruit. Eggs - her new favorite breakfast. She could probably eat two scrambled eggs on her own if I gave her that much! She just picks each piece up and right into the mouth it goes!
Sleep has been our biggest issue with this lady lately. We decided it is high time she sleep through the night. Sleep training began and has gone relatively well. She has regressed a few times and we had to move her wake up time up to 5am because she just can't seem to make it all the way until 6am without losing it. We used the books by The Sleep Lady and the No Cry Sleep Solution to help us with her sleep issues. The past few nights she's slept from 8pm to 5am...not too shabby for a baby who used to sleep right next to me and nurse all night! Oh...and she's in the crib for sleep and naps these days... freedom for mama and papa!!
Think that's it, but here are some out takes to make your day...
a little tantrum..."hold me mama"
