Week and a bit that is.
She cut her 5th tooth on the 10th. BOY was that one a long time coming through, and number six is following close behind.
She's started eating properly. She even crossed the floor to me to get at something I was eating. It's still small, no, tiny, amounts, but she's willing to try most things.
She danced spontaneously. I haven't danced with her much and I hardly ever have music on, liking my silence.... and suddenly her one toy that makes music comes on and she bops along to it. Hilarious. Now she dances when we say the word dance or if music comes on.
It seems she gets car sick, motion sickness ?? Whatever, it's wet, it's projectile, it's a lot, it requires clothes changes, it once came out of her nose, and it just ain't pretty.
She is baby signing 'milk'. Which is fun to see but sorta pointless because I know what she wants anyway. It seems nice for her though, maybe, to have a feeling of being able to communicate something so clearly. What do you think? Not sure what to have her sign next.
Still wakes up a minimum of 4 times a night, usually 6-8 times. So no change there.
She saw her first chickens, goats and ducks. And was thrilled.
She discovered that she has a section of bookshelf for her books. She went from pulling them off and throwing them on the floor to picking them out, sitting, and reading on her own. Very cute.
She said mama. Let me say that again. She said mama.
Actually she's being saying mama for a few months, but it was mamamamamama and I didn't want to go all silly and just put it down to baby babbling. But now that I think back on it I realise that it was only ever said at night before bed when she insists on me. Now she says it to her Mama, Mama book and has said it when making her way over to me. So I'm sure. I don't know why it's so darn beautiful, but it is.
What a couple of weeks! Like a developmental spurt of sorts.
