Diaper: size 3 & 4
Clothing: 9, 12 month
Likes: going after a toy, rolling, holding/grabbing things, sucking her fingers, tickles, kisses, the kids dropping something in front of her or popping bubble wrap
Dislikes: BOTTLES, squished legs, having her nose wiped, mom walking away (we'll see if this sticks!)
Eating: I was really worried about Anna not being very good at spoon feeding. While she still doesn't prefer it over nursing, I found that if I catch her when she is hungry she is much better at eating from the spoon. Just knowing she can do it is a huge weight off our minds! She has had rice and oatmeal cereal, sweet potatoes, squash, and prunes. Lots of prunes per the doctors order, as she tends to stay pretty backed up. We also give her puffs and she is just starting to figure out that she can swallow them. Most of the month if she got one in her mouth she would spit it right back out!
Sleep: We did much better the past month! Anna slept through the night for about two weeks straight and then started waking again. I suspected an ear infection, but the doctor gave her a clean bill of health. The past couple of nights she has slept through again and hopefully we are back on track!
Routine: An ideal day-
7:30 First feeding of the day
4:00 Nap (sometimes- usually a shorter one)
7:00 Down for bed
9:00-10:00 Nurse and back to bed for the night <--- we don't seem to be able to kick the dream feed
Physically: Anna is soooo giggly this month and we are having such fun making her laugh. She doesn't get much peace during the day! Her eyes are beginning to get a hazel ring around the middle, so this may be the last month of our blue eyed baby. Time will tell! She is rolling, spinning, scooting, sliding and using all available means of slowly maneuvering around a space. She currently loves to have something in her hands, but what she's holding doesn't go instantly to her mouth. Her fingers, on the other hand, are often in her mouth. We have named her preferred sucked position "hook 'em horns." She is holding steady at 2 bottom teeth with nothing else currently peeking through. (But for the record, both Lydia and Sarah have molars breaking through!) Sitting up is going well, but I'm not confident enough to leave her unsupported.
Communication: She is saying "dadadadada" and starting to wave goodbye.
Next appointment: March 29, 2017 10:45am
I had almost as many videos as pictures this month- evidence that she is becoming more active!
