(I apologize for the oversharing this week, but I think we’re finally caught up!)
We have an army crawler on our hands! I was at my mom’s house when the baby scooted herself towards me on her elbows. It was the first time either of us had seen her do that.
There was one night I forgot to put her amber anklet back on and we did not sleep that night. I think we both went to sleep after 2 a.m. and I was up at 5:30. I didn’t realize until almost 7 that her ankle bracelet was not on her ankle. I have not made that mistake again and sleep has somewhat evened out for us. One of her top front (middle) teeth has finally started to cut through, so we’re up to 5 teeth!
She tells me “hi” when I say “bye” to her. She is starting to learn the signs for “more” and “all done.” Milk is very easy for her. And she loves to clap her hands when she says “yay!”
We went on a short hike this past weekend, and she enjoyed being outside (though it really messed with her nap. That was tough.)
At church, she’s one of the easier babies in the worship care. My husband refers to her as the “buffer baby.” They don’t have to do too much to keep her happy.
She’s getting a lot easier to manage in the evenings. The witching hour isn’t as rough, and she can play in the floor for longer periods while we focus on dinner and prepping her food. She still loves eating, and she doesn’t really refuse anything (yet.)
When she wakes, she likes to play in her crib and yell “hi!” and it would be super cute if it wasn’t 3 a.m. when she did this. (She also does this during the day.)
