It’s been a while since I did the last review of baby girl, in fact that was her 9 month review. Later on I will let you know how we got on at the health visitor.
But first we come a long way since she was 9 months old in terms of her development. The biggest thing I’m so excited to share with you that I have to blurt out first is that she took her first few steps unaided!!! In New Years Eve as well!!! A fantastic start to 2017!!!!
She had been building up to it for a few weeks. Cruising along the sofas gaining confidence all the time. I was sitting on the sofa opposite to my husband and she wanted to come over to me I could see it! So instead of holding on to everything to get to me she had her little arms out for balance and took those precious first 3 steps all by her self. We were so proud and so excited that both of us got to see her do it for the first time.
As each day goes past now she really is gaining her confidence and is finding herself that I know in no-time she will be running around.
So now I have a toddler!!
The word that sums up my week is Fussy. I have one little fussy 14 week old baby on my hands this week. Bless her she doesn’t cry just fusses. Her bottom lip comes out and it’s so cute.
She has begun her teething journey. We have been going through numerous bibs a day covered in drool. She chews like crazy on her hands and Sophie the Teething Giraffe. She is just little miss fussy pants this week. We have been having lots of cuddles so I haven’t been able to get a lot done at all this week.
Also this week has been a complete turnaround for baby girls sleep pattern. We have been having 6-7 hours sleep for a few weeks. It’s been glorious for me! But now fussy baby girl has been waking at least 3x a night. Like I said before she doesn’t cry, just makes her fussy noises. I pick her up and give her a little dream feed and off she goes back to sleep again. It’s very tiring and draining.
A few weeks back I heard about an app called The Wonder Weeks and it tells you when your baby is going through her mental development and growth leaps. Baby girl is in one of her leaps now so that explains her fussiness. She is in leap 4 at the moment where the little red baby head is shown in the picture below, and lasts for another 23 days!. This leap is known as the World of Events.
After this leap she will be able to perceive smooth transitions with her senses. Like grasping with her hands. This is completely correct as she picked my glasses off my face yesterday and threw them on the floor! She has also started to react to her name and is always looking to see where her dad or I am. These are all new developments.
So there you have the one word that sums up my week – Fussy.
I hope you have all had a better week than me!
Have a great weekend.
