Remember that teeny tiny parcel we brought home…
Well here she is now…
Of course all this growing doesn’t happen without a LOT of feeding! It is DEMANDING at the moment but seeing our precious teeny tiny bub grow into such a strong healthy little girl is making it all worthwhile. There is nothing a mother wants more than a thriving baby.
This last month MissE has kept me on my toes with a couple of wonder weeks, a growth spurt (she literally fed hourly during the day for 2 days!) and of course the arrival of lots of drool so no doubt our teething journey will kick off before we know it
But all of those challenges have been balanced with amazing development and new skills… Rolling over, grasping things and of course that massive jump in interaction. All things that we are thoroughly enjoying!
We are also getting a clearer picture of MissE’s personality and it looks like we have another happy and CHEEKY little monkey on our hands! As a newborn MissE was SOOOO chilled – the polar opposite of Little A. But as the weeks went on she must have realised she would need to step it up to compete with Little A. Now we have TWO uhhhh “Expressive” little people in our house!!!!!
Suffice to say she has us wrapped around her little finger!
As much as I don’t want MissE to grow up too quick … I can NOT wait until the moment she sits independently with her brother for playtime! The growing interaction between them absolutely melts me…
According to Little A, MissE is the COOLEST person in the house and he will do ANYTHING for her. If he wont do something for us he WILL do it for MissE. So sometimes we play the “E card” … whatever works right?!?!
Sleep-wise MissE is a lot like her brother – An angel at night and a cat napper during the day. Once she is down for the night (usually 8pm – she takes a bit to settle) she will then sleep through pretty much till morning. Sometimes she will wake between 4am-5am for a feed but not often. But even though I am not sleep deprived I am still EXHAUSTED. MissE’s amazing nights do make the days much more demanding. With no night feeds she fits all her feeds into the day! Add in a growth spurt or wonder week and I have had some CRAZY days of feeding, feeding and well more feeding.
MissE is a much more cuddlier bub than Little A. She loves to be held and hanging out in the carrier. At this age Little A demanded attention and stimulation. MissE on the other hand is happy to sit back and watch as long as she is on my lap or in my arms.
As you can imagine life is a little busy at the moment with these two munchkins but I will try and do a training update and some of the promised posts soon.
I am very excited about the new direction I am taking with my training and I can’t wait to share it…but for now back to the crazy schedule that is mummyhood!
