The little moments

They grow up so quickly.  Seven months has gone, it is time to go back to work, and my little baby is becoming a beautiful little girl.  Every week she does something new that delights us or makes us laugh.  Here are just a few of  her little quirks that I have loved so far:

  • As a newborn, before she gave us real smiles, she would give me a secret little smile just as she fell asleep and came off the breast while breast feeding.
  • At about the three month mark, while on her back she would always have both arms straight up in the air with her hands in fists.
  • At about 4 months she went through a couple of weeks when she would blow angry raspberries when she was not happy.  Just like mini tantrums!Feb_Baby_20110207_20
  • At around 5 months she pouted for a couple of weeks.  Her lower lip couldn’t get any further out! 
  • She likes to raise both her legs high up and then bang them on the floor repeatedly.  From downstairs it sounds like a herd of elephants.  Today she raised them so high she hit herself in the face with her feet!
  • A couple of weeks ago she learnt to consciously open and close her fist.  For a few days she was doing it all the time, watching her own hand in wonder.
  • All smiles and giggles are wonderful, but smiles greeting you from the cot first thing in the morning are especially delicious.

What are the little moments you have loved?

    Strangely those 3 am feedings. Yes they were freaking hard but at the same time it was just us and because I didn’t have to worry about work I was not stressed about it.

    Opps meant to say, sorry to hear you are going back. It’s not going to be easy but it gets easier. Have you started sending you little princess to day care yet? I would recommend start sending her well before you go back so you both can adjust.

      Yes, we’ve had some time together at daycare, and one full day this week on Monday, and she’ll be going in on Thursday as well. So far she seems to be adjusting ok. Might write about it for my next post.

        Glad she is doing well. You hear some horror stories of babies going to day care. I am so grateful my little monkey took to day care like a duck to water!

        Good luck I think your little girl will be fine, otherwise it would have gone pear shaped by now.

    I remember the pout! Gage is 6 months and he still throws the lower lip out but not as much as he did a month or so ago. Your daughter is adorable 🙂
