AGE: 10.5 months
Amelie has been very tired this week. She’s been going down easy for bed time, her naps have been substantial and when she wakes, she’s not up for very long before rubbing her eyes signaling to us that she is ready to sleep again. This follows a week of clinginess, irritability, rough naps, hard fought bedtime routines, and not sleeping very well through the night. She must be going through a growth spurt.
Making noises: Her big sound experiment used to be a throaty gasping sound and then it moved to an open mouth hiss. It’s so funny. She also does the usual (ADORABLE) baby babbles indiscriminately: baba, dada, mummum.
I’ve given up on breastfeeding and pumping completely. I was sad at first but now I accept it. It gives me a lot more freedom and I’m trying to enjoy it. But whoa, formula is so expensive!
She pulls herself to standing now and she keeps very busy practicing this new talent!
She also waved “bye bye” for the first time this week. She waved to Michael (the handyman who built our wall) of all people! It was hilarious (and a little shocking considering she’s usually suspicious of strangers).
Oma (MamaP) was in town and Amelie enjoyed the extra attention. She’s a shy but social little girl. She wants to be involved and interacted with.
It was also Daddy’s birthday! She LOVES being with her Daddy.
She knows how to make him melty! And so it begins…
