Countdown to one!
I can hardly believe it, but my baby girl is almost one. We’ve spent a whole year with this sweet, wonderful little person.
I’m dismally behind on documenting her milestones but I did make a mental note of the first time she stood up against something on her own (30 June)
Tonight she was standing against the couch, flinging her dad’s pj’s onto the carpet, the litte minx.
She’s had a couple of nights of not being herself. Everyone still had pretty much their full quota of sleep, but she’s been going to bed later. She also introduced a strict lunch time nap (for two hours at least) which probably accounts for the later bedtime. We also had to administer pain meds twice this week. And on Monday night, she puked the entire contents of her bottle onto her dad while he was trying to feed her her solids.(First time she has vomited in her life!) She took that remarkably well, actually. Didn’t even cry.
The last two days, we have noticed that her right eye is red, particularly in the corner.
So today we took her to the clinic sister for a check up. And lo and behold – a new tooth is through and another hot on its heels! Her two top front tooth 🙂
The sister said pretty much all the symptoms could be accounted for by the teething. Even the red eye, which incidentally is looking better tonight.
As with everything else, she took the teething so well, we didn’t even notice what was going on, though we did suspect.
Her appetite has been a little down, but not by much.
Her good humour has remained fully intact.
So yes, we are still completely spoilt parents!
Her word count is quite impressive already. (Well, we’re very impressed)
Apart from Mama, Dada, Baba, num-num and lig, she is calling the dogs by their names, Bear and Teddy, and when asked what sound a duck makes, she says quack-quack. Granted, it sometimes sounds more like kak-kak, but I’ll take it. Also, Mmmmmmm for a cow.
It’s so cute, watching her development 🙂
