Baby is 10 months old today

10 months old

Wow!  Time really does fly.  Its quite extraordinary how the days and weeks whizz by.

Baby is amazing, she has a light inside her that everyone seems to notice.  Wherever we are she tries to talk to people and seems to make everyone smile.  We have spent the last month doing lots of clapping and high fiving.  She expects everyone to return her high fives, even strangers.  This was slightly embarrassing in the Doctors!.

I am so in love with Baby, she is my sunshine.  We have spent lots of time dancing together round the living room.  She loves it.  She has a certain smile, as if she is trying to be a proper ballroom dancer and laughs with delight when I start to sing our dancing song.

Her crawling has developed.  She now get herself in the crawling position, but she goes back to her old style (albeit using both legs) when actually moving.  She is NEVER still and is already into everything.

I am so grateful to be her mummy.

Weigh day

1st outfitTook Baby to be weighed today.  Typical new mum mistake was to put her in a really complicated outfit (complete with shoes, come on girls NEED shoes right?!) and then I had to get it off and on under pressure.  Note to self – Baby grows are the way forward on weigh days. (off to buy a suitable blinged up baby grow…)

Baby had put on the weight she dropped in the first week or so and now weighs 9lb 6oz. Clever Baby.

You’re Here! :)

Baby didn’t make a smooth, seamless entry to the world, she arrived on Saturday 30th March 2013 at 01.38 weighing 9lb 2oz, after 13 hours and 38 minutes.  Baby had to be helped out by forceps, as she started to get distressed, but all is well,  with Baby (I’m another story).  Oh and how brave am I posting the ‘just born’ picture (thank god for filters).
