Video of Laurel
So I just discovered I can put up video! (Yes I've noticed the video icon, but I never actually thought about putting anything online).
Here's Laurel today, 2-21-08 enjoying her play gym.
Laurel is such a joy. She is so funny to interact with and makes all kinds of new chatter noises. She's working on her "b"s, but muffles them and scrunches her mouth up. I'll try to see if I can get it on video sometime:). She's also starting to enjoy peek-a-boo. She just laughs and laughs when you appear from hiding. Startled at first, but then giggles.
We've also started cereal again. She's taking to it a bit better. Unfortunately, it's changing her poops...a lot stinkier!
And finally we're on to a good solid routine! Up at 6:30/7, cereal at 8:45 followed by nursing, rocking and a nap at 9 for 1.5 - 2 hours! Up until 1 and then down for another hour. Sometimes at the store in the sling, when at home - in the crib. Up until 4ish and down for another hour. Bedtime routine starts at 7 with baths every other day. Nursing, rocking, singing and down around 7:30/45. No fussing:). She is loving her blankets. She loves to be snug as a bug and chew on the fabric. And I know she's well rested because she wakes happily and chats and coos.
Laurel is starting to get better at sitting by herself. She just needs a comforting hand on her back and she stays propped up. She also takes spastic marching steps when you hold her up. Still not a fan of tummy time, she will roll from her tummy to her back, but not vice versa...and prefers standing. Maybe not a crawler, we shall see!
