My little bundle has been so much fun this week. Her smile is infectious and she is on the verge of laughing. We keep blowing raspberries on her tummy and she is only a breath away from chuckling.
She is still point blank refusing to drink expressed milk from a bottle or cup. Her Grandparents tried at the weekend but no luck. When Husband tried she chewed on the teat but didn't actually drink any. At least she didn't scream the place down this time and infact she fell asleep with it in her mouth and ended up like this on the sofa:
Little E has been playing and reading to her lots this week which is very sweet
However, I did accidentally catch a shot of this (see below) I was expecting to take a cute photo but instead I unknowingly caught the little sister cheek squeeze.... At least we now have a record to show Little I what she had to put up with!
The Doctor has diagnosed croup and possibly upper respiratory tract problems explaining her snuffly baby issues. It could also be allergies such as hayfever or even possibly to something I am eating. We've been referred to a paediatrician but in the meantime we have bought a cool air humidifier to help stop her airways drying out at night and to help the croup. Review coming soon...
Today she has mastered rolling properly and can release the stuck arm after a bit of grunting effort. However, she then gets stuck on her tummy and can't roll back so I have to rescue her every 5 minutes!
