Another week has flown by and Little I continues to develop her little personality. Separation anxiety has hit and she has begun crying and getting quite ditressed when I leave the room. It is incredibly sweet but also rather frustrating as she wants to be held by me all the time. We went to a family party at the weekend (where she wore a beautiful pink Next party dress) but she got very upset when anyone held her. Little E was never like this so it is all new.
She continues to exercise on the playmat and she is nearly there with rolling. She gets her leg over but her bottom shoulder gets in the way so she can't flip completely onto her tummy. She rolls onto her side then back onto her back and ends up all over the playmat! Because she is on the move we have had to put the 4th side onto the bedside co-sleeper cot. She is still next to me but now she is completely enclosed in her cot. I miss having her lying directly next to me but I am sleeping better knowing she won't roll into me.
Her grasp is also coming along and she is grabbing for toys and shaking them about now. She loves holding fabric and will cling onto her blankets and muslins. She also really enjoys watching TV and insisted on staying up to watch the Diana movie with me and my girlies at the weekend. It was the worst movie we have ever watched but Little I lasted for over an hour. Clearly the dialogue was more fascinating in baby speak.
The Doctor has suggested going back on the Gaviscon as she thinks her snuffly nose is linked to reflux. She seems to be sleeping better since we started it so hopefully it is helping her. She is hardly ever sick anymore so I was surprised that she thinks it is reflux not allergies but I guess time will tell.
This mirror shot is one of my favourite of the week because I have a similar one of Little E (although she is a few weeks older). It is so sweet when they babble to themselves in the mirror! You can see in the two photos how similar they are, especially the hair. Little I is far chubbier though. Everyone wants to squeeze her hamster cheeks!
