So, I already posted about Madeleine’s umbilical cord stump falling off. What else has happened this week?
She is now holding her head up on her own for extended periods of time. She was able to lift it from the day she was born, but it usually flopped back down right away. Now she can hold it up and look around as I carry her around the house!!
A funny facial development is that she now sticks her tongue out and uses it when she’s making faces at us. 🙂 Makes me giggle!
She also has been spending more time on her tummy! Her legs are quite strong and she’s got the bottom half of crawling figured out. Now she just needs to get her arms working as well and she’ll be cruisin’ in no time. Also, if I hold her in the standing position in my lap, she will straighten her legs out and push off. Get ready for your Johnny Jumper, baby girl!! 🙂
While you wait for me to update with a tummy time post, here’s a picture to tide you over. But first, a disclaimer: no, we are not torturing our child. Sometimes she screams, sometimes she smiles and looks all around lifting and swiveling her head.
She had her first video chat with my parents. 🙂
She also had her first outing with just her mommy yesterday. We went to the grocery store and then to her daddy’s work to take him some Dayquil. We then went to lunch with Jo and Aiden, B and D, Jackie and Dana! She’s had so much fun meeting all these new people. Unfortunately she was a tad fussy when it was time for people to hold her, so we had to leave rather quickly and get her home for her lunch.
She has developed a bout of baby acne. 😦 Poor baby! But after some googling, this appears to be rather common and showed up right on cue with what the MD websites say it should. What a relief to know it’s normal. I’d been worried!
And on Saturday, she transitioned from her newborn clothes into her 0-3 month clothes. 😦 My little girl is growing WAY too fast. Right now she’s just between sizes where the NB clothes are a tad bit short in the sleeves and sometimes the legs. Most of the onesies are too tight though. But the 0-3 month clothes are still just a tad bit big. I can’t believe it’s already been 3 weeks. *cry*
