Obsession with the TV console
No matter how many fun toys I surround Audrey with, whenever we are in the living room she makes a beeline for the TV console. I don’t know if it’s her reflection in the glass that is so enticing, the lights on the receiver, or the fact that sound is emanating from that general direction via the music we often play. Wait — I know: she is genetically programmed to love electronics!
First tooth on the way
On Friday Kenji felt the ridge of Audrey’s first tooth emerging! Some white is visible when you peek into her mouth. My mom is guessing that the tooth will be up by the time they visit this weekend.
Audrey has started to play vocally with “m” sounds…can “mama” be too far off??
From tummy to sitting
I was watching Audrey play on the floor on Monday, as usual. She was on her belly scooting around, and then, after I looked away for only a second, she happened to be sitting up. That’s new, I thought. Kenji chanced on seeing her do it again yesterday.
First cat scratch
And sadly not the last, I am sure. I just didn’t intervene in time yesterday. Nimbus was frisky, and Audrey was quick to get a fistful of tail. The result: a miffed cat, upset mother, and crying baby. No winners.
First taste of avocado
I promise to not keep writing a new post for every single new food Audrey tries, because that could go on for years. But, it’s worth mentioning that she seems to really like avocado. A girl after her mother’s heart!
Sleeping through the night
Okay, this has actually been happening for two weeks or so, but it is definitely worth mentioning! It’s hard to say whether it’s because of solid foods or her age, and how long it will last, but we will all relish it for now. Now if only we can convince her to sleep past 5:30 a.m.
