More than a few interesting and awesome things are happening to my baby, and it’s all part of her (sadly and happily) growing.
One tooth, a central incisor, is now obviously coming it. When I feel it with my finger, it’s very much like a scissor. I am a little nervous when I feed her, because she has been keen to bite down before she latches off. However, I am not going to let any amount of teeth stop me from continuing to breastfeed.
As for being able to get around on her own, Lilah can successfully scoot backwards until she bumps into something. She can also get on her hands and knees and rock back and forth. I am not sure how far away crawling would be at this point. It’s always possible that she will just skip crawling, but who knows?
As far as personality goes, my baby is certainly a screecher. My little pterodactyl loves to let out her crazy sounds anywhere and everywhere. Some people assume that she is doing this because she is upset, but she is certainly smiling and having a good time just testing and exploring her vocals. Also, she now goes “BA BA BA BA BA” over and over sometimes, and it’s so cute when she does.
I can’t wait to see how much she will change, and I bet I will be even more shocked by how quickly the changes occur.
Speaking of baby, I have completed some Lilah-oriented crafts recently…
A humble abode for her stuffed animals. I completely forgot about these hammocks until I came across this pattern. Then it all came rushing back, and I remembered how I had one of these in my room when I was little. I just HAD to crochet one! ^_^
On the Raverly website I came across a pattern for baby wristwarmers. It was a pretty fast crochet project, taking only about 30 minutes. I put them on Lilah and they were the perfect size!
As for my next baby-oriented project, I was really thinking about crocheting a poncho!
