Life Through Claire’s Eyes: Month 6 – 7

November 7, 2013

At the beginning of this month, I started sitting up all by myself. By the second day I realized it is the best way to see the world so I decided to make it my new favourite thing to do. In fact, it’s even better than the “circle of neglect” (as Mom and Dad call it) so I usually get cranky when I’m put in there now. The other thing I love to do more than ever is hang out in the carrier facing forward. I can see so much and I can also swing my legs from side to side like I’m dancing. It’s even better than the trusty jolly jumper!

What else is new? I gave in to Mom and Dad, but not without a fight, to this “sleep training.” I gave it my best effort, sometimes exercising my lungs for two hours straight, but they wore me down. They only came in every 10-15 minutes and never stayed all that long. So, I gave up, and most nights I’ve decided I’m better off sleeping until 5 or 6am. Mom and Dad are a lot more fun now so I guess it was worth it.

I’m enjoying solid food even more now. I’ve tried eating a couple of things myself, but why bother if Mom and Dad will feed me with a spoon? It’s definitely the easier way to go! My favourite foods are meat, fish, tofu, blueberries, and apples. Sometimes I like lentils, but I’m not much of a beans girl, unless they’re mixed with blueberries. Actually, anything mixed with blueberries is pretty delicious.

I’m becoming more expressive and I’ve decided scrunching my nose is pretty cool. Oh, and so is sticking out my tongue. Sometimes I make circles all around my lips with it. So much fun!

Since the first few weeks of “sleep training”, Mom and Dad would probably say I’m pretty easy to manage now. It’s a tight schedule between naps, the breastaurant, and solids, but I’m quite entertaining, if I do say so myself. What’s in store for Mom and Dad next? Stay tuned until next month to find out 😉

    As always, wonderful! Sorry I have not been in touch. My Mum had a fall just after Thanksgiving and she is staying with us. she requires a lot of attention right now, so I don’t get free very often. However if you need someone, let me know and I can always make some kind of arrangement to be there for you. Lots of love,

    Llaesa
