What a month it has been! Brooklyn's learning things so quickly it's ridiculous. I'm excited that we are getting to see more of her little personality (which is wacky like her parents) but I'm sad that it's happening oh so very quickly.
Anywho...I digress. On to the milestones because one day I will be old and I'll look back on this here interweb diary of sorts and get to remember all this like it was yesterday. I knew blogging would be good for something.
Height: 28.25 inches (90%)
Weight: 18 lbs (55%)
- She is a great eater! 4 bottles a day and is up to about 6-8 oz of food per day. We do cereal and fruit in the morning, and veggie and protein (pureed meat kinda creeps me out so sometimes we do 2 different veggies) in the evening. She's also decided that she likes to try to feed herself. She's great at getting the spoon in but then she lets go and sits there with the spoon in her mouth until you take it out. She also thinks it's funny to grab the part of the spoon with the food in it and then grin at you.
- Still no teeth. She also still doesn't babble really. No "babababas" or "mamamamas" yet. She likes squealing and growling and she'll say "poo" which sounds more like a bird call.
- She can stand up holding on to the couch if you stand her there and the past two weeks when you stand her up and hold her waist she'll practice bending as far to the side as she can and when she can't bend any further she'll start tilting her head down and when she's as low as she can get she'll just hang out there for a bit before standing back up straight. She's a whack-a-doodle.
Some not-cool milestones:
- She has learned to fake cry. She scrunches up her face and does the "WAA-HAA" noise and then looks at you with a straight face to see if it's working.
- When she's on the floor playing on her tummy and you are, say, folding laundry (right next to her, may I add) and she wants you to pay attention (or if she gets bored and wants to move on to the next activity) she will smush her face down into the floor and (with her head still down) bang both hands on the floor and whine. It's like a toddler on the floor of the grocery store tantrum "lite". Lord help us.
