A few things I wrote about Lainey the past week when she was 24 weeks old! ( she is 25, going on 26 now!)
Two days ago Lainey started to shake her head from side to side ( no no no ) it's the cutest thing!
She started to sit for longer periods of time. She loves to sit, stand up and be held lots!
If I go away from her presence, she follows me with her eyes and starts calling me right away, fussing or crying. She wants to be with me pretty much all the time! She is such a mummy's girl!
She is starting to get frustrated if she can't get something from a table ..etc! What a character! She wants the camera, video, phone…you name it!
She still wakes up every 2 hours to eat! Sometimes every 1 hour and a half! ( for the past month)
One day she slept two streches of 5 hours each. Yesterday she did 2 streches of 3 hours, one of 2 hours and 40 minutes and one of 2! Improving!? I guess I should have slept more when she was doing 8 hours or more!
Though it is tiring, I have to say that I remember it felt harder when I was nursing Lemmy at times, as he used to eat for so long…he had a rough patch of sleeping about the same time as Lainey. I wonder why? Lainey eats for less than 6 minutes and as I lie her down, she keeps on sleeping :)
She is so fun, she loves to laugh and giggle! She is a very sensitive soul. If I had a bit of an argument with Marc or I was upset cause my mum left, she senses and cries too… :(
I love you so much Lainey! She has been having a hard time to fall asleep in the night, She is crying every time I put her down, even though I'm with her all the time and she is comfy in our bed! We are trying to help her in any way we can, singing, holding her, burping her, talking…stroking her head and hands…today she went down easier. We try to keep her routine, though just pushed her bed time a bit later as she has been enjoying more play time now that she is a bit older.She went down at 7:20pm today and she is out. Today was good.
For naps, she only falls asleep on our arms with music on, the curtains shut,less light. We try to put her down in her chair…but only lasts less than 20 minutes!
Still loves and can fall asleep in the car seat, sling and buggy.
Love her so much! My little princess!! I enjoy dressing her up with pretty dresses, with pink, head bands and tights. She is a delight! She is always smiling and gets super excited with the slightest attention.
I have been taking tons of pictures of her since the day she has born. Hopefully shared more of the oldies and new ones here! Every week I do one on her cot to see the difference at the end of the year, every 4 weeks I put her in a chair alone, and with her bunny, also to compare later on…I'm trying to take lots and lots as I please, and she ADORES the camera! She instantly starts to kick her legs, laughs and smiles…Here I want to share some photos of her 24th week of being with us!
Leilani Valentina Sol James, you are truly our heavenly flower.
With big brother Lemmy, they both adore each other to the max!
As you can see, Lainey still dislikes to be on her tummy, she lasts only seconds! Here they are watching daddy, and Lemmy is sharing sweet talk with her.
