4 months and 10 years
Such sweet smiles and giggles from her.
She hasn't put much weight on again and for some reason today I decided to get Hannah's baby book out to compare. Hannah weighed exactly the same at 4 months. So I don't need to worry. It was also good to look through the rest of Hannah's book and see that she didn't put loads of weight on through the rest of the year, so I can anticipate a similar trend with Anastasia and not be concerned about it.
On reflection I realize that I was more concerned this time because Anastasia struggled so much more with colic and spitting up. She also doesn't sleep as well as the others, so this all made me a little more concerned about her slow weight gain. I'm so relaxed about it now. I wish I had checked sooner. :-)
Below: It's fun to monkey around.
Although she has rolled from her back onto her stomach, she doesn't do it too often.
Over the last week we have started a new tradition for Hezekiah - rough time with Dad each day. At times Hannah (and sometimes Ruth) are happy to have pretend fights with Hezekiah, but they are getting less frequent while Hezekiah's need for them increases. So Brendon has made sure he gets at least 5 minutes (sometimes even 20 minutes) each day to play with him and give him that outlet.
Hezekiah has a book to return to the library tomorrow, and I hadn't got very far into it with him. So Rachel helped read more to him this afternoon.
She then made some more icing for the pink dots / flowers and the green grass and leaves. She has bought herself a nice big set of icing tips and a lot of different piping bags (some disposable ones as well as some silicone ones - pictured on the right).
I just love what she did with the leaves coming out of his mouth. And she did so well with the grass tip. I have never managed to use icing tips very well - so I was very impressed.
Hannah's birthday is only on Sunday, so she is having a lovely weekend full of fun.
And laughing. :-)
