Junior Weaning at 5 months and what else is new?

Junior has started weaning! I haven’t been looking forward to this at all (I also dread potty training)! It is so messy and these babies are so unpredictable! I’ve promised myself I won’t put too much pressure on myself and will let the little man take the lead so we’ll see how that pans out…

Goodbye to the Dummy – 10 Month

So this week aside from Anjie walking, we’ve decided to say good-bye to the dummy, even though it was a lifesaver. The nights haven’t been easy but we’re getting there… As much as I loved the dummy I’ve always had this fear at the back of my mind that she would get too attached to it if we left it too late, heard too many horror stories really! Overall she took it quite well, not missing it at all but she’s been waking up quite a bit at night looking for food! Do babies still have growth spurts at this age? Or could she just be getting more teeth?

She’s got 4 now, so cute! (I have to say it was a real struggle getting her to show the top teeth! But the bottom two are always easy…)

How are we Crawling, Standing and Sleeping…?

It’s official, Anjie is crawling!!! And is she stopping there?? Nooooo, she’s using everything in her path to stand up now! I’m talking my legs, her daddy, her cot, chairs, sofas and heck, even the radiators (quite worrying I tell you)! It’s so lovely to see and I’m so proud of her! And she’s so fast too! I wasn’t expecting her to do much of these things until like 8-9 months! But believe me, I’m glad!

These achievements remind me of the Pampers commercial which shows babys’ climbing chairs with Coldplay’s Viva la Vida playing as a soundtrack. Their smiles at the end their climbs were soo proud and happy! That’s the smile Anjie has when she stands up and I just can’t get enough of it… An example being this picture! Very cheeky! Especially since she was supposed to be asleep!

Off to the Movies and Weaning, again

So last weekend we went to the movies. The last movie we saw was the Avengers which was amazing, there were applauds in the cinema at the end, it was that good. So this time, with much anticipation and excitement we went to see Prometheus.

Sadly, I’ll have to give it a 5/10. Hubby and I were completely disappointed with the movie as it left so many questions unanswered and for a movie which is supposed to be a prequel to Aliens we didn’t see much of them! But hey, that’s just me! I’m not a movie critic so I’m not going to talk too much about it!

So where was Anjie in all this..?

Blowing Raspberries and Weaning so far

So this past week saw the ‘end’ of the lovely summery weather we had been having; I have to say it was really sad to see it go! It doesn’t help that this weekend is the Jubilee weekend with a double bank holiday on Monday and Tuesday (doesn’t make much of a difference to me though!)! Would have been nice to go to the park as a family and just spend sometime outdoor. Oh well maybe the sun might still come out a bit…

Anjie is Weaning and Swimming at 5 months!

Although we had a relatively quite week the weekend was busy! We decided to introduce Anjie to some baby food! Namely baby rice and banana porridge… The initial plan was to wait till she was 6 months but she’s been giving all the signs of being ready, including great head control, sitting up on her own, watching us while eating and sometimes even taking food from our plate and putting it in her mouth! So with that decide to hit the 22 week mark and start! I figured I’ll start with baby cereal once a day then gradually increase it to three times a day and bring in puree by 6 months. For now i give her the cereal after her breastmilk, that way she isn’t too hungry and cranky.

My baby’s growing up!!

Anjie is 3 Months and Counting! Thank you Lord!

So Anjie turned 3 months today! Yippeeee! Ironically she’s been a tad bit cranky and clingy today, but thankfully, she’s asleep now… I took this picture earlier in the week and really love it so figured I’ll post it here! Oh and that’s pebbles, one of her first cuddly friends 🙂
