Em is still a total momma’s girl. She has been super clingy and cranky. She also hasn’t been sleeping great. She went through a big sleep regression, and for a few weeks was back to waking up 3-5 times a night. yeiks! She is back to waking once at night…. but it is looking like it is time to do some sleep training. Where is my baby that was sleeping 12 hrs through the night?
One of my biggest challenges has been time. Which is why I was two months behind on Em’s blog posts. Between working as a teacher full time, taking care of Em, taking care of the house, laundry… and then the holidays….there just wasn't enough time in the day.
Em’s new tricks, triumphs, and favorites:
Em has begun trying to stand on her own. She pulls up on everything. She loves toy animals and anything with wheels. She copies Lan and says Dada. Now when you lay her down in her crib, she will stand up holding the side and cry. She has also begun walking with her walker.
She is terrified of the Rumba and still hates the post office.
Things that I love:
Em is starting to get into everything. She is so interested in buttons, paper, things on shelves… or pretty much anything and everything. She loves to play with her toy food, and she will really play with you. She thinks it is so funny when I drive trucks up her arm and on her head. She loves sitting with daddy and hearing him read books to her. She loves to pull things out. Books off the shelf, toys out of a box, animals out of a bag.
