Elsa Louise at 35 Weeks
Moving on to Elsa's 35 week update....
I mentioned in her 34 week update that she likes to make lots of noises and this week she's added 'singing' to her sounds. She quietly sings "ha ha ha" with the same tones every time. It's the first sounds she's ever repeated back to me when I make them. This all started on Sunday the 26th as well as bouncing to music. Gotta love a dancing baby! :) We continue to work on transitioning out of the swaddle but are stuck with what to do about the fact that she likes to sleep on her side now but gets herself to her tummy and can't flip back over. I would be a wreck if it weren't for the video monitor that allows me to watch her like a hawk. On more than one occasion I've had to dash upstairs because she's turned her head straight down into the mattress.
We haven't started solid foods yet so she hasn't had an opportunity to practice picking up small objects. I go out of my way to make sure she doesn't have small objects near her and it dawned on me that she's missing out on practicing her pincer grasp! oops! So I sat down with her a few days ago to see how she would respond to something the size of a cheerio in front of her. She reached right for it and picked it up with her forefinger and her thumb. Good girl!
As the artwork in your nursery says - you are my I love you!!!
Happy 8 month birthday baby girl!
