Week 35

Easter weekend made for a week with lots of hanging out with friends and family. PlusOne had a great time hanging out with Uncles, Aunts, Grandparents and Cousins. She’s started loving interacting with people, and even started putting on a little coy/cute pose when she has their attention.

Solid food is going gangbusters, and she loves it. She’s also started making the first moves towards waving and clapping – which gets her very excited.

Now… onto the photos. Continue Reading →

Week 34

It’s been a fun week this week. Mum celebrated her first birthday with PlusOne on the outside. We were reminiscing about a year ago (when she was on the inside) thinking about her being around – and now she is :)

This week saw the start of a new routine including proper breakfast in the morning. It’s still having a varied level of success – but seems like a good addition. ‘NaNaNaNa’ has entered the vocabulary (much to Nan’s excitement) and just in the last day or so we’ve also seen ‘Mamama’ added (but so far only when she is sad about something).

Movement continues to happen in odd ways. Lots of rolling and bouncing – but thankfully no crawling yet.

Now, on to the photos…

Week 33

It seems like PlusOne has come into her own this week. Random noises have started sounding more like one way conversations. The occasional roll-over is turning into a way of getting herself all around the floor in a hurry. Its great to see her advancing, but bittersweet to see her growing up so fast.

The last 6 weeks of building a bedtime routine has finally paid off. We trialled the routine in a new location on Saturday night and worked like a charm – straight off to sleep. Hurray!

Now, onto the photos…

Week 32

What a week. Our little girl is growing up so fast.
We’ve had a lot of playing on the floor and we think that self propulsion is not too far away.
Food is fun and experimenting with different flavours and textures is pretty interesting.

Week 31

Another week has flown by. Continued efforts at sleep training have meant lots of time at home – but we made it out and about a few times. PlusOne continues to develop her personality – and has spent this week testing some of her boundaries when it comes to sleeping and eating.

This week she’s developed a new smile/laugh which both mum and dad find absolutely hilarious – we’ll have to try and capture it sometime.

Anyway, on to the photos… Continue Reading →

Week 30

Another week older!

PlusOne has finally figured out (hopefully) how bedtime works, which has made going to sleep much more likely. This is very exciting for all involved.

She continues to become more active, and though she can’t crawl – she manages to roll herself around the floor to get to toys (or more often the puppy). We’re going to be in big trouble once she can crawl.

Week 29

This week has been an interesting one. More sleep training has been hard work, but with success. PlusOne now consistently sleeps through the night again – hurray! Now we just need to work on daytime naps a little.

She’s really hit her stride this week with solids. She’s loving her pureed veggies, and just started getting a few things like steamed carrots and beans to chew/suck on.

Now… some photos… Continue Reading →

Week 28

This week ha been an…. interesting one. We’ve been working on improving PlusOne’s ability to sleep on her own – we’ve ben seeing some improvement, but it is still hard work.

In the midst of all of that, however, she is still lovely to be around when she is awake. We had fun catching up with W + J, and also playing with cousin A.

We also had a lovely surprise visit in Wollongong from Auntie K, Cousin A and Nan – which was lots of fun.

Playtime on the floor is resulting in a lot more movement and activity which is exciting to watch. She certainly enjoys getting around on the rug.

Now…. onto the photos. Continue Reading →
