This week you turned 7 weeks old!
You are growing like crazy. I have officially packed away all of your newborn clothing now (you have moved into 000 in Australian sizes, 0-3 month in US sizes). You also have moved from newborn into infant nappies (diapers) - gosh you are growing quickly!
This week you also discovered your hand and you LOVE sucking on the side of your fist. It's a nice comfort just as you are calming down for sleep. When you wake up we often find you have sucked on your hand through your wrap, leaving a big wet spot on the wrap!
Unfortunately this week you also got your first cold. You are still a very happy baby, but you have SO much trouble getting to sleep because you are stuffed up. I'm really glad at this point you have a short memory, because I feel terrible when you cry as I clear out your nose:( But we have found that if I hold you for 10-15 minutes after falling asleep you get into that deep sleep and then I can put you down in your cot for a rest - whatever works!
We also have started doing a lot more tummy time this week. The little cloth under your chest helps you to prop up a bit and get your feet down to push at the the floor. They tell me this will help you learn to crawl.
You aren't a fan of tummy time though - you last quite happily for 5 minutes - sometimes more. But we will persevere to help you get nice and strong!
You also love to pull yourself up. When I put you on my knees and give you a finger to grip in each hand you start straight away trying to pull yourself forward - my strong girl!
You are also smiling more & more. When I go to your cot to unwrap you after a sleep you look up at me with a HUGE grin. It is toooooooooooo cute :)
You also LOVE the zebra on your mobile that's hanging above the change table. When I lay you down you look up for the zebra and immediately start smiling and talking to him.
