Oh Miss Fin, I have always loved you but now I really really like you. You are just the most smiley little thing, all I have to do is look at you and you grin the most adorable double chinned chubby cheeked grin. It's so fantastic to see you so happy now. For awhile there it seemed like you were on the path to depression and anxiety, I know that sounds completely ridiculous because you're just a baby but you always seemed so uncomfortable. Everyone told me you would come around and you finally have.
You are content to play by yourself for a little while now which is nice because I can make a cup of coffee or pee without holding you. You are also quite entertained by watching your crazy big sister. Oh, your big sis Aubrey, she loves you something fierce. You are the first person she asks for in the morning and she is constantly grabbing your face and giving you kisses. The other day I had you in your walker and I was in the bathroom doing my makeup. You started to cry but then stopped after a minute or two. I figured you had just stopped on your own but when I came out into the living room, Aubrey had given you your binkie and was sitting next to you holding you hand. You guys are going to have such a beautiful relationship.
There is one thing though, you still don't sleep very well. You go down fine but wake multiple times a night. I usually only feed you once between 2-4 but Daddy and I are usually in there at least three other times consoling you back to sleep. Sorry to break it to you but we might have to try some sort of sleep training in the near future.
Lots of love,
Other things that have been going on with Fin:
-She sees a chiropractor every week or two and it has seemed to help out a lot.
-She has started solids- So far she has had banana, avocado, rice cereal, butternut squash, apple, sweet potato and toast. I really want to do full on BLW but I'm still a little nervous about it.
-I stopped using the sleep suit and now that she has the freedom of rolling, she sleeps most of the night on her belly.
