To-Do list for the weekend:
– Lower Kensie’s Crib because she’s figured out how to pull herself up
– Buy an Amber Teething Necklace if Kensie is cranky again tomorrow
Everyday sure is an adventure with this little one!
K baby was a crankasourous today. Not sure if this clinginess is another phase or (finally) teething, but home girl wouldn’t chill out this morning. She was back and forth between fussing and crying for about 4 hours until she finally took a nap.
When she got up she was in a decent mood so we practiced eating! She had just under an ounce of her puréed food and started spitting it out. I gave her some teething crackers and she played with them but hasn’t quite grasped the concept of swallowing “chunks” yet.
I let crank butt loose in the living room for a minute to clean off her high chair and before I could blink this nugget was in the kitchen in the dog bowl. 🤦🏼♀️
I felt like K could use a little outing (okay maybe I needed one so I didn’t have to hear this child fuss all afternoon) so we went to the store before I had to coach.
The gym went very similar to yesterday where Kensie death gripped me if anyone wanted to hold her and I had to coach with her in my arms. She fell asleep toward the end so at least she got another nap in today!
This evening I chatted with a friend of mine who is an Occupational Therapist and she told me when babies learn a new skill a lot of times it’s accompanied by them waking more at night for a little while. We also discussed sleep training and how it worked for her little girl so Chris and I are looking more into it and I think we are going to give it a go! I’m certain we can all agree Kensie doesn’t need milk in the middle of the night now 😂 and after 8 months, I would love to sleep for more than 3 hour increments.
I’ll keep you guys posted…send prayers. Lol
