One of the big reasons for starting this blog (aside from giving me something to do in my ample down time - I couldn't even write that with a straight face) is to share stories about Abner. She's four months old now and cuter than ever. Her favorite toy of late is a natural rubber ducky that was a gift from friends in Ontario. You'll see from the video below that she absolutely loves it and it's become a regular part of our morning tummy time.
In other Abner news, she survived her four month shots last week. Here are her latest stats for those of you keeping score:
Weight: 16 lbs.
She grew a whopping 10cm in two months and is now the height of an average eight-month-old! We're very pleased with how well she's growing, but it does make finding clothes a bit tricky (and the bulky cloth diapers don't help much either).
She's also starting to cut her first tooth (we think) so fussiness is becoming a daily routine around here. It's hard to tell if it's the real thing since she's been drooling like a basset hound for the past couple of months.
TDSH and I have had the joy of regaining our own bedroom again this week. We started putting Abner to bed in her own room last Friday. So far, it's been a bit hit and miss. Some nights are fantastic and others are fraught with trips back and forth to replace the soother than has inevitably popped out. NOTE: if someone has a trick to keep the soother in place, please let me know.
