Reagan is ACE!
I was just going to leave it at that but thought I would tell you about the things she does now. She was 18 weeks old on Wednesday and she is such a happy baby. She smiles all the time and is now just about giggling at anything and everything so long as you say “ah oh!” first?
Standing up is her favourite position and her tummy is her worst position, I don’t think she will crawl for long if at all she will want to be walking. As for rolling over it hasn’t happened yet but I believe that is because of her dislike of what happens when she does, so doesn’t try too hard.
Sitting upright is a must now she loves to be able to see everything that’s going on and moans if what’s going on doesn’t involve her and has learned to moan until she gets attention…just like her mama!
Food has had to move on because, mom’s milk and bottles are just not enough for a 19lb+ baby and we are supplementing not weaning with rice and porridge, mom adds a bit of veg in too for variety. Up to now Reagan has experienced carrot, broccoli, cucumber banana and potato and mommy is always trying her with other things if she can.
Sleep is hit and miss at the moment but luckily for us though its predominantly hit and she sleeps through most nights, we just remember the bad nights a lot more lol Routine has helped Reagan a lot and also allowed us to have some evening time together without her which is great.
Reagan is so inquisitive and is learning every second of everyday and it makes me happy to see her do new stuff recently her hand coordination improved along with her grip and she is now able to get the thing she wants most times and almost do what she wants with it too and gets better everytime she tries. Its fascinating to watch her work it out.
Wind is a absolute fixation for her when trees and things move because of it and loves looking out of the window at the world and I’m sure thinking wow. She loves to be sung to even dads awful rendition of Lilly the Pink but if we sit in front of the computer and watch cartoons she can’t take her eyes of it except when her lids get too heavy to hold up any longer and she has to rest them on her bottom lids for a while lol
Her pram and car seat are just too relaxing I think because she falls to sleep every time she is in them which can be dangerous in the evening because if she has a lovely nap when we go out for a walk she can fight bedtime for longer
I honestly think she is the best thing I have ever done and I know Jamie thinks exactly the same way!
