Saturday morning. Two days since I have written. I am TRYING to not let this slip. LOL. I always start a blog with the best of intention and then let it fizzle. A couple of not so eventful days, but I think Alyssa may be entering a growth spurt or cutting a tooth or SOMETHING. She has woken up between 3 and 4 for the last few mornings. I assure you, I am not friendly at that time of day. Thursday night she even managed to try Neil’s patience….which is a feat… that man has the patience of a saint. We have figured out through trial and error, she is done sleeping in our bed. She used to wake up mid way through the night and we would bring her to bed and she would pass out without argument. Now, it is a HUGE fight. So, we snuggle her for a bit and then when the fight is too much… back to her crib. She fusses for about 5 minutes and is down for the count. This morning she woke back up at 730 and was back to sleep before I finished making her bottle.
Overall, we’ve been trying to work with her with PT exercises. Getting her legs up under her. The thing with Alyssa is if she does it once, she is golden. Once she figures out how much easier something is, she runs with it. So, I know if we get her to four point crawl on her own once, she will master it in now time. Also, feeding is progressing. She constantly wants to feed herself. That would rock, if she fully could. She manages to get the spoon in her mouth, but the getting the food on the spoon (or even little dipper) is a challenge still. However, she gets a bit closer each day. It is a matter of controlling so many muscles at once and I know she has it in her. She just has to figure out which ones to use at what time. LOL.
Yesterday she was a crab (I’m assuming back to growth spurt or teething). However, today she is happy and smiley. Almost time for some breakfast and then I think we will get down on the floor and play. Maybe she will even entertain the idea of playing in the sewing room while I cut out some projects. . . doubtable . . .
