Aoife is constantly hungry at the minute and I feel like I’m forever trying to find something for her to snack on. I’m not sure if its totally normal how hungry she is all the time but all I can do is try to find her healthy things to munch on. How much should a 16month old be eating? Some days it feels like she’s eating more than I am.
There has been a serious lack of posting on the blog these last few weeks and it’s all been down to one thing. Little A is now properly on the move meaning I can’t take my eyes of her for one minute at the moment. Her crawling has become speedy and she is also pulling herself up on everything she can find.
How this has happened I have no idea! I haven’t done un update for quite some time, the last couple of months have been pretty hectic with nights out, Christmas and Aoife now napping less and being far more active through the day. All this along with me trying to teach myself to knit hasn’t given me much free time at all.
Whoever invented the phrase sleeping like a baby must have never actually had a baby. Most of the babies I know don’t sleep very well at all including A a lot of the time. Since the last time I spoke about sleep we have gone through quite a few different phases. During one of these phases A would not settle at night at all and was only happy to go to sleep when she was being held by me.
Last week A became 5 month old but the weather was so amazing I didn’t have time to post an update. When the sun shines in Scotland you really need to make the most of it and that will probably be it now till the spring!
So A can now roll easily from her back to her front and back again. If you put her down to play and leave the room she will be an entirely different place by the time you come back, normally with one of her toys in her mouth smiling at her little adventure.
When I was pregnant I decided that I didn’t want to know if I was having a girl or a boy. This meant that most of the clothes I purchased where from the boys section of the store as I felt that these were more wearable by both sexes so it didn’t matter what we had. When A was born we were bombarded with pink, pink and more pink.
