A few weeks ago Annie and I did a water babies class together at Health Plus. It was wonderful and I highly recommend it! We sang songs and worked on kicking and "scoops" - too cute! By the end Annie was able to roll off the side and hang on by herself. Such a big girl.
Annie has been a really good sleeper so far and I have considered myself incredibly blessed (of course for many other reasons as well!!!). Recently though she started waking up every 2 hours like she did in the very beginning. Well - for those who don't know yet I am now a single parent (will go more into that at another time) and getting up every two hours just isn't really working. I did some googling and found that a lot of moms had this same experience when their little ones were around 6 to 7 months. A lot of them figured out that it was because their babiesi were cold. Well - that's an easy remedy I could try. Last night was the second night we have sported footie pjs and let me just tell you sleeping is back on track! If anyone else is experiencing this GO STOCK UP ON FOOTIE PJs!!!! HAHAHAHA! Works like a charm ;) A friend of mine has my camera but when I get it back I will post a picture of Annie is some of her favorite new footies! If only all of life's problems could be solved by putting on a pair of footie pj's... hmmm... worth a shot?
Annie just had her 6 month appointment and we have lots of updates! She got her first tooth last Wednesday! It was a tough day but she was a champ. It is a bottom tooth and she looks just beautiful of course :) Her appointment went really well. She weighs 17.5 pounds and is in the 75th percentil for weight. She is 26.5 inches long and is in the 90th percentile for height. She is so long she is still in clothes 3 months ahead. Boogie is also about to start crawling. She can get up on her hands and knees and rock back and forth. She will lunge forward to a toy too but hasn't quite gotten the hang of one leg at a time. She is very determined though and I know will be crawling any day now. I have baby proofed the house and we are ready.
Our latest update is that we are doing Water Babies at Health Plus Fitness Center. Annie absolutely loves it! One of the teachers also works at Annie's school and she recognized Annie immediately. It was so sweet. She said "hey Annie" and came right over. Annie makes us popular everwhere! haha! Who does that sound like? Grandaddy??? hahaha! We sing songs and kick and even go under. She loves it. Of course she loves taking a shower like a big girl afterwards just as much but that's ok.
Ok... off to make dinner and get ready for tomorrow. Boogie is worn out after her class and will hopefully sleep until 2... we'll see. My phone is broken as of tonight and I am going to get a new one tomorrow. So, I will be back in touch then. Good night!
