She moves!

Dear Lily

You have reached so many milestones during your 8th month – definitely much more than any other month so far. After weeks of doing ‘downward dog’ you are now finally crawling and even though it’s a rather strange crawl (as you prop one leg up like a frog), you are still getting about rather quickly.

You can now say ‘Mama’ and ‘Dada’ and wave goodbye. You love bouncing up and down to music and making your own with rattles and bells.

Separation anxiety has started as huge tears roll down your cheeks when Mummy leaves the room. And even though you are having fun at your trial period at childcare, I don’t think you are going to enjoy it when Mummy isn’t actually there!

You have also self-weaned yourself off breast milk which came to a big shock to Mummy as she didn’t expect it to happen so soon – but I guess it’s timely in a way with Mummy starting work soon.

It’s certainly has been a dramatic and exciting month!

Love your Mummy x

    Oh my goodness, she is a beauty! What a lovely photograph too – love the light. Good luck with working. I thought I’d never be able to go back as my brain would never function properly again but miss s has started to sleep much better and wake only once a night and my brain is starting to work again! Keep us updated with how work goes!

    Lily is just adorable. I hope the transition back to work goes smoothly for you.

    Thanks guys. It’s been quite rewarding to see Lily change so much in a month. I’ve been so busy at interviews and trying to get Lily into childcare etc but will try to do a post about this whole process!
