My Little Rose: 45 Weeks Old

Every week with you just gets better and better. I am feeling so wonderful with Grandma still in town and she is enjoying time with you so much. No one can deny your adorableness.











As we suspected you officially got your first tooth cut in this week. And now you have a tiny little snaggle tooth. Only one. Vampire style just like your brother had.


Today you managed to finally get up on your hands and knees crawling but we didn’t get it on camera, daddy and I both saw you do it. But immediately after when I tried to record it you revered to your same old army crawl. Maybe next week I will get lucky and be able to record it.

Its starting to get hotter, you are old enough to sit up with good balance so I busted out the bathing suit for you this week. We set up the little pool and you had a blast for about an hour splashing away. I have to be so careful with you outside. You want to put every little bit of everything you find in your mouth, and I don’t really want you crawling around on your belly on the cement and in the dirt. Soon enough you will be running around with your brother, until then I will make sure you are supervised closely.





Grandma is still here helping and things get done a little differently than we normally do things. For instance, our deep bath tubs are hard for grandma to bathe you in. So now you are getting baths in the kitchen sink! At first I thought it was really strange but then I had to admit it IS easier. Therefore all week you have been getting your baths done in the sink.





I have been over the past few weeks been trying to get you to learn how to drink out of straw. It’s been slow going but I want to transition you out of bottles soon and into sippy cups. I have been working with you and a regular straw, holding my finger over the end with some water in it, and then having you work to suck the liquid out. You have that pretty down pat now, the issue is having you suck a kids cup straw now. Baby steps little girl, we will get there.


Cami needs so much right now and I am constantly shifting between what he desperately needs and giving you enough attention life is hard right now for sure. I also struggle with guilt that you don’t have my undivided attention all the time, that I am not doing enough, that I am not there for you every time you need me, that I have to hire babysitters to help, that I am not making you your baby food, that I stopped breast feeding. The list is endless. I also hate that I have to wake you up from your nap that I have to modify your natural rhythm because of your brother’s schedule. It is our life right now and all I can do is my best. You seem to be taking it all in stride though. Thank goodness you are such a wonderful mellow go with the flow kind of girl.
