Milestones: Guys, we have a HUGE smiler on our hands! Our girl is SO reactive to certain people when you get up close to her. She is cooing all the time, but no giggles yet. She tries so hard to roll over, but hasn’t done it anymore. She enjoys tummy time and is a total pro at lifting up her head. She is starting to grab at things – shirts, hair, toys on her play mat, etc. and loves hearing her toys make noises when she hits them. Andi has some pretty strong legs and likes to push and somewhat scoot around while she is on her tummy. It’s so fun watching her learn all of these new little things!
Fun “Firsts” This Month: Well, this isn’t a fun first, but Andersyn became one constipated baby this month. We finally had to give her some Karo syrup this past week after not going #2 for a whole week! She was passing a lot of bad gas and crying every time she tried to toot, so we added about 3/4 of a TBSP to a 3oz bottle one night and she pooped quite a bit by the next morning. She didn’t seem to have any cramping or pain while she went, and I was so relieved! Andersyn had her first trip to Kansas City this month with me and Nora. She did great and it was so fun showing her off to close family and friends.
The biggest thing this month is that Andersyn has become a non-screaming baby. I think we have finally passed the “hard” stage of infancy and any signs of colic or reflux seem to be gone. We are all so thankful! It’s been so fun starting to see her personality come out, which if I remember right is very similar to her big sister’s at this age – alert and wanting to see the world! I just continue to be in love with our sweet girl and can’t wait to see what this next month holds for her. I love my little Andi Joy!
