Thursday Baby Update: Movin’ and groovin’

Vegan Goodness:
Today we ate:

  • Breakfast: Smoothies for Dad and LP and apple slices and some toast with butter for Mom and LP
  • LP had some yogurt and apple at playgroup.
  • Lunch: Leftover potato and tempeh hash, leftover sweet potato and coconut puree and some pita chips with hummus.
  • Mom and LP had vanilla yogurt for a snack
  • Dinner: Pizza with Daiya cheese (on sale this month!)  Our pizzas both had onions and peppers, and one had also had olives, the other pineapple.
  • Mom and Dad had some more apple crisp with homemade ice cream.

Money Matters:
Today LP had playgroup in the morning and then we went on a walk to see the trains in the afternoon.  No money spent!

Thursday Baby Update:

The Amazing Winkle!

IP has started to really move!  She is rolling over in both directions (although it is somewhat sporadic).  She is enjoying tummy time more and has fun looking around at everyone (especially LP) when she is on the floor.  She is also having fun with toys!  She loves to grab her toys (like the winkle below) and she alternates between flinging them around and sticking them in her mouth.  She doesn’t limit her grabbing to toys alone.  She also loves to grab hair, shirts, etc. as I have learned the hard way. We have been having a blast playing with her.  LP still loves to try and teach her how to talk, and he also has enjoyed holding toys out for her to grab.

It is great to see her doing so much, but it does have a downside too.  Last night I walked into her room at 5 am because she was crying and she was due to eat.  I looked in the crib and saw a half-naked baby on her tummy, and that was not how I left her!  She had managed to get her arms out of her swaddle and her pajamas and then turn herself over.  The scary part was that her feet were still somewhat swaddled in the blanket.  So, we are done with the swaddle.  It makes me sad since she was just starting to really sleep well.  But, it has to happen since I don’t want to find her with her face smushed into her swaddle blanket in the morning.  We’ve tried some other swaddle blankets (the kind with velcro) but she just gets out of them super fast.  So, tonight we go cold-turkey (or cold-blankie as the case might be).  I’m crossing my fingers that all goes well.  We’ll just have to see.
