Letter to Emily – May

What a month May has been.  You have had lots of visits with family, spending an afternoon with the grandparents while Mummy and Daddy got to go out for a few hours (bliss!) and then visits from the other grandparents in the last week as well as both your uncles – everyone was in town!  It was a little overwhelming having all these new faces around at first, but after a few tears you adjusted and were happily smiling at everyone and crawling around the place.

Letter to my daughter

You’re moving so much faster now.  The crawling has picked up pace, you pull up on everything you can reach and love standing at the glass sliding door to the backyard and watching the cat outside.  You’ve taken a few tumbles, had a few bruises, but your balance keeps improving and we’re lucky you worked out to fall onto your bum first before your head hits the ground!  We’ve had more teeth come through – you have six now!

Letter to my daughter, crawling

Most of the time you are sleeping better, we still have the occasional rough night, but most nights you go down fairly easily and it’s getting closer (and more consistently) to 6am before you get up each day.  On weekends you love coming into our room and having a play on the bed before heading downstairs for your breakfast.  You’re still on 4 bottles a day, but your solids have increased and you’re still loving pretty much everything we put in front of you.  Day naps have dropped back to two a day and as long as we get you down in time they are lovely, longer naps.  If you’re naps get stuffed up though you get a bit cranky, so we try and keep to them as best we can.

This month you are such an active, happy and mostly contented bub with the biggest grin for everyone.

Love you lots and lots and lots.

    The crawling photos look great and I’m glad we got a good one of the three of you all smiling.
