Trying to turn over

Friday, October 29th, 2004

Lauren’s doing very well trying to turn over. She pushes her bum up, or tries to bring her shoulders over. Won’t be long now, until she rolls over.

Lots of laughing

Friday, October 29th, 2004

It’s pretty easy to make Lauren laugh these days. She’s so cute. Nicole’s quite good at making her laugh. I think it’s the hair that tickles so much.

6.6 kg

Wednesday, October 27th, 2004

We had Lauren weighed today and she’s 6.6 kg! A good weight really. Her skull has closed now, which is a bit early, but her head is still growing, so that’s a good thing.

Sucking thumb

Monday, October 25th, 2004

Lauren’s found her thumb, and is making ample use of it, by sticking it in her mouth. Evan never sucked his thumb at all, in fact, Evan didn’t do lots of things that Lauren does, like sleep well, keep quiet, use a pacifier, or enjoy the company of others.

Sweaty feet!

Sunday, October 24th, 2004

Hey, Lauren has my sweaty feet! You can look at her feet and see the beads of sweat forming, and kissing or stroking her feet are like touching a very soft wet napkin! She’s so great!

Conversations

Sunday, October 10th, 2004

Lauren and I often have these really great conversations. She’ll coo, and I’ll coo back. It’s really very sweet. I’ve just put the audio online. In fact, there are two. Check out:

Conversation 1
Conversation 2

New cot

Saturday, October 9th, 2004

We built up Lauren’s cot today and she’s sleeping in it right now. Evan had a great time setting up the cot (see Evan’s blog for that). She seems to have adjusted to it pretty well. She loves the little mobile and the sound it makes. Even more alert than usual today and she and her Mum had a great time at a cafe today.

Controlled movements

Friday, October 8th, 2004

Lauren’s developing quite well now. She’s managing to control her movements much better these days. For instance, she’ll reach out and grab the toys dangling from the jungle gym, or grab Taz’ trunk and stick it into her mouth. She’s also trying hard to stay upright when I hold her up, or when sitting up.

Giggling

Wednesday, October 6th, 2004

I got an audio snippet of Lauren giggling tonight. It seems she’s starting to get ticklish. I’ll try to post the audio clip to the homepage.

Lauren went to bed tonight without a peep, which is so amazing, considering the huge problems we had getting Evan to sleep. She’s such an angel.

Grabbing things

Wednesday, October 6th, 2004

Lauren surprised us tonight by actively grabbing out for one of Evan’s plush toys (Taz – from tasmania) and sticking its trunk into her mouth! She’s so amazing!
