The biggest social development this month is that she started attending the childcare at the gym. The first time she cried when I left (when they took her from the car seat), but they never called me to come get her so I consider it a success. They said she ended up settling, then cried again before finally falling asleep in the swing. She's usually ready for a nap when I drop her off so I know any crying is just tired baby cries and I try not to let wear on me too much.
The second time, I don't think they said she cried much at all. They said she slept a little with one of the worker's rocking her then woke after 30minutes and then played with the other babies doing tummy time on the floor. Now if only I could get the courage to leave her sister! (baby steps)
And a big thank you to the readers who reminded me last month that insurance now covers breast pumps, my nice shiny new one arrived on Thursday!
Still loves being read to. She got Chicka Chicka Boom Boom in her Easter Basket and loves when I read it to her, though, she really enjoys any book. She loves when we sing to her, still cracks up with Patty Cake, but enjoys Ashlynn's "shows" of Twinkle Twinkle and Itsy Bitsy Spider. But if you want the best baby giggles... airplane. She screeches and giggles the loudest. If I got any monies worth out of our Gymboree membership when Ashlynn still wasn't mobile it was purely just for learning the "fly, fly, fly our planes"song and "Noble Duke of York".
This month has been by far the easiest. I can successfully get to where ever we need to go and basically never experience a meltdown. I did my first shopping wearing Kenley and pushing Ashlynn, which was successful and will probably happen more often now that weather is starting to get nicer. I think things will start to get really breezy once she's able to sit on her own and there is less baby on my hip while I try to accomplish other things because I feel guilty always having her stuck in the jumperoo or laying on her playmat. Then again, that will only mean mobility is approaching that much quicker!
