Goodbye Moby

I sold my Moby Wrap today to a mom who tried another style of wrap and hated it, so I hope she'll love the Moby as much and B and I did.

I can barely remember her being this little. B loved to wear her in the Moby and I'm hoping he'll try out the Sling or Mei Tai and maybe like those too. We already know that the Ergo isn't a favorite of his, despite me loving it.

I will recommend the Moby to anyone. I just found that now that she's heavier and longer, I reach for my other carriers a lot more.

I love how excited Anna gets when I wear her. I've been doing a back carry more and more around the house. Some nights that's how dinner gets made!

I just wish I had such comfy baby wearing devices when my first two were little. I had to make due with a ring sling and Snugli.

They're only this little once. Hold them close to you. You won't look back and think, "I wish I hadn't held my baby so much."

RA RA SHISH BOOM BAH

So Anna has babbling down now. I love listening to her talk. From Ra Ra Ra to happy screams, she's full of all sorts of noises. Even just the silent mouth movements are funny.

Anna is a pretty sensitive baby who scares easily. Daddy's sneezes make her cry. She is also a fairly light sleeper most of the time. Most of her night is spent in our bed as she's still waking up every 2-3 hours to eat.

No crawling, but she moves around by twisting and bum scooting.

I love this girl so much. She is such a joy.

Teeth!


Teeth!
Originally uploaded by sew_crafty_girl75
Well, there haven't been huge leaps and bounds since I last posted, but one exciting thing that HAS happened, is that Anna got her first teeth! It took me surprise as I hadn't seen them in the gum before the first one broke through. I just happened to put my finger in her mouth when my friend was talking about her baby getting his first tooth and lo and behold, something sharp was in there!

The first few days of tooth #1 breaking through meant lots of nighttime eating and daytime crankiness. A couple days later tooth #2 broke through. It's been 1 1/2 weeks since they came through and they're very slowly emerging. Teething has also meant a lot of yucky diapers. Anna has become a super pooper, going about 6 times a day.

Her 6 1/2 month stats are 15 pounds, 8 oz. She's fallen to the 50% for weight now. No major growth spurt lately.
