Mom Update

Dreamer is making some advancements this week. I want to write them down for my own memory
Dreamer dreaming
more than anything as these minute changes, so significant now, are likely to blur.

She's been tracking motion with her eyes, but now her head follows and she's able to follow motion from across the room. She's gurgling much more often, making cute almost word sounds. A funny moment was when Ryan's mom said something to her about coming to stay with Grandma when she's older and she made a sound that sounded like, "Yeah." We all burst out laughing.

Her favorite toy right now is her little plastic Tigger (like from Winnie the Pooh.) She isn't as enthusiastic about him though as she is about faces, especially Ryan's and mine. It's very easy now to get her to break out in that heart melting toothless grin. She also has started staring at her feet.

Her favorite song is, by far, "The Lion Sleeps Tonight." She calms down almost instantly when I sing it... hilariously, not when Dad tries to sing it to her though. That makes her cry.

She's apparently advanced in how long she's holding her head up at a time. Someone commented on it over the weekend and looking it up she's doing pretty well (not majorly advanced, but by a few weeks) there. This doesn't surprise me at all because she's always been a bit ahead in "large motor development." From the day she was born she could roll from her back to her side, for example. 

Ryan and I are getting good at interpreting her cries ("Oh, that's a wet diaper."or "I think that's a hungry cry!") I didn't realize it but when I was looking up developmental milestones that's actually a milestone for her. I thought that was us, as parents, learning her. And, on one hand, that's true. However, apparently it's also her taking a step towards language development! That makes sense, but I didn't realize that before. She's learning how to communicate her needs though via noise, so it makes sense that that is a first step towards language.

By the way, not a milestone for Dreamer but something interesting about this week; we have to be careful when we open the balcony doors because there may be a monkey in the neighborhood. Ah, India.
