You know that thing the say to make you feel better about your post pregnancy body. “It took you 9 months to grow the baby and your body to change, so it will take just as long for it to recover” Yeah sure it kind of makes you feel a bit better at 8 weeks postpartum. . . but when you are 9 months postpartum and you actually looked better at 8 weeks well then it kinda hurts. ARGHH. Anyway this post isn’t about me.
Little miss Audrey. She is so clever.
She has finally got through a top tooth. Seemed like it was taking it’s good ol’ time to make its appearance.
Her Aunty (my sister in law) who was visiting for 6 weeks over Christmas really hoped to see her walk before she left. I told her at the beginning that it was a long shot due to her age. Well on the night we were giving her a farewell, Audrey decided she would stand up, let go and take a step or two from her Aunty towards her Dad!
She is doing lots of standing without holding lasting about 3 to 5 seconds.
She also enjoys clapping and pointing her finger.
Still trying to work on her holding her own bottle.
Her hair is growing rapidly.
I see her smiles ALL DAY LONG yet, pull out the camera, and have the hardest time trying to capture them.
Photo shoots are exhausting! Mum kept yelling “NO!”, “Stop that!”, “Don’t move” and, of course, screeching “SMILE!!!!!!!” But I march to the beat of my own drum and I wasn’t taking any of that nonsense.
