Friends to visit

This week Jenny came up to see us with her baby Jessica. She and Rebecca were so cute together although neither of them really acknowledged one another and spent most of the time sleeping. At least Jenny and I got to have a good chat.
On Sunday we had a BBQ with our NCT friends. It was so lovely to see everyone but again the babies mostly slept and didn't get a chance to play together at all!
Rebecca had a really bad night last night. She has been so good and seems to have gone back to newborn days of feeding every few hours. It's hard now that my brain had adjusted to waking up only once or twice.We think she could be teething as she is biting on everything, dribbles everywhere and has quite rosy cheeks. I hope it passes soon and she can sleep again, especially as Gareth is back to school tomorrow.

13 weeks old

We've had a busy week. Our bathroom is now finished and Gareth has put up both stair gates. They are a bit of a pain but necessary especially as our stairs are so steep. Rebecca is getting really good at holding things now and reaches out to take a toy. She is talking a lot more and has managed a few little giggles. She has started rolling to her left and can travel in a full circle on her mat now. Every time we look away when we look back she is in a different place. I hope it's not too soon that she starts to roll right over and move about even more because it's so easy at the moment. She is also getting really good at bed time and sleeps through until 6am with one feed. She went to bed with her bottle from Gareth today at a record early time of half 7pm, which is good as I start orchestra soon and will need her to feed with her dad.

We had a lovely day on Sunday when Rachael, James and their girls came to visit. We all had lunch thanks to Gem and Tim then went off to a farm. The girls were great with the babies and got in lots of cuddles. It was a very weird day really sunny one minute and quite cold and windy the next. It does feel like Autumn is on the way. I am so pleased Rebecca arrived when she did as the long days and short nights really helped me stay positive during night time feeds!

We had a nice break in Guernsey. I caught up with lots of friends and Rebecca got lots of cuddles from family. This week she just started really chatting and makes some good high-pitched sounds now. She loves her hands and we can't stop her sucking her thumb and trying to put her whole hand into her mouth. I just hope that she's not teething just yet as she's getting very dribbly.

Total exertion

Rebecca is trying so hard to waggle along her mat. But it takes some effort as you can hear! She's not getting far at the moment - hope it stays that way for a while.

Katie's visit

Katie came up to see us on Tuesday. It was so lovely to see her and catch up on everything. We've had so many visitors recently that we should be getting commission for bringing so many customers to the pub for lunch. Katie is very talented as you can see from her lovely pictures. I can't wait for the disc to see the rest of them!
