5 week update for Sally

So it's been a few weeks since Sally completely upended my world.

Some milestones to look at:

Child's Age
Mastered Skills (most kids can do)

Emerging Skills (half of kids can do)

Advanced Skills (a few kids can do)
1 month Lifts head when lying on tummy
Responds to sound
Stares at faces
• Follows objects briefly with eyes
• Vocalizes: oohs and aahs
• Can see black-and-white patterns
Smiles, laughs
• Holds head at 45-degree angle
2 months • Vocalizes: gurgles and coos
• Follows objects across field of vision
• Notices his hands
Holds head up for short periods
Smiles, laughs
• Holds head at 45-degree angle
• Makes smoother movements
Holds head steady
• Can bear weight on legs
• Lifts head and shoulders when lying on tummy (mini-pushup)

She's a little bit prodigal as she can do most of these things - not so much on the smoother movements but most of the advanced stuff! I think it makes up for her petite size. But I did score some awesome nappies because they suit her:

Cushie Tushies had some nappies made a little too slim, so I picked some up for half price. Given that we plan on cloth-nappying for a very long time, it's a pretty good deal.

I was going to write about stuff - the "my world" part of that opening sentence, her progress so far, how breastfeeding is going, the hell of the first few weeks, what our routine is, and so on. But she's awake and hungry so off I go to fak. Feeding a kid, feeding at keyboard...
