It’s been a while since I gave you a Joley update, so here it is.
Joley is this close to walking on her own. She walks so well with a push toy but is too scared to do those steps on her own. She cruises everywhere though. There is no keeping her down. She pulls up on everything. She now learned how to get herself back down too (thank goodness) so she is up and down constantly.
We lowered her mattress. She was standing up all the time and holding onto the edge and crying. I was up several times a night getting her to lay back down. That hasn’t happened since we moved the mattress down, but she also just started to get herself down from standing on her own. So, who knows why she isn’t doing it. I am just glad she isn’t.
She has been sleeping from 8-9p until 5-6am. It is so nice! I really need to start getting more sleep for myself now that she is sleeping better. She is taking 2 naps. One short one in the morning and a longer one in the afternoon. We have a pretty good schedule now and I love it!
She feeds herself all finger foods now. I have introduced green beans and she (surprisingly) liked them. Johnny hated green veggies so I am glad. I am going to make peas next and we will see how that goes. Right now, she eats 2 solid meals a day but I think we will be doing 3 soon because she is wanting it more. She loves her puffs and enjoys the occasional animal cracker. She drinks well out of a cup and loves to drink from a straw.
She is still in 3-6mos clothing and they fit well. There has been one outfit that she has outgrown… about 3 days after I bought it. I think I probably shrunk it in the wash to be honest. But, everything else fits well. She has no clothes for this winter because I am not sure what size to buy. She has itty bitty feet… we tried a 3-6mos pair on her yesterday and they were about 3/4″ too big.
She is such a fun baby. She smiles all the time and laughs about everything. She thinks Johnny is soooo funny. She says mama and dada with meaning now. She waves and says bye-bye and gives “five” too.
She still has two teeth but I think she is working on more. Poor baby. She is getting a ton more hair and it is light. Her eyes are a darker blue than Johnny’s but actually getting lighter.
Her favorite thing to do is still to nurse… and I am more than happy with that.
She is amazing. My baby girl.
