Baby Log: Week 20

Sunday, January 10, 2010

Boogie is 20 weeks old! My goodness, where did the time go?! This week Marlie reminded us that she is getting to be a B-I-G girl with her own little personality, her own likes and dislikes, and her own quirks, which included keeping us up three nights in a row! Let the Good Times roll:
Marlie at 20 weeks
  • Marlie can sit up on her own for 10-20 seconds at a time! See photo evidence to the right <-------- span="">
  • In addition to waking up every 30 minutes at night, she is also waging war on bedtime. She hollers...cries big, fat crocodile tears. the.works. It's quite a performance. Maybe she'll become an actress.
  • She has become so tactile. She has to run her hands over everything. I love it when she touches my face while nursing (even when puts her fingers up my nose!)
  • She likes to look at shadows and stares at the sunlight streaming through the windows. I hope she is always this fascinated by the simple things.
  • One morning as her daddy stood over her crib, Marlie said "ha-da." I heard it and thought to myself, oh she's making more sounds. He heard it, and swore she was saying hi, daddy! I'm no dream-crusher.
  • We had two wins this week: a $10 Amazon gift card from Blogs Her Color and a Grow-A-Head from Sugar Pop Ribbons!
  • This is the last weekend of Granny Marge's visit so we went outlast night for some Tex-Mex. I couldn't have any cheese, but the food was so good I didn't miss it at all. It was a nice evening. We've really enjoyed her stay. Until next time grandma, we'll miss you!dinner with grandma

I can't tell, does she have teeth already? Vivi is 15 months and only has 4 teeth! She does a pretty good job of eating with just those four, but still, it's heading towards ridiculous. I guess as long as she has a full set of teeth when she's ready for college, we're all good. When you say Marlie touches your face a lot, does she scratch you at all? Vivi scratches me a lot, but screams bloody murder and thrashes about when I try to cut her nails. Still, she has such delicate fingers, I love her touch.

I'm so glad reading your great post!
Loving that she already can sit up her own for 1o-20sec; and that ha-ha
sounds like a HAPPY little one.She is just adorable!
lots of love and hugs hugs

Oh yeah, she scratches, but it only hurts if her nails haven't been clipped. I cut them while she's nursing...she's more pliable then, LOL!

Unknown said...

...oh, I forgot to add that she doesn't have any teeth yet, they are still working their way through on the bottom

I love that sweetness when they touch your face when they are nursing. Hopefully she doesn't turn into my baby who know feels all over my body which gives me the heebie jeebies, lol. I would be happy if she would stick to my face!

WOW time does fly!

Look at how cute she is.

With my kids, whenever the sleep schedule was wonky, it meant a growth spurt or developmental change was right around the corner.

Sometimes BIG changes, sometimes small.

Fantastic picture with Granny!

Wow! She may be saying "daddy" but she sure does look like Mommy!

Teresa @ ♥ Too Many Heartbeats ♥ said...

I just want to reach through the screen and hug her tight! She is TOO cute!
