How's everyone doing? Are you all ready for Christmas?
This is the first year we have been so organised, we have all our presents bought and wrapped already, usually we are still wrapping on Christmas eve. Our tree and decorations went up on the 1st and it looks gorgeous, just like a santa's grotto, don't think we have a spare space on walls or ceilings. Kady just loves all the lights and tinsel etc. Her wee face just lights up when she sees them.
We have been saying for months that we weren't getting Kady much this year as she will be too little to understand what's going on but when it came to wrapping the pressies we realised we have went way overboard with her pressies, we just kept getting little bits and pieces whenever we went shopping and it's really mounted up.
We have spent more than double the amount we usually spend on pressies for family and friends, we bought everyone the usual gifts from us and also a little personalised gift like a glass or mug saying Auntie so and so and Uncle so and so etc from Kady, we decided this is the only year we will be doing this coz there was about 16 of them, just glad we didn't buy them all in one go
What's everyone doing for Christmas? We usually have family over or go to family for dinner but this year we have decided to just have dinner ourselves as it's our first Christmas with Kady, we will do our usual rounds in the morning though.
She's been teething since about 12 weeks and still hasn't got one through yet, you can see a little white line on her gum but it hasn't broken through yet, so i think it might be here for christmas.
She'll be 7 months on Boxing Day.
Is it normal for them to hate being on their tummy? She does, she won't roll over on it and when i give her some tummy time she gets so frustrated and just cries.
One last question before i go. In the first couple months whenever i expressed a bottle for Kady she would gulp it down, now she won't touch it, Michael has tried, his mam has tried, we've tried different bottles, cups etc, she'll bite down on them and just get a little dribble but won't drink from anything but the breast. Michael's mam is itching to have her for an overnight stay and it would be nice for us to have a proper night out instead of only a couple of hours. She will eat her solids fine from her Granny but won't touch the milk, does anyone have any tips on what else i can do?
I think i'd better go now as i've rambled on enough.
Take care all,
