I know it’s over a month since last time. John’s sister, Karen, and her husband, Guy have just been out and spent almost 2 weeks with us. They arrived on 25 August and left on Friday, 7 September. My parents arrive on Monday (10 September) and stay until 1 October.
Kirsten has hit 3 months and now weighs 13 lbs 6.5 oz (6.08 kilos). On Thursday she learnt to roll from her back to her front and gets very angry to find herself on her tummy. Now we’ve got to work on rolling back the other way. As you can see from the pictures we’ve also got her a bouncer. She has only been in a couple of times so far and lasts no more than 5 minutes. I have to admit that she already loves the television.
Kirsten also now sleeps through most of the night. She’s typically asleep by around 8.30 pm and then wakes for her feed anywhere between 3 and 5 am. Usually it’s around 4 am. The problem is that half the time she doesn’t want to go back to sleep after that so that is something else I’m working on. In the last few weeks she has at least started to take a few naps during the day which means she’s not quite as grouchy in the evenings as she has been. Not that I’m biased or anything but when she’s happy she’s got a beautiful smile. She’s also quite a rare baby here in that she’s blonde haired and blue eyed. John and I keep joking that we could make a fortune using her as a baby model!!
Anyway hope this brings you all a little more up to date. Best wishes to everyone and thanks for all your well wishes too.
John hits the big 4 0 on 22 September. I’m not really sure how he feels about that.
