|a little bit of a smile|
We took Little One to get her next set of immunisations this morning; she behaved so well and only cried briefly (although her crying at the first jab in the leg almost got me started. Certainly brought tears to my eyes, then I pulled myself together). Anyway, she now weighs 6.1kg and measures 60.5cm. That means she has gained about 800g in the past month and grown 2.5cm. She is wearing clothes size 3 months (although she has already grown out of some of her 3 month size outfits) and starting to wear some size 3-6 months clothes.
She usually has five feeds per day and sleeps all night, from around 10-11pm to 8-8.30am.

She is still not very interested in toys yet; she pays attention to things that make noises or when people show her something and move it around, but she doesn't try to hold them or put things in her mouth. She does grab hold of things, though; she pulls at her clothes, pulls her bibs off, grabs hold of my clothes or fingers or the ribbon of her dummy and pulls up her sheet or blanket. She often opens and closes her hands, clenches her fists, seems to examine her hands and fingers and clasps them together on her chest. When she's awake, she also kicks her legs a lot, stretches them out and clenches her toes.
She doesn't cry a lot, just when she gets hungry and has to wait to be fed, sometimes when she needs to burp and feels uncomfortable and when she's very sleepy but not yet asleep. And when she gets vaccinated, of course. Sometimes a sudden loud noise wakes her up and upsets her. She loves to be rocked to sleep, walked around, bounced and jiggled, like all babies, probably.
