Wow, here we are again with the latest Elarna update! I feel like I only just wrote the 6 month update and yet I'm writing her 7 month update, I keep wondering how is that even possible?! As you know it's been a hectic month with moving and settling in but thankfully things are starting to settle down slightly and normal routine is resuming to a degree.
My little girl really does cheer me up, she is truly THE most smiliest baby ever, she will just grin and grin all day, it is actually the most gorgeous thing ever! She does also have a pair of lungs of her though, my god this girl can scream and wail like something else, if she doesn't get what she wants immediately she starts the most bizarre wailing and whinging and then it builds into a crescendo until I have to get my arse into gear to determine what it is she wants, haha. I can tell that I'm going to have my work cut out with this princess!
We have had a couple of big developments in the last month *insert drum roll here*.....we have a little toothy peg!! It actually came through not long after writing the last update, I made the cardinal mistake of thinking we got away quite lightly and I guess we did but as soon as I started saying that she had been ok she went to the grumps and 3-4 wake ups a night, that will teach me to feel slightly smug ha! She has the 2nd one starting to show in her gums and the sleepless nights have started again so I'm hoping the little buggers comes through soon! Judging by the pictures below though you would forgiven for thinking that she could ever be grumpy!
Also this month she has become a right little speed demon with the crawling (much to Alfie's dismay as she is totally into touching his toys!), it's reached the stage where I look away for a few seconds and find she's on the other side of the room!
In these updates I always like to talk about the sibling relationship. I recently wrote about the issues that I have been having. On reflection and reading that post I probably do Alfie a discredit, I make him sound awful and he's not, it's just a very small amount of time that he's like this, other times, as these photos show that he can be very caring and sweet with her. The other morning I found him reading to her while she was in her cot, so cute.
In the last few days this little monkey has also been finding that her legs and arms can do other things than crawl. I put her down for a little nap in the afternoon and when she woke I went into her room to find she had pulled herself up in her cot and was pleased as punch with her achievement!! She stood there for a good 5 minutes so I could snap a photo before her little legs finally gave way. I reckon I might have an early walker on my hands! We shall what happens in the next couple of months.
In other news and I don't usually like to talk about myself in these updates but I am so gutted about my hair. I really thought that I had got away this time without losing much but it would appear it has taken a few months for my hormones to sort themselves out and clearly it has taken a toll on my hair. I could probably knit a small jumper the amount of hair that is falling out, it's absolutely pants. I am so thin around the sides of my head, it's awful and I now have a ton of baby hair growing so basically my hair just looks horrendous at the moment, wahhhh! I remembered I had some nourkrin tablets that I was kindly sent a while ago so I'm taking those and hoping that they will promote some hair growth and my hair will be back to looking ok soon........please, please, please!!
Thanks for reading and I'll be back again next month with Elarna's 8 month update! I wonder what they next 4 weeks have in store for us.
