It's official.. she's HUGE. I've been a bit 'meh' about bothering to get this little chunk weighed. She eats well, sleeps well and seems happy enough so I didn't really see the point. But one Tuesday I realised I had a chance to pop down to the local baby session, stripped her off and popped her on the health visitor's scales. 17lbs 3oz. At four and a half months old. She's on the 91st percentile. HUGE. No wonder she's already in 6-9 month clothes. The health visitor mentioned that they might need to put her on a diet (sod off) but she's doing well.
We started her on a little bit of food here and there. She devours porridge with apple or strawberry puree, and loves carrot, parsnip and sweet potato. We've also moved her into Vivienne's room which we never thought we'd do. We moved her cot in as a trial but Vivienne was so happy to discover it there that she cried and said it was the best thing ever. It obviously won't be forever but for now we get to keep the spare room and Vivienne has a little buddy in her room with her so it's perfect. She sleeps through every night now from 8.30pm-7.20am so why not?
In other news we've been trying to sort the house out and finish decorating (we have been living here for nearly two years now, after all) but that'll be another post. Work, for me, is getting busy again so I'm savouring the last few slower days and trying to balance work and down time with the baby. It's fab to be getting back into everything but I sense it won't be long before I'm teetering on the edge of chaos like I am every Summer very soon. We're also a week away from Sylvie's 'Welcome to the World' party that we're throwing instead of a christening. We've asked my sister and her partner and our friends to be 'godparents' and it's basically going to be a chill out day with good food and lots of prosecco and gin. Fingers crossed for sunshine!
