I haven’t updated on Anwen’s progress for 3 months… I’m not even sure where these 3 months have gone. In a whirlwind of craziness.
She has changed so much and settled now. More and more of her personality shines through each day.
So how do things currently stand?
Weight: Anwen is still overweight. I don’t pay too much attention to how much she actually weighs but I do know that she does now weigh quite a bit more than Enfys.
Clothing Size: We are still in 9-12… just. It won’t be long before we make the switch to 12-18. Anwen does wear 18-24 month vests because they just seem more comfortable for her.
Shoe Size: Still no shoes here.
Nappy Size: Still in 5. Will be for a while longer yet.
Teeth: She has a lot of sharp gnashers that draw blood when she clamps her jaw down. Note to self, DO NOT, under any circumstances, put your finger in her mouth.
Music: Anwen adores music. We’ve recently added an Echo to our house. She looks straight at it when we say “Alexa” and waits for the music to start.
Attention: She still loves attention. As long as someone says “hiya” to her she is happy.
Being carried: I’ve recently hired a beautiful Wompat carrier from It’s a Sling Thing. Anwen loves it. She’s happy on my back preparing dinner while listening to Alanis Morrissett.
Food: She likes to eat. No-ones food is safe while Anwen is around.
Silence: Yep, she still hates silence.
Being alone: She screams blue murder when she’s left alone in a room. She watches me leave then turns on the water works.
Bedtime: She’s always asleep by 7pm.
Wake Time: Generally around the 7am mark.
Naps: 1x 20 minute after breakfast, the a longer sleep around 2pm for around 60-90 minutes.
Bottles: Anwen has 3 8oz bottles a day. 1 on waking, 1 before bedtime and a dream feed around 9.30pm. We’ve tried to drop this one but we end up awake in the wee hours.
Food: Anwen has 3 full meals a day, breakfast, lunch and dinner with plenty of snacks.
Exciting things this month
Baby-led feeding: Anwen has realised that finger foods are fun. She first discovered it by pinching Enfys’ chocolate chip brioche. She wolfed the whole thing down.
Crawling: Anwen is almost crawling. But she’s struggling to get her left leg out of her way.
Speech: Anwen says “Hiya” and waves.
