all smiles

Hameed asked me to take some pictures today since Sarah has grown into some of the cool tops I got her from Norway. I brought out the camera right after she woke up from a nap hoping she would co-operate for a few pictures and then she surprised me. She kept smiling while I was taking pictures it was so cute.

big girl

We got a bumbo seat for Sarah yesterday and she is totally digging it. Last night while she was sitting in it she discovered her feet. She tried so very hard to bend over and eat them. Silly me though she wanted to eat her sock so I took it of and gave it to her. She totally ignored the sock and kept bending over to get her foot. She was wiggling her toes like crazy. Maybe she though she could reach them easier that way.

We went for the 8 week health assessment today. Her state was pretty much what I had guessed. She weigh in at 4866 grams and is 58 cm long. She is growing along just fine. Average for weight and a big more then average for lenght. The health nurse was surprised I was still breastfeeding... she is weird.

In other news. My hair has been driving my crazy after Sarah was born. There was no need time to blow dry or straighten my hair and wearing it down just did not work. So last Saturday I got a quick cut and I'm loving it. The hair dresser asked me 3 times if I was really sure I wanted it that short. I guess it is not often someone want to go from waist long hair to short hair. Hameed don't mind I think. He just keep saying I look so different.

oh toys!

So of course the day after I posted that Sarah only care for a shiny screw, she discovered the toys on her swing. She even gave them a couple of smiles and the obligatory sneeze... I'm starting to wonder if my daughter is allergic to video cameras.

progress report

I have not been very good at updating this blog, mostly because when I do get a second to myself I like to spend it on important stuff like pee or eat...

Sarah is growing like a weed. Not sure how much she weight official now, but she is 5 kg on our bathroom scale. We saw a 3 week old today and next to him she was a giant baby.

She is totally cute and have been smiling back at us and 'talking' to us for a few weeks now. She is also able to stay awake for a bit longer at the time and she seem to like bappa's crazy out of tune singing.

We got her a swing which she has HATED until I one day this week I plopped her in there because I needed to eat something RIGHT there and then and she was not ready to sleep. I was in such a hurry that i forgot to turn the swing on - and wouldn't you know it she loved it. So basically she just do not like the motion. Sitting in it is fine.

She is a weirdo though. There is a couple of hanging toys on the swing, which she has shown no interest in. The toys are on a branch sort of which is attached to the swing with a shiny screw and that screw is so beautiful and interesting apparently that is kept her fascinated for 20 min yesterday...

Sarah has also showed that she is quit a lady. She is capable of shooting poop halfway across the room. For some reason she does this mostly when daddy change her. She also showed of at dads work. I took her into Hameed's work place so his co-worker could see her. Hameed took her from me and held her up so everyone could see, which of course promoted Sarah to let out a loud explosive poop.

Most days we go for a walk. Sarah loves sitting in the baby bjorn. It is getting colder now, but still pretty nice. So we just rug up in all the comfy knitted clothes bestemor made and out we go.

Going for walks is pretty tiring so it is good the knitted clothes are also quit comfy to sleep in.
