A few photos before bedtime (at half seven, yes)

I've had complaints about the lack of posts and photos.

I've been busy/trying to sleep.

Whenever I say that things are getting better/easier, Amy says 'ha!, I don't think so' and decides to waken every hour and a half and refuse naps during the day. Which of course leaves me pulling my hair out/sobbing like a baby myself. That's not much fun for any of us. Poor Lee.

This weekend Amy decided that sleeping was babies and she wasn't going to do it...at all. On Sunday we took her for a walk and Lee managed to keep her sleeping for over 3 hours while I went upstairs to lie down...wide awake. Heartbreaking. Being over-tired isn't wonderful.

Also, she's decided that it's way more fun to look around her than it is to eat. She'll take a few sips, throw her head back and intently study anything nearby. 'Oooh, curtains...I love the curtains...cushions! wow, that's a great cushion!! oh hello ceiling, I love you!!' Thankfully when she throws her head back, she remembers to let go first! Little monkey.

She's doing better with her tummy time. I manage to distract her with music on my mobile phone and she soon forgets she hates lying on her tummy. She also rolled over from her tummy to her back last week for the first time. Clever little girl. Also, this past week every time she's placed on her back, her little legs go straight up in the air and she starts doing mini crunches. She's going to have great abs by the time she finally does manage to sit up!
 Ooh...those are my toes?
We're terrible parents. This is what our evenings look like...on the couch with laptops and the telly. She does love her bunny. We don't really let her watch TV all evening though she does look pretty glued to the screen!

She was at the baby clinic today to get her weight checked. The health visitor had been concerned about her weight at her last visit and wanted it checked before we go away on holiday. The nurse was happy with her weight gain and was impressed with how nicely she is covered for an exclusively breast fed baby and also how healthy and alert she is.

Hooray for a happy, healthy, chubby thighed baby!
