She's 4 months old!

I can't actually believe she's 4 months so as I've been super slack on the old baby update posts I thought it was about time that I got my act together and got one sorted. 



Freya has thankfully been a blissful baby, she's slept through from about 2 months, waking for a feed about 11pm and despite the few frustrating catnap days is sleeping well throughout the day as well. With a busy and noisy toddler in tow this is a lifesaver. 

As always now we we've reached 4 months theres been the odd murmur about weaning, now Im have no interest in starting a when to wean debate but for me it's 6 months, we did the same with D (who was a big and very hungry baby!) and will be doing the same with Freya. I intend to go down the Baby Led Weaning route again with Freya so there will be no rush and we'll take things at her pace. 



Eating wise we have now moved completely to bottles, the breastfeeding, pumping and topping up just wasn't workable with a 3 year old to look after as well. Freya has reflux so has to be held upright after feeds so  this meant I was almost constantly feeding Freya whilst trying to distract D who was desperate for a bit of attention. I found giving up breastfeeding hard, at first I was really worried about people's opinions but I also found I missed the closeness. I always hold F close when we feed but it's never quite the same as feeding your baby with your own milk, That said the decision was the right one for us as a family and F is doing just great. 

Weight wise Freya is now just over 13lb and hanging out on the 25th Percentile. She's quite a bit smaller than D was at the same age so it's a bit of novelty have a dinky one this time round. I've had the odd comment about her being small but she's doing perfectly - eating well and judging by the beautiful smiles she treats us to, very very happy. 

Freya is also starting to play now, grabbing and reaching for her toys, Ds hair or in fact anything which catches her eye. She's rolled from front to back a handful of times and when doing tummy time is starting to push with her legs and lift her bottom up. D didn't crawl until 10 months but with a big sister to follow and play with I have a feeling we won't be waiting that long for Freya. 



No teeth at the moment although with the continual stream of goop that covers us all and the house I suspect there may be some on their way!

She's also found her voice and we are treated to some wonderful screeching and chatting throughout the day. I love this age when they are starting to be more aware of whats around them and trying to communicate. 

I think my favourite thing about the last 4 months has been watching how Daisy has responded to her new little sister. She absolutely adores her and Freya is constantly watching her and you can see she can't wait to get involved in her games. I'll never forget we were at soft play a few weeks ago.......
D - Im sooooo excited!
Me - Are you excited to be at soft play, we haven't been for a while have we?
D - No Im so excited to have a little sister!
D also has a little routine where she has a quick hold of F before we go downstairs in the morning smothers her in (sometimes quite frankly terrifying) cuddles at least 20,546 times a day!



All in all I really couldn't have asked for a happier, more contented and dare I say it easier baby, we had a pretty easy ride with D at this age and thankfully it looks like F is going to be the same. That said I'm very well aware that at 4 months everything could and may well change!

  1. To properly blend your extensions you will need some tools, including micro rings and Hair Extensions. If you buy the wrong length of hair extension, any hair salon can help you fix this problem. They can trim your hair and match the cut with the extension or hair piece. Short hair pieces are a little trickier to blend seamlessly, however, this is not impossible. The trick is to choose extensions that are not too long. If you really want the long extensions, one way to ensure the lengths blend well together is to use layer-blending wefts.
