Oh, also forgot to mention in the Abby Update at 6 Weeks some of her developmental milestones.
She’s smiling now (has been for a while actually) and making lots of those cute baby sounds. She even tries to have a conversation with you if you talk to her.
We’ve named some of her more interesting sounds: the Horse – a rolling plurrr sound; the Shopping Trolley – a rusty squeeeeaak; and the croaky Mafia Boss – ehhh, ehh, ehhhhhh!
Her musical mobile has been a great distraction when she’s grizzly and we need to put her down for a little while. She’s also fond of playing on her playmat, often kicking and punching the toys while letting out sounds of enjoyment.
Her eye coordination is still a little off and she ends up a bit cross-eyed when trying to follow things. She can support her neck quite well already – something that she could do from the first day, surprising the pediatrician during her exam at the hospital.
There is however a fine line between play time and over-tired time so Happy Abby can become Crabby Abby pretty quickly! (Unfortunately Abby is one of those names that rhymes with lots of other adjectives like shabby, flabby, scabby, drabby…)
