My Chunky Little Monkey
Busby was finally weighed today! After weeks of me guessing how much weight she’s been gaining, the Health Visitor put us out of our misery… She’s now a hefty 9lb 11oz!!! She’s put on almost 3lb since she was last weighed 4 weeks ago. She’s also grown another cm since my post last Thursday, so she’s up to 53cm; she’s going to be a giant by the time she turns 1! Oh, and her head circumference has increased by nearly 5cm; I’m thankful I don’t have to push her out again…!
Last night she slept for 6 hours; admittedly this was on me, as she hasn’t wanted to sleep in the Moses basket the past two nights, but it’s still amazing. I think she can sense my current anxiety, and the wanting to be on me most (all) of the time is her way of communicating with me; a silent “It’s ok Mummy. I’m fine. I shall sleep/smile/babble now.” (Also, constant clinginess is apparently very common around the 7 week mark.) I feel so lucky to have her in our lives, and love watching her grow, learn and change every day.
