Week's beginning

Sarah Rochel was totally and utterly delectable over shabbos. Her voice is changing again - it's becoming much more tonally clear, more like a speaking voice than a series of pitched squeaks. She's back to saying 'abba' all the time - ALL the time. I'm not sure what she thinks it refers to. She says it when she eats, when she wakes up, when she's asleep in my arms and I put her down in the crib and she wakes up for a split second and then falls right back asleep, etc.

Possible Current Interpretations for "Abba":

I want Abba
I want Mommy
I want food from Mommy
Cuddle me, please!
Recognize my precociousness now!
I don't want to go to sleep yet!
I may poop in the distinct near future.
I love you!!!
Just a head's up: I'm planning on waking up every hour or so tonight, 'kay?

That last one is what it meant last night... Maybe a growth spurt? Our lack of ability to measure notwithstanding, Yoav think's she's definitely grown height-wise lately. She's just wonderful, and she's getting even more so. Yum!

Sorry I've been out of the loop. Our modem got fried after the snowstorm due to blackouts. A word of advice, many times ear infections are cause when baby lies back and drinks her bottle/nurses. It's advisable to prop her head up. If the liquid stays in the ear bacteria delvelop, hence ear infections. I've been doing this since her last ear infection, which I believe was around the same time as SR's last one and so far it's been working. Good luck and it's nice to be able to read your blog again.

Welcome back B! Was wondering where you'd gotten to... Yeah, I think you're right, and I've always tried to keep her upright for anything but mommymilk (mommy milk is antibacterial, so supposedly it's not as problematic if it makes it into the ear canal). Good to hear from you!
