Keziah is starting to give us a few little giggles here and there but I have yet to see a gut-wrenching fit of giggles from her. But Erik claims he had her going pretty good the other night when I went out to run some errands. I'm not sure I believe him :) Here he was trying to recreate it and, of course, Keziah was stale-faced!
I FINALLY decided on a baby-carrier. After a long time debating about what I wanted and then spending a few weeks with both a mei tai and a sling on loan, I finally decided on this Baby Hawk mei tai from Coastal Sling Baby Carriers. It's so pretty for one thing and very comfortable. Not as simple to operate as the sling but I'm getting the hang of it. Keziah seems a little small to stick her legs out of the side yet so I crossed her legs and tucked them inside and she seemed very comfortable.
Another phenomenon at playgroup today was Micah's sudden protectiveness of his sister. This came out of nowhere! He was concerned for Keziah several times when other kids would get too close to her or start touching her. He even said to one little girl, "that's my sister!"
Well I'm off to try to have a little nap while the kids are both sleeping. Even though I've been able to get Keziah to consistently go from 10:30 pm to 7:30 am without eating, she still wakes up frequently in between for her soother. Last night I'm sure I was up every hour stuffing that thing in her mouth. Kelly and I were talking last night about weaning our girls from their soothers already and after such a restless sleep last night, I'm feeling even more compelled. Perhaps I'm better off doing it now than having a repeat of Micah's soother-weaning escapades...
