My hands work!

Eliza is learning to bat at things with her hands. She’s not great at it yet, but it’s fun to watch her work at it. Finally, all those things that hang down from all the baby gear are useful!!!

And update on the post-shot trauma: she had a freakout yesterday afternoon, but has been fine today. Last night she slept for her longest stretch to date: from 8:30 p.m. to 5:00 a.m., then again from 5:30 to almost 10:00. And she has napped throughout the day. I think the vaccinations took a lot out of her.

The sling rules

So I started “wearing” Eliza yesterday in a sling and she really loved it. She fell asleep in there, all snug, while I took the ornaments off the Christmas tree. It looks uncomfortable to see her all squished up in there, but I guess it feels like being in the womb. I’m going to try and use it for a little while very day to get her used to it. That way, hopefully I can take her with me to some meetings and such, and she’ll be content to lie against my tummy. I’m lucky I have a job and work in a department where bringing my baby is okay (at least, once in a while). My department chair has even joked about getting a pack n’ play for her office. 🙂
