Mouse News Edition 1: 18082008

Sophie develops and grows and changes so quickly it is sometimes hard to remember what she was like even a week ago.

She's now trying very hard to crawl, and she can sometimes move forward a little by accident. Like, she'll be windmilling around uncoordinated, and then just by chance the head, arms, and legs all go in the correct order and she'll flop forward a few inches. She'll then get this mega-surprised look on her face. Which is soon followed by a "hm-now-how-did-i-do-that" kind of quizzical grimace. Reverse gear and side turns is not a problem at all though, she's a regular little clock hand (read: spinning round and round).

She has also recently discovered her toes, previously it was only her fingers - so there is a new addition to her nom-ming repertoire. Not just the hands but also the feet. Little contortionist.

Food now interests her more than milk. We just tried the Munchkin Fresh Food Feeder on her and it was a roaring success. She whined when I took it away and her eyes were as big as saucers trying to figure out where her mean mummy has hidden her newest chewy toy.

She has also been extra cranky since her 5 month jab. For the 2 days after the jab she had fever fluctuating up and down, which was the first time she had reacted to a jab. After the fever cleared, she has still been waking up 2-3 times a night. And each time, she is really wide awake and very difficult to coax back to sleep. Sigh. Sleepless nights. I wonder when this will end.
