My Blossoming Baby Print E-mail
Thursday, 18 October 2007

Cora’s nearly five months now, and I can’t believe the time’s gone so fast. I remember that at this point with Maddie I felt as if I’d had her forever, but right now it seems as though Cora just came home with us.

Part of this, I know, is that I’m not a new mom and haven’t had to adjust to such a different life – Cora’s sort of slipped into the family stream more easily than Maddie, mostly because adjusting to two kids is way easier than adjusting to having one in the first place. So we travel down our day-to-day road enjoying each other, when suddenly I look up and she’s not a newborn anymore!

Let The Fairness Guilt Begin Print E-mail
Monday, 24 September 2007

I took Cora in last week for her four-month checkup, and I have to confess I was actually looking forward to it. Being out and about in the city with only one child – and the one who didn’t complain or whine or beg, at that – felt positively vacation-like. Going through the well-baby visits the second time around are much easier: you know what you’re doing this time (ish) and your list of questions is much shorter. So I cruised in, smugly anticipating smooth sailing and a quick trip home.

The check-up went well for the most part – Cora’s in perfect health, and is growing well, eating well, yadda yadda yadda. But then the doctor started looking at Cora’s motor skills, checking for the four-month milestones. She put Cora on her tummy, helped her pull up to sitting, tried to encourage her to standing, and so on.

Chatty Cathy - Er, Cora Print E-mail
Tuesday, 28 August 2007

Cora’s entering that entertaining stage where she is starting to try to communicate, “ooh”ing and “aah”ing for all she’s worth. She’s been doing it for a couple weeks now, mostly just to me during quiet moments together. But she’s been gradually coming out of her shell and now speaks to a variety of people.

A Few Firsts Print E-mail
Thursday, 16 August 2007

I spent some of yesterday morning playing with Cora on her playmat; she’s in such a good mood in the mornings and is beginning to love trying to kick and bat at the hanging toys. Maddie and I got ready to hit the park and left Cora having a good time as Daddy finished putting the breakfast dishes away in the next room.

A scant sixty seconds later, I get a call on my cell phone from Brian: “Did you leave Cora on her stomach on the playmat?” “Of course not,” I replied indignantly. (What am I, an amateur???) Safety concerns aside, I’d never leave Cora on her stomach: she’s not, shall we say, a fan of tummy time and I despair of getting in enough of it.

Who's Really Being Punished Here? Print E-mail
Thursday, 19 July 2007

Since Maddie’s over two and definitely developing a will of her own, we’re working on consistent discipline with Maddie and sometimes it seems the “punishment” is harder on the parent than on the kiddo.
