Eating, teething, and more

Plenty has happened for Tomoe in the last couple weeks.  We’ve had a couple of immunizations, some physical development, and more!

First of all, a week ago, she got her Hib vaccine (Haemophilus influenzae type b) and this week got her Streptococcus pneumoniae vaccine.  She was pretty good for both, though she gave a bit of a sound during today’s shot.

Physically, Tomoe is getting stronger.  She’s can stand with support, and frequently bounces between squatting and standing.  She’s also been able to stand by herself once, but only for 1 or 2 seconds. She’s getting pretty good at holding things and manipulating them with both hands.

Recently, she hasn’t been eating solid food as much.  She’s been chewing on things a lot, and it appears that a tooth is finally close to coming in.  She’s also been having difficulty sleeping at night, most likely due to this.  We’re discovering some of her likes and dislikes.  She loves yogurt.  But it seems she doesn’t like cheese.

Her intelligence is most definitely developing.  She can communicate some things with us.  When she wants to be picked up, she reaches her arms out.  It appears that she can copy waving a bit.  She also loves to clap my hands.  She doesn’t clap her own hands yet, though.

One big thing that may turn out to be difficult is that she showed signs of separation anxiety when I was home alone with her one night.  My wife was working, and she kept crying no matter what I did.  Feeding, changing her diaper, playing with her, holding her, all resulted in crying.  But that was only one night, thankfully.

I think I’ll finish with some pictures! Enjoy.

Nice hair! She just had a bath.

Holding the spoon, but no skill. She can’t feed herself yet.

Two hands are better than one?

She’s happy to eat real food.

Sometimes she can move around a lot. She has a teething toy on her head. This was after her Hib shot.

She loves to watch our dog Biscuit.

She’s really devilish.

She doesn’t seem very scary.

Because of her teething, she’s rubbing her gums on the edge of the bed.
