To My Baby at 20 Weeks

I can't believe you're 20 weeks already. Where has the time gone?

Our lives have changed for the better since you've been born. You bring us so much joy and happiness and it's hard to remember a time when you weren't here.

A lady commented yesterday that you're the happiest baby she'd ever seen. My heart filled with joy hearing this. I'm so proud of you. When we go out, you're so well behaved and never make a fuss, even when you're tired or hungry or your nappy needs changing. You love watching people and seeing all the new things in the places we go. The toy aisle in Tesco was great fun the other day where you cooed at all the musical toys I put in front of you.

 Your hair is getting fairer and is starting to grow back again now that we've got the cradle cap under control with your shampoo.You're 13lb 13 and weigh slightly less than you should do for your age, but that doesn't surprise me as you're so distracted during your feeds, wanting to see what everyone is doing and not wanting to miss a thing.

At 10 weeks you started sleeping through. Then at 16 weeks you started waking during the night for a feed again, but at 17 weeks you started sleeping through again. However since you had your injections at 18 weeks you've only slept through one night.

You're so keen to get moving and you're getting more and more frustrated with yourself that when you roll onto your front, lift your bum into the air, kick your legs and wave your arms that you don't move further than a few centimetres.

I love seeing you laugh at the dog as he tries to get you to play with him and chase him. Today he gave you his toy and he got annoyed with you for not throwing it for him, but it won't be long before you're chasing each other around the house, stealing and hiding each other's toys when the other isn't looking. He's the only one that can make you belly laugh. I hope me and daddy can make you laugh like that one day.

In the past 20 weeks, we've had tears, laughter, colic, cradle cap, rolling, injections, smiling, playing, nights where you've slept through and nights where you've screamed yourself to the bring of exhaustion. I can only imagine what the next 20 weeks will bring little one!
