Tuesday, 14 January 2014: Two Hundred and Eighty Nine Days Old.
Ayla slept for five hours last night, the first time she’s slept that long in months!
I’m putting it down to two things;
1) Ayla’s second tooth is now properly through and the third one is giving us a little time to regroup before making its presence known
2) Ayla spent over an hour running around the house in her walker just before bed time
Ayla’s now so proficient in her walker that it keeps her occupied for ages, and I love nothing more than kicking back on the couch at the end of the day watching my little baby girl
walk run around the house.
She’s like a speed racer!
Ayla will make her way into the kitchen and play with her reflection in the oven, then she’ll run over to the front door to talk to The Dog through the fly screen.
When that gets old or The Dog walks off, Ayla will fly by the lounge for a quick mummy kiss, then scoot off down the hall in the hope that our bedroom door might not be shut properly.
Then Ayla will see Cat Cat and really start to focus, spending the next 30 mins chasing the poor cat around the place until Ayla suddenly discovers the bag of recycling rubbish in the kitchen, or something similar.
In all her adventures Ayla has become very adept at steering the walker; she now knows how to reverse to get around obstacles, and Ayla can turn the bulky walker on a dime if need be.
Ayla can also stay on a straight path when traveling long distances at high speeds, which cracks me up the most because she gets her “game face” on and starts running, eyes glued to her target and little feet going so fast it’s as if they’re hardly touching the ground.
