|The Italian - 1 year old|
Nicolette started sitting unassisted for minutes at a time on December 2nd. Sunday morning I would set her up to see if she could balance and she would immediately topple over. Then that same afternoon I sat her up just to see if she could balance for a couple of seconds and she sat for about 3 minutes just playing with her toy as if she'd been doing this all along!!!! I was shouting frantically for the Italian to come in and watch her and N managed to keep her balance through all of that excitement.
She started reaching out both arms to mommy to pick her up and hold her on December 3rd. She was sitting in her little Boppy on the floor and I walked over to her and put my arms out and said, "Can Mommy pick you up" and out came her sweet little arms and she looked up at me to pick her up. (sigh) This was my favorite milestone...such a sweet girl.
Another great milestone that we reached is taking naps somewhere besides ON MOMMY! I still hold her and cuddle for some naps cause I love it, but it is nice to know that she can sleep elsewhere. I've been careful not to worry about creating a perfectly quiet environment for her to sleep in because I still want her to be able to konk out and crash if we're out and about. She takes about 3 naps per day now at least 2 1 hour+ naps and then 1 (sometimes 2) 20-30 minute cat naps).
So that sums up month 4...looking forward to seeing what month 5 brings!!!
