Ahalya turned 6 months a week or so ago and because so many parents look forward to that milestone, I thought I'd share my experience with you. She can now sit by herself for a minute or two without support. She rolls over so much that she once fell off the bed (it was then… Continue reading My 6 Month-old Baby
At 4.1 weeks my sweet little girl started waking up to feed often at night (like a newborn!) and her day naps became short and few. She was cranky and clingy and was feeding every one and a half hours, again. And even though I've read so much about it, in reality it's an awful,… Continue reading 4th Month Sleep Regression & Growth Spurt (with a good dose of teething)
Ahalya (4.1 months old) was showing the first signs of crawling, so I got her one of those spongy play mats from Cool Planet. And yesterday (on the 8th of July) she actually crawled just a few inches for the first time! it's also got numbers on a #colourful surface so that we make a… Continue reading First Signs of Crawling
Ahalya is four months old today. She can spend about 15-30 minutes alone, by herself, without a fuss now. That is if she's fed and full and not too sleepy or cranky.

Her sleep routine went for a six. She started waking up in the middle of the night for… Continue reading Growth Spurt or Wonder Week or Both?
This photo was taken on the 1st of June. That was the day she first laughed out loud. I couldn't capture that exact moment though. I was just too fascinated and excited to even look at my phone. We were playing and I laughed at something she did and she laughed back so loud. I… Continue reading She Laughed out Loud!
Free! Free! My arms are finally free!!! My baby can now feed without my hands supporting her head or my breast. It was impossible to breastfeed my little girl without holding my breast away from her nose with one hand (so she wouldn't suffocate) and the other supporting her neck in place (it wasn't steady… Continue reading Breastfeeding; look no hands!
