My Baby Girl

My daughter was born Aug. 25, 2008. It was a Monday, the day before my fathers birthday. His name is Fred and his twin brothers name is Chris, and he insisted that if my daughter was born on their birthday I would have to name her Fredericka Christina. Thanks to my doctor, the c-section was not on their birthday, and her name is Aurora Rose.

I was really scared at first, because I am not a girly-girl myself, and didn't think I would be a good mom for a daughter. I am so glad she is a girl! She is an angel, sleeps all through the night, is happy all day even through teething, and always puts a smile on my face.

I can't wait till she can crawl, she's high-fiving, saying mama and dada, and claps her feet. She sits up on her own for the most part, and is learning how to catch herself before she falls.

Peek-a-boo is her favorite game. She loves music, especially the violin.

She is my little munchkin.

What a lovely, lovely story. Bless her little heart and her mum and dad. Babies bring their love with them.<br />
There is a book published several years ago by Collins/Fontana and now out of print. It has been translated into other languages. It is called "Your Growing Child" and deals with parenthood from pregnancy to teen age. It is about 750 pages long and is in paper and hardback form. Paperback can be bought on Amazon for a pound or two. It is an excellent reference book and deals with childhood behaviour and some medical issues. It was written by Dr. David Fontana who is not connected with Collins/Fontana but is, in my opinion, one of the best child care book available. <br />

My own "thing" about babies is not to ob<x>ject to their reaching out and touching things. They are not being naughty just inquisitive. The best thing is to distract them with something safe. Unloading all the kitchen pots and pans from the cupboards is not being naughty. For them it is a fun thing and they are learning finger and hand dexterity. Again, distraction is the best plan and also putting catches on the doors!<br />

Have you noticed how they point at things with their little forefinger? No one has ever taught a baby to do this but they do it all by themselves.<br />
<br />
Anyway, congratulations, you sound like a lovely mum and little Aurora Rose is a lucky little girl.<br />
<br />
Well done and Best Wishes.
