Notice much difference below?
I should document how she has changed more than I do. She smiles all the time now, particularly right before she gets mad because she’s so tired. Her moods change in a second – is that typical of a Gemini? She’s becoming a chatterbox and especially loves talking to the dog that Narelle gave her and the lion Melissa gave her. Her favourite book is Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes (yes, she does have a preference), so it gets read to her a lot, along with Where is the Green Sheep. OK, admittedly those are the only books she has here – many more will arrive in our shipping – whenever that may be! She’s losing hair at the back of her head now, but she still resembles Chairman Mao. She has impossibly long eyelashes that everyone comments on (no longer does anyone pay attention to her long fingers). She’s discovering that she has feet, and grabs at her toes when I ask where they are. She’s almost completely out of 0000 clothes and newborn sized nappies. She’s getting fat rolls on her arms and legs and dimples in her elbows. Her eyes are changing from blue to brown, but they’re taking their time: some days they’re still blue, other days they’re hazel. She was well over 5kg at her last doctors visit a couple of weeks ago, where she got vaccinations in both thighs, plus an oral dose of the polio vaccine. She has to go back for vaccinations every month until Christmas. I’m adoring this new stage in her life – not that I didn’t adore her newborn stage – and am seeing the world through new eyes with her. When she spends five minutes examining a leaf, I look at the leaf to see what is so intriguing. I’m looking forward to everything she will teach me about the world.
