Milestones

Since last week, Raelynn has been gurgling and cooing at us when we talk to her. She makes different sounds each time. I only remembr 'ah ku ra' and 'ahh.... meh....' haha. She loves seeing her own reflection in the mirror. She loves to be carried upright against our shoulder in burping position and I usually walk towards the mirror to check if she is sleeping or still awake as I pat her. ;)

Today, I tested her tracking reflex and she has no problem following the object in the air. But she still doesn't move well and can't turn yet when we put her on tummy or on the back. Guess she doesn't get as much practice compared to cheh cheh cos she is carried by the maid quite often. Plus the airflow cool mat on her cot bed is a bit slippery so no grip. Have asked the maid to put her on the bumper mat more often and don't even partial swaddle her in the day (since it's not cold) so that she can learn to move her body more. I already cut her nails today and removed her mittens tonight. Hope she can learn to flip/move soon. :)
