So Darcie is coming up to 12 weeks old on Saturday... How time flies!
Are little family has really settled into a nice routine, it has taken us a while to get one established as Jamie has awful shift patterns! Having this established routine I think is key, Darcie is such a good baby I have nothing to complain about, the only time she has been at all grumpy has been when its been extremely hot... but then again who isn't a little bit grumpy in horrible hot muggy weather?!

Darcie has come a long way since my last update, its amazing to watch her develop. So at 12 weeks this is a little summary as to where Darcie is...
*Is sitting up really well aided*
*If she is propped up on some pillows she will try and pull herself up so she can sit properly*
*She reaches out on grabs toys, She loves her mirrored toys... vain child!*
*She tries to put everything she grabs in her mouth... she usually fails though bless her!*
*She will really "chat" to you now, with full on facial expressions to match... she always has such intense stories to tell!!!*
*She tries to hold her bottle*
*She has moved on to size two teats*
*She is in size three nappies*
*At her last weigh in (just over a week ago) she weighed 12lb 15oz*
*During a feed she will normally have between 6-7oz about 5 times a day... sometimes she will have an extra feed but it will only be about 4oz... piggy*

Darcie is still showing all the symptoms of teething, she is so dribberly! To be fair to her she hasn't moaned much about it, sometimes when she has a feed she will cry a little but as soon as I put her teething gel on (I use Dentinox) she is fine.

I don't think it will be long before we start weaning her, they recommend you wait till six months, but I highly doubt she will stay contented for that long!

All in all she is such a happy baby, she really is mine and Jamie's world.
