MORE from Katie's Modern Nest

Tuesday, January 22, 2013


Lets talk about Hana.  She is eleven months now, my how quickly she grows up.  She continues to have a sunny personality and just adores her brother.

Hana's been teething hard core the last few weeks.  Though her first two teeth popped out at about 5 months, she finally got her 3rd tooth last week.  There are two more close on its heals, so I suspect she'll have a mouthful before we know it.

Hana is working on walking.  Leif practices with her every night.  She's standing on her own for about 30 seconds at a time, and loves holding to our fingers while she paces the room.

She is so curious about our every day actives.  She explores everything, and has a fascination with the dog dishes (so did Max).

Over Christmas, Hana caught a nasty cold that has lingered and combined with the pain of teething.  That meant that for a good week she was waking 2-3 times every night.  That was torture for Leif and I who are used to more regular sleep patterns from both our kids.  She's back to a more normal schedule, and we found that by moving her bed time later to 7:30 she's sleeping until at least 5:30 in the morning.   When it comes to napping, Hana's in the process of dropping her second nap.  Though we really fought that with Max, it is appealing to have both kids asleep for one long nap in the middle of the day at the same time.  

We love our little girl and everyday we are so thankful to have her as part of our family.
