Qiana has some issues. Don't know if they are completely normal, and most of the time it makes me laugh, but I can see some of her issues getting a little annoying at some point. Here are my baby's little "quirks"
1. Eating: Why is is that Qiana will put anything in her mouth
(look at her deer in the headlights look...)
...except BABY FOOD!
This is my biggest frustration, and Kimmy and Myhre have had to talk me down from a complete breakdown on occasion. She has always been such a good eater that I was so sure she would take to baby food quickly.....not the case. She will put everything else in her mouth, including an empty baby spoon, but if she sees food she becomes lock jawed and nothing gets in. I think it's just the act of opening her mouth and taking the food in, that she is protesting, because on the rare occasion that I have gotten food in her mouth, she doesn't spit it out and in fact licks her lips in enjoyment of the food that has graced her palette...such a diva.
(uh-uh you ain't puttin' that in my mouth!)
(tryin' to act like i'm not even there...)
2. Sleeping: I'm afraid my baby has a suffocation fetish. Ever since she was born she had loved the feel of my hand on her cheek, and that simple act has calmed her down easily from her crying. I can tell when she is getting tired because she will grab one/or both of my hands and put them on her face...not on her cheek...literally covering her face. Now she has gotten to the point where she is most comfortable laying in bed with the blankets touching her face on all sides, and often times I will check on her while sleeping and she has pulled the blankets completely over one side of her face.
This worries me a little, so I constantly check on her while napping. She doesn't like the blanket covering up her mouth, which I think makes it okay for now. The funniest thing about it, is that I HATE things touching my face, and would feel so claustrophobic sleeping like this.
3. Bottles: Qiana has shown no interest in feeding herself, and won't even grab onto the bottle while I am feeding her. such a princess. I am trying to get her to hold the bottle on her own, but her coordination needs some work. I think she can do it...the problem is...she doesn't WANT to. I guess I don't blame her. If I had the option of laying around and having someone feed me all the time, I don't think I would be in any rush to do it myself either.
her first attmept
looks like she had is for a couple seconds...and then is easily distracted...
4. Attention: This one isn't so much a frustrating, as an amusing fact about Qiana. The girl can't keep her eyes off me. Whenever I leave the room she follows me..no matter what...and waits until i come back into view.
These positions can't be comfortable...
