What's Happening with Your Baby
Your baby is now taking great delight in her ability to make "razzing" sounds. In fact, she is likely imitating many different sounds. Repeat a sound and see if she begins to mimic you. If you then repeat the sound back to her, she'll likely intensify her effort. Before you know it, she will start mimicking your words.
Taking Care of Yourself
Are your feet tired and do they ache after a long day? If so, take steps now to pamper them. Wear supportive, comfortable shoes. If you wear heels each day, make sure they are less than 2 1/4 inches high. At the end of a hard day, treat yourself to a relaxing foot bath, complete with a cooling peppermint scrub. Then ask your partner to massage your feet. And don't forget to reciprocate.
