Resource Thursday- February 17, 2011

Every Thursday, Hope Cottage shares resources for parents, adoptive or otherwise.  Enjoy and feel free to leave your comments and suggestions - we must just include them in a future post!

You made it through the first 8 – 10 months with your baby. Congratulations! You’re starting to feel a sense of growing confidence in this parenting thing – your baby has become more predictable, and she’s a lot of fun, too.  She isn’t tiny anymore – she can crawl, sit in her high chair, and explore around the house. But wait a second – she’s fussing and clinging a lot all of a sudden, plus she’s been waking more at night again. “She must be sick!” you think. But her doctor checks her out – and gives her a clean bill of health. No, it’s not her teeth or her ears. It’s her brain – growing in leaps and bounds.  Click here to read more about "Why Normal Babies Cling and Fuss" from Health Tap Blog.
