Alright so technically she's almost four months...but I still haven't posted her three month update. It totally slipped my mind. I blame it on mom brain ::wink wink::
This past month brought lots of new "tricks", as we call them around here, for Miss Tallia. She has found her hands and can't get enough. They're her favorite new toy. She has become very vocal, which we all get a kick out of. Her little squeals are my absolute favorite.
One night hubby and I were watching a show in the bedroom. Tallia was asleep in the bassinet. All of a sudden we heard a huge squeal. We thought she had woke up, but when we checked she was sound asleep. I'm not sure what she was dreaming about, but it must have been good.
We're still struggling with naps, but she still rocks it at night. She goes to sleep around 9:00 pm and sleeps till around 8 am. She usually only gets up once during the night for a feeding.
She's a great nurser, but is starting to get distracted by stuff around her. Sometimes she bites down when she's nursing. That doesn't feel to good. I've noticed she does it if I'm focused on something else...err...like my phone.
She's been getting better on the fussy front too. I feel like our colicky, fussy days are leaving us. She sometimes gets worked up, but we've been able to rock her and she'll calm down. I'm still keeping sugar out of my diet as much as I can. That seems to be helping keep her happy as well.
Whether she's a big stinker who won't take a nap or my cuddle bug at night, we've found so much joy in having this sweet girl in our family. Time is sure flying. She has her four month check up next week. I can't wait to see how much she weighs. I'll try to share that update soon....ya know before she's almost five months ::smile::
