wordpress is really pushing it these days with not saving drafts…. or am i just not saving them…. needless to say, i’m pretty frustrated.
i had almost finished my catch post #2 – all about maeve – and it didn’t save. i’m so bummed it’s all gone :( *le sigh*
after not posting in forever i made a goal to write about three things i’d been thinking about a lot lately. 3 posts in one week was a pretty lofty goal so i’ll be happy with my one (technically there were 2 but…. clearly i can’t let this go ahhah). this week i now have a 2 post goal ;)
maeve is growing and changing so rapidly i can barely keep up. it seems like there is a new thing almost every day.
the newest new thing is she broke her first tooth on thursday! well technically i started to feel it before i put her to bed on wednesday but in the baby books i’m going with thursday. 4 months, 11 days and that sharp little sucker finally popped out :) she has been quite good about it too. no face rash, no bum rash, no fever, no diarrhea. actually it’s been the opposite. all of a sudden she’s started going 2-3 days between poops :S she still keeps her smile through it all though. even when she’s crying, she’s still trying to keep a smile. it’s almost heart breaking to watch.
she’s rolling over consistently but hates tummy time. she’s gets herself over, is happy for about 30 seconds then all hell breaks loose. she always has her hands in her mouth so when she gets on her tummy she rams them in there and then doesn’t work on holding her head up or using her arms to lift herself. maybe now that the tooth is out she will focus more on this?
this a weird one but she discovered the back of her head hahaha. she takes her hand and strokes her little mullet back there LOL.
she smiles and “talks” and yells and babbles. she moves her mouth when you are talking to her. she has started to make “muh muh muh” sounds. it’s so adorable. she looks like she’s ready for food. she watches everything you do and even mimics the chewing motion. i’m going to talk to the dr. about pablum at her 4 month appt. on tuesday. it’s early but she also already has a tooth so she may be developing more rapidly in that department.
i’ll be honest, she is sleeping pretty horribly right now and i am really tired! she went from sleeping 6-7 hours through the night to 3 in a row, if i’m lucky! once she’s up she is insistent on suckling at my boob. even when she’s been, from i can tell, dead asleep for half an hour on my breast as soon as i put her down she’s wailing. however, this morning there a twist in the plot! she fell off my boob and started fussing. i tried putting her back on but she kept fussing. i put her down in the bed beside me and fell fast asleep. progress?! i sure as hell hope so haha.
she LOOOOOOOVES her jolly jumper and i love it too! a few meals without a baby in my arms is pr-i-tty nice. she will spend a solid half an hour in there before she starts to fuss. what a great invention. she has a couple of JJ sessions a day now.
she is almost too big for her bath tub. she want to sit up and slash the water with her hands. my husband has just started the work on the second bathroom reno and that is where the tub will be so it she’ll be in the sink tub for a couple of months still but once the bathroom is finished she is going to have a ball splashing away in there.
we started putting her in the actual stroller. we just clip the straps her waist, not worrying about the shoulders and lean it back into an elevated laying position and she loves it. she kicks her legs up onto the cup holder, bar thingy (what is that part even called!?) and she is straight up chillin’ in there!
there is more i’m forgetting for sure but happy to have some of this recorded to look back on.
