You have really grown up a lot this month. Seriously, sometimes I look at you and wonder what happened to my little baby. Your face is so much more grown up and you act like you know exactly what is going on at all times. Now, when you babble, it sounds like you have something really important to say and you need everyone to pay attention. It is so cute.
Your absolute favorite thing to do is look at, play with, suck on, and eat your hands. I can put you down on your boppy and you will just lay there looking at your hands for hours...it's great. =D You especially like to examine them while I am signing to you, I expect your first sign will happen soon.
You are still sleeping great! Between 9 and 11 hours a night. However, your naps aren't as productive as they use to be. You love to be swaddled, in fact you will not sleep without being swaddled. Problem is, you are getting too big for your swaddlers now, so you are constantly breaking out of them and waking yourself up. I guess it is time to wean you off your swddlers...but I think it might be a long and nightmare-ish process. (If anyone has any suggestions on how to transition from swaddling to not swaddling, that would be wonderful!) You are smiling SO much now...especially when we come to get you out of your crib, you flash the hugest, cutest smile, it makes my heart melt.
You learned to roll over this month! However, you only do it when you want to. One day you rolled over, tummy to back right and left, about 12 times. We were sure you would be rolling over all the time after that. But then we would try and show your trick to other people and you refused to do it. Now, you just roll over every once in awhile when you want to...I am not even convinced you really know how to do it, I think it just happens sometimes. HaHa.
You got your cast off this month (hopefully for good) and your foot is looking a lot better. You also went on two vacations. We went to Bryce Canyon for Peter and I's two year anniversary and you did so great. We got a little front backpack thing and hiked with you. You just slept the entire time, I think you loved being so close and snuggly with daddy. Your second vacation was to Arizona to see Savanna (former roommate) get married. On the way home you got to go to Walnut Canyon, Sunset Crater Volcano, Wupatki, The Grand Canyon, and Four Corners. You have already been to 4 states in 3 months! We had tons of fun, even though you weren't very happy some of the time, all-in-all you were wonderfully behaved.
You seriously light up our lives little girl. We love having you in our family even though everything in our house, including us, is constantly covered in spit-up. We love you more than you will ever know.
