Happy Valentine’s Day!
Adriana’s newest thing is what I like to call The Mariah. Yup, she discovered her glass-breaking vocal chords and currently loves to squeak, squeal, and shriek alllllll day long. hah. I’m not kidding when I say all day long. Oh man, the girl has some pipes on her. I texted my friend and I was like…sooo this is just a phase, riiiiight? hah.
I took to Twitter:
Another silly thing she’s doing is what I like to call the 90-year old granny. She sucks her lips inward and looks like an old lady who forgot to put her dentures in. Our theory is that she’s trying to suck up all the drool off her chin.
Also enjoys: rolling back to tummy (but not so much tummy to back), grasping toys, exersaucer, this baby doll that laughs when you press it, holding our fingers, grabbing my hair and face, pulling out my hair (or what’s left of it), staring at Sketchie (she’s really taken notice to the cat this week and loves watching him).
The major progress of the week is that Adriana is starting to sleep longer stretches again. I feel like the 4-month sleep regression (or as some like to call it, the 4-month sleep progression since they make all kinds of great developments during this phase) seems to be letting up a bit. She’s waking up a few times a night, but a couple of those times she usually falls back to sleep on her own within a few minutes. It’s a damn miracle. This week I’ve been feeding her once overnight (usually around 3ish) and then not again until the morning. I feel like we are slowly, but surely getting into better groove! I’m sure it will all go out the window once she’s teething, but for now it’s nice to feel a bit more rested. We’ve been dealing with the sleep regression for a month and a half now, so we are more than ready to sleep. Bring it on, sleepy dust, bring it on.
We seem to be getting into a good routine lately. Wake up time is 7am on average. She goes down for a morning nap around two hours after waking, then a lunchtime nap, and then a late afternoon nap (which doesn’t start any later than 4pm now). This schedule has helped her sleep a lot better. She is usually awake 2-2.5 hours between naps which is working very well right now. She seems so much happier these days.
We had her 4 month doctor’s appointment this week (we were a bit late booking the appointment) and it went well. Her weight is right at the 50th percentile. She’s grown 6.5 inches since birth which puts her at 26.5 inches (90th percentile for height!). She’s growing like a weed. Girl is going to take after her tall daddy no doubt.
Well, gotta jet…we’ve got a busy day ahead! Hope you have a great weekend,
