It seems like C.S. has changed so much in the last month.
-She is teething. We will know tomorrow if she matches D's record of getting the first tooth at 4 months and 1 day old.
-She figured out how to use her hands which allows her chew her hands and anything else she can get into her mouth, which helps with the teething. It also allows her to grab handfuls of my boob and try to rearrange the location of my nipples while she is nursing, ouch.
-She can entertain herself for short periods of time. I do love holding her but it's much safer for her to hang out in the baby gym while I attempt to cook supper. Today I was actually successful in preparing supper by myself and it wasn't frozen pizza.
-She is starting to "talk" a lot more. She makes a whole range of noises at us and has figured out how to do it while nursing.
-She will occasionally chuckle but we can't get her to properly laugh or giggle for any length of time.
She still refuses to nap in her crib (but sleeps there just fine at night) and will not go down for the night before 10 pm. I spend a lot of time trying to get her to sleep more but at this point I think it's still in the range of normal. I'd rather be worrying about how much sleep she gets than have to worry about how much she eats. Clearly that's not an issue (her rolls have rolls) but I won't know how much she weighs until tomorrow.
(As of May 11, C.S. weighs 14 lb 10 oz, 75th percentile for weight and height. Somehow she is both lighter and longer than D was at 4 months. And no teeth, yay for me!)
Here's just a little more cuteness for you.
