tuesday tales [4 month update]

Tuesday, July 8, 2014
4 months already! where does the time go?

our little sunshine:
  • became way more smiley
  • had her first sickness [a cough and fever]
  • started showing signs of teething
  • can roll on her side [!!!]
  • rocked her first big road trip [it only took us 6 hours each way :P]
  • met her great-grandmothers [jason's side] and,
  • all of her first cousins
  • started wearing 6 month clothing [we find out her height/weight at the 4 month appointment on the 16th]
she likes eating [obviously], chewing on her hands, day care, her cousins [Molly especially], smiling [it's her favorite], a stuffed giraffe, trying to stand, being talked to, attention of any kind.

she dislikes being hungry or wet, not being able to escape the swaddle, being too hot, being ignored.

this month we'll be introducing some "solid" food [i'm thinking the rice cereal for starters], working on sleeping without the swaddle [helloooo sleepless nights again] and possible transitioning into her crib [if mama can handle it].

i'm also looking to get one of those standing/walking contraptions since she's super interested in standing up. any recommendations?

p.s. totally relating to this baby post from the sugarlaws blog!

  2. Such a fun age!! Two tips... if she doesn't like rice cereal try oatmeal. It was a hit at our house. The BEST toy we've bought for Olive was this VTech Sit to Stand Learning Walker toy - she plays with it all the time, you can detach the front from the walker so she can lay on the floor with it or take it on car trips. It's also perfect for when she wants to stand up and practice her walking. A toy that truly grows up with her... http://www.amazon.com/VTech-Stand-Learning-Frustration-Packaging/dp/B0053X62GK/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

    1. ooo thank you for the recommendation! we just got the baby einstein ocean sounds walker [it was on super sale!] and she seems to love it - even though she can't touch the floor and doesn't totally fit in the seat so i'll have to check otu the sit to stand vtech!
