Piper turned exactly 4 months on Saturday, which also happened to be exactly a year from when I found out I got a positive pregnancy test (I wrote a little bit about that experience here). Also, how cute are these LetterFolk signs???
I know this is SUCH a cliche thing to say, and I never fully got it until I had a baby of my own, but I can't believe how much she's grown! Aye karumba. I swear she was just this tiny little thing!
She's hit that whole "4 month sleep regression" thing, and randomly feels the need to wake up EVERY hour throughout the night *insert dead face emoji*. For the most part, she's a good sleeper and typically sleeps from 9:30-7:00am. We moved her from the cradle in our room, to her crib in her own room and I still miss having her sleep by me. I get so nervous that something will happen to her, and I won't know!
She is a ravenous beast these days, and wants to eat non-stop. On the plus side, her legs are beginning to chunk out quite nicely. I'm so pleased.
She's rolling both ways now. I'll put her on the play mat while I do dishes or something, and I'll look over and she's rolled and rolled all the way to the other side of the room haha. It's always a surprise to see what position she's gotten herself into.
Jordan usually bathes her at night, but if he's working late or doing a school project, I'll go in the bath with her and she loooooves it. We're usually in there for an hour and she just smiles and giggles the whole time.
She's definitely more aware of who she's with and more importantly, when she's not with me. I didn't realize she was so attached until we left her at my mum's house while we went to dinner for Jordan's birthday. Apparently she screamed the whole time and wouldn't even drink the milk I'd pumped and left for her. Poor thing. She was whimpering in her sleep when we got back. I felt so bad (for Piper and my mum). Usually Jordan watches her while I teach an hour spin class once a week, but last week he couldn't so I took her to my sister's house to play for an hour. She screamed as soon as my sister looked at her haha. I don't know what her deal is because she's a little angel for me and Jordan ha. She follows me whenever I leave a room and cries if I'm gone for longer than like 30 seconds. Aye, aye, aye. Can you say #needy!
She's an awesome baby and gets cuter by the second, even with her little lip snarl face.
