She is such a smiley baby. Everywhere I go people comment on how happy and smiley she is. Except for those times when she's hungry...or wet...or tired. But usually she's super happy. :)
She makes me laugh as she sucks on her bottom lip, chews on her tongue and talks to herself during car rides in the baby mirror we have hanging in the backseat. It's also exciting when I try to expand her horizons by going to baby & me yoga...and she cries the entire time. It may have lost the calming experience for those others in the room. Sorry - I guess that's not her thing.
Unfortunately, we have not seen the days of 10 hours of sleep at night lately. Suddenly she's hungry about every 3 hours again. I guess I enjoyed it while it lasted. She's turned into a pretty decent napper, as long as we are home. Usually 3-4 naps, the longest lasting about 3 hours. We are transitioning out of the phase that we can sleep anywhere and everywhere we go. Good thing I'm a homebody at heart. :) Maddie has also decided that she doesn't like a bottle. Nope. Not gonna take it. Which is going to make date night or girls night (or anything without her, really) a very difficult idea to justify. I'm praying it's just a phase...
I also think we are starting to teeth already...is that possible? She has about 95% of the symptoms. But no teeth have revealed themselves yet, so I guess time will tell.
I've also decided as each month passes, that this is my new favorite age. I love her so much more every day.
And I think she has no idea how cute she really is.
