This little one is just growing, growing, growing. Her last appointment weighed her in at just 2 ounces shy of 13 lbs. She's almost doubled her birth weight and our arms are feeling it! :))
She's such a joy. This past month, she started rolling over. Like every opportunity she gets, she gathers up little legs rolls them to the side. Still wobbly, but she knows what she's doing now. Except she doesn't seem to be a fan of being on her stomach. :))
She's a smiley little one. Cooing and smiling and yes, sometimes screaming. But truly she just continues to adapt so well to this world. Some of my favorite and funniest memories so far is when Rob holds Skye and has her "walk" around. Like a doll. He just lifts her up and makes it appear she's jumping from the floor to the bookcase to the bed. It makes all of us crack up. Skye doesn't mind either, she's a trooper.
Her favorites right now are eating, sleeping on mommy after she's eaten, watching her big brother run around and play, watching Frozen with Finn, having our full attention. The last one can be hard with having a toddler, especially if you're along at night. Skye definitely prefers you talking with her or paying her some sort of attention or she can get agitated.
Sleep lately has changed. I remember this with Finn that it just went through it's phases. I try to keep her up and feed her as late as I can (since I don't head to bed till 11/11:30). She then was sleeping through the night with only 50/50 chance of waking up for a middle of the night feeding. Well, lately she's waking up more like 2-3 times a night. Sometimes when I get to work I add up the hours of sleep I had the night prior and sometimes it's in the 3 1/2-4 hour range. Miraculously I'm still able to function, but I am tired. Rob is too. This is parenthood, though, right?
So that was a whole lot of rambling, but just summing up this past month with our baby girl. Love watching her grow, but man this is going fast!
