Hadley Rose: month four
Hadley, Hadley, Hadley! You keep us on our toes and we love you for it.
I am writing this as though the last couple days (since Hadley officially turned 4 months) have not happened (because they have thrown us for a loop….waking up every two hours at the beginning of the week to sleeping last night TEN/ELEVEN hours).
Month four has been the month where I finally feel like we are starting to get into a routine. Hadley naps more consistently lending itself to me having more 1 on 1 time with Emmett and having more time to clean and work from my computer.
Hadley LOVES talking, laughing, looking at you and being held. A little extrovert!? She can also be a little holy terror when she is tired and you are not helping her fall asleep. For this girl to sleep, she basically just wants a blanket over her face. She will fall asleep in your arms, the swing or a bassinet/crib as long as a little lovey is covering her face. She still fights sleep at times though. She is also still being swaddled or in the Merlin Sleep suit. Any tips on getting a baby who LOVES to be swaddled transitioned out of that? She still has not rolled over (though I find her on her side, so I know it is bound to happen soon).
Some Hadley Stats
weight: 12 lbs 4 oz according to our home scale (her 4 months check up isn’t for another week)
height: *to be added*
diapers: size 2
clothing: She is in a mix of 0-3 and 3-6. She is seriously our little peanut after Emmett!
What Hadley is up to:
-found her feet It is so cute to see her pull them up and play with them.
-more alert Every month she becomes more alert and people are constantly commenting on it.
-talking,talking,talking! I literally just copied and pasted this from last month because she is just noisy! 😀
-smiling and laughing Again, same as last month. Her laugh though is getting deeper and more of a belly laugh. It is so freakin’ adorable!
-wants attention Still copying and pasting here. She can be crying and then you look at her and she stops. Literally, she just wants you looking at her or to be held. This is not to say she doesn’t self entertain as well.
-loves her play gym. It’s so cute: the second you put her under there either her legs start going because she is so excited to be under it or she starts crying because she knows you are leaving her!
-sleeping 9 hour stretches This is about the same.
