The best 4 months
On the 17th Brighton turned 4 months!!!!!! Quickest and best 4 months of my entire life. You guys, I am so obsessed with her! Remember that time I planned on making a video every month? Well I DO have footage for month 3 + 4 but I just haven't edited it together. oops! So a blog post for now :) Here is the latest and greatest about our favorite girl!
She talks and laughs ALL the time now! I've been dying for the time when she laughs a lot and it's finally here. Trying to get her to laugh pretty much involves me or Jason doing something completely ridiculous. Then when she laughs at it once, we do the same thing 100 times until she gets over it haha. It is worth it!! Imagine your favorite thing in the whole entire world and just know that hearing her laugh is 10 times BETTER than that. It's true!! ;)
She can roll!!! 99% of the time it takes some encouragement and a little help but she has done it on her own a few times. The kids a genius, I swear (who would have thought rolling made you a genius? It does, though!!) She stands & sits up (with help) and loves her bumbo. I like to include her in as much as I can so I cart the bumbo all over the house so she can sit in it and hang out and be included in whatever is going on.
She is the sweetest cuddler and my favorite time of every day is when she wakes up in the morning to eat. So basically she wakes up, eats, and then falls asleep again on my chest until like 8 or 9 (we've been sleeping in a little lately...) then at night after she eats for the night, she cuddles on my chest again for a while until Jason makes me put her in her crib :)
She hit a little sleep regression (yay 4 month regression! She started the regression around 3.5 months) but it isn't too bad and I think it's getting better! For a few weeks she was waking up 2 times a night to eat when she used to sleep though the night! So that was a little rough of a change but she is down to just up once to eat and then back to bed, yay! She is mostly regressing in naps, I just have to figure it out! I think I need to work on how long she's awake between naps and that sort of thing. Mostly I she just tries to take shorter naps in the day, but it's all about trial and error and I think I'm starting to get it. If you have any nap tips though, send them my way!
Loves- baths, hearing our voices, her changing table (she always gets sooooooo excited when I lay her on her changing table!), waking up, sitting up, hearing me sing (thanks for the confidence boost, B), eating, pretty much loves everything. She loves her thumb lately! I know I should discourage it but it's so cute seeing her get her thumb in her mouth with an open fist. I'll regret it when I'm paying for braces when she's older, but I'm totally ok with that!
Hates- literally nothing. Not that J or I can think of? Sometimes she doesn't love the car but it's usually if it's night time and it's dark or if she's hungry or something.
I can't think of anything else that has really changed besides her personality coming out soooo much this past month! Her hair is starting to grow in (BLONDE, YAY!) and it's sooooo cute. Her little hairs on her cute little head. I love it all. I always tell her that she HAS to love cuddling forever and that if she wants to live in my house, that's the rule she has to follow ;) I figure I might as well start her young and snuggle her as much as I can. I love seeing her grow and the bitter sweet idea of my baby becoming bigger makes me so happy and sad at the same time. WE LOVE YOU, B!!!!
