Rachel -- you are FOUR MONTHS old today!!!
You still sleep really well at night, which makes Mommy and Daddy happy. Sometimes you wake up once to nurse, sometimes not. You have started having a late evening nap for about an hour, at 7:30 or so, and then you don't go down for the night until 11 or midnight (gulp!) but then you sleep straight through until 7. Since this is Mommy's preferred schedule (give or take) it's working okay. And you hang out in your bouncy seat, or in bed with Mommy, for the last hour or so, so it's all good. You still want to sleep for a bit about two hours after you wake up and your afternoon nap is anywhere from 1-3 hours. I like the longer ones better :) And you are pretty good about going to sleep on your own if you don't fall asleep when nursing.
You nurse pretty well so I don't know why you didn't gain much weight this month. Maybe because you get distracted and look around while you nurse and Mommy can only handle so much of that :) And you have started pooping only about once a week. But then watch out! Because it's pretty messy for the next two-three diapers! You like hanging out on your change table but pretty soon we'll have to stop that because you are starting to move like nobody's business. In fact, you almost rolled over today, if you don't count the fact that you couldn't free your right arm :)
You love playing on your play mat and you have gotten really good at grabbing the toys which hang down and shaking them. You also play with Sophie (the giraffe) a little and have gotten some squeaks out of her. You also hold your soother and wave it around. It's pretty cute to watch. And you talk sooooo much when you are lying on the floor, rolling around. At Oma and Opa's at Thanksgiving, we'd lie you on your blanket and as soon as Oma would come near you would talk and talk and talk to her. More than you would talk to anyone else.
