Napping with Mama... She is such a cuddler! That is a nice way of saying she really wants to be held most of the day...and night :) We are learning to work with it. Some days she will be fine and we can sit her down etc... but recently she will fall asleep in our arms and we will try to lay her down...and what do you know, she is awake, and crying to be held! We're hoping it's a phase, we are trying to put her down to sleep as much as possible, but these days being somewhat sleep deprived ourselves, we are choosing our battles! Plus we love cuddling with her too.
Snuggling... Speaking of sleep, we did hit a big milestone this weekend! Saturday night she was kind of fussy and acting like she was starving! I fed her and fed her pretty much from 7 until 10 then she finally fell asleep....and much to my surprise she slept until 4:30am! Yes, that's right our girl slept through the night for the first time on the eve of her 4 week birthday :) Then after that I thought it couldn't get any better but I laid her back down at 5:15 and she slept until 8:45! I woke up and felt like a new woman...I would love to see the trend repeat itself...but am not getting my hopes up :)
Still working out those little biceps. Her neck has gotten so strong! And her little legs are strong too, I can't believe how she can scoot herself over the pillow using her legs!
This is her in her little bathrobe :) She is still quite fond of her bath time, except we did learn a valuable lesson. Don't wake a sleeping baby to give them a bath...it's never worth it! We tried and let's just say we had one VERY unhappy girl on our hands. I think it took her a good few hours to calm down after that!
Little Miya got to meet her Auntie Cherai for the very first time this weekend! She loved getting to meet her and enjoyed her visit very much! We also enjoyed being able to eat dinner in peace while Auntie Cherai held her for us...I have grown accustomed to eating with Miya in my lap, but it was nice to get to eat without worrying about dropping food on her head!
Giving meema big smiles...I love it :) This past friday she started smiling while awake, it's the best!
Her hair has started to get some wave, she has this one cute little curl in the front that I just had to get a picture of :)
Miya also has another new trick. She will hook her fingers around her pacifier and pull it out of her mouth and keep it in her hand. It cracks us up because she eventually will try to get it back in her mouth and that never goes very well....but it's lots of fun to watch! We don't know what she's thinking but we think she's pretty smart :)
That's it for now! We are so thankful for every day with our little girl. This upcoming week she has her one month appointment with the pediatrician, we are wondering how much she weighs now, she has been eating well, and those cheeks are only getting bigger!
