Emily 4 months

Just when I think she can't get any cuter..she does! This little monkey is four months old now. In two months she will be half a year old. How did this happen so fast? She's changing so much. She is a very happy baby. The only time she cries is if shes hungry or tired. She also cries as SOON as she realizes I'm getting her ready to take a nap. It's very odd. She gets fussy because she needs to nap and then starts crying as she realizes, "Mom is about to make me go to sleep!" She's mostly all smiles. She makes the cutest noises now. She laughs but she makes you work for it. She's very ticklish under her arms so that's a sure way to get a laugh. She wrinkles her nose up and smiles so big when she's happy.

New Things ~ She laughs. She can roll from her tummy to her back. She is constantly chewing on everything. If she can reach something she is going to grab it and it is going in her mouth. No more sweet baby cooing. Now she makes loud screechy angry sounds when shes mad and cute quiet babbling sounds when shes happy. Her angry sounds are pretty funny so it's hard to take her seriously and not laugh when shes mad.

Sleeping ~  Confusing. About 2 weeks ago she was sleeping about 5-6 hours at a time at night and taking great naps. Now she is up every 3-4 hours at night and likes 30 minutes naps. I guess the only things that stays the same about baby sleep is that it always changes...  She freaks out when she knows I'm going to lay her down for a nap. At first I thought maybe I was waiting to long to lay her down and she was just over tired. It doesn't matter if I wait 45 minutes after she wakes up or an hour and a half so I know over tiredness isn't the issue.. She ALWAYS gets mad at nap time. As soon as I lay her down she's asleep within 5 minutes though. It's probably just a phase and for now it's just what she does I guess.

Likes ~ Her butterfly is still her favorite toy. She likes to play on her tummy now. She doesn't mind the car seat! She likes to touch Bella's face. We started giving her a teensy bit of baby food. She LOVES applesauce. She loves to splash in the tub. She gets water all over the place.

Dislikes ~ I'm having a hard time thinking of something she doesn't like. She's really pretty happy and content right now. I guess maybe she doesn't like teething? We think she might be getting some teeth early because occasionally she gets super fussy and starts attacking everything with her gums.

She has her four month check up and shots on Thursday. I hate hate hate shots. I just feel so bad for her. Hopefully she will do better than last time though. She no longer likes to be held while sleeping on our chests. She wants to be laying down in her crib. That's a good thing but I miss snuggling with her sleeping on my chest. Her hair has little blonde bits mixed in now. I really wanted her hair to stay dark like Joey's but it looks like it is going to lighten up. She is just so sweet. I told her to stop growing so quickly....
