and it's getting better and better!
aden and anais blankets. she has to chew on them.
sucking her pointer and middle finger.
rolling from side to side, sometimes all the way over.
nursing...more than a bottle. whoo!
smiling with her whole face, and flapping her arms.
i kept backing up to add more stuff. such a nice change from the grumpy start she had. :) i had to have my gallbladder removed this month, so she got bottles for a few days. it was rough at times, since i couldn't carry her or nurse at first, but she handled it well. i was afraid she'd not want to nurse after that, or my supply would tank, but it seemed to make her want to nurse more! and i pumped like crazy to keep it up. thankful for that! she's been awesome at going to bed around the same time as eliza. naps are still pretty short, but she takes most of them in the bassinet. she still loves to snuggle, so she spends about half the night with me/us. she loves to watch eliza, and always has smiles. blankets are her most favorite thing. she likes toys, but she'd just be happy to chew on a blanket and talk. oh man, does she talk! funny though, she mostly loud at home, when we are somewhere else people comment on how quiet she is. eliza was the same way! (well, used to be!) james said he doesn't remember eliza being as smiley and noisy as hattie, but she was such a happy baby. thanking God for these sweet blessings!
