What You're Up To - 4 1/2 Months

Emma Ramey - here's what you've been up to for the past couple of weeks!


-You are SOOOO close to sitting up by yourself. You can do it for a few seconds in our laps. We can also put you in the "tripod" position, where you're holding yourself up with your arms!

-We think there's finally a tooth coming in. On your lower gums, just to the right. It feels bumpy! You love chewing on anything you can get. You will go to TOWN on our fingers if you can get them!

-You've stayed overnight without Mommy twice now!  Once at Mimi's house and once at Nana's.  Of course you were perfect for them!
 
-You're not really into the activity mat anymore.  You roll over and get caught in the side bars.  You love the exersaucer though!  And I believe the Nap Nanny is about to be retired too...you've started trying to roll out of it.
 
-You are trying to scoot a little when you're on your tummy.  Those arms and legs get to going!  Not crawling by any means, but I think it's a very early start.
 
-You are now in 9 month clothes.  We're using the 6 months still a little bit, but they are very snug.
 
-We figured out last week that you won't sleep without your Sleep Sack.  I don't know if it's a security blanket or what, but we don't hear a peep out of you from 8pm-8am if you're in it!
 
-Pattycake has become one of your favorite things to do.  That's an easy way to get you laughing.
 
-You've started fussing a little when I leave the room.  I don't come back immediately because I don't want you getting too attached, but that doesn't mean I don't want to. :)  
 
-You've started shaking your head...it's so funny!  You'll do it when we're changing you and sometimes when we're holding you.  It doesn't really mean anything, you just like to do it!
 
-You are such a talker now.  You growl, scream, blow bubbles, and make a few vowel sounds.
 
-You love moving your arms!  You "wave" all the time now, especially when you get excited about something.
 
I was just thinking about how MUCH you're growing up!  I can't believe it's going so fast.  I love watching every second!
