My Little Rose: 24 Weeks Old

You still have a slight cold, nothing major but it makes you uncomfortable when you are trying to sleep. Since the swing no longer is working, and therefore I cannot use it to keep you reclined I tried propping up your bassinet. I was thinking about transiting you to the flat mattress this week but with this cold it just isn’t a good idea yet. Besides the towel worked like a charm, it kept you at a slight increase so you could breathe a little easier.

We have been home for two weeks now. Two weeks of me praying you would go back to your normal sleep routine. Two weeks of getting little to no sleep, and then finally two days ago you settled back into waking only twice a night. Once at 11 right before I go to bed, and then once around 3. Ahhh the wonderful, glorious, restful four hour windows of sleep feels so amazing!

You are getting so curious, so animated. I love talking to you and watching all of your little micro facial expressions. I could stare at you all day. We often snuggle in bed together until your brother wakes in the morning or from his naps. These are the moments when I get to dedicate 100% of my attention on you and I just love it. Sometimes we are there for hours and while I relax or read you chill and play with your toys.

You are still chewing the back of your wrist. I wonder if this is going to continue, if this is your version of sucking your thumb. Or if you are just trying out something new.

When we do wake up all together your brother runs into your room and pops up to say help. He is getting so much more interested in you and YOU are getting so much more interested in him. One of your favorite things to do is to hang out on the floor and just watch him play.

You love bathtime. As in LOVE LOVE LOVE it. The second you get into the water you start kicking constantly. Which leaves me, the counter, the floor, the mirror covered in water. Seriously you have a 20 foot splash radius. You are officially getting too big for your baby tub but you still arent sitting up quite yet, so I cant move you to the larger baby bath I have. Soon we can upgrade you.

Finally you are able to hold your bottle yourself without constantly dropping it and it has given me so much freedom as we are out and about. You are getting to be such a big girl. I love it.

Your drooling has increased exponentially. I mean seriously girl you are SOAKING your clothes within the hour. I know it isn’t your fault. I am guessing you are teething although I can’t see anything going on in your mouth just yet. Time to invest in some new adorable bibs.
