Miss Calliope is four months old and doing spectacularly. She weighs 15lbs 7oz and is 25 inches long. She loves to play with toys and put them in her mouth. She chews on her fingers most of the day and drools the rest of it. She talks a lot and is starting to have a little giggle. She has started waking in the middle of the night but can generally get right back to sleep on her own. She seems like she will roll over any minute but she really doesn't like being on her belly so I'm not sure she even cares to try. Soon we will start to give her some cereal, we are so excited!
A couple of weeks ago (yep, meant to post about it earlier but life happened) we went to the cape of cod for a long weekend. We left on a rain Friday morning at about 6am and didn't return until Tuesday night. We had a great time and experienced lots of firsts for Calli and for us. It was Calli's first time at the beach and my first time breastfeeding in public without a blanket. I completely forgot the bottles and didn't keep up with pumping while we were away so when she started to wail at the lunch table I had no choice but to to feed her. We started under a blanket but it was so hot and she was having none of it; so I whipped it out in front of a super full restaurant, not to mention some close friends. Fun. We didn't adhere to Calli's sleep schedule at all and paid the price for it. She was up in the middle of the night every night and cried a bit as we walked around downtown at night. Fun. All in all we had a great time and I would do the whole thing over and not change a thing.
Now we are looking forward to the daycare transition next week!
Ciao for now,
