And then, another month goes by.
The Kid will be four months old on the 30th. Here's what she's been up to lately:
- Found her thumb and is sucking/chewing on it. Sometimes she has three fingers from one hand and thumb of her other all in her mouth at the same time.
- Found her feet. I went to get her after her nap, and she was laying there with a foot in each hand, looking very pleased with herself. Today, she tried to get one into her mouth, but didn't quite make it.
- Laughed, but only a few times. The Huz got her to do it twice, once each on two different days, and I got her to do it twice, both on the same day.
- Rolled over, from her stomach to her back. She's actually done this several times, but mostly she just seemed to fall over. Today, she rolled intentionally. She's so so close to rolling from back to stomach, but she can't get her arm out from underneath her.
- Gone swimming. The Huz and my brother rigged a floating ring with a canopy so she wouldn't be exposed to too much sun, and we took her to the pool twice over the weekend. She enjoyed it a lot.
- Using her voice. She humming and squealing, making monkey sounds and babbling, screaming (not mommy's favorite); just really exploring the range of her voice.
The Kid has her four month checkup this week. I'll fill in her weight, length and percentile afterwards.
Now that the "fourth trimester" is over, we're trying to incorporate The Kid into our lives more. You know, doing the things we normally did when we didn't have a baby, just modified to include her. She's been to birthday parties, weddings, out to eat at restaurants. I'm going to get involved in some mommy groups, if only to find a good babysitter if nothing else, so we can go out without pressing our parents into babysitting duty (They are the BEST babysitters, but slightly inconvenient, since they live 100 miles away). I'm also running out of things to entertain her with on my own!
On the knitting front, my friend C and I went to a Stitch-n-Pitch baseball game, Dodgers v. Astros. Astros killed, 10-2. We got four or five free bags, and I picked up a silk folding case for my Addi Cliks. I worked on my Wicked (I'm about halfway through the shoulder increases), and I taught C how to do a dropstitch, so she started a scarf with some Sugar n Creme I had laying around.
So that's it for now!
