Oh, BG3, why must you tease me like this?!
Right when she gets up on her hands and knees, she plops right back onto her belly and army crawls! On the one hand, I want her to start crawling because it’s so cute watching babies get all mobile and, hello, milestones! But, on the other hand, I don’t want her to crawl because that means she’s growing up too fast and once they learn something, you can’t go back. Whenever I look at her I simultaneously think how tiny, yet how big she is. Everyday is truly bittersweet as I watch her grow and learn while partly wishing she’d stay small forever.
She’s been doing a lot better at sleeping through the night. She’ll have moments where she’ll stir or wake up, but it hasn’t been that difficult to put her back to sleep. Did I mention that she doesn’t need to be swaddled anymore? Yes, it seems as though that phase of babyhood is officially over. Sigh…
She’s also been pretty good at finishing most of a bottle of formula after each feeding of solid foods. It might be because she needs the fluids because she’s thirsty, but either way, I’m not complaining. Of course, she hasn’t ever made it close to 30oz in a day, but she seems content at around 20oz/day. Luckily, she fills her tummy with 3-5 servings of solid foods the rest of the time.
