16 Weeks Old..

It's been a very long time since I've updated everyone on Caylee. She is more of a high maintenance baby and so wants my attention at all times! She is napping at the moment so I'll share what's been going on with us.

First, I'd just like to say that she is the sweetest little girl EVER!

For the last few days she has been trying very hard to roll over (back to belly). She gets her upper body turned but has trouble getting her top leg over. I am SO excited for when she finally gets it! I'm not pushing the issue and trying to let her go at her own pace. She can however, scoot. If you lay her down she turns her whole body in a big circle!!

We moved from bottles (of pumped milk) back to the boob =)
My pump broke a month or two ago and I couldn't go get a new one right away. Much to my surprise she latched on without a problem! We are both much happier now and I think that I will reach my goal of 6-9 months now!

Grandma Nancy got Caylee an ExerSaucer and it has been AMAZING! It is by far her favorite toy. 4 days ago she figured out that the seat spins!!! She is still too small for it but is more comfortable and now spins the wheels, talks to herself in the mirror, etc. Caylee sits and plays in that thing for up to 25 minutes!!

Speaking of mirrors...Caylee LOVES to stand on the counter and look in the mirror. As soon as she sees herself she smiles, laughs, and "talks"!

She still likes to look at ceiling fans but is discovering many other fun things.

Sleeping...I wish that I could say she was sleeping through the night but she definitely is not. She has a few times but it never lasts! Caylee goes to bed at 8:30 and then wakes to eat at about 1:30am and then again at 4 and 7am.

She is still sleeping in the bassinet next to the bed because I am not really ready to put her in the nursery yet! I think she will need to go soon but it makes me sad. I am thinking that Dad's snoring and coughing won't disturb her sleep if she is moved out...I just have to build myself up to it.

Caylee is a very happy little baby. She smiles and talks to people all the time. We have groups of people stop to look at her and talk to her wherever we go. She LOVES the attention.

Sadly, she still doesn't like for anyone to hold her... She only lasts about 5 minutes before she wants Mommy to hold her. It's a little frustrating. I am trying very hard to figure out what to do about this. She is a bit spoiled...just a bit.

Tomorrow is her very first Thanksgiving and I'm so excited about it! We will be having dinner (made by myself) at grandma Nancy's house. Great Uncle Billy, big brother Aiden, and of course Mommy and Daddy will be there. It should be lots of fun!

Well, that's all I can think of for now. I just wanted to update everyone on how well she is doing!
