I wish I could say that after making it to the 4 month mark I took a deep breath in and then was able to relax. I wish I could say that, but now I am trying to navigate uncharted waters. I have asked my sister and best friend a million questions because I don't have any clue about anything a baby does after 4 months. Currently she is amazing. Wait a minute she is always amazing. I have never wiped so much drool off a baby and have change her shirt at least twice a day.(I should put a bib on her but they just are not cute looking). She is growing like a weed. I swear last week in her jumperoo she was still on her toes and this week I had to move it up. I have put away all her 3-6 month clothing and had to laugh at some of the outfits because I did squeeze her into some one last time. She loves rolling from her back to front but has not mastered from front to back. I really wish she would because I freak out when I find her on her stomach in the middle of the night. I haven't moved her to her crib. I worry that the longer she stays the harder it will be on me to let her go in her own room. On the other hand if my husband ends up going away for work then I don't know if I want her in her room anyways. Marleigh has just experienced her first cold. Mommy and daddy are hating every minute of it. You can't really do anything for a sick baby but saline and bulb sucking which she hates soooooo much and screams everytime I do it. I had forgotten Johnson's made a vapour bath which I made Tim go and get and I tried last night and helped her a lot. We also tried rice cereal which she didn't really like and ended up spitting all over herself. I think we will wait another week. We are celebrating 5 months today. She is hilarious and is getting a little personality of her own. After Tim was off for a week they have really bonded and she doesn't freak out anymore with him. I love watching them together they are so much alike. I still have my good days and bad. I find at the end of the day when I'm rocking her to sleep is when its the hardest. I imagine an almost 3 year old coming in to give his little sister a kiss goodnight or having him entertain her while I'm doing stuff around the house. This thanksgiving my sister is coming home and I am anticipating it be hard. Her son and Jackson were only 4 months apart and her daughther and Marleigh are 6 months apart. I would love to see them all playing together. I wish Jackson was here to play with his little boy cousin. I think they would be great friends.
