Nina girl is about to be 5 months old, so I figured I better hurry up and write her 4 month post. Hey, at least I took the pictures on time!
Nina has settled well into a daily routine. She’s a great napper and falls asleep on her own fairly easily. She takes three naps a day. The first one is in her car seat on our way to school. She sleeps for about an hour and then she’s ready to be loved on by the other teachers. She enjoys the attention and all the kids love having her around. She’s finally started to take a cat nap of about 45 minutes at the end of the day. It sure helps to be able to get dinner ready as well as with her overall fussiness.
She loves baths, especially when daddy gives her one. She gets fussy when mommy bathes her, but she loves it when daddy does it. I think she enjoys spending some time with him after the long day away.
She doesn’t really get the concept of sleeping in. She’s usually awake by 5. I manage to get her back to sleep until about 6, 6:15. But I think I found the culprit though: her room isn’t dark enough. I thought the thick Ikea curtains would work, but last night I put a blanket up and she slept until 7! We’ll see how tomorrow goes. This reminds me I’ve never posted pictures of her room. I need to do this soon.
This may be the last day I’ve nursed her. I hope I can do it at least a little longer. This topic needs a post about itself. Maybe I’ll get around to it. Let’s just say I’ve cried more tears about this than I thought it was possible. I’ve come to terms with it now. What matters is that Nina is healthy, happy and gaining weight.
Nina has started to laugh out loud. But ONLY when her brother makes her laugh. It’s the CUTEST thing ever. I’m hoping she will start giggling for me and the husband too though!
Overall Nina is a happy girl, she seems very aware of her environment. She knows when we leave the room, she doesn’t always love when strangers get into her face ( a common occurrence here), but she will gladly smile big if they give her enough space.
Here are Nina’s stats for the month:
Weight: 13.4 lb / 6.125 kg
Height: 25 in/ 63 cm
Happy 4 months old sweet girl. We are so glad you are in our lives.
I’ll be back soon with a bedroom update and hopefully an update on O as he finishes his first year of Turkish school!
