Here's a video of Maribelle "working out" on her play mat. It's a pretty good example of how noisy she can be and how close she is to rolling. (I just don't know how to get her more interested in rolling the entire way!) Her newest thing is squealing, but we haven't been able to catch much of that on video yet.
These past two weeks we've been dealing with major sleep issues, and from what I've researched, the four-month wakeful/sleep regression period is to blame! Babies develop so much during this month that they literally don't let themselves go to sleep. And that's what Miss Maribelle has been doing .... taking FOREVER to fall asleep and/or falling asleep and only sleeping for 30 to 45 minute increments. Yeah, it's been LOADS of fun, and we've been experiencing some major sleep deprivation around here. However, for the past three days, Maribelle has been sleeping a ton .... and has a fever, poor girl. I think we're dealing with a virus, or possibly, possibly some early teething. Either way, in one of my delirious moments this week, it occurred to me that this time a year ago is when we discovered that a little Baby M was in our future!
It's just amazing how life takes you from this (well, about four of these) ....
to this ..... in the blink of an eye!
