…And still a content and happy baby! Poppy (Grandpa Nielson), requested a picture of a meltdown since all the pictures he receives are always of her smiling. I had to put her on her tummy just to get the picture. Tummy time, too much noise, and strangers are what get to her. If that’s the case, she’ll let you know.She is rolling over like a champ, but when she rolls onto her tummy, she can’t always get back onto her back. Frustration ensues when this happens.
O went swimming for the first time! She kept a straight face the entire time, clearly concentrating and taking it all in. But, she loved it enough that we bought a pool pass.
O loves bath time and has learned how to splash! This makes bath time and pool time even more wet for Mom, but way more fun. In the bath, O kicks around and then constantly turns her head to the side and starts lapping up the water like a dog. This is the first time I’ve started telling her no. I find myself saying, “No, no, no, no. Don’t eat the soap!” She loves it, though.
She uses her feet like hands. Those feet are constantly moving and reaching for things.
Due to many trips to the library and owning lots of books, O loves to be read to. Her body tenses up and she’ll start talking and hit the pages of the book. Or, when she is mellow, she’ll sit back and constantly look up at the person reading and smile.
In her 4 month entry I mentioned that she is no longer very snuggly. I would have to take that back. Although she doesn’t curl up in a ball in my arms all the time like she did when she was a newborn, she still can be quite snuggly and huggy. I’ve been noticing it all month.

We love our girl!
