Scarlett Grace: 4 Months

 I've been back at work for 6 weeks now, which means Scarlett has been in daycare full time. 
It has helped a lot to get her onto a schedule, but now if she's off her schedule she gets super cranky. 
Scarlett goes down between 6:30 and 7:30 every night. 
She was sleeping until 5:30 or 6, when I woke her up for daycare. 
Unfortunately, she's hit the 4 month sleep regression and wakes up at least once or twice during the night.
We tried transitioning her to the crib, but she was waking up a ton and couldn't be consoled. 
Her pediatrician said to just let her stay in her Rock N Play for now. 

She's still in 6 months clothes and despite eating a ton, she's very skinny. 
We had to start supplementing with formula at daycare because eats three bottles while she's there,
between 6 and 8 oz each. 
I couldn't keep up pumping and was stressing myself out to the point that I was pumping even less. 
Now I can get her three 6oz bottles and if she's still hungry they give her formula. 
She could care less what she's eating or how she's getting it as long as food's getting in her mouth.  

Scarlett has gotten very curious and wants to explore everything. 
She loves all her toys, but doesn't want to be left alone. 
So she spends time in her bouncy chair, swing, high chair, and play mat to be near us. 
She has also started rolling. It was very sporadic at first, but yesterday she finally figured it out and rolls every time she's put on her belly. 

She thinks so many things are funny and we love to make her laugh. 
We're so looking forward to the holiday season with our little one and can't believe how quickly she changes.

Scarlett Grace: 3 Months

This month we finally figured out that a lot of her tummy problems stemmed from constipation.
Her doctor prescribed her 2oz of prune juice a day and she's a different person!

Scarlett's also gotten herself onto a basic schedule now.
She starts to go down between 7:30 and 8:30 and will sleep 9-10 hours.
Then she eats and goes back down until 7:30 or 8.
She typically eats at 8, 11, and 2. The afternoon doesn't really have a schedule.
She spent a day with Grandma Ria, a day with Daddy, and a day with Nana as I had to go back into work for a few days before school actually started.
She did great and has no problem switching between a bottle and breastfeeding.
Of course that means I've gotten to start pumping at work, which I don't love.

She is growing like crazy and switched into size 2 diapers at 10 weeks thanks to all the diaper explosions!
She started wearing 6 month clothes a few days before she hit 3 months. 
Her pants had been looking like capri's for awhile, 
so I was glad when she finally was able to fit the next size!
She's also started to teeth and wants everything in her mouth. 
Her favorites include, her blanket, fists, and our fingers. 

She started daycare when I went back to work on the 17th. 
She really seems happy there 
and is always smiling at the workers when I drop her off and pick her up.

They can't get her to sleep in a crib there either so right now she's still sleeping in her Rock N Play.
Hopefully we can get her to transition soon.
