We got her little ears pierced! Matt and I have been debating about this for about a month now. I was pro earrings he was not. I never actually thought my husband would care about it but turns out almost all guys have an opinion and they all think you should wait until at least 8 when they can make their own decision instead of having it made for them. Which I totally get their view point, but I figure she can just decide when she is 8 that she doesn't want them. An earring hole is really not that noticeable. Sienna did a great job and only cried for about 30 seconds until she got a bottle in her mouth. Then all was well.
Sienna also learned some sort of new trick. She only did it that night, then it's like she forgot how to do it, but she keeps trying to do it again, especially if we start mimicking it. Unfortunately on my iPad which I use to write my blog posts I can't post movies but here is a picture for now.
Maybe you can't tell that well but she sucks in one side of her top lip and she just sucks on it, like a pacifier.
Sienna is also getting close to rolling over. She can get herself on her side and sometimes even flips her feet over but what is stopping her is the hands she likes to keep in her mouth. They kind of act as a barricade. She is also starting to use her voice a lot more. It is so cute to hear her talking away to herself or us. She has only laughed a couple of times. Matt was making a face at her and she was doing a little wheez laugh everytime. It was so cute to watch. Then the other day I just looked at her and said hi and apparently I was pretty funny cause she gave out an actual laugh, more then the wheez she was doing the day before. Oh it was the cutest thing and I wish she would do it more often.
Sienna is still a scrawny little baby. She is 4 months on August 15 and she is only 10 pounds. She is 24ish inches though so the dr's just think she will always be a long and lean baby. So we have mostly graduated from newborns and are working into 0-3 months. It's been nice cause I have gotten good use out of some of the clothes I bought, but sad too, because I bought 3 months summer clothes that she will never be able to wear. Oh well, there will always be another baby!
She is still not very interested in toys. I put them in her hand and she will hold onto them and move her arm up and down but she doesn't actively reach for one or even really smile while she has it. I think it's mostly that she just likes to keep her hands clenched so if a toy is put in her hands she holds on to it.
