16 weeks old (and some change)

Our baby girl is growing so much these days. She went from still being able to wear a few newborn size outfits to barely fitting into the six-month size clothes in the last three weeks. She weighs over 13 pounds now and is filling out all over the place. She is smiling so much more everyday, and she smiles with her whole body! It is the cutest thing! She even has Josh's dimples (yay!!!) and you can see them when she smiles really big.

We go for Lila's 4-month check up in a few weeks, June 9th, so I'm eager to see what she will weigh then. She only weighed 10 pounds a little less than two months ago!  She still wants to eat every 1 1/2 - 2 hours, so I still feel like I'm either attached to her or attached to a bottle in someway!

Also, she still isn't sleeping through the night (only 4-6 hour stretches), and loves waking up at 4 and 5 and 6...But I've been letting her cry herself back to sleep (that sounds so awful!), which only takes her 10 minutes so I don't actually have to get up with her all of those times. The good news is, she naps fabulously!!! She took a 2 1/2 hour nap in her crib today! No "crying it out" necessary. Her naps usually range between 1 -2 1/2 hours, and she takes them two times, sometimes three times a day. She is on such a good nap schedule that I've been hesitating leaving the house during her nap times so that she gets used to this schedule and sticks to it. She always takes her first nap within 1 1/2 hours of waking up (which is usually 10:30) and her second nap starts between 2:30-3:30. This doesn't give me much time to run errands in between, but I don't want to mess up a good thing, ya know?!?!

Well, that's all for now! Have a great Memorial Day Weekend! Thank a veteran or active duty military member this weekend! (Thank you my wonderful husband, Josh!!!)
