I have another update for you about how things are going for Skye!
*I can’t think of anything more scary for me than attempting to cut Skye’s fingernails. She just wiggles so much and I am so nervous about it so it is officially Andrew’s job. My job is to clean her neck rolls each day though ha:)
*She is still very interested in eating her entire hand and the binky is her worst enemy.
*I don’t have a picture of this but one of my absolute FAVORITE things to see is Skye stretching. When she first wakes up and stretches those arms up as high as she can… I just can’t get enough.
*She gets just a bit of attention from me and Andrew each day.
*Skye’s mohawk doesn’t show every day like it used to because her hair has gotten a bit longer. I miss it.
*Andrew constantly has to be bouncing his leg when he is sitting down which has become one of Skye’s favorite things. This habit of his has turned into a very beneficial thing for this little girl because she likes to be bounced.
*Skye has started to recognize her name (well, we think she does). She will look towards us when we say her name and maybe that is coincidence or maybe she knows, I’m not sure.
*Look at that neck strength!!!
*I’m still freezing about 5-10 ounces of milk most days. I pump once each day when she wakes up in the middle of the night while she is eating. SOOOOO at one of the baseball games we went to, I fed Skye in our seat and I was completely covered and there was no one on the other side of me but goodness gracious, I got some weird stares! Everyone there was snacking on all sorts of food, why would they think Skye wouldn’t need some food;)
*She has found her little voice and she is proud to show it off as often as possible. The squeals, squawks, chirps, screeches, coos… she wants us to hear what she has to say.
*Still interested in every move that these two make:
*Somehow her name just fits her perfectly (in our opinion). We already can’t imagine her being named anything different. She is 100% a Skye.
*Skye has started to pay a bit of attention to Beretta. She follows her with her eyes whenever Beretta is in the room!
*Skye loves to hold on to her little blankets. She grips them tight and moves her fingers along the fabric whenever one is near. These blankets have reduced the amount of times per day she attempts pulling my hair out.
*Skye saves all of her best spit-ups for when Andrew is holding her haha… I’m serious. She always does this cute smile afterwards so it’s hard to not just start laughing hysterically when she does it.
*She is quite confused about what is going on whenever she is Facetiming with somebody.
*I just bought her first ever pair of jelly shoes so that is a big milestone for her. Jelly shoes are equivalent to gold in Brooke’s mind so I bet Skye will love them too.
*A lot of people told me they see a lot of Brooke when they saw this picture and I completely agree!
*We took a step backwards as far as sleeping goes but it could be worse right:) I’m not sure if it was from traveling or a sleep regression but we are back to her waking up 2-3 times a night. My mom said she thinks it is because she is HUNGRY because she is growing so much right now and I have to agree… Each time she wakes up she acts as though she hasn’t eaten in days. I have been really strict with my bedtime (ASLEEP BY 10) in order to get in a good chunk of sleep before she wakes up so I feel human the next day. Hoping this phase ends shortly but she starts giggling when she sees me in the middle of the night so that makes it easier.
*She has some blue eyes which I think is fitting considering her name:)
*I learned with Brooke to switch up the side that I am carrying Skye on in her carseat or when I am holding her. With Brooke I always held her on my left side and I swear (maybe it’s all in my head) it contributed to some imbalances I had and felt during my running.
That’s what’s going on in Skye’s little world these days! I can’t believe how fast it has all gone by but yet at the same time it feels like she has been with us for a very, very, long time.
