Lots of Pictures

This is just going to be a ton of pictures from the past few months, starting with our trip To New Your City at the end of August, right up to today. I hope the Grandmas enjoy.

4 and 5

Well, here she is at four and five months! Sabine continues to be a mellow happy baby. When people ask about her disposition we just say, if she is awake she is happy and that really is true.  When she was four and a half months old Sabine started to really roll around, and she has now mastered the art of the roll, and the scoot, so much so that she scooted off the bed! Needless to say she is no longer taking naps on our bed. I think she is going to start crawling pretty soon, given enough time she can usually army crawl or wriggle herself over to where she wants to be.  Sabine is very chatty and has a great laugh, she is starting to make more sounds that are more like words (I'm not saying she is talking, but you know what I mean) than just cooing and shrieking.

She has a pretty regular schedule of two naps a day one about one to two hours after she wakes up around 6:30-7:00 (wish she would sleep in a bit more) that lasts about an hour, and then a second nap around 1:00-2:00 that lasts from two to four hours.  That last nap is nice because Nico is usually napping at the same time, then I can take a nap too. We stopped swaddling Sabine at the start of the month (that coincided with her falling off the bed, which she did while she was swaddled). I am totally thrilled about not swaddling her because it was a hard job, Sabine is really strong, and really good at breaking out of my SUPER tight swaddles, all I can say is thank goodness for her sleep sack!


This and that

Just some images that have been hanging around on the desktop.


Yup, I'm doing these for Sabine too. We love this little gal, she is such a happy little thing! And bless her wee heart, she has been sleeping really well, I'm talking waking up only once if at all during the night, dear sweet child. She is very alert and observant, she really looks at you and I swear she understands what I'm saying to her.  She is super strong, this kid can break out of almost any swaddle. We had to modify how we swaddle her because she was getting free and whacking herself in the face.  Now we wrap what is basically a scarf around her several times and tie it in a knot. We are serious about our swaddling around here. Sabine has started to grab things and put them in her mouth.  It is really fun to see her concentrating on controlling her hands and aiming for her mouth.  What else can I tell you about our little beanie? She smiles easily and is a pretty easygoing happy baby.  We all love her tremendously!
