I’ve been bad about saving all of the Hadley updates for her monthly post, and I know there are some grandparents out there who wouldn’t complain about not having to wait so long, so here’s a mid-month mini update.
Hadley is cutting her 4th tooth! I’m pretty sure teeth numbers 3, 4, and 5 have all been trying to cut through at the same time, making for some rough nights. I can now feel the top right-middle tooth and see and feel the right incisor tooth in addition to her bottom two teeth. It makes her look like such a big girl.
She started “waving bye bye” a couple days ago, as well! Although she just sort of holds her arm up to about chest level and moves it back and forth, we’re pretty sure that’s what she’s doing. It’s still pretty random, but she’s been doing it to Matt in the evenings after her bath when I’m about to take her to put her down. She’ll also do it when she and I are going from one room to another – like she’s saying “bye room!”
And, she’s been kind of doing this for awhile, but just started consistently drinking out of a sippy cup! Her favorite is her straw-sippy, but she will also drink out of a regular one as well.
Excuse the flash-photo below. I didn’t have enough daylight to catch her in the act without it being blurry. Oh, and the bedhead. She just woke up from her nap. And the spit up on her onesie. Really no excuse for that… I was just too lazy to change her outfit. But y’all, look at this sweetheart. She looks like such a big girl drinking out of a sippy cup!
