Tessa { Four Months }

Another month gone.  Man.  And no blog posts since the last update.  Sad.  We're busy.  I'm lazy.  One day I'll catch you up on someone other than Tessa!  But until then, she is FOUR months old.  What on Earth?
She is still just the most sweet, easy going baby girl I know! This was a good month.  She has given us a little bit more personality, and routine.  She is content.  Do you know how happy that makes us?  She is just so easy.  How do we get so lucky with our babies?  

Not much has really changed since the last month.  Her smiles are bigger than ever, though she is very serious and won't give many strangers
smiles, and even sometimes freaks out when someone talks to loudly to her! She loves her brothers and thinks they are like the funniest things on the planet.  We haven't gotten many full blown giggles, just a few chuckles here and there, I'm hoping those come soon!

We have had a few GI follow up appointments, and I'm happy to report that her blood work " looks great" and that we don't have to go back to the GI for six months.  Her bilirubin level came down all by itself, which they tell me is great.  She is growing, and seems to no longer have any issues with her Alpha-1.  Lets keep our fingers crossed that it stays that way.  

This month was a big one for Tessa.  She got to meet her Aunt Laura.  Sadly, she won't remember it, but we do!  She probably won't see Aunt Laura in person again until we all head to Australia in May for her wedding.  Tessa will be about 15 months old! Thank goodness for Skype these days huh?
Well this is kind of a boring update because like I said, she is just so easy going there isn't much to update on.  She is still sleeping in her bed, unswaddled.  For most of the month she was still getting up once a night, at the beginning it was twice.  I'm glad that nonsense stopped!  I wish she would get up at the same time every night so I could decide if she is actually hungry or just waking in habit, but it's all over the place, between 2- 5:30 usually. She is officially the one who has taken the longest to sleep through the night.  We love her anyway!
