Our playful little Globug really hammed it up for the camera this week; so much so that I had trouble choosing highlights for this post (you can find other cute photos that didn’t make the cut at the beginning of her Fourth Month photo set). We experienced what was probably our most fun bath time this week, as Gloria made an incredible discovery: splashing. Kenny and I got soaked, but we didn’t discourage her as we were having a blast.
This weekend, we took Gloria on her first post-partum trip to Portland, to meet up with Shawn and Jessica. She slept for most of the drive, waking for a feeding about 30 minutes before we reached our destination. While in Portland, we shared a room with Gloria for the first time since she transitioned to her crib, which gave us an opportunity to test-drive the Peapod we purchased for Thailand. The Peapod seemed to work fine, but we noticed that Gloria had a horrible time sleeping because she spent most of the night fighting to get out of her swaddle blanket. In fact, she writhed around so much that in the morning I found her lying next to the tent (note to self: close the zipper). Once we got home, we decided to ditch the swaddle cold turkey. She seems to be getting more restful sleep as a result, as evidenced by the fact that she generally wakes up in the same part of the crib where I put her down. One S down, four more to go.
