Cecilia and Mommy: 4 Months Old

Cecilia
Nap time is still a crapshoot. Some days are better than others, but there's still not an ounce of regularity when it comes to duration. Fortunately bed time is pretty straightforward and she sleeps really well at night. We're talking 6PM - 6AM well here, and it makes life so much better.

I really need to start keeping better track of the cute little Cecilia stories I want to share because by the time I sit down to write this post, my brain is totally empty (more on that later).  All I know is that in the last couple of months, my Peanut has changed from a tiny little grump to a generally smiley and happy baby.

Mommy
It is absolutely amazing to me that I have any hair left on my head after this past month. I knew it was going to happen but I'm still shocked at the quantity of lost hair. I've been shedding worse than Charlie and he's a freaking dog. I'm constantly picking my hairs out of Cecilia's little hands and off of my clothes. I really hope it ends soon because I won't have any hair left if it doesn't.

When I was pregnant, I read about the forgetfulness phenomenon known as pregnancy brain. I never experienced this alleged pregnancy brain to the degree it's often described so I considered myself lucky. Now, mom brain, on the other hand has become a legitimate issue. I can't keep conversations that I've had with people in my head longer than the duration of the actual conversation unless it's important and I know that fact. I'm constantly asking myself if I told someone something, so if I'm quieter than usual, it's possible I'm trying to figure out if I told you something already.
