*notices her feet and loves to grab at them and watch them move
*has become interested in her doggy, Cody (she reaches for him and will follow him around the room with her eyes)
*loves to feel faces (noses especially, lol)

Sleep:

I used to be able to put her down around 9 and she would sleep until about 3:30, nurse, go back to sleep, wake again at 5:30 to nurse and then sleep until around 7ish and we'd be up for the day. For about the past month, she's been waking SEVERAL times throughout the night (ughhhh!!). I don't think she's teething. (Believe me, I'm keeping an eye on those gums!) I just pray it doesn't last much longer!!

I cannot believe how much she's grown and changed this month. She's picked up on so many new things! She has developed such an adorable personality..she's a hoot! I'm enjoying the Mommy ride and taking it all in!:) Bring on month 5....

She is too cute! Sleep will get better, I'm speaking from experience. And Collin just turned 7 months and still doesn't have any teeth. I thought I was going to punch the next person that told me "he's probably just teething"

that seems to be the reason everyone gives for anything right now, lol

Well technically it takes 3 to 5 months from the time a tooth finishes forming down in the gums until it breaks the skin, so if there's a lot of slobber, than it could be that...

My best guess though would be that's hungrier at night, and wants more food. Have you guys ever given her a bottle? If so, and she already will take one for you or 'Daddy', you could try giving her rice cereal in her bottle right before bed. It usually puts them out for a sounder night's sleep! Hope something works soon!
