4 Months


Oh wow polka dots! I love polka dots...
Okay, are we done yet?

I am about a week late posting this, but I wanted to wait until we went to her 4 month well check to get her stats. My little babes is 4 months old now! She is learning new things and growing more everyday! This was the first time after vaccines she ran a low grade fever, but she is happy and in good spirits today. The pedi said we could starts solids anytime between now and 6 months, but for that babies at 4 months of age formula or breast milk is still usually sufficient. So unless becomes ravenous, or starts to show more readiness signs, we are going to wait another month or two before we introduce solids. Well that and because I can bear the thought of her growing up ; )

- She weighs 13 lbs. 6 oz. (50th percentile), is 24 inches long (50th percentile), and her head is a whopping 16 3/4 (90th percentile!) Wowza! Kay had a big head too, but never 90th percentile!
- She eats 5-6 oz. every 3-4 hours during the day.
- She still STTN, sleeping from 8-8:30pm to 6:30-7:00 am. She goes down awake in her crib, I turn on her seahorse, give her a binky and within 10 min. she's out. No fuss, no muss.
- She is still in size 1 diapers.
- She really gets around! She can roll from her back to her stomach, but has only gone the other way once. Usually when I go in her room to get her in the mornings she is on her stomach. She rolls, and wiggles and cant be trusted to stay in one spot now. If you put her on her play mat, within 5 min. she's on the carpet somewhere.
- She wakes up and talkes to herself, she never cries in the mornings. She'll just babble and babble.
- I think we might be teething. She is drooling constantly and EVERYTHING goes in her mouth.
- She is becoming "socially aware" as my pedi called it. She will cry at a unfamiliar face that she doesn't like. (She cried every time she looked at my grandpa this past weekend, and cried when she looked at the pedi yesterday).
- She's found her feet! And even puts them in her mouth from time to time.
- She JUST started laughing this week...like real belly laughs!

- She loves: her Cindy doll, Sophie, bath time, rolling around on her play mat, chewing on stuff, and her feet, specifically her left one.
- She hates: being cradled, her sister smothering her, being on her tummy (for the most part), and getting in her car seat.

Aww, she is getting so big:) Miss M is absolutely beautiful though! Super jealous that you are getting so much sleep! Maybe our next baby will be a better sleeper, a girl can hope, right?

I love the polka dot dress, she is too cute.
I noticed you used K's full name in this post. I know you are very careful not use the kiddies real names. Just a heads up if you want to edit that out.
