You are four months old today!
Our sweet baby girl, you are not a newborn anymore. You have definitely become a baby with a bubbly, happy personality. You love to laugh, smile, and talk to us all day. You are so happy all the time and you love to kick and smile and play on your tummy time mat. If we let you, you will play for a solid hour on your tummy time mat.
You adore your sister and light up when she is around. Your favorite game is when Elizabeth lies down next to you on the tummy time mat and helps you grab your toys and the two of you play together. You are always watching Elizabeth and you try to talk to her whenever she is around.
Dad took you to the doctor today for your four-month visit and brought home a great report! You currently weigh 14 pounds and 14 ounces and you are 25 inches long. You got four vaccines today and did not enjoy any of them. Your doctor said it was okay to start you on baby food if we want to, so you will probably get some peas or green beans in the next few days.
You are wearing 6 month clothes and some 6-9 month clothes. You wear a size 2 diaper, but I am not sure how much longer that will last. You take two naps a day, usually 9-11am and then again 1-4pm. You go to sleep around 6pm and usually wake up around 7am.
This morning, when your dad went to get you up, you had rolled over onto your stomach. And later in the morning you rolled onto your stomach and then rolled back onto your back. Yikes! I am not ready for you to be rolling back and forth.
You love to suck on your hand or your fingers. This helps you go to sleep or calm down if you are upset. You are drooling A LOT, so we think you might be teething (or just drooling because your fingers are in your mouth all. the. time.).
This month we have been mostly at home since I cannot walk around. You did celebrate your first New Years and played at Kelly and Jared's house until you went to sleep around 6:30pm. You loved watching the big kids play and then you very happily went sound to sleep.
You were baptized yesterday and we had a party in your honor (that you slept through), but you were awake in church and did a great job getting baptized.
You did meet lots of new people this month: Jared, Kelly, Kylie, Scot, Nick, Christina, Nico, Uncle Andy, Aunt Lolly, Stacy, Laura, Alice, Evie, Cathy, Darren, Matt, Claire, Jim, Anuja, and Samara.
You with Kelly on New Years Eve
You went to bed about 35 seconds after this picture was taken.
In the middle of January, Samara came over for a play date.
You went to bed about 30 minutes after she got here.
Are we seeing a trend? :)
