At Four Months


Whoopsie!  I almost let this one get away.  Time is just slipping through my fingers and I skipped over your four month letter.  Good thing I remembered before I forgot anything that was going on that month.  You are continuing to grow though still a petite little peanut.  You're stats at you four month appointment are 13 lbs. 8 oz. and 24 inches long.  Still enjoying AR lipil throughout the day and still spitting up wherever you please.  I've tried to explain to you that it is just not lady like to regurgitate your meal immediately following a feed but you just have not gotten the message yet.  We tried to feed you rice cereal because you just seemed so fascinated with our food but, as it turns out, you were just not a fan of the whole eating off of a spoon thing.  We'll try again next month.

You've begun to show your personality...calm, cool, and collective.  You are what everybody has determined to be an "easy" baby.  You go with the flow and hardly complain.  When you have a complaint, you make sure you are heard.  We joke that you can go from smiling to screaming in 0.5 seconds flat.  Thankfully, it doesn't happen that often.

You started rolling; from you back to your stomach at first (which is not the norm) and, eventually, from your stomach to your back.  You are so determined to sleep on your stomach.  We tried flipping you to your back and you flip right back.  You also started sucking your thumb when you are sleepy. 

Your brother still adores you and you roll around after his voice.  I imagine you will get frustrated soon that you can't keep up with him quite yet.  I've caught you eyeing his trains.  We'll see how your relationship goes when you learn how to go after them.

I can't believe how fast you are growing, darling girl.  Five months is just a blink of the eye away.

Halloween is coming and I had to have your picture done in your adorable costume.  We love you, "little buggy".
