4 Months Old

My baby is already 4 months old. We had her well baby check up on the third and she did so well. She now weighs 13 pounds 3.2 ounces and is 23 1/2" long. I can't believe how much she's grown since she was born. Although when you carry her around in the infant carrier it's easy to tell that she's gotten heavier.

As far as her personality goes, boy does she have one. She is very vocal and stubborn, which means she takes after her mama. Her screaming has gone from constant to when she's bored or angry. Trust me when I say this is a good thing. Here's a few other things about her:

  • She's in size 2 diapers
  • Disney songs are still a way to calm her down especially Colors of the Wind
  • She can blow raspberries
  • We started rice cereal a few days ago and she seems to like it okay
  • Her feet are her favorite toys
  • She is a complete Daddy's girl. When he gets home from work I don't even exist to her anymore except when she's tired. Then she wants Mama.
  • The dogs are a recent discovery of hers. She absolutely loves to touch them but hasn't mastered gentle touches so Penny is the only one that tolerates her. 
  • She has amazing head control. The pediatrician told us this several times.
  • She is attempting to sit up and it looks like little baby crunches when she does it. 
  • She has a long patch of hair on the side of her head but still is mostly a baldy.
  • Sleeping is a struggle. She doesn't like to go to bed on her own. 
  • Her jumperoo is a new toy that she seems to like.
  • Bath time is the best time of the day. I have a future Olympic swimmer.
