Look who's four months old!

Age - 4 months old

Weight -14  lbs. 15 oz. (85% percentile)

Height - 24 2/4 in. (80% percentile)

Diaper Size - 2

Clothing - Wearing mostly 6 month stuff... and even some of those pants are too short!   Some of her 3 month still fits, however not for long! 

Sleeping habits - We start our bed time routine around 6:15-6:3oish. After a bath and feeding Lila, we read three books, always ending with On the Night You Were Born. She is usually pretty sleepy!   This week she's sleeping until  about 6:45 a.m.   Mike and I still love watching her on our baby monitor before we go to be.  She also no longer uses her pacifier to go to sleep... if she takes it, she spits it out or likes to grab and play with it.

Eating habits - Depending when she gets up, she nurses 1-2 times before going to Miss Sue's.  She has a 7-8 oz morning bottle with Miss Sue and a 4-5 oz afternoon bottle.   I nurse her right when we get home, then again before bed.  The doctor said we'll hold off on introducing cereal since she's doing just fine with the breastmilk still.

Favorite activity - Playing in the rainforest... as well as taking baths.

Cutest Moment of the Month - Honestly, she has so many things that just make us feel so blessed...  She is laughing for longer periods... deep belly laughs that are so cute.   She LOVES seeing Cara in the morning when we get to Miss Sue's, her face lights up for little Cara!  When I pick her up, she has the best smile on her face...  Since she's teething, she's trying to eat or "gum" everything... fingers, hands, apples from apple picking, watches, you name it she loves it.  She's also starting to cuddle with some of her blankets and toys when she's in her car seat.  Her Sophie giraffe is one of her absolute favorites.

Milestones - Lila is teething... confirmed by the doctor today.   She also is able to hold her head up a lot better as well as stand and put weight on her legs... which she loves doing.  The doctor said today she had wonderful muscle tone and her grabbing and reaching for things was a great development.   She's always grabbing for things to put in her mouth!  

 I was so excited to be up this morning and wearing my new leg warmers!

I'm ready to start my day!

 I'm exhausted from a great day at Miss Sue's that included a 2 hour nap!   I also got shots at the doctor today, so I'm zonked.  Mimi says I look like my mommy... who loved sucking her thumb!

 So sleepy!

 Dreaming of my next outfit....

 Mommy had to get out the blocks for our monthly shot!

Dreaming of what my new friend will be... boy or girl... Auntie Kellie is due any day now!!!!
