4 Months Old

Well our little, big girl is doing great!  She's a bit behind her age in weight, but is still doing good with length.  We're working in some more feeding time and trying to get her calories up - a problem every girl should get to have!  :)  She's starting teething, so sometimes this happy little girl is a bit fussy and clingy... but cuddling (and the occasional Tylenol!) seems to help lots.  

At 4 Months Old, Kate:
  • loves her Sophie the Giraffe toy & Goodnight Moon book, hearing herself talk & squeal, blowing "raspberries", putting her feet in her mouth
  • hates teething, apparently :( 
  • sleeps 10-11 hour stretches during the night and naps a little less during the day, now 
  • when she's being fed with a bottle, will hold it up herself! we're still beside her to help if needed, but she'll hold it with both hands and seem pretty proud of herself 
  • is rolling over like crazy - she won't stay on her back for long... it's almost immediately to her tummy. If she starts on her tummy, she'll lay that way awhile, but eventually get to her back 
  • still loves her swing, but her Bumbo chair (where she sits up like a big girl) is becoming a fast favorite 
  • weighs a tiny 10.10 lbs and is 24 inches long 


You're new here, aren't you?

Well it's very nice to meet you, Mr. Giraffe

Don't mind me - I do this with all my toys

It's ok... you'll really like it here
