four months

  • you weigh 12 lbs.
  • you are 23 1/2 inches.
  • you are in a size 1 diaper.
  • you are mostly in 0-3 month and 3 month clothes, but are about to move up to 6 month pajamas. you're still not wearing a lot of 3-6 month yet.
  • you still are wearing size newborn shoes!
  • you started sleeping in your own room in your crib a little over a week ago.
  • you sleep all through the night from 8-8:30pm until about 6-6:30am.
  • you will go back to sleep after nursing at 6am until around 9, so you and i sleep late every morning!
  • you nurse every 3 hours during the day.
  • you take a morning and afternoon nap.
  • you look at sydney a lot now. sometimes when you're fussy, i will call her and you will stop fussing and watch her.  she can be pretty entertaining.  =)
  • you will lay on your play mat and play for a long time by yourself now. sometimes you will just lay there and talk.
  • you will sit in your bumbo seat, but after a little bit, your neck muscles get tired and you start to slump over.
  • you love biting and sucking on your teethers. i keep a bag of them in the refrigerator for you, and everywhere we go we take one of your teether pals (aka elephant and rabbit).
  • i think you may turn out to be little like me after all!  now if only you'll like ballet!
  • you made another quick trip to jackson to see family, and you didn't cry the whole way there. i was so proud of you! you were good most of the way home, except for the last hour.
  • you're still a little small for your exersaucer. once you gain more neck and back control, i know you will love it. you look at all of the toys on it in amazement.
  • you love to be cuddled up with a blanket when it's time to sleep.
  • you are very attached to your pacifier, except when you are good and asleep. then you will spit it out for the night.
  • you had your first christmas! we had a blast! you mostly got toys!
  • you still don't have a tooth cutting through. i feel of your gums several times a day.
  • you had your first little fall.  i think it scared you more than anything, and it really scared me!  you fell off of the little daybed in the middle room.  i learned really quick that you are scooting too much to leave you on the bed.  you had a little bruise on your cheek through christmas.
  • you are starting to rub your eyes when you're sleepy.
  • you like to hold on to your paci while you suck it going to sleep.
  • you look at me and smile a lot during the day.  it's the best thing ever.
you make my heart smile.

Love that last is too cute!!! Little tip if you haven't tried it - stick towels or blankets around her in the exersaucer and she can enjoy it now! Love watching Austin grow!
