Her 4 month well baby appointment was on the 25th (at 4 months exactly). Little girl weighs 13 lbs 8 oz!!!! She's in the 50th percentile for weight. She's 23 inches long, which is the 11th percentile I believe. She's still in 0-3 month clothes & size 1 diapers. Even the doctor told me she's petite. She really is. She's not super chunky & her limbs are long like mine. She's dainty. & freaking adorable.
She's doing fantastically. Aside from her 3 month growth spurt, she usually sleeps through the night anywhere between 6 & 11 hours. Of course, for me to get that much sleep I'd have to go to sleep right after her, which I never do, so I'm still sleep deprived. She figured out how to grab things a couple of weeks ago. She really wants my phone. She hasn't rolled over yet, but she sure tries. She can stand like a pro. & she likes to try to get out of her car seat. She thinks she's big. I'm not ready to attempt solids with her yet. I'm thinking we'll do that at 6 months. She is easily distracted by her daddy. A couple of weeks ago we were having FHE & singing an opening hymn while she was nursing. As soon as Gabe started singing she came off the boob & stared at him through the whole song. As soon as it was over she popped right back on. It was hilarious.
Bobo the sheep & her hippo.
When strangers talk to her.
Her play gym.
Sleeping with both arms above her head.
Sucking her hands.
Being in one position for too long.
Being in her car seat for too long.
Being alone while I shower.
Having her nose messed with.
Gabe & I have been doing great. I'm SLOWLY getting things moved around the house in preparation for child proofing the house. & decluttering in general. We've moved a few bookshelves. I've covered a couple of diaper boxes with material to store craft supplies in my living room. It's a really slow process cause the only time I can really do those things are when Peyton's asleep. She's not big on napping & since I like to rest when she does, the evenings don't see too much activity for me. At least the last few days since she's been a butt at night with all this adorable energy that I don't have. I'm pretty exhausted.
She's a grump when she
wakes up from naps.
