Four months. Wow. Where has time gone? You’ve gotten so big and learned so much this month.
You had two check ups this month. At the first one on November 11, you weighed 14 pounds 9 ounces and were 25 inches. Then we had one again on November 22 and you weighed 15 pounds 6 ounces and were 26 inches. That’s almost a pound gained and a whole inch grown in just ten day. You’re head circumference was 15 3/4 inches, but I don’t know the difference or if their was even a difference because the doctor at the first appointment never told us what this was.
You’re in size two diapers now, but still in 0/3 and 3 month clothing, with a few 3/6 and 6 months when I don’t feel like going through the smaller things to find something that fits. We are starting to clean out the 0/3 and 3 month clothes from the closet and dresser because most are getting a little snug.
Laughter, coos, and squeals are what my ears are met with most days. Every morning I wake up to her talking to herself and giggling. It’s one of my favorite times of my days. We’re still met with smiles every day. It definitely brightens my day every time she greats me with one.
You’ve learned a lot this month. You rolled over both ways for the first time. You’ve figured out how to go from back to stomach multiple times, but you can’t seem to remember how to go from stomach to back again. You’ve started reaching for things more and more. You also love to grab everything. You’ll grab everything from your toys and blankets to clothes (yours and ours) and body parts. Nothing is a challenge for you.
You continue to amaze me with how you “move around” the house. While on your back, you’ll push off with your legs and start moving. More often than not, I’ll put you down to play while I work on homework and I’ll look down and you’re not where I left you.
You experienced your first Halloween this month. You did so well. You even fell asleep through half of it.
You love meal times. Your (new) doctor gave us the go ahead to give you fruits, cereal, and fruit juice. I was already giving you cereal and fruits now and then, but now we’re making it apart of our daily routine. She suggested to give you cereal twice a day, instead of the once a day I was giving you. You still prefer the pouches of organic foods over other brands of food that are easier to come across. They may be more expensive and harder to find, but at least you’re eating.
You went to a wedding for the first time this month. You did amazingly well. Never cried during the ceremony and only got fussy during the reception when you were hungry and then when you were really tired.
You used a sippy cup for the first time this month. You did so well with it and drank half of the formula I made up for you. Daddy and I were so proud of you.
I love you to the moon and back. Mommy.
