Four Months

This little cutie was four months old this past Friday, 2-12-10.

Time has FLOWN since October, and I can hardly believe we're already here, a third of her first year already behind us.

Miss Presley, what are you up to these days?

-You are weighing in at 15lbs 11oz (90th percentile) and are 26in long (97th percentile). A very healthy girl!

-You are wearing size 2 diapers and just this week moved up to 6mos. sleepers. Still wearing some 3-6 months clothes and sleepers, but quickly outgrowing all of it.

-You smile ALL the time and are SO happy. It takes very little to get you to smile, usually just a glance in your direction and you absolutely light up.

-You laugh out loud at us all, but mostly Sister. She delights in getting you to laugh, and you oblige her quite often. Mattie insists to us that she is your favorite, and I'm beginning to think she may be right.
-You are ticklish, which is just too cute.
-We just upped your bottles to 7oz this week, and you're getting b/t 5 and 6 bottles a day.

-You are eating rice cereal every morning and most evenings. We haven't gotten consistent on the evening feedings yet. Will likely start some veggies soon!

-Still sleeping in your bassinet in Mommy and Daddy's room, but are very close to outgrowing it.

-You are sleeping between 9 and 10 hours most nights. Usually from about 8:30-6:00, or somewhere in that area. Some mornings, you're awake by 5:00, but I can put you in bed next to me, and we snuggle back to sleep for another hour or so. I secretely love this, and it's part of the reason I haven't moved you to your baby bed yet. Sister moved to her baby bed at 6 months, but I'm thinking we'll have to move you sooner because your just getting so BIG!

-Still getting swaddled everynight, but just the upper body. I don't see an end to this anytime soon. You love to be swaddled, and it seems to help you sleep.

-Haven't rolled over yet, but getting pretty close. Sister rolled over at 5 months, and I expect you'll do the same.

-Right now, you are reaching and grabbing everything that you can get and chewing it...bibs, burp cloths, hair, blankets, toys, anything you can get your hands on goes to the mouth to chew. No teeth yet though.
-You are truly one of the happiest babies I've ever been around. I don't remember Mattie being quite this smiley and friendly. You wake up ready to eat, but as soon as your bottle is finished, you are all smiles and coos and remain that way most of the day. You have brought lots of joy to our already happy house, and I know that none of us could adore you more. You are loved, Sweet Girl...loved to pieces!

Presley's first four months...Wow! How her hair has grown in on top!!
