27 Months Update

27 Months
You're 27 months old! Or really 2 and a quarter years old.
December 30
You weigh 22 lbs and 1 ounce (0.99%ile). You're wearing mainly size 18 months clothes and size 6 shoes. You wear size 4 diapers, although we are in the midst of potty training.
January 2
You really have become a true person, with quite a strong personality. I know my last update I said you weren't talking in complete sentences yet, and that's hard to believe because you talk so well. There are times where pronouns confuse you (saying things like "I want Mommy to carry you,") but overall you talk just like anyone else would.
January 24
You have a crazy memory and can recall a surprising amount. The other day you came home from the grocery store and started listing off all the things you couldn't get. Or if we tell you something at night, you'll ask for it the first thing when you wake up.
February 5
You surprise us some times with the things you say, like when you told me, "Mommy's Shoshanah," or when you said your first and last name together. You know your colors (at least most of the time), can identity left from right (again, at least most of the time), know your shapes, and love counting.
February 12
Your favorite tv shows are ABCD (Wheel of Fortune) and Elena (of Avalor). When we go out to eat you either ask for chicken and french fries or chicken and fruit. You love cheese, to the point we have to limit it or you'd eat an entire block.
February 25
At night when you go to sleep you have a whole menagerie of animals keeping you company. There's Po (your hippo), animal (a seahorse), rabbit (a sock rabbit my mom had sewn), a giant monkey, and four or so books. Your daddy normally puts you to sleep ending each time with reading Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and Goodnight Moon.
March 3
You're still a little unsure about your brother. Don't get me wrong, if you see him crying you'll make sure he has his bebe, or you'll give him hugs and kisses. But you aren't a fan of Mommy or Daddy holding him when you want our attention and have no problem telling us, "Put Bear in his bed!"
March 10
Honestly, you've become so much fun and spending time with you can be a blast. I will end this post by mentioning that you've started saying "Love you," which is the most awesome thing and sounds so incredibly adorable coming from you.

4 Months Update

4 Months
You're 4 months old! (And even more impressive, I'm managing to write this update somewhat on time, but we'll see when it actually gets posted.)
January 29
You are 23.6 inches long (5th%ile), weigh 10 lbs 1 oz (0%ile), and have a head circumference of 39.5 cm (2nd%ile).
February 1
You're still wearing 3 months clothes and size 1 diapers.
February 5
You continue to be one of the most content babies out there. You're pretty smiley. When I get dressed in the morning I have you laying down on the floor and you'll just smile back at me as I'm getting reading. You'll even laugh when someone tickles your stomach which is one of the most adorable things ever.
February 10
You're getting pretty good with your hands bringing everything to your month. You're even coordinated enough to bring your bebe back to your month after it drops out. And despite your Daddy insisting on keeping your hanging car seat toy on the left side of the handle we've yet to see a preference to being left handed.
February 14
You've managed to roll over from your back to stomach. (February 12th was the first time.) It isn't necessarily consistent but it's happened a handful of times.
February 17
It's funny when your sister started daycare she was the youngest by several months and then the next oldest babies were several months younger. Not the case this time around! Most of the babies are right around your age, with two even having older sisters who are friends with your big sister. But even though you may not be the youngest, you are still the smallest just like her!
February 21
You're definitely getting more and more curious about the world around you! And there's so much still to discover. Knowing how quickly your sister has grown up we're going to blink and you'll be running around the house, so I'm trying to savor the last bit of time while you're still so teeny tiny.
February 23
Of course for comparison, here's a look at your sister at 4 months as well.

3 (& 2) Months Updates

3 Months
You're 3 months old!
2 Months
Which means I've officially missed writing your 2 months update, so here we are writing a mix of a the two.
November 29
At your 2 month visit you were 22 inches long (13th%ile), weighed 8lbs 14 oz (2nd%ile), and had a head circumference of 38 cm (9th %ile). You're wearing a mix of newborn and 3 months clothing and size 1 diapers.
December 10
You really have seemed to figure things out over the past 2 months and have become the chillest baby. Even your daycare teacher (which you started the day you turned 3 months, and is the same teacher your sister had) says your the calmest baby she's seen. Pretty much as long as you can see people you're content. In the morning as I'm getting ready for the day I have you laying down on the floor and you're perfectly fine just waiting for me.
December 14
You're a pretty smiley baby, not that I can always capture them on camera. And the day I'm writing this (1/28) you actually laughed for the first time.
December 19
You slept through the night the first time a few days before turning 2 months. After that it took a while for it to get consistent, but in the past 2 weeks it's rare that you're awake before I wake you up to start getting ready for work.
December 24
You have no problem taking a bottle and normally have 4 3.5 ounce bottle during the day. You'll nurse once when I get home from work, at bedtime, and in the morning. (Unless there's a rogue 4 am wake-up.)
January 1
You'll pretty consistently roll over from belly to back, and while you can't quite get there the other way, you're close, getting from your back to your side.
January 17
Clearly though I've already failed at making your monthly updates as consistent as your big sisters', but I have managed the photos, which means we can compare the difference between the two of you at two and three months.
