4 Months Update

Elley, you are 4 months old!
April 11
Which means you're a third of a year old. You weigh 10 lbs 14 ozs (5th%ile), have a head circumference of 39.9 cms (25th%ile), and are 23.23" (16th%ile).

You're pretty much wearing 6 month (sometimes called 3-6 month) clothing, although a few items that size are way too big and other are getting quite tight. Funny enough there's actually a newborn outfit or two you still fit into. We just moved you up to size 2 diapers and when you wear a bumgenius you have two rows unsnapped in the front.
Tummy Time
March 14
You're still an awesome sleeper. I can't remember the last time where you slept less than 10 hours. Even more remarkable your daddy set you down in your crib without rocking you to sleep one night and you just went to sleep on your own.

You're still a great eater too. We're nursing everyday when you wake up and then go to sleep, plus more on the weekends. During the day when you're a daycare you have 4 4-ounce bottles and drink every last drop. Although considering how little you've put on in the past 2 months, and that you're down to the 5th%ile, your doctor thinks we should up the amount you're drinking each day. But since you have no problem drinking 16 ounces a day, I can't imagine you'll have any problems with a little more.

Speaking of daycare you seem to be doing really well there. You're the youngest baby there by far, and supposedly all the workers want to come by and hold you. All the babies seem curious about you too, and are always trying to get your attention.

Sleeping Through Your Uncle's Birthday Dinner, March 28
You're smiling a ton now, but haven't quite figured out how to laugh. You're getting close, but instead it's more like a high pitched scream you let out while you're smiling.
First Time Riding in the Stroller
First Time Facing Forward in Your Stroller, March 29
You love being held in a standing position, and will get upset if you're not upright so you can see what's happening. You also love chewing on things, and anytime you get something in your hands it goes straight to your month.

April 5
You rolled over from back to front, although only once for your dad. But ever since then I've been working towards swaddle-weaning and leaving one hand free at night. As I started out this post by saying, it hasn't impacted your sleeping and you're still down all night long.
April 5
We've had such, such a great month with you, especially as you're starting to show a bit more of your personality. You really are such a chill baby and most times are more than content just to sit back and observe all that's going on around you.

I can only just imagine how much more your personality is going to blossom and grow as your keep getting older!

  1. Aw, she is so cute! I can't believe she is already 4 months old, though! That is awesome that she continues to be such a great sleeper!!!

  2. You look great, Shosh! And so happy! Can't wait to meet you, "Elley"!

  3. She is so cute! I love reading these milestones. I swear I say this on everyone's blog, but it never fails to amaze me how quickly babies grow. Like, it's one thing to understand scientifically, but another thing to observe firsthand. Or secondhand through a blog.

    1. So I'm clearly a month late on replying, but yes, that's so true. It really is a little unbelievable how much changes in a few short months, especially since most things really do stay the same in such a short period of time.

  4. I love that stage when you can put them in their bed at night and they fall asleep on their own. She seems so chill :)

  5. Adorable! Congratulations on having a chill baby :)
