Elise - 4 Months

Dear Elise,

You are 4 months old today! Everyday you learn something new and we marvel at it. Here is what you are up to:

•You haven't been weighed since your 2 month checkup, so I'm not sure what you weigh, but if I had to guess, I'd say you are right around 12lbs. We will go for your 4 month checkup this Friday, so I'll update your vitals then.

•You eat 5oz. in each bottle, every 4 hours.

•You sleep about 8 hours straight at night, usually going to bed between 9 and 10 and waking up between 5 and 6.

•You wear size 1 diapers.

•You are wearing mostly size 3 months clothing, with a few 3-6 month outfits in there. You outgrow clothing in length long before you do in weight.

•You are learning to grasp things quite well. You have figured out how to pull your binky out of your mouth, but then you get it stuck around your thumb and don't know what to do!

•You have gone from cooing to babbling and giggling. You giggle the hardest when we make the fart noise with our mouths...you are your Daddy's girl in every sense...

•Your favorite game is Airplane with your Daddy.

•You are so close to rolling over, any day now it will happen...I am not ready. Each morning, I remind you that you aren't allowed to do it while I am at work.

•You are desperate for Scarlett to pay you attention. You follow her with your eyes everywhere she moves. She is still a little jealous of you and doesn't know quite what to think yet, but she is coming around.

I don't know how we ever made it without you!

Mommy (and Daddy!)
