4 Months

Oh Bitty, you're 4 months now! I both love and hate how fast you're growing. It just amazes me how much you've changed. You know how to do so much already.

This month you:

  • Weigh 13lbs 10oz and are 24 1/2 inches long. I can't believe how much you've grown in the last 4 months! 
  • Are in some 0-3 month clothes, some 3 month, and some 3-6 months stuff. You've even worn a couple of 6 month pj's but they were too big, but nice and warm
  • LOVE daycare. I don't know if it's the kids or the woman your with, but you are so sweet, smiley and happy when you go. It warms my heart to see how happy you are, but it also makes me a little sad because of how easily you've adapted... a selfish part of me wants you to only be happy with me
  • have learned how to play with the dog. It's so funny to watch you pet her, grab her... not so funny that time you bit her... twice

  • are sleeping better at night. Not great, but better. You've figured out how to only get up once during the night. You don't do it all the time, but the nights where we get up 4-5 times are getting fewer and further between. And for that I am incredibly grateful
  • still don't nap well. You hate missing out on things, so I think you avoid naps just so you get to be a part of everything. I will try to put you down, and you're just not having it. You're so happy and sweet though, that I have to assume you're getting what you need in the sleep department
  • put everything in your mouth. Toys, fingers, blankets, (the dog), all end up getting gummed these days
  • are starting to get your first tooth! I'm so excited for you, but this whole teething process is a bummer. I hate seeing you in pain, and hate hearing you fuss. Overall, not cool.
  • you are starting to be in demand of your feedings. If I'm holding you, and your hungry, you'll wiggle and scoot to try to get to my chest. You also hold on to me when you eat, and push me a way when you're done. You like holding your own bottle too. 


  • had your first holiday... okay, I guess you had 4th of July but you were only a day old and we spent the day in the hospital. This was Halloween, and you were the cutest bitty bumblebee ever! 
  • are finding your voice. Oh my have you found your voice! You are a chatty little Cathy these days. You have full on nonsense conversations and you get so excited if we talk back to you.
  • figured out peekaboo this month. Daddy has been trying to play with you for awhile now, but you really had no interest until this month when suddenly it was Hil-A-Rious to you.
  • started a big ol' belly laugh. It was started when you played peekaboo with Daddy, and you've done it a few times now. Each time it brings tears to my eyes which is a little lame, but it's just such a beautiful sound to hear.
