4 Months

This month has brought lots of change.  You are now sleeping in your own room.  Mommy still struggles with the thought of you being in another room but everyday it is getting easier.  Each month your personality shines a little more.  This month you started belly laughing and smiling a lot more.  You are so alert now and aware of your surroundings.  I love being able to watch you learn and grow! I love you bunches!
Weight: 12.8 lbs - 50% percentile

Length 24.25 inches - 50% percentile

Size: You are still wearing 3 month clothes and size 1 diapers

Feeding Schedule: You like to nurse every 2.5-3 hours.  You are doing much better with the bottle.   

Sleeping Schedule: You are now sleeping in your crib.  You go to sleep around 7:00pm.  You are still waking up several times each night.  Everytime I think I have your scheduled figured out you change it up on me. 

Likes: You still love to be swaddled, baths, being rocked, going for walks, your soft pink bunny, pacifiers, watching Max run around, rolling over, playing in your jumparoo, Mommy & Daddy reading books to you, music class and sitting up.

Dislikes: Tummy time (now you just roll over), Max barking, and loud noises.

Events: This month was a big month for us on Mommy's birthday we had you baptized!  You had friends and family come from near and far to witness us take a vow along with your God Parents that we will raise you in the church and teach you about the Lord.  You a Child of God!
