4 months!

Dear Reese,
I can't believe you are 4 months old! It seems like both forever and just yesterday that you made your appearance in our lives! You have made our lives much more entertaining and have added an incredible amount of value into our family! We can't wait to see what you do with your life and what impact you make on this earth!

We went to the doc today and here are our stats:
Weight: 12 pounds, 12 ounces {20%!!!!!!!}
Length: 23 inches {10%}
Head: 15.8 inches {10%}

You have tripled your birth weight in just 4 months! Way to pack on the pounds!

This has been a month of all new things for you:

Sucking your thumb {finally gave up on the paci and just let you roll with the thumb--I'll deal with the consequences later!}

Sitting {assisted} and playing with electronic equipment! {This photo was not staged AT ALL haha.}

New toys! Some assistance is still needed for the exersaucer, but you were definitely interested!

Haha, this would be a big fat FAIL! I'm sure in just a few short months, this blog will be filled with you splashing and laughing in the duckie bath. For now, you don't enjoy it. at all.

Rice cereal!!! Haha, this pic sums up our experience with the whole thing!

Other facts about our 4-month-old!
~ Loves blowing raspberries and "talking"
~ Not a fan of rolling over. She would prefer to slither across the floor than to roll.
~ Loves to watch the fish tank, Baby Einstein movies, ceiling fans, and lights
~ She's been sleeping through the night since about 6 weeks {or, when we learned of the amazing miracle blanket}
~ Still sleeping swaddled
~ Goes to bed between 7 and 8 and wakes up around 6!
~ Eating 6 ounces every feeding
~ Wearing 0-3 month clothes
~ Wearing size 1 diapers
~ Wishes really badly that she could sit {or stand} on her own!
~ Kicking her feet like a maniac!
~ Chewing and drooling like a maniac!
~ She is not the easiest to feed. She has learned to hold the bottle, but has only figured out how to push it out of her mouth. This occasionally presents problems.
~ Grabbing and holding onto Mr. Lion {lovie} and burp cloths

As you can see, the girl is busy! I can only imagine what the next few months will bring! Can't wait! We love you Reesie!
