4-Month Well-Baby Check-Up and Moving

On our way to Texas we stopped by the pediatrician for Lila's four-month check-up (her last one with Dr. Keefe). She weighs 13 pounds and 2 ounces and is 24 1/4 inches tall. That moved her up to the 50th percentile for weight and she stayed in the 50th for her height. I can't believe my baby is dead average. What a perfect text-book baby :-) !!!

Some new things that she started in the past few weeks is rolling over from her back to her tummy. It's so funny to watch her as she arches her back waaaay over and then gets her hands under her body as she pushes and kicks herself over. One day she even rolled twice in a row, back to front then front to back. It was so cute to see her rolling across the floor. It makes her so happy to finally be able to accomplish this; she is so determined in everything that she tries to do!

After the check-up, we drove to the Pensacola airport to catch a ride to Texas to do our walk-thru of the new house with our builder. The walk-thru went great, and we have a tentative close date of June 24th. I'm so excited to move into this house. It is in such a neat area of Texas with so much to do close by. We drove around Galveston Island while we were visiting and ate at a neat restaurant right on the beach. The beaches aren't as bad as everyone warned us about either! The water looks more like the Atlantic rather than the emerald water of Destin, but it's not bad. The sand is a little more brown than Destin, but again, not bad! The Coast Guard has some pretty great areas to choose from, so I'm glad that Josh decided on this profession (minus the whole moving us around so often-but it will make for many memories)!

The movers are here today and tomorrow to pack up our house, and they come to load up all of our things to the truck on Wednedsay. I really can't believe that 2 years has already come and gone, and that we will no longer be living in this house! It's so surreal! We spent our last night in the house by doing what we did best in our house, getting a nice bottle of wine and watching a couple shows on DVR. It was perfect! Now, off to my parent's beach condo in Destin for a week and a half while we wait for the closing date of the 24th!!!

Lila's excited to get to the new house and her new PINK nursery!


  1. Hi KariBeth! I had wondered if you guys had already headed out. Do you need any help with anything? Let me know. I wish you and your family the best as you move on to Texas. You will be missed.

  2. I will miss you! Hopefully the CG might bring you back someday. I'll stay posted on Lila's growth though w/ the blog. Good luck and may God Bless your next chapter. xoxo, Dr J
