Four Months Old *November 13, 2011*

Another month has flown by, and Alli is four months old! That newborn stage has definitely come and gone, and we've moved onto rolling around and even a little solid foods. She is still changing weekly, and right now she looks like her daddy's twin! 
Here's what you're up to this month:

*you weigh 12 pounds 6 ounces and are 22.75 inches long. (We had your 4 month well-baby check up this morning, so these weights are actually accurate)
*you did so much better with your shots this time and didn't scream quite so loud. I hate those shots :(

*your sleeping patterns haven't changed much in the last two months. You still sleep swaddled. You go to bed at 8pm, but you still like to wake between 1 and 2 (I'm starting to let you cry it out until at least 2), as well as 4 and 5, and up for good at 8.
*you turn in circles in your bed at night. I will lay you down with your head to the right of the crib and wake up with your head to the left of the crib. You love to wiggle your way around.

*you take two distinct naps a day now. One nap is between 10:30 and 11 and lasts about 1-1.5 hours. Your second nap is between 2:30-3 and lasts until around 5:30. We usually have to wake you up from your second nap!
*you nurse the best right when you wake up from sleeping (naps and at night). Other than that, you would rather snack on a bottle (an ounce or two at a time) than nurse, unless you are super hungry. You are definitely a snacker and don't like a huge meal except for certain times of the day (right before bed or in the morning).
*you still use Avent bottles and will take anywhere between 2-4 ounces at a time. But, mainly, as I said above, you just snack throughout the day.
*you still love your Mam paci's, especially at night, which gets tiring to constantly put it back in for you!

*you've graduated to size 2 diapers this past month.
*you are wearing mainly 3 month clothes, but still wear some 0-3 month clothes. You can also fit into some of your sister's old 3-6 month sleepers.
*you can laugh now! You started laughing out loud right after your 3-month birthday. It sounds so precious!!
*you also blow rasberries quite a bit.

*you are working on rolling over from your back to your belly. You are getting so close and love to roll onto your side to sleep.
*you have gotten to where you LOVE your little lamb swing! You spend most of your naps in there, but you don't sleep in it at night at all unless it isn't turned on.

*you still love to kick the animals above your pack-and-play.
*you will grab anything within your reach! You even enjoyed grabbing your spoon to put it in your mouth when we fed you your first taste of oatmeal!
*you also love to hold onto your giraffe lovey. You also love to chew on your blankets and loveys.

*you LOVE to stand!! You are happiest when you can either lay down and kick or stand up on someone's lap.
*you still love to smile, especially after I get done nursing you in the morning and after your naps. You will always give me the biggest grins.

*you still love your feet and grab them every chance that you get!
*you celebrated your very first Halloween this past month. You dressed up like a ladybug, jack-o-lantern, and a strawberry (your main costume). You enjoyed riding in the stroller behind your sister who was trick-or-treating for the first time.
*you also flew on an airplane for the very first time this month. You did very well on the flight to Atlanta, but caught a cold and had a little bit of a rough time on the way back to Texas (so did mommy with her cold too!).
