Hadley 4 Months


You are 4 months old today!  You have officially "seen" your first olympics.  You love to watch the ice skaters and the skiers/snowboarders.  I don't know if it's all the white, or the flying colors, but something definitely catches your eye!

-You are 24 1/4 inches long (growth spurt!!) and you weigh 13 lbs. 8.5 oz.
-You moved up to size 2 diapers pretty quickly after our 3 month post.
-You still fit in your 3 month clothes, although they are starting to get snug.  No more 0-3 month clothes!  You've moved on to 3-6 month outfits.
-You are rolling over like a champ!  But only to one side.  We are working on rolling the other way!
-You grab for toys on your own now and you even have favorites! (Sophie the giraffe and your pink ball are on the top of your list, I think!)
-You still smile all the time.  It's the most beautiful smile!

-You have giggled a total of 3 times!  I'm not sure what makes you laugh, but once I find out, you better believe I'm going to do it all the time!
-You like to "talk" when you nurse.  It's so funny!
-You discovered your toes and like to help with diaper changes by holding them for me.
-You have started trying to hold your bottle at night.
-You still nurse about every 3 hours during the day.
-You are taking a bottle once during the night.  You take about 5-5 1/2 ounces.
-Since you can roll over now, we stopped swaddling you!  You knock your paci out of your mouth frequently so we battle that in the middle of the night now.  But for the most part you do really well.  A lot of the time you will be asleep on your tummy when I check on you!

-Watching Marley!  You think he's so funny and want to play with him!
-Standing up at your play table.
-Chewing on Sophie the Giraffe and playing with your pink ball
-Watching tv.  You stop crying immediately if you see it.
-Rolling over...and over...and over. :)
-Chewing on anything you can get your hands on...including your fingers!

-Taking your zantac.
-Rolling on to your belly and being unable to roll onto your back.
-Being unable to see mommy or daddy.
-starting to be wary of strangers

You are changing every day!  You are such a smart little girl and I love cheering you on.  You get so proud of yourself when you do something new!  Thank you for bringing such joy to my life.  You are so precious to me!
