Aurelia - 4 Months


Only one week late; I'm getting better ;) This last month has been a whirlwind. We spent your first Christmas with your Mimi and Pépère in Massachusetts, and then headed down to Philadelphia for your baptism and to ring in the New Year with your Grammie and Pap. Since then, we've just been having fun at home.

We hit the "4 Month wakeful" this month, which resulted in you going from sleeping 12+ hours straight to waking 2-3 times every night. You -- and I -- are tired. You've started trying to sit up when lying down and are getting really good at manipulating objects in your hands. You're strong! Taking things away from you can prove to be rather difficult.

You've started enjoying the bath and kicking your not-so-little legs around in the water. You also giggle heartily when I blow raspberries on your tummy and when Daddy cheers for Villanova basketball. Toys you are enjoying include a stuffed elephant with lots of dangly rings and things and your stuffed giraffe. You've tried to make out with the giraffe on occasion.

Gas. It's the only time you cry; when you have it. I must say the little grunts you make as you're trying to pass it are quite hilarious, though. You even do them in your sleep. You still won't take a binky, and given that your sister is so attached to hers we are not going to push it! You also hate loud noises. If something falls or there is a random sudden noise you freak out.

Weight & height:
At your 4 Month appointment last week you weighed in at 16 lbs. 7 oz. and 24 inches! Short and chunky. Your head circumference jumped to the 97th percentile so your Pediatrician recommended we have an ultrasound of that giant noggin just to make sure nothing is wrong. It isn't. You were so good during the procedure; it didn't bother you at all! You are still in size 3 diapers and are wearing your cloth diapers on the middle setting (does that make sense?) We're starting to venture into 6-9 Month clothes, but you are mostly still in 3-6 Months.

I forgot to get a photo of you in this with the feet folded over, but it is seriously the cutest thing ever. 
I will remember soon, I promise.

My favorite photos this month:

At 4 Months your sister was almost completely bald! So far, you only have a bald spot on the back of your head where it rests along the rock 'n' play. Hoping you won't lost it all like she did.

P.S. I need to find a better watermarking program. Any ideas?
