Kendall Paige, you are four months old!
You had your 4 month appointment yesterday. You weighed 14 lbs and 1 oz. Your head circumference was 16 ½ in. You are 24 1/2 inches long. All three of these are in the 75%. Your appointment also included more yucky shots! You slept most of the day away after that.
You are eating every three to four hours. You have gone from being completely bottle fed to mostly nursing. Cereal is in your near future.
You are still sleeping through the night. Occasionally you want an early 4AM snack, but then you go back to sleep. A lot of the time you will sleep until 6:30. You like to turn in pretty early. By 7:30, you want your last feeding and by 8 or 8:30 you are asleep for the night. You have slept the last 2 nights in the nursery in your crib. You are sleeping a little better in there than your much too small bassinet in mom and dad’s room. Although Mom and Dad hated to see you go, it was time.
This was the month we said goodbye to the swaddle. It took a couple of days to get use to life on the outside but now it is going great!
After weeks of being on a 3 hour schedule, we are trying a four hour schedule. You eat and stay up for 2 hours, and then you sleep for 2 hours. We’ve had so many schedule interruptions lately that you are more accustomed to your 3 hour schedule still.
You are forever keeping your hand in your mouth! Mom is starting to think you are part cannibal! And you are not a huge fan of your pacifier anymore. You will take it occasionally, or if being held in church, to go to sleep.
You are still wearing size one diapers. You have about 15 left, then you are moving up to size 2. You are wearing 6 to 9 month clothes, although a lot of the 6’s are getting too small.
You have the sweetest smile. And love to “talk” to mom and dad. We like it pretty well too.
We thank God daily for the treasure of being your parents!
