Kate is 4 months old

I had this post ready on Monday but our power went out and didn't come back on until late last night. 

       Happy 4 month birthday my precious Kate Alaina! 

     You are the best baby. Unless you are sleepy, you are pretty content. And so sweet! And you are kind of attached to your momma.

    At your doctor's appointment you weighed 15 lbs 13.5 oz. (>75%).  Your length was 24 3/4 inces (>50%), and your head circumference was 16 1/4 (75%).   

    The doctor gave us the go ahead to start cereal when we want.  Momma is not in any big hurry though.  

     Your schedule is the same as last month.  During the day you are awake for an hour and a half, then you sleep for about an hour.  I have still been swaddling you but you break out of it pretty easy and pretty quick so we'll probably be retiring that soon.

    You are wearing size two diapers and 9 month clothes.  


    You are still in Mom and Dad's room to sleep. We are working on getting sister's new room together so you can move into the nursery soon.  

    You have started playing with toys.  Playing as in gripping and chewing on them.  :)

    You had a cold this past month and started waking up during the night again.  You are slowly starting to wake up later and later.  We are back to a feeding at 6:30.  Momma will take that any day over 4:30AM.

   You have started watching and laughing at Kendall.  It is so sweet to see the two of you interact now.  You are all about one another.  
  You have started laughing at us this month.  It is the sweetest sound ever.

   We thank God daily for the privilege to be your parents.  We love you!

My computer is acting up so I'll have to come back later and add a comparison collage.
