Kate is 4 months old

Kate turned 4 months old today.  Time is flying by, but I honestly can't imagine life without her.  She is such a sweet and happy little girl.

Kate, at 4 months you:

  • Weigh about 13 lbs. (we'll get an exact weight next week at your checkup)
  • Wear a size 2 diaper and 6 months clothes or 9 mos. pajamas
  • Eat at 7, 10, 1, 4, 7, 11, and usually again at 5:30 (sometimes you want a little snack at 2 am).  You don't sleep through the night anymore but I honestly don't mind.  When you take a bottle, you take about 4 oz.
  • Sleep!  You sleep from 7 pm until 7 am and nap 2 to 3 times a day.  You sleep in your own bed for naps and nighttime and you talk yourself to sleep.  I tried the soothing thing with you but it was overwhelming trying to put two girls to bed each night (often by myself).  So we tried "cry it out" for a couple of nights and it worked for you!  You're a champion, Kate!  I put you down at 7 while you're awake and you talk for a little while and then go to sleep.  It makes bed time stress-free for everyone!
  • Are very ticklish and smile and laugh when we tickle you.
  • Watch your sister and me all day long.  You love to observe.  As long as you can see us, you're pretty happy 
  • Enjoy bath time very much.  Harper sometimes helps wash your feet and legs and you just stare at her.
  • Rolled over last week.  You've rolled over a few times!
  • Started grabbing your feet today
  • drool like crazy.  Your sister was a big drooler, so it is no surprise that you are too. Bring on the bibs!
  • Suck your fingers.  
  • babble the most at night after your 7 o'clock feeding.  
  • love your baby k'tan sling.  I took you and Harper to the aquarium on Monday and you were in it so quietly for 2 hours.  You can't wait to face "out"; you're always turning your head to look around.
  • still love your mommy over daddy and I'm positive it is because you're still nursing
You are so cute, inside and out.  I can already see your personality coming out.  We love you!

One month

Four months

Harper at 4 months

Kate and Harper are finally getting a little closer.  I think Harper can finally connect with her because she gets a reaction.  Harper tickles her, give her her pacifier, sings to her, reads to her, and (if I beg or bribe) gives her hugs and kisses.  I love my girls!  Happy 4 months, Kate!
