Hey there sweet baby girl -
I know that I didn't write an official 4 month post but since your three month was posted just days before you actually turned 4 months I thought I would wait till you turned 5 months to post the next monthly update.
So here we go...
You are changing daily! It seems that every time you wake up from a nap you are bigger. Your appetite is supporting this rapid growth pattern. You eat and eat and eat and eat. We have bumped your bottles up to 6oz every 2 hours (3 if we can keep you distracted for that long) or we would be feeding you every 30 minuets.
Even though you are eating us out of house and home it has been so special to see you develop. You want to keep up with Madi so bad and are pushing yourself to do so. You are rolling all over the place and have even started lifting your little bum up while on your tummy....the first step of crawling. Even though you aren't crawling yet you are still covering major ground pushing yourself. We can't leave you unattended anywhere. We even have to strap you down in your swing because you have began arching your back and pushing up with you feet. My little mover!!
Your little explorer personality takes you into all of Madi's toys. Depending on her mood Madi will either freak or play with you. I am sure this pattern will continue for a few more years :-) Your vocabulary is also growing. Although no words have officially formed you talk and talk all of the time. You will sit in your crib when you wake and just have a little discussion with the butterflies on your mobile. Its like you are saying good morning and asking them how their night was. It is so sweet!
Speaking of Madison you find her so funny. Whenever she plays with you, talks to you, or is being silly you crack up laughing. It is the funniest thing. You don't laugh at Dad or I like you laugh at your sis. Sisterly bond I guess :-)
You are still my little cuddle bug. You would much rather be held than not and if your not being held you demand to be close to all of the action. We have introduced you to the bouncer-like-thing and the walker with no wheels. You love both of the these because you can sit there and play and your not lying down. Plus they make all sorts of fun noises that you find fascinating. Speaking of sitting you have started to hold yourself up (while sitting) and can play for a few moments before flopping over. If we place the Boppy around you can sit and play for a while.
Your smile is possibly the sweetest smile ever, and you love to flash it :-) You will coo and chat reeling whoever you are talking to in and then flash your smile and there is no turning back. They are hooked and in love.
You have started to grow a tab bit of hair. The little fuz that has showed up is dark, straight and looks to be chalked full of cowlicks. I am sorry to say that it looks like you may have inherited your moms hair.
You are our little string bean, social butterfly that is always on the move and who has captured all of our hearts. We love you Kenni-bear!!!
Mama and Dada
