Felicity Marian: 4 Months

Weight: We will get a weight on the 27th but I'm thinking Felicity might be close to or at 13 lbs!

Height: I'll have to update this after her appointment.

Medical Issues: I'm thinking she is having some reattachment of her tongue and lip ties because symptoms are coming back :(. Other than that, she is doing wonderfully.

Sleep: Felicity is a fantastic sleeper at night! She goes to sleep around 7:30 or 8, wakes up once for a bottle (and one night slept through!) and then is up for the morning around 7:30-8:30. She does wake around 6 and want to get in bed and nurse, but I don't mind it since it buys me quite a bit more sleep. Plus, I love the morning cuddles. She isn't such a great napper with some naps only 20-40 minutes, and some days without any naps over an hour. If we travel (which we've done twice this month) her naps are even worse. 

Clothes/Diaper Size: She's in size 2 of most brands of diapers! Her thighs are finally chunky enough for cloth!!!! She's in 3 month clothes and 3-6 month sleepers! She is growing soooo fast! I am pretty sure she'll be higher than the 5th percentile at her next appointment. 

Likes: Eating her hands, the 'johnny jumper', the leaf toy from her boppy mat and the 'loopy' infantino toy we got her for her play gym, holding burp cloths, "swimming", having people smile and talk to her

Dislikes: Anyone but mommy trying to put her to sleep, laying down for any reason besides sleep, being hot, more than 3 minutes of tummy time, getting sleepy when she's not at home

Nicknames: Stinkaminka (carried over from last month), Tinka (shortened version), Monkey, Monkey Bear

Milestones: It was a big month! She learned to blow raspberries and suck her thumb. She laughed for the first time and rolled from back to belly! Also, she had her first time at the beach and her first time out of state (visiting my parents) this month.

I don't want to forget this!: Since we were at the beach with family for a week, they got to witness some of her 'firsts' this month. It was so special to share that with them! I also loved Felicity's first time in the baby pool on our trip. She kicked and splashed... I had so much fun watching her explore the water! Felicity's first laugh was one of my favorite 'firsts'. It was for her daddy which I loved because it was so special and rewarding for him. She laughed a few times while he played with her and luckily my mom got it on video because she's only done it once since.

  1. Oh my goodness, she's so cute! :) And she is a great sleeper at night! Holy cow! I am super jealous- Caroline was just a terrible sleeper and did not sleep through the night until 13 months!!! She turns 15 months in just a few days!
