So I promised myself I would get Rose's 4 month update done before she turned 5 months old. . . which is in 5 days, oops. It's amazing how each day passes so darn quick, but I'm loving each and every one of them!
This little munchkin turned 4 months old on December 18th, but due to the holidays we weren't able to get in for her 4 month check up until December 30th, so we had to wait a bit for our stats. Our little girl clocked in at 14lb 12 oz and measured in at 25.5'', she seems so big to me now!
Rose is still a champion breast feeder, and completely anti bottle. At this point I've kinda given up hope that we are going to ever get her to take a bottle, but it's not really the end of the world. I love my one on one time I get to spend with her while she's feeding.
She's still been a great night sleeper. Though we traveled to my parents house for Thanksgiving, and that rocked her schedule for a few days. She's been getting up progressively earlier it feels like, between 6 - 7 am, but I still can't really complain about that. We've been calling her miss no naps, because this little girl will sleep during the day when she's moving around, or content in someones arms, and that's about it. Going for a drive or a walk in the stroller is a sure way to get her to nap, but sometimes it still takes quite a while to get her to drift off. Every time she appears drowsy, the minute she hits her cribs she is wide awake squirming and kicking and babbling away.
Month 4 brought Rose's first snowfall, her first Thanksgiving, and her first cookie day. So many firsts. She's also started giving her daddy a big smile when he gets home from work everyday. She has mastered rolling from her tummy to her back, it's almost impossible to log in some decent tummy time because she is always rolling over. But once she's on her back, it's like a turtle - she's happily content there, with no effort to turn back over. It seems like she's right at the brink of giving us a full belly laugh, we get this huge smile and short little squeal - but that is all we can seem to get out of her at this point.
She still remains the most calm, content little baby. She loves being around all the action and checking out everything going on around her. We feel so lucky to be parents to this sweet little girl, and it's so exciting to see her grow and change day by day.
