Mollie, 4 months

Mollie Lynn you are FOUR months old!

What have you been up to these days?
You weigh 13 pounds 8 ounces (50th percentile)
 You are 25 3/4 inches (75th percentile)
Your head is 16.5 inches (76th percentile)
You are my long and lean princess!
You are still bald with only a little peach almost always have a headband on!
 You still wear size 2 diapers. You wear 3-6 month clothes, and 6 month tops and jumpers.
You nurse every 3-4 hours during the day. You take 3, sometimes 4 naps during the day, and always take a long 3 hour nap in the afternoon. I am so thankful that both you and your brother are good sleepers, and take your afternoon nap at the same time. I try my best to be productive during that time!
You sleep at night from 9:00-6:30 or 7:00.We have been able to move your bedtime earlier and earlier each week. You still sleep swaddled. As soon as we bundle you for bed and give you your binkie, your eyes get so heavy and tired. You still sleep with your eyes partly open...
You went on your first trip on an airplane. We had such a wonderful vacation to Colorado to meet your Uncle Adam and Aunt Willow for the first time. You were an absolute dream baby on the airplane, sleeping almost the entire ride. Thankfully, Grammy, Grandpa and Bami were on the airplane to take care of you, so that we can tackle your busy big brother!
You have most certainly found your voice this month. You love to squeal, yell and make lots of noise! You are still very ticklish, and are always giving us the best belly laughs! You love for people to talk to you, and are quite the little ham.

You are drooling and blowing bubbles all the time. I think you are teething.
You are such a smiley baby. Sometimes your smiles are so big that it doesn't even look like you are smiling, but rather opening up your mouth like you are trying to eat us! Your whole face lights up when you smile.
You rolled over from your back to your stomach. You have only done it a couple of times, but no more leaving you on the couch alone! When you are on the ground, you will curl your legs up and roll back and forth from side to side.
You LOVE to play on your activity mat! You kick your legs and grab at the toys, bringing them to your mouth. You are moving your hands so purposefully. I'm amazed at how much you move and turn just by kicking your legs. You are a strong little girl!
You sat in the Bumbo for the first time! After about 10 minutes, your head got too heavy and you were done! You still like to bounce in your jumperoo.
You do not like to get into your car seat. You cry almost the minute we start to buckle you up. You usually calm down fairly quickly, but sometimes you put up quite a stink while riding the car.
You love your binkie, especially when you are tired or fussy. Matthew likes to take your binkie from you, and then will try to stuff it in your face give it back to you when you cry.
Matthew loves to give you hugs and kisses, and is always saying "hi" to his sissy!

You love to play with your sweet friend Autumn.
You got 2 shots at your four month doctors appointment. You cried when you got the shots, but calmed down really quickly. Later that evening, you were very fussy and irritable. Your legs were hurting from your shots, and you also had a 101.7 fever! Poor little girl. You ended up having a very rough nights sleep, and spent the night downstairs on the couch with Mommy. Your fever finally broke in the morning and our sweet, happy girl was back!
Your umbilical hernia resolved, and is now completely gone!
You love to take baths, especially with your big brother! You are starting to kick and splash when you are in the tub.
Matthew loves to play peek-a-boo with you.
We had so many adventures and trips to the park this summer. You are the easiest baby to take places, and love to go for walks in your stroller.
Mollie Lynn, what a joy you are to our family!
