Emily Ann- 4 months

Emily Ann, you are the best. I could not ask for a better daughter and I am loving every minute of watching you learn and grow. You are absolutely precious and your Daddy and I adore you.
We love you baby girl.

Firsts: Trip to the beach, trip to the Grand, first time in the swimming pool, Christmas, visit to Daddy's work, New Year's Eve and New Years

Milestones: Holding yourself up in your Exer-Saucer, talking loudly on a regular basis

Measurements: 14 lbs. 2 oz (60th percentile), 25 inches long (90th percentile), size 2 diapers, 3-6 month clothes

Like Mommy: Big blue eyes

Like Daddy: Sometimes gets fussy when shopping....tee hee.

Food: You are eating about 6.5 oz. every 4 hours. You got the go-ahead to start on baby food at your 4 month appt!

Sleep:  Most of the time, you are sleeping about 12 hours at night. You usually take a nap in the morning somewhere around the house and a nap in the afternoon in your crib. You also snooze in your pumpkin seat/ in the car when we go out during the day. 

Challenges: At the beginning of the month, you fought with your bottle every time we fed you. This made feeding a verrrrrrry long process. We moved your feeding schedule from every 3 hours to every 4 hours and changed your bottles from Medela to Dr. Brown. This has made the feeding situation much much better.

Our Days: You wake up at 8:00 each morning and have breakfast. After you eat, you usually play in the Exer-Saucer or on Mommy's bed as she gets ready for the day. If we have plans for the day, we usually plan for about 10:00. This gives us time to go out before your next feeding. You eat again at 12:00 then we play from the end of that feeding until 2:00 when I lay you down for a nap in your crib. You sleep from 2:00-4:00 (unswaddled). At 4:00 you eat again, then spend some time with Daddy. You sit in your Bumbo as Mommy and Daddy eat dinner, then we play a little more before bedtime. You take a bath every other evening right before your 8:00 meal. We feed you at 8:00 and you go to bed at 8:30 (swaddled). 

Favorite Moments
Mommy's Favorite: Hearing you talk and giggle.
Daddy's Favorite: Seeing you smile when you wake up in the morning.
