4 months

My sweet baby girl is 4 months old! I know I say it (and will probably continue to say it) every month but I can't believe how fast she is growing! It feels like just yesterday her daddy and I brought her home from the hospital. So much has changed since that first day home.

Sophia is so much more aware of the world these days!


What's that over there mom??!!



She is such a happy girl with a smile that just lights up the room!


Now that Sophia is awake more often we are able to do a lot more things! The weather has warmed up a lot over the last few weeks and we've been getting out and taking walks. This girl loves walks!! She especially likes when the breeze hits her face. She makes the sweetest smile. The other day we tried out the swings at the elementary school behind our house. They were so big for her but she loved it! We'll have to try and find some more Sophia sized swings.


There were many special events for Sophia this month: she was baptised, met her great grandma, met mommy's wonderful friend, Erin, went on a bird walk...


4 months has also brought on some sleep issues. Our awesome sleeper has had some "sleep regression." We're not sure if it is her age, mommy's return to work, a combination... but we are working on it!


At 4 months Sophia:


  • weighs 13lbs 9ozs-50% and is 23 3/4"-30%

  • wears a few size 0-3 month and some 3-6 month (she is in between because of the length)

  • Eats 5 times a day and 1 time at night (sometimes 2 if mommy was at work that day--we like to hold out for the good stuff)

  • Takes 4 naps a day with bedtime at 7pm and wake up at 7am

  • is not happy taking a bottle but we are working on it!

  • smiles a lot!

  • laughs, shrieks and babbles

  • lakes to taste test everything :) if it is near her mouth it will be sucked on

  • loves to suck and chew on her fingers

  • has found her thumb

  • has rolled over from front to back but doesn't do it on a regular basis yet

  • is starting to discover the toys on her jumperoo

  • loves to stand, with someone holding her of course :)
