Big Girls

Our little pumpkin...

is 4 months old!

At her four month doctors appointment, Leah's stats were:

Height: 23 3/4..... 30th percentile
Weight: 13 lbs 7 oz.....50th percentile
Head Circ: 17 in.... 95th percentile

We are getting into such a fun age! At 4 months, Leah:

Loves to sit and stand, although she can still do neither unsupported

Enjoys playing in her jumpy swing (supervised, of course... she's still pretty little)

Her favorite song is the alphabet song. She always smiles when I sing and sign

Thinks it's hillarious when I'm putting clothes on or taking them off and I tell her, "You better give Momma those arms!" She giggles every time!

Gives her funny, gummy smile when I drum roll on her belly

Her nicknames include: Little Pumpkin, Monkey, Lee-lee, Lee-lee Belle, Cutes, Baby girl, and Lovie

Still sleeps about 5 hours in her crib, and the last 5 in Mommy and Daddy's room

Loves her pink bear

Is without doubt a paci girl. She loves anything she can suck on... her hands, my shirt, the toys on her playmat... whatever.

The two adjectives I hear used most often when people first meet her: Alert and strong. She is definitely both!

As of last weekend, she has again gone back to being Mommy's content baby. Because of this:
Has never tried anything but breastmilk (and a tiny slurp off of a piece of watermelon, which she didn't much care for)

Will listen to me or Daddy read almost endlessly - or until she falls asleep.

Is adored by her mommy and daddy! We couldn't be more proud of and delighted by you, sweet baby!

  1. She is so stinkin' CUTE! She is tiny like my C was- love it! I would love to get together before the summer ends- maybe go for a walk or something.
