Claire - Four Months

Baby girl is four months old and changing right before our very eyes.

Four month stats:
11 pounds 6 ounces (10%)
24 inches (50%) 

Here is what I want to remember from your fourth month:
  • Mommy went back to work.  You spend three days a week with aunt Marcy and Gavin, one day with Grandma Wilmes and the puppies and one day with our neighbor Jennifer and the girls.
  • Cousin Gavin is still afraid of you.  Everytime you make a noise, he gets frightened.  You make him cry a lot.
  • Even though you dropped to the 10th percentile for weight, you are quite the little piglet.  You are still eating every 3 hours or sooner.  And you eat FAST!  You are a pretty good burper.
  • You are also a pretty good tooter.  And your toots are starting to get stinky! 
  • You started rolling from your back to your belly!  You finally figured out the trick to keep your arm own.  However, your arm usually gets trapped underneath you when you roll over and then you get frustrated because you can't free it.  Mom or dad always comes to the rescue.
  • You are still such a good sleeper.  We have been so fortunate at night.  Thank you baby girl!
  • You liked watching Cardinals baseball with your dad.  During one intense playoff game, your dad jumped up and yelled at the TV and it scared you big time!  You started bawling and your dad felt so bad.  He just gets really emotional during game time.
  • You are starting to grab at your toys now.  You can catch Pete the Parrot and Magnus the Monkey. 
  • You still practice your cheerleader moves at all times (as evidenced in the blurry hand picture above).  You are always on the move swinging your arms and kicking your feet.  No wonder you aren't putting on the weight - you don't ever sit still!
  • You love music and we sing songs about EVERYTHING - taking a bath, changing your diaper, getting dressed.  Whenever mom or dad starts singing you usually stop fussing and just listen. 
  • You are such a squealer.  You squeal when you are happy and when you want our attention.  You are also turning into a big talker.  One weekend we went out to Grandma's and you talked in the back seat the whole ride there.  Dad said you just like to listen to the sound of your own voice.
  • You are DROOLY girl!  Your hands are always in your mouth now and the drool is everflowing.  I feel so bad because your little hands get so cold because they are always wet but I can't keep those little fingers out of your mouth. 
  • You still like your pacifier when you are tired.  It is a must for naps and bedtime.
  • You really like your big girl jumparoo.  It has lights.  And music!  And you can bounce!  So much excitement for such a little girl.  We have to put a shoe box underneath of it so your feet can reach something to push off of.
  • When given the choice, you always look at daddy.  Mommy can be holding you and cooing at you but the minute daddy walks in the room, he has your undivided attention.  It is so great that you are just enamored with your daddy but sometimes it hurts mommy's feelings when you won't give her your attention. 
  • We removed the foam insert in your bathtub.  Now you can sit down in the water more and splash, splash, splash!  You really love bathtime.
  • I had to pack up some of your 0-3 months clothes because you are such a tall girl.  Still a skinny mini but too long for some sleepers.
