Vera is 4 months Old....

Monday, January 16, 2012





Seriously where does the time go?  I must say 4 months in pregnancy does not go this fast....Our little lady is really growing up fast and we are just trying to soak up every moment and every milestone of our sweet pea.  She is definitely finding her personality.  She is still learning how to sleep through the night and sometimes she likes to hang out with mommy every hour of the night (note daddy tries but she does NOT want him)...She love her big brother, being held, talked to and cuddled but her head is very sturdy and she is always looking around to see what is going on.  She prefers to sit in her bumbo on the table during dinner so she can be part of the discussion.  Here's what she is up to this month....


  • She now giggles at others (especially her big brother)
  • She likes to stand tall on her legs (she will stay bone straight so you can't bend her when she wants to stand and she is strong)
  • Her neck is nice and strong and can hold it up and likes to sit in her bumbo now
  • She can roll over from her tummy to back but doesn't prefer to do it all the time (I guess than she wouldn't get the applause she now gets when she does it on occasion)
  • She can grasp at toys and put them in her mouth (she likes her activity mat for short stints)
  • She likes to look at "baby" in the mirror and will flirt and laugh at her!
  • She has had her 1st round of rice cereal and most of it comes flying back out
  • She has major blowout diapers almost daily - Solon now asks me to check her back anytime she "toots" and then proceeds to gag if he sees poop - needless to say oxiclean and I are good friends!
  • She switched pacis to an avent paci and she keeps it in much better
  • She likes her polka-dot blanket and holds on to it and has it by her cheek to sleep
  • She loves to kick her legs in the bathtub and kick the rubber ducky
  • She dislikes being in her carseat too long
  • When she is hungry, she is HUNGRY
  • When she is tired, she is FUSSY :)
  • She likes the swing and will take a nap in there
  • Working on sleeping successfully in the crib (don't want to jinx it but last night she went from 9:30-4:30 babbled and went back to sleep until 6:30 ate and went back to bed until 7:30....YAY)
  • She wears size 2 diapers
  • She fits into some 3-6 month clothes and a few 0-3 month outfits still fit, some 3-6 months are too big
  • She weigh 13 lbs 4 oz (39th percentile), 24.5 inches tall (57th percentile), and head circumference is 39th percentile
Overall, she is a happy, smiley baby and we are so blessed!  We love you Vera so much and so glad God bestowed us the blessing of raising you.  Happy 4 month birthday...this next month is going to be exciting with your first trip abroad :)!
