4 Months Old

My little girl is 4 months old. Well, yesterday she was 4 months old, but I had company so I was unable to blog. I can't believe how drastically my life has changed in 4 months. I remember when my Saturdays would end at 5am, not start at 5am!


We tried her on rice cereal yesterday for the first time and she wailed, like screamed her head off. So we're going to try again in a few days and see how it goes.

Andy had to take her to the doctor yesterday because she was crying all day and, while we figured it was teething, we just wanted to make sure it wasn't an ear infection or something else. Doc said she looks healthy and he told us what to do to help with the teething (tylenol, teething tablets, baby orajel, cold things to chew on). So hopefully things will get better in that respect soon. She weighs a whopping 17lbs! Chunka!

Here's her 4 month pic


And one of her in her superfly new raincoat, I like it because she's giving the side eye.


On another note, this is my 100th post! Holla! I was reflecting back on my blog and the whole pregnancy part was really puppies and rainbows. So not my style. I think I was feeling like I had to love being pregnant because it was inappropriate not to love being pregnant, but in all honesty I never really loved it. Sure there were parts of it I liked but on the whole it was really just a means to an end.

Happy 4 months, Isabella!! And wow, 17 pounds!! That is great! I just weighed Kate last week and she was only 13 1/2 pounds...looks like she has some catching up to do!

Love your candor, love the raincouat, love the "side eye". Great post. And my kid never liked baby cereal. Eventually I took to making her yogurt smoothies with cereal stirred in because she was good with the sippie with the straw.

Awww. Happy 4 months! It goes so fast doesn't it? I love the rain coat it's adorable. You have so many exciting milestones coming up. Josiah didn't like cereal at first either, but did well with purees. Some babies just skip that cereal step so don't be afraid to follow your instincts.

She is just gorgeous!! Doesn't time just fly with children? One minute you're pregnant the next you're feeding solids! (and beyond!) x
