4 Months

Rose turned 4 months old yesterday! It has been an amazing 4 months. Rose is still a little angel baby and we are enjoying every second of life with her.

Here are her four month stats:
15 lb, 13 oz (90th percentile)
26.5 inches (97th percentile
40.5 cm head circumference (didn't get the percentile)

Rose had her first shot today...she got the combo DTaP, Polio, and HIB and did great! I asked if I could nurse while she got the shot and the nurse said of course. So, Rose started nursing and a few seconds later the nurse gave the shot. Rose's eyes got really big when the needle went in , made a little whimper and kept on nursing!! I was so relieved that she didn't cry!!! I was waaay more afraid of the shot than she was. Thank goodness. We are going to go back in a month to get the Pc shot and then get 1 shot/month until she is caught up at 9 months.

She has been sleeping ever since we got home...a record nap at our house! I keep checking and taking her temp, and so far everything looks OK. Here are some things Rose is doing at 4 months (mostly for my personal record but you might find it interesting too!)
-Wearing mostly 3 month clothing but starting to wear size 6 month
-Beginning to wear size 3 diapers
-Grabbing everything within her reach
-Noticing our dog, Lucy
-Smiling at everything
-"Talking" up a storm... We joke that she sounds like a little Taradaktyl...whatever they sound like!
-Loving her mobile, silver rattle, babydoll, TV
-Being swaddled at night
-Sleeping from about 10 hours at night (usually 10PM-8AM)
-Taking 4-5 short naps (15-30 minutes each)
-Sleeping in her carrier (she gets the best naps when we are running errands)
-Kicking her legs when she gets excited (especially in the bathtub!)

Happy 4 month birthday, Rosebud!!! We love you more than you will ever know.
