Anna – 4 months old

20 Mar

Time seems to be escaping me and I truly can’t believe my baby girl is 4 months old!

Anna is the best baby, really she is.  She rarely cries, sleeps like a champ and pretty much smiles the rest of the day.  I always tell Henry that it’s a good thing she’s our third, because if she came first and then her brothers came after, I most likely would have thought something was wrong with the boys (with the catnaps, fussiness, etc)!

We had her 4 month appointment on Monday and she’s a growing girl:

Weight: 12 lbs 6 oz

Height: 25 2/3 inches long

Both of these approximately in the 50th percentile

Milestones:

She isn’t rolling over yet (different from boys which was around 13 weeks), she will roll onto her side but then just gets caught in the action of her surroundings…but boy does this little girl want to sit up.  If you lay her at any type of incline, she just lifts her head and back up.  Also, she’s a talker – it’s so funny how into the conversation she gets with her facial expressions.

She’s nursing every 3-4 hours during the day and then gets her last feeding at 9 pm and wakes up around 6 am for a feeding then up for the day around 8 am.

Unlike the boys where I was super strict about starting a routine with them at 8 weeks, I don’t really have a ‘real’ routine for her yet – during the day that is.  Also she should be going to bed earlier, but it’s been busy around here and she seems happy so I’m just going with it until we move next month into a new apartment and get settled. (P.s. our new nanny is amazing – another post for that!)

And of course, so photos of the little lady:
