Jeanette - 4 months old

Jeanette was four months old on Friday the 23rd but I didn't get a chance to post!  Be ready for some adorable photos and videos this month! 

Height: 26 inches

Weight: 13lbs even according to our baby scale.  Your next pediatrician appointment is on the 29th.

Clothes: You are still wearing 0-3 month and 3 month clothes.  I bought you some shorts that are 0-3 month and they are all too big!  You don't have much of a waist or a behind, just like your father!

Big girl!

Sleep:  You have still been sleeping great throughout the night.  You go to bed between 10 and 10:30pm and wake up sometime between 5:30 and 7am.  I think you've been waking up earlier because it's betting light out earlier.  The black out blinds in your room block out most of the light, but the sun still seems to wake you up.

Feedings: You eat 5 ounces every 3-4 hours.  Sometimes at night you don't finish your entire bottle.  You also tried rice cereal for the first time at the end of the month and you are still trying to figure out how to eat it.  I try it with you about once a day so hopefully you will get the hang of it soon!    

Best Moment(s):   You rolled over for the first time on May 10th and it was so awesome!  You are also getting really good at belly laughs and love to giggle when you are getting your diaper changed.  You find the strangest things funny, like when mommy counts the buttons on your pajama's or when I say your name or momma, it must be pretty hilarious! 

Worst Moment(s):  There were a few nights were you woke up around 2 or 3am crying and it was hard to get you back to sleep.  One night, I had to give you a bottle to get you back to bed which is so rare for you.

Development:  You are great at grasping objects from the toys that hang on your play mat to your rattles and small stuffed animals.  You are quite expressive and love to smile and coo, but when you are upset you can make a really good pout face and puff out your bottom lip.  I know it seems impossible, but you look cute even when you are crabby.  You can roll from your back to your stomach AND your stomach to your back!  It was so cute to see you do both of these things for the first time because even you were shocked! Below are a few videos, one of Jeanette rolling over and the other of her playing with her favorite rattle.   

Jeanette Loves:  Exploring your hands and feet, laying on your play mat, reading books with grandma and mommy, listening to music, patty cake (it always makes you laugh), being snuggled in the evening, rolling, watching the cat and dog (the way you look at them cracks me up, you get these big eyes and I wonder what on earth you are thinking when you see them), trying to rip out mommy's hair or earrings and taking cat naps. 

Jeanette Dislikes:  There really isn't much you don't like at the moment.  Now that you don't hate tummy time, my life is much easier. 

Anything else?:  It seems like you have changed more this month than the others.  It's so neat watching you learn new things like rolling over and playing with your toys.  You really know who Mommy and Daddy are now and love to get our attention when we leave the room.  You are one of the most pleasant babies I've ever been around, you hardly ever cry unless it's close to a feeding and you are so sweet.

She's been learning to make the raspberry noises!

So far this is my all time favorite photo!
I have no words!

Awww! She is so adorable and sweet! I love these updates! It's fun to follow along and think "yep, Tate does that" or "not yet but soon!"
