4 months

Paislee Marie, you are four months old today!

I can't believe how fast you are growing! You weigh 15 pounds, and you are 25 inches long. You are wearing size 2 diapers, and mostly 6 month clothes.

As you (and everyone else) may have noticed, there isn't much time to blog these days! You keep me busy busy! We are in the middle of moving from Alaska to Maine, and right now we are in North Carolina meeting and visiting family. I promise I'll blog more when you let me!

I am loving your little personality more and more everyday! You are such a happy little girl! As long as everything is going exactly how you want it to go ;0). You are starting to laugh and squeal a lot, it is so stinkin' cute! I think you were getting tired of seeing just me and daddy everyday. You seem to be learning much faster now that you meet someone new almost everyday.

You are now eating a few solids almost everyday. We started you at the beginning of the month on a little bit of cereal mixed with milk every few days because you started acting super hungry...I think it was a growth spurt because now you seem perfectly satisfied with just milk. We are still giving you cereal every night before bathtime, just to get you used to solids, and we even started mixing bananas in. You have also tried sweet potatoes and carrots. You don't seem to be interested though, mommy is still your best bud for now :0) Don't worry, I'm gonna take advantage for as long as I can! Speaking of, you still won't take a bottle! I don't think it's because you don't know how, I think it's because you don't want to! You are a stubborn little turd! We are now starting to work with you and a sippy cup, maybe you will take that instead? We are hoping you give in soon, we would like to take an overnight trip for our anniversary in a few weeks....please?? You have recently started taking a pacifier so we are hoping that will lead to a bottle soon!

You are getting better at not being held 24/7. You play on your little play mat, in your exersaucer, and most recently in your new jumperoo (you love it!). You love laying on your back and holding your feet! I've even caught you sucking your toes a few times, ha! I love watching you hold your feet, it's too cute!
You are also sitting very well, with a little help, and standing with help too! Over the last few days you have even been reaching for cups and opening your mouth to drink from them.

Today we went to the pool for the first time and you loved it! Looks like we have a little water baby on our hands!

Your sleeping habits are getting pretty regular now. You are asleep every night usually by 9, and you are only waking up once between then and 7am when you wake up :0) You take two naps a day, in the morning and afternoon, usually 2-3 hours each. You are finally letting us put you down to sleep, so now it's time to work on getting you in the crib!

You are growing so fast, I can't believe it. I'm so thankful your daddy works hard so I can stay home with you and not miss anything. We love you so much, more and more everyday, and can't wait to see all of the new things you learn over the next month!
