I missed posting last month, so I thought I would combine the past two months…although there’s been so much change and growth, I don’t know if I can cover it all!!
 
This month she learned to:
Squeal and squeak
Happily take a bottle! Praise the Lord!!
Spit and blow bubbles (very lady-like!)
Put her hands together
Suck on 1-2 fingers vs. her whole hand…not my favorite thing for her to know how to do!
Have a “conversation”
Talk with her mouth closed
Sing a little
Laugh – more of a chuckle and she’s pretty reserved with it now!
Reach for toys
Grab anything and everything in front of her
Become a pro at holding toys
Move toys from one hand to the other
Roll to her side
Roll from tummy to back – she’s done this maybe 5-6 times
Hold her head up strong – full head control
Push up with straight arms when laying on her tummy
She’s trying to sit up
Sleep in her own bed at night (previously sleeping in a cradle in our room)
Reach for her feet and successfully grab them
Move a little while laying on her back by pushing with her feet – she so wants to be mobile!!
 
 
Her favorite things this month:
Eating
Bath time
Massage/Lotion
Talking and being talked to
Her Wubanub pacifier (it’s the only one she’ll take)
Reading – loves books!
Watching the fan
Singing songs with mommy
Facetime with Grandparents and Great-Grandparents
Kicking
Watching Noah show off
Being naked – she does a little dance! 🙂
Sucking on her fingers/hands
Putting anything and everything in her mouth
Mommy & Daddy
Talking
Her Hands
Her Feet
Sophie giraffe
Playing with plates, bowls, etc. while we eat
Blowing bubbles
Spitting
Talking
Standing up
Her silly big brother
 
Things she hates this month:
Bottles not at the correct temperature
Dirty diapers
Her arms being swaddled (doesn’t mind legs though!)
Being hungry
Being left in a room by herself – she wants to be part of all the action!
Napping in her bed for more that 45 minutes or an hour
Being in her car seat when not in motion (either by carrying or the car moving)
Shots
Teething – although she’s been taking it pretty well!
 
Her sizes this month:
17 lbs. 14 oz., 29.5 in (at 4 month appointment)
One Size cloth diaper covers with “purple” prefolds, Size 3 disposables
6-9 month clothes
 
New places she has been this month:
I don’t even know where to start! Not that we go that many places…but everywhere we go is new for her! So..here are a few –
2nd Trip to OKC (Backdoor BBQ & Big Truck Tacos) – met her Uncle Coy for the 1st time!
Maxwell’s Pumpkin Farm for Noah’s Birthday
Pumpkin Patch
