4-month check up: 13lb 1.5oz (25th percentile), 1’ 11.5” tall (12th percentile), 15.85” head (38th percentile). Perfectly healthy and developmentally on track!
Already rolling over consistently. She did it a few times, inconsistently, right at 3-months old. But now it’s intentional and a form of locomotion for sure.
She sits up in her high chair and pretty strongly when we set her on the floor or in our lap.
Does very well with tummy time. Only fusses sometimes.
Still sleeping in her cradle, in our room, at night. Right at 4-months she had one good week sleeping through the night, then a few rough nights (getting up once to eat), and then another solid week of making it through. We think we’re in the home stretch!
She also sleeps in her bouncy chair, swing, our arms, the Baby Bjorn, the car seat. Just about anywhere.
She hangs out in her crib and will nap in there with no problem.
She’s eating 5-6 times a day. Right at 4-months we started gently moving her toward a schedule to make all our lives a little smoother. So far, so good.
She can hold her own bottle reasonably well! She definitely wants to - sometimes depends on how heavy it is. Usually 7oz.
She’s quite the trooper and goes along with us on all adventures with her brother. She’s almost always happy and willing to go with the flow. It probably helps that she adores her brother!
Her onesie in these photos is how we told Gabriel he was having a sister. He opened the box to discover Wonder Woman (instead of Superman). Wonderful she indeed is!
The adventures continue! This girl is such a trooper being dragged on summer adventures with her brother. Plus, she attended her first conference as mama’s co-presenter. :-)
Just after her 4-month-bday we moved her to her crib and she’s sleeping soundly through the night.
Our gentle push toward a schedule has been successful and she’s eating consistently 5 times a day. She’s napping between each feeding and at least two of those naps are typically 1.5hours or more.
Rolling has ramped up! She’s definitely using it to get around. And since she’s still spitting up constantly, she typically leaves a trail of spit up in her wake.
She’s pulling her feet up to her face and thoroughly enjoying her toes. She’s also started pulling off her socks just like her brother did.
She loves toys that hang down for her to grab. Crinkle, jingle, all noises & textures are fun.
Rebecca continues to be an awesome little booger.
15lb, 12oz (38th percentile), 2’ 1” (11th percentile), 16.54” head circumference (37th percentile). Super strong, healthy little lady!
Rolling ALL over the place. Definitely a solid mode of locomotion for her. We love how she’ll roll to her stomach to pivot 90 degrees, then roll front-back again to actually cover distance in the direction she wants to go.
She can’t pull herself up to sitting yet, but when we sit her somewhere she will sit up for 30+ minutes if she’s having fun.
Taking after her brother with a love of “Hoppy.” She loves bouncing all over and having new toys to suck on. And it’s just in time since we’ve had to retire the bouncy chair due to her attempts to escape it.
Dare we say it… we think the spit up is calming down! *Fingers crossed.* She definitely still gets us from time to time, but we don’t have to clean off Hoppy that often, there’s rarely a trail of spit up following her around the living room, and there have been multiple days we’ve gone through the whole day with the same burp cloth. It seems too good to be true.
Started solid foods a few days after turning 6 months with baby cereal. Some funny faces, but also swallowing so - success!
She eats 5 times a day and naps 3-4 times. She makes it 4+ hours between meals and one or two of those naps will be 1-2 hours long. Yay! She’s still sleeping consistently through the night (roughly 10:15pm-6am).
She loves her taggy-elephant blanket that daddy bought her this past month. He knew she needed more satin tags to chew on and he was right! She’s also still a pro with the paci. She takes it out, chews on it sideways, plays with it, and puts it back in.
In the past month she’s started hanging out with our nanny, Jaylin, 3 days a week. Rebecca lights up when Jaylin arrives and seems to love the time she spends with her.
She still loves watching the animals and reaching for their fur anytime it’s close (and the 85lb dog is still scared of the baby…). And her big brother ALWAYS gets a smile. She loves him to bits.
