|Four months old!|
Felicity turned four months old yesterday! Our little bouncy flouncy is a newborn no more. She is smiley, loves kisses and she is full of life! She's started laughing and has discovered her voice... Volume: maximum. She likes to roll over both ways, she is a pro at tummy time and she'll bounce off on your legs till your arms want to fall off. She's discovered her hands, and she can grab toys, smack things, grasp at whatever is in front of her... or hold her fingers demurely.
Height: 25 1/4" (83rd percentile) weight: 13.7(33rd percentile) head circumference 41.6 cm (79th percentile). She wears 6 month old clothes and size 2 diapers. Let me tell you, girl clothes have a lot more pieces than a boy wardrobe! But it's fun. She actually likes changing clothes or getting headbands and hats put on her head. I think she likes the sensation of a cloth around her head. It makes her smile. :-)
Felicity wakes up around 7:30 am, and naps about 3 times a day, anywhere from 30 min to 3 hours at a time. Usually it's two short naps and a long one. She goes to sleep by 9 pm, but she's started getting tired sooner so that could creep up. She will usually get up at least once a night to nurse, and up to waking every two hours all night. It's a toss up. Now that she can roll over super well, she's started sleeping on her tummy, and that has vastly improved the going to sleep routine. The first time she slept on her tummy, she slept from bedtime till morning, but that hasn't happened again.
Still exclusively breastfed, still won't take a bottle. We've tried a myriad of kinds of bottles and nipples and straw cups and open cups. She'll drink enough to be pacified if I'm gone for a couple of hours but not a substantial amount. I feel like if we can get through to 6 months and start using an open cup/feeding solids, it won't be as big of a deal.
Felicity's favorite toys right now are her fox and elephant and bee - all from my Aunt Tish actually! She loves Sophie the Giraffe, and is getting better at sucking on the wubbanub paci. She loves LOVES reading. It's so funny how attentive she is. She tries to turn the pages and leans in really far. We mostly read books with Wilder, so anything from Who's in the Forest? to Just Me and My Dad to We Have A Baby are all ones she loves. It's neat to see her look over the pages.
Last week she started blowing raspberries, and this week she's started laughing at Wilder when he runs around. She thinks he's so funny.
Here are some photos from yesterday. Wilder has started playing more with her and you can tell she thinks he's just the greatest!
