4 months

Thursday, October 18, 2012


{Age}
Four months.
{Diaper size}
2
{Stats}
25 inches long, 16.5lbs, 77% height & 94% weight
{Sleeping}
Is now sleeping 8 hour time spans, meaning momma gets a to have a cold one in the evening again...BOOM. Still nursing to sleep, but if she stirs awake I can usually go in & turn her white noise giraffe & waterfall lights back on & she soothes herself back to sleep.
{Feeding}
Still exclusively breast feeding, between our own discussions & with the pediatrician we have decided that we won't start solids until 6 months, when I will be making my own organic baby food, you can read about it here.

{Favorite words/sounds}
Still cooing away, almost belly laughing, not putting syllables together yet.
{Favorite toy}
Giraffe lovey
{Loves}
To be held in the sitting up position. Holding blankets & pulling them towards her mouth, her little pink giraffe lovey blanket is her favorite.   

{Not so much}
Still hating car rides, what an odd child, most kids find it very soothing, this is where the Grumpus Rainey nickname comes from.

{Nicknames}
Kirby Sue it is, Sue is in absolutely zero part of her name, but we started calling her that & it seriously STUCK.
{Signature moves}
If someone holds her in the cradle position, she is going after their boobies ASAP (not a huge snuggler unless sleeping or nursing). She has started doing this thing where she deliberately looks away from us when we are trying to catch her attention no matter which way we turn her. I asked our pedi about it, because I am crazy & I thought it could possibly be a vision issue since she only does it when we hold her up close, but when we lay her down she looks right at us. Our pediatrician laughed (watching Kirby do it to her & said it was definitely a phase).
{Milestones}
Has finally got her fingers figured out & loves them. Seems like a belly laugh will be coming soon, however for now it is a sucking in hiccup noise when she gets really excited about something. Starting to grab at toys that hang from the activity gym. Loves blowing bubbles/raspberries. Sitting up well in her bumbo.
{Adventures}
Kirby had her shots this month, she really doesn't cry too much just a little fussy & then she's over it. After learning our lesson the first time (woke up from a nap with a fever & screaming, scared the shit out of me), we now be sure to complete a good 2 rounds of Tylenol, so her fever doesn't spike & make her miserable. Got her first case of pink eye this month right before my mom's wedding, but she did great with the eye drops & it cleared right up. We tried a bottle of breast milk for the first time this month, pretty positive we waited too long...she had no idea what the hell it was or what to do with it. We were all surprised including the pediatrician since she isn't around kids & doesn't go to any type of daycare. My mom got married this month & we all stayed in cabins for the weekend, it was a lot of fun to show her off to all of my family.

Made out first pair of baby legs...obsessed. I'll be sure & post a tutorial when I get a chance. 

Rooted for Texas & Kirby won all of the money in football squares, like a boss.


Went on her first car date with her boyfriend Caden.

Had her first marg with her Granny.


Tasted a breast milk popsicle & man did she love it! (just froze breast milk in ice treys & stuck it in one of those mesh teethers). 


We both discovered our love of the jumparoo, I love dragging it into the bedroom while I get ready, it's a real time saver.

& we finished our evenings off kicking back with a couple of books.
