Four Months

Eliza is 4 months old today and this is what she is up to:
  • Her upper body is continuing to get stronger. She is much more capable of sitting in her exersaucer now and enjoys it for about 20-30 minutes at a time.
  • She has a favorite toy, a lion like toy she can grab and chew on although there is something about it that may hurt her sometimes and I can't figure out what it is. She will be playing happily with it then out of now where start crying.
  • She is grabbing and holding on to rattles and small toys now. Everything is starting to go in her mouth so I have to stay on top of the boys not to give her toys unless I am right there with her.
  • She is rolling over from belly back but hasn't gotten back to belly yet. It is still pretty early for that.
  • She loves her mommy and daddy and gets so excited to see us when we have been away from her.
  • The happiest times of her day are first thing in the morning when I go get her and peak over the side of her crib and when I am getting ready to nurse her. She lets out a squeal and starts to punch and kick in excitement.
  • She is eating about 2 ounces of cereal most nights for dinner. She usually likes it but if she is too tired when I try it she puts up a fuss and refuses.
  • She is wearing 3-6 months clothes and some 6-9 months although 6-9 is a little big.
  • She went through a spell for a couple of weeks where I really thought she was going to be a thumb sucker, but that seems to have passed. We continue to try pacifiers with her some. She thinks they are funny and will suck a few times then spit them out and smile.
  • She is starting to belly laugh. I was dressing her the other day and was trying to button a button close to her collar bone and she got really tickled and started laughing.
  • She is such a blessing to us and as hard as it is to go back to diapers and sleep deprivation, Chris and I are convinced she is perfect and completes our family.
