Bella's 4 Months

Darling Bella,

You are 4 months old! Wow how time flies when you are having the time of your life raising the most precious daughter! You are such a great baby!

At your 4 month appointment Dr. M said that you were PERFECT..which we already knew.

-15 lbs (75th percentile)
-24 1/2 inches long (60th percentile)

You got 3 more shots plus an oral vaccine. Needless to say you did not like the shots. But honestly by the time we checked out and were in the car, you were just fine and back to "talking" to me again. But you crashed shortly after that :)

You wear size 2 diapers.
You wear 3-6 months clothes and some 6-12 months clothes.
You can roll from front to back and back to front now.
You sleep on your belly.
You sleep all night without wanting a bottle. However, you do lose your paci at night (usually 2-3 times) and I have to come give it back to you. Also, at "nap" time during the day you LOVE to fight your sleep.
You are eating some "solids". Here are what you have tried and the verdict on each:
-Peas....Spit them back in my face (that was nice)
-Sweet potatoes...didn't like them the first time but the second time you started liking them.
-Bananas...your FAVORITE
-Rice cereal...you like it mixed with a fruit or veggie but dont really care for it by itself.

Those are the only food you have tried so far. Except for the occasional dip into whatever mommy and daddy are eating. Papaw Dennis (my daddy) let you eat some cinnamon roll icing off his finger and needless to say you loved that too :) ha!

You eat 8 ounce bottles now about 5 times a day.

You just had your first Thanksgiving! Everyone loved holding and passing you around. You were the center of attention for most people there.

Bella, you are looking so much like me, your mommy, these days.

As I type, I am watching you play with your toys at 6 in the morning on a Sunday. You like to wake mommy up early...I think you think it is funny. ha! You are also battling a cold right now..as is the rest of our house. NO FUN!

You are so much fun and so full of energy. I love being your mommy and could not ask for a better daughter! You are definitely starting to show signs of being a daddy's girl though...and that is ok as long as you give your momma some lovins too! :)

We love Isabella Grace! We can't wait to see the little girl you become!

Love, Mommy and Daddy
