Emmalyne: Month 4
|February 6, 2012||Posted by Madeline @ Food, Fitness, and Family under 4-6 Months, Baby, Month Updates|
My baby is 1/3 of a year … sniff. I say this every month but time is going by way too fast. I swear Emmie is changing daily! New to her updates? Catch up from the beginning:
How is Miss Emmie measuring up these days?
Weight: 14lbs 8oz (84th percentile)
Height: 25 1/4 in (98 percentile)
Clothes: 3-6 months or 6 months
Emmie truly a happy baby. She smiles all the time and is truly just content. Her personality is starting to show more and she is a firecracker! This month she has found her voice. She talks to her toys non-stop. She also has started playing this game where she will look at the person she wants and “whine” until they pic her up. She is very deliberate in her desires and it cracks Chris and I up!
We are still going strong! Emmie is eating every 3 hours during the day and once during the night. We got the go-ahead from our pediatrician today to start baby food if we want. I am going to wait until after my trip to Arizona to look into it more. I am interested in researching baby led weaning a bit more too.
She still loves bath time but now she has started splashing and playing with her toys. It is a more interactive experience by far! No matter how tired/cranky she is, bath time always makes her happy We love to read books up in her glider. Her favorite right now is “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom”. Emmie also is happy playing on her play mat by herself. Her favorite toy is a stuffed yellow dog that crinkles. She carries it everywhere!
Her biggest new discovery are her toes. She is constantly grabbing them and pulling them up to her face. Emmie gets so confused when she is in a sleep-and-play and she can’t find them. :)
Emmie has decided her bedtime is between 7-7:30. She will sleep solidly until 3-4AM. She has a quick snack and then goes back to sleep until 7:30-8. I find this FABULOUS because she went through a pretty nasty sleep regression at 3 1/2 months. She is still taking 3 naps a day … around 9AM, Noon, and 3PM. Sometimes she takes a short catnap around 5PM.
I STILL can’t believe this angel is mine. Every day is a new adventure. I love seeing her discover a little more of the world each day.
I love you baby girl. You are my sunshine.
