Aiden: Four Months

Friday, January 1, 2016

Little bug is four months! I really can't believe how fast time is flying by. I had to go to my doctor's office to pick something up - which is located at the hospital where she was born - and I may or may not have cried in the parking lot. So many memories!

Ok, updates from this month...
  • Honestly, she was sick for the most part this month! That dang Kawasaki Disease.
  • Because she was sick, she's regressed with her tummy time domination and hasn't tried to roll over at all. I'm not worried, because she literally did nothing for three weeks while she was sick, I'm sure it's going to take her some time to build back up. 
  • While at the doctor on Dec 14, the doctor found TWO TEETH starting to come through! She officially has her first teeth - the front bottom ones. She kept sticking her tongue out, and we thought it might be swollen... turns out she could probably just feel her little teethies! Kind of hilarious that she gets her first teeth at 3 months, and Jude still has none at 15 months.
  • Since getting back from the hospital, she's smiley and giggly as ever! Her smiles are huge, open-mouth smiles and I LOVE THEM.
  • She was pretty quiet the first couples days after we got back from the hospital, but she seems to have found her voice again and loves to chat.
  • She can sit up in her Bumbo seat. She gets this big ole smile and you can just tell she's so proud of herself.
  • She's figured out that both of her hands belong to her! She'll intertwine her fingers and it's pretty adorable. 
  • She's also discovered that she can use her hands to do things - like grab our faces (which melts my heart).
  • She loves to snuggle her lovey and stuffed animals. 
  • I accidentally "killed" Fred (her Wubbanub) while trying to sanitize him, but quickly ordered a new one. She wouldn't take a paci while she was sick, anyway - so that worked in our favor.
  • She loves her carseat, and is getting better about car rides. Having a noise machine back there is a real game changer.
  • She's in between sizes. Still fits in most 0-3 months, and starting to fit in 3-6 months.
  • She eats every 3-4 hours, but can sometimes goes longer.
  • We successfully moved her from our bed to her crib! Motherhood is a total mind game. I wanted to move her out of our bed because I knew she wasn't getting good sleep and I could tell she was ready. Of course, the first few nights I was near tears because I wanted her back in bed with us.
  • In the mornings, she'll make noises when she wakes up in her crib and I can hear Ruthie walk down the hallway and nudge open her door. It's adorable.

As of her four month checkup on January 7… 25" long (79%) and 12lbs 11.8 oz (21% - she actually lost weight from when she left the hospital, but they're not too concerned).

My heart increases in size daily. Every day I say I don't think it's possible for me to love her more, but then she wakes up the next morning and I do!
