I cannot believe that Adelyn is 4 months old already. A lady in my ward brought her newborn to church last Sunday and he was soooo tiny! My baby still seems so small to me until I see another baby and realize just how much she has grown. We had her 4 month appointment today. She is now 12 lbs 12 oz (30%) and 24 1/2" (60%) tall! Dr. Bean says she is really social. She really likes to smile and stare at people. Adelyn is very curious and likes to explore things with her mouth especially. She tries sometimes to fit both her fists in there at once. And she never gives up either. One day I'm convinced she will succeed.
She likes to giggle and coo a lot. In fact, I think she just likes to listen to herself. In the mornings she wakes up and doesn't cry, but just kind of "yells" until I come and get her. She likes to be read to and sung to, but only 1-2 books or songs at a time. Otherwise her attention wanders. She is enjoying tummy time more and will roll over, usually to the right side. She rolled over to her left once, but I missed it! And she always looks surprised to have ended up on her back. She seems really close to rolling over from her back to her belly, she can get up on her side but just can't seem to get that extra push over yet.
Adelyn loves playing in her bouncy chair. She likes to really make it bounce and go crazy. She likes rattles, and looking at herself in the mirror. She has started to grab things in front of her and put them in her mouth (where else?)
She also recently learned how to blow raspberries and it is so funny to watch her try to coordinate her little tongue and blowing out at the same time.
She has been sleeping through the night since she was about 4 weeks old, but is not very cooperative at taking naps. Ady is more of a "catnapper" taking little 20 minute snoozes every so often. But she is really happy and playful when she is awake, so I'm not pushing the nap thing yet. Maybe when she is 6 months old.
We love our little girl and can't imagine life without her!
