Georgia is Four Months Old!

Georgia-you are FOUR months old today!

Wow! That month went fast. So what have you been up to?!?

  • You are wearing 3-6 month clothing and a size 2 diaper. We go for your 4 month well baby check-up next week. I'm predicting you are 14-15 pounds. Your legs are pretty rolly and you have the cutest poochy belly!
  • You rolled over for the first time this month! You were 3 months and 1 week old. Now you roll over all the time. It makes my heart happy to see you reach your developmental milestones!
  • At 3 1/2 months you rolled from back to belly to back! Way to go baby! You seem to be advancing quickly. I think you are going to be an over-achiever.

  • You had rice cereal for the first time last week. You LOVED it! We give you a small serving every night. We thought you seemed ready to start using a spoon and we were right. 
  • You are still drinking 6-7 breastmilk bottles per day. I know this is the best nutrition for you so I am hoping we can hold off on the baby food for a couple more months. You may think differently ha!
  • You continue to sleep through the night like a champ! A typical night is 10pm-7:30am.
  • You have found your feet! You are a challenge to change at this stage because all you want to do is grab your toes
  • You have learned to grab - you are most interested in hair, toys, and your feet.

  • You love to be talked to and you smile and/or try to talk back. Your coo is the sweetest sound on earth! (I watch your rolling over video several times a day when we are separated)
  • You also love to squeal! It seems you have discovered your voice and you are letting us all know about it :)
  • You recognize voices. Funny story- daddy was called on to pray one Sunday at church. You were sleeping and as soon as you heard his voice your eyes popped open and you had a look like, "I know him!" Ha! You are such a smart baby.

  • You continue to enjoy riding in the car. We took you on a long drive last Sunday and you fell asleep and slept the whole time.
  • You still use your paci some but not a whole lot. You pacify yourself by talking, grabbing your feet, and rolling.
  • Your eyes are still blue. I'm wondering now if they are going to change? We shall see.

Every day with you is such a blessing. We love our little southern belle.
Happy 4 months Georgia Grace!
