Four Months!

Our precious girl turned 4 months old on February 21st! Vivian is such a happy baby and loves to smile and giggle.  She is still super laid back and really cuddly.  She loves being held and just hangs out sitting out on our laps while she watches her sisters have fun!  I can't say it enough, Vivian is such a good baby!  We took her to the doctor for her 4 month visit and she is doing perfect.

Here are her 4 month stats:
Height: 24 inches (45%)
Weight: 14 pounds 14 ounces (70%)
Head: 15 1/4" (5%)

•This month Vivian woke up probably one or two times every night to eat.  She went to sleep around 8:30 or 9 and woke up between 2 and 5 to eat again and then up for the day around 8/8:30.  Towards the end of the month I switched her to a sleep sack which has caused a bit more restlessness and 2 feeding nights.  She is adjusting pretty well, but she really loved the swaddle!
•She is taking 3 or 4 naps per day, depending on the length of her naps.  I think she sleeps about 4 hours during the day.
•She still eats 6-7 times a day and still just milk.
•She is rolling everywhere!  Front to back and back to front.  This is so much sooner than our other 2 girls.
•She loves looking at and playing with her hands.
•We switched her to a sleep sack towards the end of this month
•Likes to stick all of her toys in her mouth and grab at all of the toys on her mat.
•Enjoys sitting in the bumbo and has started playing in her jumper! 
•Loves bath time!
•Almost always happy when she is getting a diaper or outfit change.
Okay, here are some pictures of our 4 month old!

Love Day!!

My 3 little loves!!!

Three Months!

Our baby turned 3 months old on January 21st.  She is not-so-newborn anymore, which makes me kind of sad, but she is starting to show her little personality and we love it.  She is still very sweet and loves to cuddle but is starting to like to "play" more and more.  Here is what is new with her this month.
  • Weighs 13 pounds, 2 ounces
  • She normally goes down about 8:30 or 9 at night and is up by 8 or 8:30 the next morning.  She will wake up once at night to feed anytime between 3 and 5.  We have the occasional two feedings at night.
  • She is now on a loose schedule.  Usually eats at about 8:30, 11:30, 2:30, 5:30, 8:30, and then once or twice at night. 
  • She is still only able to be up about and hour and a half before she needs a nap. 
  • She can take a bottle pretty good, but does not really prefer it.
  • She is smiling more and more now, and we love it!  She had her first giggles this month!
  • Definitely knows her mommy and daddy.  
  • Starting to watch Sophia and Addison.
  • Still swaddled at night.  
  • She sleeps great in her crib at night but she still likes to sleep in the swing for naps.
  • Notices her hands and stares at them.  Also puts her hands in her mouth all the time.
  • Started pulling on the toys on the toy mat.
  • Rolls over from tummy to back and just started rolling back to tummy! 
  • Has discovered her tongue and sticks it out constantly.  
  • Size one diapers and size 3 or 6 month clothes.

Elsa wanted to be in the photo shoot too.

She loves the bumbo!
