4 Month Dr. Visit

Kate went to the doctor yesterday and is a growing, healthy girl. She weighs 14 pounds (between the 50th and 75th percentile) and is 26.5 inches long (above the 95th percentile). She's tall and skinny! She has eczema which has spread all over her body. The Dr. thinks that is why she has had so much trouble sleeping lately. Now that we have been covering her in cream and giving her benadryl, she is sleeping through most of the night and is back to taking long naps during the day. Hopefully we'll start resting again now!! It is a testament to Kate's happy personality that even through all of this itching, she has been in a great mood!

Kate is 4 months old today!

Kate on her 4 month birthday!

Our Valentine on Valentine's Day

First time to eat rice cereal!

Okay, Clinton wants me to become a blogger so here goes. Hopefully I'll keep up with it... we'll see!

Kate is 4 months old today and I can't believe it! On one hand I feel like she is so brand new but on the other hand I feel like she has been here forever! This has been a really fun month. Kate has really developed a fun personality. She constantly smiles and laughs. She LOVES being kissed and will open her mouth to try and kiss you back. She started rolling but it really scares her so it only happens involuntarily. She grabs everything in sight now and most everything goes straight to her mouth. It is so much fun to watch her discover new things every day! She was sleeping through the night until this week when she decided to start waking up in the middle of the night. I have been recently thinking that I want another newborn until I remembered how tired I was waking up all night long! Every morning when I get her out of bed we play a game where we gurgle back and forth to one another and then Kate makes her all of her noises to see how loud she can be. She started rice cereal and loves it! Kate is such a joy and such a sweet baby. It is so much fun to see her grow up and explore new things but I have to admit I miss the newborn days where she would snuggle with me all day long. We love our baby girl so much and can't wait for another month of new experiences!
