4 Months Old!!!

Our little lady is 4 Months Old!

Well actually she is almost 5 months old...but I haven't had time to post this yet so here it is.

Elijah has been calling her Miss Liv and the other boys are following.

She is still such a great baby and is happy 99.9% of the time!

She is still a peanut and I am enjoying having a baby that feels like a baby.

At her 4 month appointment she was 14 lbs and 26 inches.

Isaac's baby book was handy so I peeked to see how big he was and noticed that he was bigger than that at 2 months! Yikes! No wonder she seems so small to me!

(She is so tolerant of the glitter, girlie things and allowing me to play dress up with fun gifts from friends this adorable tutu...thanks Missy!)

She is very smiley and I LOVE watching her reaction when she sees her brothers come home from school, see her in the morning, or when her daddy comes home!

Her eyes are changing and are a hazel/brownish color...thinking they will be brown.

Her hair has a hint of red in the sun.

She is ironically our baldest child with just a bit of hair all over.

Don't worry, I have plenty of headbands to help make her feel ok with her lack of hair!

She LOVES to suck/gum her hands.

She enjoys her pacifier, but often enjoys her hands more.

She has rolled over, but prefers her tummy so she can see what is going on so she often stays that way.

She is still sleeping well and most nights will be happy being reswaddled or given her pacifier to go back to sleep.

She is still very tolerant of the fact that she is the 4th child and is pretty flexible with her sleep schedule during the day.

Miss Liv,

You are so sweet and we can't believe you are already 4 months old!  Your big brothers are so excited for you to become mobile...or so they think.  They adore you and I am having a hard time feeling that it is safe for you to be put down as one of them often picks you up and tries to carry you around!

They love you so much and I love that they can make you giggle.

You Daddy is quite smitten as well.  You are still sleeping in our room even!  Things don't feel too different yet, but I am so excited to see your girlie personality develop. 

You rarely are grumpy and if you are it sure doesn't last long.  You are all smiles from the moment you wake up to the moment you drift off to sleep!

You are such a blessing for us! We love you so much!

Love your Momma
