Annabelle at 4 months

Today Catie declared that Annabelle is her favorite person in the whole family. I think everyone else would agree. She is such a smiley happy little one. She is also determined and will not sit by and be ignored. She has an amazing set of lungs and can sense when you are sitting down and too comfortable. She likes to be up checking things out and doesn't want to miss a thing. She finally started sleeping again most nights too! All of her dark hair is now gone and she's turning into a little blue eyed blondie just like the rest of our kiddos. So glad she's ours!

At four months here are a few details about Annabelle:

  • She weighs 13 lb 14 oz (48%)
  • She is 24 inches (36%)
  • She wears between 0-3 and 3-6 months clothes
  • She wears size 2 diaper
  • She goes to bed around 9pm and gets up around 7 or 8am (sometimes she wakes up once before then, sometimes she doesn't)
  • She takes three naps during the day if we are home (9-11, 1-3, and 5-6) although it is rare we are actually home and it is rare we don't have a pick-up during one or two of those times, so she usually naps (or doesn't nap) on the go and doesn't get nearly enough sleep! 
  • She hates her car seat and usually cries when we are in the car. Lately though we've gone on 30 minute drives and she's stayed awake and happy the whole time and we've been surprised... so maybe she's moving out of that stage soon!
  • She nurses every 2-3 hours during the day
  • She rolls front to back and back to front and can do two rolls in a row
  • She coos and just started giggling.
  • She is very smiley and especially loves talking to Catie.
  • All of the big kids fight over who gets to talk to her, hold her, and play with her.
  • She loves sucking everything- especially my skirts, shoulder, blankets, and her fingers!

Happy 4 months to this little sweetheart!
