Four Month Checkup

(We were buying big storage bins and this sticker was in the bin. Nicole takes safety seriously!)

Nicole got her four month checkup this week. Which included new stats and more shots. She did not care for the shots. She was a grumpy girl for a couple of days.

Head: 95%
Height: 27 inches 95%
Weight: 15.5 pounds 90%

I have a biggun for a baby! I'm glad that I have a chunky healthy baby though. I prefer this to a baby who can't gain weight. I am very blessed.

Things she has started doing:

She can roll over from her stomach to her back most of the time. Sometimes she just gets frustrated and cries until we roll her over.

She likes to make cute gurgly sounds in the back of her throat.

She has learned how to pull the tabs on her diaper and likes to undo her diaper.

She is fascinated with her toes. She loves to lay on her back and pull her feet up to her face.

She loves to pull hair. Daddy has taught her that game. She thinks it is great fun. I don't much like it though.

We love our little girl and are happy that she continues to grow strong.

I love her facial expression in the picture. She's totally thinking, "What is going on?"

Alan said that her eyes look almost as big as her pacifier.

She probably wouldn't fit anyway since she's so big.

What a sweetheart! It's such a blessing to have a healthy, thriving baby.

Wow, she is a biggun! But you're right--better a healthy chunker than one failing to thrive. (My pediatrician says, "We want fat babies and skinny kids", so you must be doing something right.)

Get ready for tons of milestones being reached each month for the next several months! That's great that she's figured out how to roll over! I also think it's hilarious that she likes to undo her diaper. Thankfully, Alexis has yet to learn that trick.

Oh, and I LOVE that picture!!!
