Miss H is 4 months




Harper you are FOUR months old!   


This month you weigh 13.11 pounds.  You are now about 25 inches long! You are a growing girl and we couldn't be happier.  The Dr. said you are still keeping a  beautiful and round head.  You are still wearing size 1 diapers. 

Here are a few things you are really loving this month:

Smiling: You are still such a great smiler.  I love that when other people talk to you you let out the cutest smile!  It's your way of saying hello.  You are such a great little smilier...I don't know many babies that wake up with such a huge grin.  I love that you are the happiest girl around. 

Talking: Let's just say you are not shy about it.  You are a talker baby.  You can talk and talk to anything from me to your toys.  I love to hear all your new noises you are making.  You have the sweetest voice around.  I can even catch you talking or making coo'ing sounds in your sleep.  It is probably the cutest thing ever...and a sweet sound to hear over the monitor.

Awareness:  You are now very aware of what is going on around you.  You have become aware when other people hold you...sometimes your not 100 percent sure but normally you go to anyone.  Not only are you aware of the people around you...but you have found a new person in our house.

WINSTON: You now are fully aware that you have a brother dog.  You love to watch him roam around.  You have even begun reaching for him.  Sometimes if he lays too close you can grab him...he is still pretty sure you are cool, but I worry that soon he will realize you are going to be after him!  I think you will be the best of friends.  Winston is very protective of you, he dislikes it when other dogs come near. 

Sleep: Welcome to your CRIB in your BEDROOM!!  Yes, sweet baby girl mommy has moved you out to your room.  You sleep pretty good. Most nights you sleep about 5 1/2 hours for the first stretch.  Then you need a little snack and back to sleep.  You normally only wake up 2 times at night!  Your mommy is happy you are a good sleeper.     We have got a nice little night time routine going so bed time is pretty good.  Naps are going well.  You typically take 3 but on days we are busy our out and about you get a solid 2.  No matter if you have a nap or not you are a sweet baby! We couldn't be more blesses.


Your hands:  You are still so in love with your hands.  Not only are you a pro at getting them in your mouth this month.  You have become so skilled with your hands.  You can now find the toy you want and get it to your mouth with ease.  It is crazy to watch how quick and easy grabbing toys is now that you are bigger. Not only do you love to grab toys...but Mommy's hair still proves to be your constant hold.  If I am holding you, you are holding my hair.  I have to warn people when holding you to watch their hair!


Your legs:  You LOVE to STAND on your little legs.  You really like to be held up so you can stand and talk.  You have become such a pro that we have introduced the saucer!  You really enjoy standing and playing with all the toys around you.  You have even mastered a few.  

TOES: Guess who found their toes this week!  Yep you have found them and are trying to master the toe in mouth move.  It is so cute to watch you sit and hold those toes.  Now if only you could figure out the easiest way to get them in your mouth.  Bath time will never be the same between you trying to eat your toes and the kicking and splashing that now goes on.  Yes, you realized if you kick your feet in the water....it splashes everywhere, it's pretty cute.

Rolling over: Yes mama, you have learned to roll over.  You can roll from your back to your tummy.  Rolling over and your first night in your crib all happened on the same day.  You are a busy little one.  The first time your rolled over you did not like it...you cried.  Not sure if you cried because you were shocked to be on your tummy....or if mommy and daddy's yelling of excitement scared you.  But now you can roll over and not be so sad.  You still are not doing it all the time, but you do roll over at least 1-3 times a day.  


GIGGLE:  You had your first giggle this month...man was it cute!  You are such a cute little giggle girl.  I can't get enough of it.

Things you are almost doing:

Crunch time: You are still trying like crazy to sit up.  You have gotten much better at it.  If you are leaned on a pillow now you can pull yourself up...but quickly fall to the side.  In your car seat you try to sit it up when just chilling out.  


You are almost saying words with mmmmaaaa and daaaa's...Every once and a while I will hear a mama or da in your talking.  However, you mostly make cute coo's and such cute sounds.  I know soon enough you will be saying daa daa like a crazy woman!


Food:  Thank heavens your Dr. and I are on the same page...ha ha ha!  Well anyways, no need to be trying baby food until 6 months.  This made your mommy so happy...I'm just not ready for you to be big enough for food.  Thank you Dr. Mercer for not pushing food until 6 months...

You had a few FIRST this month! 
  • You slept in your room!
  • You rolled over and giggled
  • You found your toes. 
  • Your first Rangers game.
  • Your first visit from your Aunt Melissa.  
  • Your first hotel stay! 
  •   

  • Auntie Melissa
  • You had a few 2nd's this month too! You had your 2nd car trip.  You slept the whole way to Austin what a great little trooper.  Then you had your 2nd visit to see your Queen Tia, Uncle B, Prima Ems, and Primo B.  We surprised them...and man where they shocked! 


Your favorite toy is Sophie:  
I think you love her because she is easy to move around, squeaks, and taste pretty good! We don't leave the house without her.


Your also loving your blankees.  You love to hold them and pull them up to your face.  You always travel with your blankee, it keeps you company in your car seat.  When you are super tired and can't fall asleep mom will let you hold your blankee (but quickly steals it away once you are asleep...no sids here)




I feel like this month was a big one.  You hit many huge milestones and have only continued to grow.  I know you are going to be 1 before I can even blink and that makes mommy so sad.  (don't worry I've already started planning her birthday) I have loved every month thus far, but can tell that these next few months are going to super fun.  Daddy loves playing with you now.  He can always get a smile out of you even if you are hungry or tired.  You just love your daddy...and have him wrapped around that pinky already!  The Dr. told us you couldn't be more perfect and well we pretty much agree.  I know I say this every month, but your an amazing baby!  I don't know many 4 babies that travel or go with the flow as well as you.  We love you all the way to god and back!

And for the monthly comparison....
3 months
