Four Month Update

Here is Abby's four month update. She still checks out as healthy as can be. She has a good nature with some times of fussiness, which I assume is pretty typical to most babies. She weighs 13 lbs 14 ozs (33%) and is 25 inches tall (75%). Eating habits have been OK. She hasn't been as fussy, but we weren't convinced she was getting enough, so we are now supplementing. She starts with me and then goes to the bottle. This shift, last night (11/4/07), gave us our first all night sleep session, which lasted 10 hours!!! We'll see what happens tonight. She is gulping down an extra 4-8 ounces after feeding with me, so she's obviously still hungry. She is talking up a storm. For her four month birthday, I pulled out her exersaucer, which she is enjoying. She really pays attention to what is going on around her and wants to figure out what is going on around her. She opens her mouth toward our food and reaches for it. Maybe it's because we've given her tastes of whipping cream, chocolate sauce, latte and sucked on strawberry, banana, wheat thins and belgium waffles. She smiles tons at every new person we see. I think she's pretty social. She was dancing on the couch as dad was making some dance rhythms for her. Jeremy is good at getting her to really giggle. She pulls hair, drools all over the place, blows out diapers, spits up, puts everything in her mouth and tugs at clothing...all the things that babies do. We adore this little girl.
