Kenzie at 4 months

Kenzie is 4 months old. She continues to be a delight. Our favorite thing is that it just takes a glance at her, and her beautiful smile quickly appears. She has rolled now from stomach to back and back to stomach. She is reaching out to touch everything. She has passed all the 4-6 month milestones. She continues to love Abigail and the rest of the family. She talks and laughs a lot and continues to squeak, living up to her nickname, "Squeakers." Sleeping has gotten worse the last week. She likes to be swaddled tight to fall asleep but then gets frustrated in the middle of the night trying to squiggle out of it. We just took the wrap away and are trying to do without it. She's always been a good sleeper but this week has been rough. Her naps seem to be random too - no real schedule setting in yet. We've pulled out the exerciser and Bumbo, and she sits pretty well in those. She can put weight on both feet and is getting stronger and stronger. She has learned to blow bubbles with her spit, which is a new enjoyment. She always wants to be a part of the conversation. She can become frustrated with her noises and actions until we engage her as part of the group. Then she is all smiles and talks a lot to join in on our family interaction. She is adorable, but I feel her looks are constantly changing and she can look different moment to moment and angle to angle. Eating habits are OK. We started supplementing a little bit - about 4 oz at night. I think we're struggling less than with Abby, but I want to go to the lactation consultant to weigh before and after to make sure she's getting enough because it does seem like my supply is down. She checked out great at the doctor but DOES NOT like being there. She did not like being fussed with at all and screamed louder than I've ever heard her scream when she got her shot. It was weird because she is generally a laid back kid. She is 13 lbs 8 ounces (44%) and is 24 3/4 inches long (67%). Her head is 16 inches (36%).
