Four Months

Aubrey Lane, you are FOUR MONTHS OLD!!!

The stats are on the picture, but you weigh 14 pounds and are 24 inches long.  You are just below the 50th percentile in height and just below the 75th percentile in weight.  You wear 3-6 months or 6 months clothes, and you just started wearing a size 2 diaper.  You have your very first cold right now, but other than that you have been pretty healthy.

Your milestones are about the same.  You pick your upper body up when on your tummy, and you are trying so hard to roll over unto your tummy from your back.  You also like to stand anytime I hold you.  Lately, you have started pulling your knees under you when you're on your tummy. 

About a month ago at 3 months, you decided that you no longer wanted a pacifier or a bottle.  So it's just me and you baby girl.  Your pediatrician normally doesn't suggest cereal or solids until closer to 6 months for thriving breastfed babies.  However, since you no longer take a bottle, she has given the okay to start you on rice cereal so that Mommy can have a date with Papa every now and then and not worry about you starving.

You still really enjoy your swing.  We have started putting you in your jumperoo and you really enjoy that too!  You have started watching TV which absolutely blows my mind.  We have your Praise Baby DVD in the car and it helps with road trips because you still don't like to ride that much.  It's not the ride that bothers you; it's the car seat.  You scream every time we buckle in it, but are quieted by Papa giving it a couple swings.

Aubrey Lane, you are such a beautiful baby.  Your eyes are still blue and your complexion is still so rosey.  People are constantly stopping me to oooh and awe over you.  They often ask me if I put make up on you because you're so pretty, but I don't.  You are just naturally so beautiful.

You are a pretty laid back baby, never too fussy (only in church, haha, which you will start going to the nursery this week).  You laugh and coo for us; however you are tough crowd.  We have to work hard for those rewards.  But we gladly do so.

I hope you get to read this blog one day kiddo.  It tells the story of our family.  The stories behind the legacy we are working hard to leave you and your brother.  I love you very much!

Happy Four Months, a little late,


  1. Happy four months Aubrey Lane!! I can relate to the only being fussy at church...our AL was grunting and pooting all up in church...and as soon as church was over...she was as calm as a lamb. So funny! Hope to get together soon...maybe over the holidays! Have a great day!

Thank you for taking the time to share a kind word with me!
