4 Months Old!

Sara Kate, you are 4 months old today! What have you been up to?
(finally some smiley monthly shots...yay!)
- You are a big girl now and have started going to school! You go from about 7:30 to 3:30 or 4. While at school, you've been taking 3 naps (shocking!) according to your report cards, and you get 2 bottles, around 10:30 and 2.
I took your picture for the first 3 days. Here's your 1st day of school.
2nd day of school.
3rd day of school.
- Speaking of eating, you are still exclusively breast fed, and we don't have plans to add anything else to your diet yet. You nurse first thing in the morning, you are eating between 8-9 oz. per bottle at school, you nurse sometime between 5:30 and 7, and then you usually get a little 'top off' before bed. You are eating about every 4 hours.
- You are still sleeping through the night. You sleep from about 9:30 at night to 6 in the morning.
- You are a really happy baby, unless you are hungry! You love to smile and giggle, and you're making tons of new noises. You can be pretty vocal sometimes, and it cracks us up (see video from last night for an example)! In fact, today during church you decided to start making one of your new noises. Daddy quickly tried to stuff the pacifier in your mouth to quiet you down. :-)
- Your hands are still super delicious. So are some of your toys.
- You found your feet! They haven't made it to your mouth yet, but you love to grab them, especially when your feet are bare. You especially love to grab your feet while you are getting your diaper changed!
- You haven't rolled over yet. No biggie though, says the pediatrician.
- You are still wearing 3 month clothes. Carter's brand fits you best, and that's what we have the most of. You are still wearing 0-3 month Gerber and Carter's footy pajama's but they seem to be getting a little too short. We may have to go up a size in those soon.
- You are in in size 2 diapers. We use mostly use Luv's. Pampers fit you good, too, but they tend to give you diaper rash.
- You are loving toys, including your activity center. You even sit in a jumper at school and you seem to like that, too.
- You seem to have discovered the dogs. You love to watch them closely when they walk by, especially 'the brown one' (aka Cody). They still don't pay too much attention to you, but that will all change when you can start throwing food on the ground! :-)
- I say this every month, but it's so much fun to see what you new thing you will learn next. You are the light of our lives, and we love you more and more every day!

  1. Hey Kristen! I remember meeting you recently at Target! Guy has told me about you living up here and said we really should get together for dinner. You know how those things always talk about it and are bad about actually doing it... anyway, we really should sometime soon. Sara Kate is just beautiful. Your 4-month update is great with all the pictures!
