Lily Jo is 4 months

Our little girl is growing like a weed.  She is four months old and we love her to pieces.  Here is what Lily Jo has been up to this past month...

  • Lily still enjoys mealtime.  She nurses during the day and takes one bottle before she goes to bed.  The past few nights we have mixed in an ounce of formula with the breast milk, as I am unable to keep up with this big eater!
  • Lily loves to sit in her bouncer and lay on her play mat.  She works hard to get the ring on her play mat in her mouth and kicks her legs in excitement when she nabs one.  She has also sat in the Bumbo a few times and doesn't mind it.
  • Lily loves the books Brown Bear, Brown Bear and The Very Busy Spider.  These were some of Luke's favorites as well.  
  • Sleep is one of Lily's favorite things.  She takes two good naps during the day and another mini nap in the late afternoon.  At night she is getting up once to eat and a few other times for her pacifier.  We know a full night's sleep is on the horizon!
  • When Daddy gets home, Lily loves going on 'pony rides' on his knee.  She opens her mouth wide with excitement as she bounces up and down.
  • Our baby girl still spits up quite a bit after each meal.  We use swaddling blankets to protect ourselves from the inevitable.  
  • Lily is pretty good at sleeping in the car, but once the car is stopped, her eyes are wide open and she is ready to play.
  • We tried out the infant Baby Bjorn the other day for a walk and she wasn't the biggest fan.  We will try again another day.
  • Lily's eyes follow her big brother around all day.  She loves watching him play!
  • At her four month well visit, Lily weighed in at 13 pounds 5 ounces (30%), was 24 inches long (47%), and her head circumference was 42 centimeters (89%).  She was a rock star when it came to her shots, which made me really happy.
