4 months already??

It's almost impossible to believe that 4 months have gone by already! It feels like just yesterday that we were in the hospital and seeing Brooklynn for the first time (cliché, I know, but it's true).

So, what's new with our 4 month old??

First, and foremost, she finally rolled over on camera! She's rolled over a few times here and there but I hadn't been able to catch it on video. I still don't think she's made the connection that she is the one that is rolling herself over, but she is doing it more and more.  She also likes to scoot in circles during tummy time, she will do a complete 360 if she happy enough to last that long.

She has a recent obsession with sucking in her lower lip! I don't know what the obsession is, but it has consumed her since last Saturday!
She responds to tickling with some giggles. She even had a pretty big giggle fit when I was blotting her face with a blanket last week. Is there anything cuter than a baby laugh?
She grabs at anything within reach and will bring that item to her mouth for some quality "chewing"/sucking time (some of her favorite things to eat are mommy and daddy's hands!). She seems particularly interested in my cell phone as of late, maybe a foreshadow of things to come!
She continues to eat her hands as often as possible and drools like nobody's business.
She is a happy baby and has some of the best smiles. My dad summed up her smiles when he said that they have sound!
She is growing like a champ! We had her 4 month checkup today (and shots) and she now weighs 13 lbs 10.5 oz (60th percentile) and is 25.5 inches long (95th percentile), and her head is a whopping 15 5/8 inches (20th percentile). I think her tiny head is why everyone keeps saying she is such a tiny baby. She is definitely average people!

I am so in love with my 4 month old and I am so excited for all the new milestones that are ahead of us!


  1. All I can say is SO CUTE!!! I love it. I smile the whole time while reading your blog. I especially love the last picture with the 17 weeks. What a beautiful girl. It is funny how head size can be how people measure the size of your baby. Sophie's head was always big and it makes people think she is older and bigger.

  2. She is seriously such a doll! You guys are so lucky!!

  3. Hate to break it to you, but that looked like a fall over instead of a roll over. However, I love how excited you are when she did it- I can relate to waiting forever with the camera to catch something!
