Abigail is 4 months old! This post is a little late, and the picture is a little blurry, but c'est la vie!
We had her 4-month well visit on Tuesday morning, and here are her stats.
Weight: 14lb 9oz...very close to what I guessed! I was thinking around 15.
She is perfectly average in every way! 50th percentile for both weight and height. As our doctor said, boring is good. :)
I suspect she's beginning to grow some little teeth under those gums...excessive drooling, raking her gums across my shoulder bones, and a newfound interest in her Sophie the giraffe all point to the beginning of this lovely little stage of teething. It doesn't seem to be tormenting her too badly yet, though.
She's still drinking just 5 bottles every day, usually 5-7oz a feeding. Our doc said she was good to go for solids, but I think I'll wait until the Christmas holidays when we're up in NC to start. That way we get through most of the holiday season without having to think about it. It's funny, with your first you're so eager to do everything right away, and when it's your third you're like "let's put off what's not essential so as to make life easier, k?!".
Abigail is taking 2 great naps a day, morning and afternoon. She's been known to catch a cat nap before lunch and dinner, as well.
She's smiling bigger and wider every day, and we've even gotten a chuckle out of her! She's cooing more and loves to reach up and try and grab whatever is dangling in front of her...sometimes it's my hair and she can cause some pain!
She's rolled from back to front, but that's about it. Her head control is getting better and she loves to look around at what's going on.
She's such a little sweetie! We are enjoying her mucho!
