Four months-Addilyn

Oh little Addi, I mean it, slow down!! You are officially rolling tummy to back and back to tummy and this momma can't even deal. Where did my tiny infant go? I love to put you in footed PJs to make you seem little just a little bit longer! You have been the cutest little smiley, giggly thing this past month. You have officially found your voice and it makes my momma heart smile. You are definitely going through a growth spurt/sleep regression, some nights are better than others. I usually have to trudge up the stairs one too many times to retrieve your paci or feed you most nights. Your swaddle days are almost over since you decided to be a roly poly:( No!! You still love to be worn and momma loves it to. You spend most days out and about in the Solly wrap and our new Wild Bird sling. I need to throw our Ergo in the car as well. Give me all the baby wearing carriers. I'm wearing you as long as possible and not going to allow you to walk early like your brother did #lastbabyprobs

You are so active. Like I said you have found your voice and have the sweetest little giggle. You don't skimp on the smiles and will smile for just about anything or anyone. If we talk to you, you instantly smile back. You have a sweet ticklish spot right on your thighs and ribs that get giggles every time. You are a rolling machine. You are actually better at rolling back to tummy than tummy to back which is backwards;) You are officially grasping at toys and interactive with your little world. You love to try to sit up so love the bumbo. I think its almost time for the exercauser. s l o w down!!

You are by far my best eater. Your daddy gave you 6 ounces the other day not realizing you only take 4 but your scarfed the whole thing down. I swore you were going to be my chunkiest when we got to your 4 month appt but you are just as tiny as your siblings. You are actually 4 oz smaller than Isabella was at this age. Can't believe we will be starting solids in a few short months. You still nurse great, if I work a few days in a row I can sense your frustration if my milk doesn't come quickly or easy enough but you always settle back in. 

Celebrating my sweet cousin's wedding!


Well we officially hit the 4 month sleep regression. I can't overly complain but sleep has been a little off. I usually replace your pacifier at least once a night. If I have to go up there more than a couple times I will feed you. You most nights eat and settle right back down. You are still swaddled tight in the Ollie World or SwaddleMe, though the days of using them is numbered at least with your arms in. You still prefer to be held and cuddled to sleep rather than in your bed for naps, I can't blame you! Holding you to sleep might be my favorite!
