Four Month Stats

Well, we had our four month appointment today - She's off the charts! She just keeps growing and growing - now she's almost 18 lbs! The doc mentioned that sometimes bigger babies are a little slower with their motor skills, and asked me if she's rolling over from tummy to back yet - ha! She's been rolling both ways for a couple of weeks now, and he said they typically don't do that until 6 months! She also reaches and grabs toys, dogs' ears, faces and mommy's hair, she scootches along the floor (but only backwards), and she's thisclose to sitting unsupported. So she's blasting through all the milestones faster than we can keep up with her! Of course, all this bragging must mean our child is absolutely perfect, right? Well, not exactly - she's stopped sleeping through the night and started tossing and turning and eating all night long, so the doc said we could start giving her up to 2 oz. of rice cereal mixed with breastmilk at bedtime to hopefully fill her tummy and satisfy her for the night. But that's really the only problem we're having with her - she's so happy and playful and silly all day long! Even when she got her shots today, she didn't even blink an eye until the very last shot - and then she only cried for about 10 seconds and was just fine all the way home. Right now she's in her swing singing to the butterflies while I eat some lunch and put these pictures online (there are more at Picasa) -

Here she is playing with her mouth-
she makes the funniest faces now that she's discovered her lips!And here she is, devastated after scootching away from all her toys:
And because it wouldn't be a complete post until I enter another contest, here's one where she's giving away cool little baby products every day in May, and might continue into June!
