Avery is 4 Months!

A little late, but that's OK :)

My sweet Avery, you are 4 months old! And while I usually say how fast the time is flying, for some reason this month it doesn't feel like that.  It just feels *right* that you are 4 months.  Maybe it's because I have really been soaking up the moments with you.

As you can see from the above picture, this was the month you lost mostly all of your hair, *tear*! I am so sad you are bald but your cradle cap was INSANE.  It only got worse and worse and I tried everything! The only option was to take it all off and with it went all your hair.

You are still my happy girl! (most of the time) As long as you are fed and not sleepy, you are all smiles all of the time.

This month (11/16) we moved you into your room in your crib.  Another *tear* for Mommy! I was very apprehensive about transitioning you but it was time. I was so worried you wouldn't sleep well either since we moved you from the swaddle to the sleep sack, but baby girl, you surprised me and did just perfect!

Speaking about sleep - you are still sleeping through the night (THANK YOU!!!) You go to bed around 8 and sleep until 6:30, sometimes later, sometimes earlier, but I will take it!

You have become quite the drooler! Your shirt is soaked 5 minutes after being awake so you go through many wardrobe changes!

You are eating 6-7 times a day with all of those being breastfed except for 1 feeding, which is usually your first feed of the day, in which you get a bottle of breastmilk since I am up much earlier than you are so I need to pump :)  I love our nursing relationship so much and while I don't have a goal in mind, I am hoping to go the full year with nursing you.

You still love laying on your back playing with your toys, especially the lion, he is your best friend :) You also like looking at your toys or books on your tummy


This month I took you and your brother and sister to the zoo all by myself, I repeat, ALL BY MYSELF! You don't know this now but that is huge :)

You are wearing 3 month clothes but I think you will be growing out of those soon and you are now in 6 month pj's

You love to "talk" all day long! Now you just lay in your crib before you go to bed or when you wake up and just talk to yourself! All while eating your hands :)

This month was such a joy baby girl! I look forward to watching you (and your hair!) grow! Mama loves you to infinity!
