Okay, so this post is a little late. Bella is now 4 months and 2 weeks old! But at least now I have her stats from her 4 month checkup. So here is her monthly update!
She weighs 14 pounds now and is 24 inches long!
4-5 ounces of breastmilk every 3 hours.
( She is drinking much better from the bottle now while I am at work.)
She also eats 2-3 spoonfuls of rice cereal. ( She is not a big fan yet)
She sleeps a 1 hour nap every 3 hours during the day. Recently, she has
been waking up several times during the night. We have been doing our
best to get her back on her nightly sleep schedule. And to Grace and
Tara, I am relieved that you both blogged about sleep issues around the
4 month mark! I have also looked it up on the Babywise blog and found
a whole post dedicated to 4 month sleep issues. It must be a common
enough problem for other moms following this method.
Hope this stage passes quickly!!
Bella is rolling over!! Yay! She also loves her jumperoo and still loves
her playmat. Her Little People Barnyard has also become a favorite. She
loves hearing the different animal sounds. Bathtime and Mickey Mouse
Clubhouse are still favorites as well. And of course her sisters are
Rolling over, grabbing at things, and putting her paci in her mouth.
Here is a video of Bella rolling over. It takes her a couple
of minutes, but she finally gets it! (Press the pause button on the
playlist to here the video)
*Favorite thing to do this month*- Roll over, sit up with support, and chew on her
Bella has been such a blessing to us and we are just loving her to pieces! As one of her little outfits reads, she is now " Just one of the girls"!!
