Four a little

 My perfect little baby is 4 months old.  She was officially 4 months on the 26th of September but she didn't go to the doctor for her 4 month check-up until today.  We had it scheduled for last week but in the interest of having a happy baby for birthday weekend I re-scheduled for this week.

As per last time I took her immunizations worse than she did.  I couldn't sleep at all last night and had a horrible stomach ache this morning.  She didn't make a peep for her first needle, in fact she was still smiling at the nurse.  Poor baby had no idea what was coming when she got the second one.  She cried for a few minutes but got over it pretty quickly.  The nurse said she was so impressed with how quickly she was soothed when I picked her up.  She said we must be doing something right...LOL.  She is sleeping soundly now but I will keep a close eye on her.

AT BIRTH:  7 lbs 6 oz, 19.25 inches
2 MONTHS: 9 lbs 15 oz, 22.5 inches
4 MONTHS: 12 lbs 6 oz, 24 inches

They told me that her spitting up was normal, we were concerned she was spitting up too much.  The doctor also told me that from 4 months to 6 months is one of the most fun times as your baby's personality really begins to show.  Below are Elle's 4 month pictures.  Just as the doctor said at 4 months her personality has just exploded.  She is so animated and so funny.  She thinks she is pretty funny too.
