4 months!!

 4 months!!

Don't worry..... even she knows she's gorgeous!

Working on holder her own bottle

So basically this month is going to be me showing off my adorable daughter. I mean, seriously, should we get Gap on the phone ASAP, or what?

She had been sleeping through the night until about a week ago, and she now gets up once per night. She has been running a fever, and we are praying it is just teething... she has ALL the other signs (chewing, drooling, slight runny nose). Of course, mommy and daddy were overloaded with information after our amnio and hearing that she may possibly be a carrier for something called Nephropathic Systinosis is always in the back of our minds. What does that look like? How do we test? Is she really one of the 200 people in world that has it?

The sleep thing. If I were to give her a bottle she would go right back down, but we did that with Hunter and the pediatrician always told us that they CAN sleep through the night at 4 months. So- I get up with her, and rock her back to sleep. if she were in her crib, I would probably let her have about 5 minutes to try to get back to sleep on her own, but she is swaddled in the Rock N' Play in our room so I try to get her back down. Hoping this passes soon.

She is still wearing size 1 diapers and 0-3 month clothes. These are actually still kind of big on her, but the newborn things are definitely too small, so we are in the middle.

We started rice or oatmeal in her bottles at night, but are holding off on the veggies until another month. I was kind of bummed, but she needs the calories from her high calorie formula more than carrots!

She is super smiley and such a happy baby! The weather is cooling off a little in the evenings (sometimes....) so we hang out in the driveway while Hunter runs around. The other day, she was just watching him and laughing so hard! Althought it is early, I can tell that they are going to be best of friends.


  1. It's crazy how much she looks like you and your mom! Pretty ladies! Hoping she resumes her good sleep habits soon! I don't know if Hunter did this, but Evan has definitely had periods of sleep regression during peak developmental stages.

  2. Definitely a Gap model baby! They are both too cute! I need to take their pictures sometime!

  3. Jenny - I received your message, I can't believe you would be so generous to let me borrow your doppler! That would be INCREDIBLE! Thank you so so so much. My personal email is, you can message me there. Seriously, that's so kind and thoughtful, I'm so touched! xo
