Amelia- 4 months

Happy 4 months to our Amelia Bedelia! She is growing up so fast! Time needs to slow down!
I think 3 and 4 months are the best.. Although there are times that I miss my tiny newborn...the smiles, laughs, awareness, and sleep at night that come around this age, make it so perfect! Millie is! I really wish I could freeze time!

If I had to pick one word to describe Millie I would say...she's just a delight! She is the sweetest, happiest, and most content little lady! She's a little gal but growing great and has the biggest cheeks!! Just this week she was really taken to figuring out her hands, grabbing at objects, and loving/sucking her hands! Her favorite toys are: laying under her play gym, wooden skwish, winkel toy and she's beginning to like her Sophie giraffe.

4 month stats:
Weight: 12 lbs 6 oz (15%ile)
Length: 22 inches (<3%ile)

Millie usually sleeps from about 7:30pm-7:30am (or later). She has been sleeping through the night but this week decided she wanted to start waking up at 4 or 5am for a quick snack. Fortunately she goes right back to sleep and I'm hoping this is just a short phase. She takes 3 naps...usually a morning nap about an hour and a half after she wakes up for 1-2 hours, another nap around 1pm for ~2 hours, and another little nap around 4.

Millie loves to smile! You just need to look her way and she'll grin from ear to ear! She also loves to laugh and talk. Enjoys sitting in her Bumbo. And adores watching her silly big sister Kate! Nicknames include: Amelia Bedelia, Millie Moo, Sister, Moo-moo, and Snug-a. She's certainly got us wrapped around her little finger!
