Happy 4 Months to Lucy!!

So I am a little behind the time...but Lucy turned 4 months on Saturday!  But she was very excited to celebrate with her surrogate Uncle Nick and his new wife, Laura, at their wedding!  And she looked darn cute celebrating!

We went to the doctor yesterday for her check-up, which she did wonderful!  Shots this time around were a million times better than the last time.  Lucy only cried for maybe 5 seconds and we had a great rest of the day, unlike last time, she cried for 6 hours.  We have totally weaned her off her acid reflux medicine, but the doctor wants us to try and give it to her once a day.  But I think we are going to wait and see if it gets better now that she is eating solids.  Speaking of solids, last Sunday we gave her oatmeal and applesauce.  It was like she was born with a spoon in her mouth!  She knew what to do, and seemed to enjoy all the new tastes.  Lucy obviously liked the applesauce best, but the oatmeal wasn't too bad either.   

Lucy here is what you are up to at 4 months...
-You weigh 20 pounds...greater than the 95%
-You are 25 3/4 inches long...90%
-Your head is in the 50%
-You are wearing size 12-18 months clothes
-You are in size 3 diapers...which are getting snug around the middle of your belly
-You are grabbing anything you can get your hands on!  Hair, necklaces, earrings, shirts, anything! 
-I swear you are waving to people, or trying to.  When someone talks to you, you put your hand out like you are saying hello, or trying to shake their hand.  It's so cute!  Mostly people fist bump you :)
-You are sitting up about 75% of the time by yourself
-You are not rolling over yet, which is no surprise to have a lot to roll over :)
-You have a really bad dry skin rash on your forehead and the sides of your face...but we still think you are pretty!
-You have slept through the night maybe 3 times, you mostly get up once, sometimes twice depending on what time you go to bed
-We have yet to nail down a schedule, but we do have a semi-routine, it's just done at different times each day
-You are still laid back, loving, happy, giggly, and sweet!  You LOVE your sister, tolerate your dad, and are a momma's girl!

Happy 4 months, Miss Lucy!!! I am in love with her little rolls. She is just precious! My girls were always over 95th on everything and Lily's head was always off the chart for some reason. LOL! I love those family pictures! Those are awesome!!
