4 months

our baby girl is growing so fast. we went to her 4 month check up today and she weighed 15 lbs 6 oz which is in the 86th percentile. she measured in the 98th percentile for length, but those are just numbers. the fun growth is watching her little personality come out and watching her learn so many new things.

zoe is...

...having a lot of fun discovering her voice: cooing, squealing, babbling and giggling
...happiest when comforted by her mama
...learning that it's a lot of fun to be on her belly where she can look around
...pushing herself up with her arms quite well and is learning how to push with her feet
...scooting her way toward toys, though it takes her a little while :)
...interested in watching her brother no matter what he is doing
...happy to sit with malachi and i when we're reading
...grabbing at anything and everything she can and puts everything into her mouth
...sucking on a pacifier to help her go to sleep but prefers to suck on her fingers when she is awake
...attaching herself to a little blanket that was given to her from some friends of ours
...adorable when she sleeps. she has one arm covering her face, the other is usually holding the blanket
...still waking at night, which i think is fine for a 4 month old, call me crazy
...loves to cuddle, during the day or night ;)
...a beautiful girl with big blue eyes (dark blue, but still blue for now, we'll see if they change), cheeks that call to be kissed a thousand times a day and a full head of hair, still dark brown in color but seems to be getting lighter
...showing interest in what goes on at meals, though i have no need to start her on solids any time soon (you just can't beat the convenience and nutrition of mama's milk, not to mention at 15+ lbs she is obviously getting plenty)
...very content laying on the floor or 'standing' in her exersaucer amazing BLESSING!

She is so adorable. I can't believe she sits still when reading books.
