4 Months!!

Aubrey Lane you are 4 stinking months old!!  You are just getting so big and grown up that I would like to just sit and cry.  My baby is not a newborn anymore!!  

We went to the doctor today for your shots and check up and you are doing just fabulous!  You weigh 11 pounds, 11 ounces.  Which puts you in the 10th percentile for your weight.  You are 23 1/2 inches long which puts you at the 25th percentile for your height!  You are a petite little thing!
You are feeding about 6 times a day, about 3 to 3 1/2 hours apart.  You are still nursing like a champ.  You have started showing your little feisty side when mommy takes to long to get you situated to feed. I must be on the ball or you get aggravated very quickly!  Home-girl likes her food!
You are sleeping through the night (thank you Jesus!)  You are still pretty much on the same schedule as at 3 months.  You go down around 8:30 then we wake you up to eat at 10:00.  You are back down about 10:30 and you usually go til around 5:30 or 6:00.  You seriously love your sleep.  I am so thankful because mommy loves her sleep too!! 
You are loving sitting up and get mad when left to lay on your back for too long.  You'd much prefer to be sitting up in your swing or bumbo...or better yet on mommy's hip.  You are extremely alert and absolutely captivated by the daily happenings around the house.  You don't want to miss a moment of the action! 
I'm so thrilled because you have finally started to really smile.  You are constantly smiling and laughing now and your little personality is starting to just shine through.  You still love music and sounds are a sure way to get you to smile or laugh.  You are just so sweet and when you smile...I swear my heart just melts.  
You absolutely love your hands right now.  Apparently they are the most amazing thing you've discovered.  They are always in your mouth and you will spit out your noonie for a chance at those fingers.  
This is the look I get when I try to remove those hands from your of "what do you think you are doing? I had those hands in my mouth for a reason!"
But it doesn't take much to get you back to this sweet smile.  You, Aubrey Lane, are our sweet, babbling, smiling, cooing little 4 month angel and we feel like our hearts are gonna explode with love for you! 

Mommy loves you so much!  Now stop growing and stay my baby forever!!!
