Charlotte’s Four Month Update

Charlotte’s Four Month Update

Height:
at birth: 20 inches.
at one month: 21 inches
at two months: Unsure
at three months: 23.5 inches
at four months: 24.5 inches

Weight:
at birth: 6 lb 5 oz
at one month: 7 lb 11 oz
at two months: Unsure
at three months: 10 lb 4 oz
at four months: 12 lb 3 oz

Clothing Size:  It still depends on the brand. I’ve noticed that Target and Walmart’s clothes tend to run a little big, so she can wear newborn and 0-3 months in those.

Milestones:
-She can hold her head up! It just seemed to come out of nowhere!

-She’s started arching her back and acting like she wants to roll over, so I think I’ll be writing about that in her five month update!

-She mimics noises sometimes, and it cracks me up! She usually likes to say “ooh” and then giggle.

Likes: cuddling, eating (always!), playing with some of her toys

Dislikes: tummy time, being without her pacifier, waiting on someone to fix her a bottle!  

Sleep: She’s always been a pretty good sleeper (except the night of her surgery), and the last few days, she’s actually slept 10-12 hours a night! I don’t know what has caused it, but I hope it lasts forever…bahahaha.

Best Moment: Getting discharged from the hospital!

Worst Moment: Her surgery. It went well, and she handled it like a champ, but it was so hard to see her feeling uncomfortable and thinking about her being confused and in pain. The surgery had to be done, and I’m glad we’re on this side of it now, but it was still the first of many, many hard moments that I’ll face as a mother.

Eating: She’s been eating more since she hasn’t been able to use her pacifier, but she’s also always been a big eater! We got the go ahead from the doctor today to try cereal, so we’re really excited to introduce it to her!!

Mommy Body Update: Ugh. I feel like a broken record with this. I honestly haven’t been trying too hard to lose any weight, but I’m frustrated with how I look right now. I know the weight didn’t pile on overnight, and I haven’t been working on it, so I can’t get too upset with myself that I haven’t lost much, but I am. Just, ugh.

Overall: Her personality just continues to grow and develop more each day. She’s such a great baby, and it’s fun seeing her learn new things!

We love you, baby girl!
