Four Months Old

Dear Liv, Happy four months! I cannot believe how quickly time is flying by. You are such a happy girl. You smile and laugh at us all the time. You smile with your whole face and I love to see your eyes sparkle. You love it when I tickle you and give you kisses. You love to hold your toys and chew on them. You've become quite the little slobber monster! I have to keep a bib on you all the time or your clothes are soaked. You are on a pretty good nap schedule, with a morning, afternoon, and evening nap each day. This past month you started sleeping in your bed. Mommy was super concerned about this transition since you share a room with Ingrid. I didn't want you to wake her up when you woke up each night. It's gone pretty well! You sleep in your bed until you wake up fir your first feeding. I nurse you in my room and then you sleep the rest of the night in the sleep and play beside our bed. After your first big block of sleep, you are usually pretty restless so i havent tried putting you back in your bed for that time period. This routine has been working really well. You have woken up your sister a couple of times, but not too many! You are still nursing which makes mommy so happy. This is about the time Ingrid refused nursing, so I'm hoping you will make it longer than her! We do supplement one to two formula bottles a day because I can't quite pump enough to keep up. You take those bottles just fine. You are the sweetest little angel baby. I love holding you and giving you millions of kisses and cuddles. You seem to be growing so quickly. At your last well-check, you were three and a half months and you weighed 12 pounds 6 ounces and you were 23 and 1/4 inches long. I am counting down the says til summer so I can see you every second! Love you so much! Mama
