Growing Up: Hattie at Four Months

Man, I have got to get better at this Mommy-Blogger thing! ;-)

What's that, Hattie? Time for your 4-month post? Umm... yes, I think so! :-)

At four months...

She's 25.5 inches long.

She's 12 pounds 5 ounces.

Favorite toys: Puppy Tunes; my Build-A-Bear (maybe I should get her, her own in the future. ;-) ); a soft, little lavender chimp rattle; her lovie; the O'Ball Rattle (this thing is SO cool!); 24/7 Doll (which she dropped while we were in the grocery store, and it's gone forever. :-( She may or may not be getting a new one for Christmas... ;-) ) (And if *you* need/want to buy more toys, try out these coupons for Overstock.com.)

which she probably loves more than anything... LOL.

Still LOVES being in the Moby. She very rarely falls asleep in it though. LOL. :-p

Most of her clothes are 3-6 months. Footie pajamas and pants are still 6-9 months. ;-)

Has become quite vocal... talking to strangers she likes (usually older women... LOL) or singing along to music (like John Mayer...). And I LOVE this! Tee hee.

Still SUCH a great sleeper. (8:30pm to 9-ish am at night, and then three naps during the day).

Usually takes about three naps a day when our schedule allows. Getting better with being awake for longer periods though... Yesterday, we were out nearly all day, and she just had to take cat naps (30-45 minutes) in the car or stroller. She was a perfect angel all day. Didn't fuss or cry once. Hoorah! I'm wondering if this was a fluke... LOL. :-p (Or maybe just had cabin fever since I've been sick, and she was *ecstatic* to be out of the house... ;-) )

Really enjoys being in the stroller, but if I have it reclined, she sits up in it. And if I sit her all the way up, she doesn't like how the harness fits. LOL. Silly girl.
Is nearly sitting up on her own. She can sit up while holding her hands on the floor in front of her. And she can sit up on her own for a good few seconds.
Loves to grab her toes.

She gets flirty and giggles when people say hello to her. This face is *darling*, and i love it. LOL.

Enjoys books far more than toys that make noise and/or light up (okay, we only have one toy that does that... LOL).

Can sit up on her knees and elbows. (Holy cow, she may be crawling soon!)

Is kinda mobile... she can turn in circles on her tummy and scooch and scooch on her back. 

She can pretty much roll over from her back to her tummy (save for one arm). And she can roll from tummy to back like a champ (I'll post the video! Tee hee).

Is very interested in spoons and forks when I'm eating food. I got curious... and gave her breastmilk on a spoon. Yes, she liked that. It was too cute.

She can hold a sippy cup (empty) and bring it to her mouth. Did this for the first time at 3.5 months. Craziness.

Still the sweetest, little baby ever. :-)

Our babies are almost the same size. Clara had her 4-month checkup yesterday - 25.25 inches and 12 pounds. :) Tall and skinny! Hattie's adorable.
