Four Months Old!



I can't believe our sweet little Sophie is already four months old!  I took her in for her appointment on the 6th, and she is finally climbing the charts.  She is now in the 50th percentile for weight and head circumference.  She's still in the 25th percentile for height, but I'm just glad she's healthy and growing!  We love having sweet little Sophie in our family.  Here are some tidbits about Sophie at four months old:

-Sophie is starting to really love peek-a-boo, especially with Michael.  He can make her laugh harder than anyone when he plays peek-a-boo with her.

-Sophie is a very content baby (as long as she's well-fed).  She will lay on a blanket on the floor for an hour or two all by herself just playing with her toys and wiggling to her heart's content.

-Sophie takes after her big brother Calvin emotionally, I think.  She is hot or cold, and it turns on a dime.  It's especially comical to me at church when little girls or sweet old ladies will come up and smile at her and try to make her laugh.  She'll smile politely back for a couple of seconds and then out of nowhere just start screaming at the top of her lungs.  I try to tell them it's nothing personal.

-Sophie loves her toes.

-Sophie is hungry.  Very hungry.  She must be seriously trying to catch up to her cousins Jane and Lily, because today she ate some mushed up watermelon, a bowl of banana oatmeal cereal, half a container of baby bananas, two bowls of rice cereal, and half a container of sweet potatoes.  In addition to nursing at least every 2 hours.  Woooooow.

We love you, Sophie!  You are the best!

Oh my goodness she is too cute and smiley!!! And I also find it hilarious that she is so petite but has a bigger appetite than Elliot.
