4 Months Already!

Kaylie turned 4 months old today. Too bad she spent the day on oxygen and at the doctors office but luckily mom got to spend the day with her! She is getting so big and everyone mistakes her for a 6-9 month old little girl! She is now 14 lbs 9 oz which is the 72%percentile and wears mostly 3-6 month clothes. Except for her sleepers. She is quickly outgrowing those because she is so long! She measured at 26 1/4 inches long! Thank goodness Andrea sent us a bunch of clothes for her! That is the 97%percentile! She is so tall! We all wonder where she is getting it from! Derick says she will definitely be a basketball player! Her head is about 43 cm which is the 91% percentile. See...big girl!

She is still on breastmilk bottles. Thank goodness my milk supply has held up, especially with being back at work. It's a pain to pump but I'm so glad that I'm doing it and she's getting milk instead of formula. This weekend we are going to start giving her rice cereal and see how she does with that.

She's been doing a lot better at not spitting up when she eats and still sleeps through the night! Thank goodness! It really amazes me that she can sleep that long. I put her down around 9pm and she doesn't wake up until around 7am! Yes we are lucky with this girl! She does so good at church and everyone thinks she is adorable! There were a lot of babies born around her birthday so I can't wait until she is big enough to play with all the kids. She talks all the time to Derick and loves to tell him about her day when we get home! She loves her daddy time! She also loves the TV she just sits and watches sports with Derick. If I try to change her she wiggles all around until she can see the TV. She loves cartoons and would lay so still in her crib at the hospital and watch them!

She still doesn't roll all the way over. She gets to her side and is content to just lay there. Lazy little girl! :) She also puts everything in her mouth! Fingers, blankets, toys, everything. She also licks anything around. She will lick the couch, the carpet, fuzzy blankets, and yes even mom and dad!

She also loves to kick and hates having things on her feet. That includes socks and blankets. She even kick you if you are sitting close enough to touch her feet! (yes she is doing this to my left arm right now!) oh and she is really good at blowing bubbles! She does really good at the sitters and the boys all love her. They all call her baby K. She is such a happy baby and I can't believe she is already 4 months. Next month we are going to Arizona to see Terra's new little guy Kadin Riley who came on the 2nd. I am so excited to see everyone and have everyone finally meet Kaylie.

I realized that all my post are usually about Kaylie but that is pretty much all that is going on with Derick and I. We are both still working. My next track break is April 4th and I can't wait to be home with Kaylie again. We had our friends Ben and Misty come up from down South with there little girl Aspen and son Hunter. It was fun to have them stay with us and to see the kids. We also went up to the Hunting Expo but decided not to go inside this year, especially since Kaylie wasn't quite cooperating that day! Other than Kaylie getting sick, it's been pretty quiet around here!
