4 Months!!

Here are some 4 month shots on the infamous green chair and with the pink bear, She smiled a bit and just opened her mouth wide a lot too:

And one in the bumbo..her new fav spot.

A few days after Reese turned 4 months old, Patrice, Ally and Erika (college friends/rommates) came to visit. We had a great weekend and hung out with Meg and Lucy too. The girls went out on Sat. night in the Dillon minivan to Europa (in Cov) and LBYC! Earlier that day we went to the park. Here are some pics:

At President's Park with their "Best Friends" shirts

In the "Burpberry" onesie from Ally 

Reese yawning before we went out (she was so tired at this point, but stayed up because of all the action at our house)
Then a couple minutes later she was out - sucking on her fingers of course. 

4 MONTH DR. APPT. - 6 days after Reese turned 4 months old, Ty took her to her Dr. appt. and these were her stats:

WEIGHT: 15.3 lbs (81% - woohoo!)
HEIGHT: 25" (74%)
BMI 17.19

She got a couple shots and the Dr. said she has mild torticollis (head tilt). We take her to PT tomorrow and will see what we need to do - maybe stretches or something? Hopefully it can be fixed soon. It sounds funny when I say Im taking my 4 month old to physical therapy..but at least it's not serious. Or hope not!
They also told us we can  to give her rice cereal in the next month or 2 and then can start introducing foods. Im in no rush, since bottles are easy, but Im sure it'll be fun to start her on other things in a bit too.

15 and 16 weeks old

So updating this blog every 3-4 weeks was NOT my intention, I'd like to post entries once a week, but that just doesn't happen. At least Im getting things down eventually though. This is a great e-baby book and way for me to look back at Reese growing up.  (Thanks to my co-worker Nicole for the idea).

15 weeks:
Reese was sleeping through the night (swaddled) for the past 5 weeks, but got up 3 nights this week for some reason. Then she slept through again. You just never can predict them, I guess. She has been taking longer midday naps, as well as one in the morning and 2 others throughout the day still. She is over 14 lbs, too! She's beefing up. She gets cuter and cuter every day!
We've noticed some of her hair is finally starting to fall out in the back and on the sides. We find it in her bed, on blankets and stuck in the rolls in her neck.

Grandpa came to visit and watched her a few times on his own.

Thanks to Jen for the bow, Tara for the onesie and Mimi for the skirt/pants!

I love my ball from Megs

Derby party where she was overwhelmed by all the people and cried most of the time. 

Half naked babies are cute!

Tummy time isnt her favorite yet.

Still getting used to the bumbo!

See the bald horizontal stripe? 

I also enjoyed my first Mother's Day. Ty (and Reese) got me a card, Pandora charm, made me breakfast and let me sleep in! Ty also cleaned the bottles and pump parts all day, which no one likes to do. We also went to Gram's house for dinner. Again, like the Derby party she was overwhelmed and cried most of the time. That was a rough 2 days in a row. Thank goodness for the Moby though, which is where she slept at both places!
16 weeks
She is now starting to reach (slightly) and grab for items. She can now also hold one thing and bring her one hand to meet the other. She is putting this in her mouth a lot now! Still won't really take a pacifier, but loves to suck on toys and her hands. She even held her bottle by herself a couple times this week - with our supervision of course.
