Four Months of Ellia

Age: Four months
Height: 25 inches, 90th (ish) percentile! Whose kid is this? ;)
Weight: 13.1 pounds, 50th (ish) percentile
Clothing size: She's wearing 0-3 and 3-6 month onesies, 3-6 month pjs, and 3-6 pants that are already getting too small for her not-so-tiny legs. :)
Diaper size: 2
Eating: Formula while I'm at work, and primarily nursing when we're together.  It seems to be working out pretty well this way, so I guess we're just kind of playing it by ear.  She still eats every two hours or so.  And in terms of formula, she's been drinking 4-5 oz at a time.
Sleeping: You guessed it - still sleeping in our bed.  She's slowly getting better with naps in her crib though.  I'm not really into the idea of having to get up to flip her from her belly to her back every time she rolls over and can't do it herself (which is constantly).  So, in our bed she will stay - for now.  It is starting to get a little crowded in there though!  She'll typically fall asleep by 11:00 and wake up one or two times during the night to eat.  Lately, she's been getting up by 8:00, or sometimes she'll wake up for an hour or so around 6:00 and go back down for a bit.  Napping is still all over the place.
Favorite toys: See our three + four month favorites here. :)
Loves: Still loving being held (while standing/walking).  Walking around outside.  Hammocking.  Watching TV.  Being held + cuddling until she falls asleep.  Grabbing anything and everything she can with her hands.  Kicking the dust up. ;)

Ellie clearly wishes she could just get up and walk around.  She loves to be held so she's standing, and hates being held like a baby on her back unless she's super sleepy and has a binky in her mouth.  She is constantly rolling over from her back to her belly, and tries very hard to crawl away.  She is getting more and more giggly, which is the cutest thing in the entire world.  She'll smile if you smile, and lifting her up above your head like an airplane is almost sure to get a laugh out of her.  She's super drool-y, a little violent with her hands (and claws), and very sweet.

Happy four months, baber! :) We love you.

Ellie took the photo shoot into her own hands and decided she wanted this pose, instead...

We have a fun weekend ahead with Country Fest on Saturday and our last pool session of the season (tears!!) on Sunday.  Hope you all have a great weekend!  It's supposed to be a beautiful one! :)
