4 Months

Avery is 4 months old today! GEEZ!
She is getting so big! I feel like I say that all the time, but it's so true.
She is now 26 inches long and right at 15 lbs. This puts her in the 90th percentile for height and 75th for weight.
We have her check up on Monday so we will get her official measurements, but I wanted to do them today since it's her actual birthday.
Her personality is really developing, too. She loves to let out loud screams just to hear her own voice, then giggles, thinking it's hilarious that she can scream that loud.
She's really getting into her toys. Her current favorites are her Links and Leap Frog Caterpillar. She will entertain herself in her Baby Einstein Entertainer for long stretches of time now. It's wonderful!
I know it sounds early but she recognizes and loves her "blanky." She grabs at it while its hanging on the rocking chair and fusses till i put it on her during nap time. I love that she is recognizing things so much now!
Yes, my 4 month old child has long enough hair for a ponytail! I never know what to do with her hair cuz it's short on the sides since she lost it early on and long on top. She had a Mohawk after I took out the ponytail, lol. Also, you may be wondering where I got a child with strawberry blonde hair... your guess is as good as mine! I think its so pretty though. In the sunlight she has lots of blonde highlights.
She can sit up now, but she needs help with her balance. I think she will be sitting on her own very soon. Rolling over should be soon, too. She's done it a few times, but not consistently. She loves to stand and prefers that to sitting, but it wears my arms out!
I love my growing baby. It is the most fun I have ever had, watching her grow and change every day.
