Isabella turned 4 months today!
Here she is in her Sunday best and also posing her for monthly picture with her zebra. She crossed her legs on her own! So sweet! Her Sunday dress is from Macy's from her Nana and dress shoes from Room to dream from her Mimi. (I think you will see a theme of who her clothes are from!)
Month 4 was a big one as we had our first Christmas together, first NYE, first trip to Dallas, and first real laugh. She has been babbling to us more and showing lots of expressions. She has just rolled over one more time since 11 weeks, but likes being on her tummy more and is getting stronger holding her head. On a typical night she sleeps from 10-5, eats, and then sleeps around 3 more hours. But we will have nights when she wakes up 2 or 3 times to eat, sleeps much later, or goes to bed earlier...no real schedule here yet I am still just following her cues. She is still napping 3-4 times a day and I am wondering we will start loosing some of those naps. At the doctor she weighed 13.3 lbs this month, which is up 2lbs from our 2 month appointment, and was 24 1/4 inches long. She took her 4 month shots like a champ, even though those 30 second cries break our heart. I really am trying to just soak in every minute and every day- even the difficult parts. Time really is going by so fast and I don't wish any of it away right now.
I captured some of her faces on her 4 month birthday:
Everything goes in the mouth these days!
Love you sweet girl, you give us so much joy!
