4 Months

I'm so terrible at updating. My life is pretty chaotic at the moment, so that's my excuse. :)

Miss Alexandria is 4 months old. Where did the time go? No, really... how the crap is she 4 months old already? Didn't I just have her?

She's doing very well. She's such a little peanut compared to Olivia though. I took her to her 4 month well visit at the pedi's yesterday. She's weighing in at 12lbs 8oz and 23.25inches long. (although, I'm not quite sure that's accurate. All her length measurements have been off since she was born. By MY measurements she's 24")

She's smiling all day long. She's rolled over a few times but still hates tummy time. Her favorite this is probably getting a bath. She's non-stop smiles and kicking in the water. I cannot wait to take her to the pool this month. The doctor said we could try cereal, and I did yesterday. She's not ready though. She looked at me like I was an alien and just spit everything out. I'll try again in a couple weeks and see how she does.

She's still wearing mostly 3 month clothing. At this rate, we're going to have to buy all new summer clothing for her. Olivia was in 9 and 12 month for the summer and there is NO way Alex is going to grow that fast to fit into them. I think she just takes after me, whereas Olivia took after Russ (big baby).

She got her 2 shots and her oral vaccination and did alright. We had a new MA at the office and she wasn't as quick as the normal nurse with the shots, so Alex new another one was coming and screamed. She calmed down after I picked her up, but she screamed about half the ride home until she fell asleep. We got home, I fed her, and she passed OUT for 3 hours. She slept from 7pm to 6:30am this morning. I'm figuring it's from the shots. She's still been waking to eat at night. She goes to bed around 7:30-8pm, wakes at 2:30 and 6:30, and wakes up for the day around 8:30. I'll be excited when she sleeps all night long. :)

Tomorrow is her follow up ultrasound for her hip. She sees the ortho doctor as well. Maybe we can chuck the harness in the trash. We'll see.

Other than Alex news, everything else is crazy around here. Olivia is just a handful anymore. "Terrible 2's" I suppose. Tantrums, hissy fits, you name it, she does it. I also went back to work 2 weeks ago, so I'm more exhausted now. Plus, we're still on the hunt for a house. We're on a timeline, so we NEED to find something by the end of the month to make sure we have enough time for closing and moving before our lease is up in August.

It's going to be a busy couple more months. *whew*
