Four Months

Hollis Barrett - you are FOUR months old!!!

You weigh 14 lbs 8 oz (69%) and are 25.5 inches tall (89%).
(You are an inch taller and a few ounces bigger than your sister was at this age!)

You are wearing some 3-6 month clothes and some 6 month.
You wear a size 2 diaper.

You are a great sleeper. You sleep from about 8 p.m. until 7 a.m. and usually get up once between 2-3 a.m. I am SO happy and thankful with that! You take 2-3 naps a day. I'm working on hard on matching up a long nap with Harper's but other than that - we slip a few naps in in the morning and the late afternoon.

You are the sweetest, happiest baby. If anyone even looks at you - you smile the HUGEST smile I've ever seen. You love to be talked to.

You love to stand up on your legs and you are good at putting weight on them.

You have good neck control and can sit up in your bumbo now and we are about to start the exersauser.

You have started really grabbing things. You won't keep your paci in because you constantly grab it and pull it out. And I can pretty much forget you wearing headbands because you reach up and pull them off as soon as I get them on.

You are eating every 3-4 hours. I have no idea how much you eat because I never give you bottles but I'd say you are growing pretty well so you must be getting enough!

You went to your first VBS this month and spent the week in the nursery and did so well. I constantly got reports on how sweet and easy you were.

You have a little lovey that you love to hold. It's a pink giraffe with your name on it. I don't let you sleep with it but it's with you in your car seat and you always hold it tight when you sleep. It's so sweet.

You have started to try to talk and laugh. You love to watch everything your sister is doing. You think she is pretty great.

You are a rolling machine. I can't put you on the bouncy seat or anywhere high much anymore because you roll right off. I'm afraid you might be an early crawler and I'm going to do everything I can to nip that in the bud. (just kidding!) I'm not ready for you to grow up.

I love you more every day! You are a ray of sunshine in my life! I praise God every day for blessing me with you!

Growing, growing, growing! Your hair is still thick and curly but it's getting a little lighter. Your eyes are a very deep blue. I'm not sure what color they will settle at.

My two girls at four months!
