Our little one is 4 months old! It's crazy how fast times goes now that we have Wren. Before the adoption, time just dragged and I couldn't wait to be a mom. Now time is whizzing by and I want it to slow down a little! I don't want my baby getting any bigger but I am glad she is growing on track!
WREN DANIELLE 4 MONTHS
HAPPY BABY! "MOM WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!?"
Wren has continued sleeping through the night which is a huge blessing! She has had a cold the last few weeks though so she has been waking up more during the night because she is coughing or spitting her pacifier out because her nose is stuffy. She usually goes right back to sleep once she stops coughing or I give her the pacifier back so that is nice. It will be nice when she can get over this cold. I am not looking forward to more winter colds :( She still sleeps in our room in her rock and play. I told Jesse we should move her to her room but he just wouldn't let me. Maybe by 6 months we can get her in her room! We will see. She has a very protective daddy :) I have been trying to put her in her crib for naps some so she can get used to sleeping in a crib for when we move her.
Wren has been getting bigger and bigger! Unfortunately I don't know exactly how much she gained over the last month because we didn't go to the doctor last month. She just had her 4 month check up and she weighed 15.1 lb. and is 25 inches long. She is in the 71st percentile for weight and 77th percentile for height! So yes she is definitely growing! Her head is only in the 35th percentile though which seems crazy. She doesn't look like she has a huge head but definitely not a small head either. I think because her face is so round it makes her head look bigger than it is. Everything checked out healthy and Wren's cold is pretty minor and should go away on it's own. She hasn't had a temp from it and its only in her sinus not her chest so she didn't need any medicine for it. She had to get her 4 month shots which wasn't fun but after a fussy afternoon she is back to her normal self!
Wren was on target developmentally for age 4 months when we checked a list at the doctor. She is able to lift her head when she lays on her stomach although she still doesn't enjoy being on her stomach. She squeals and giggles when we interact with her. She loves toys and now developed and interest in books also. She loves to put everything in her mouth if she can get it there without dropping it. She hasn't rolled over yet but hopefully if we give her more tummy time she will soon learn. Lots of drooling has now began as well.
Wren is getting some long blond strands of hair on the top of her head but not very noticeable. She definitely doesn't have thick hair but maybe one day, we will see.
Wren has continued to squeal loud and long!! She doesn't care where we are if she wants to squeal she will squeal! It's cute but not always convenient when she decides to squeal in church or out in public and everyone is looking at us :) She did quit squealing for a few weeks when her cold was bad but the day she found her voice again she squealed all day long! She started squealing before she even opened her eyes in the morning and was squealing when we put her to bed that night! It's fun to see her happy though so as long as they are happy squeals we can handle it!
THINGS WREN LOVES
Wren loves her toys and now books as well! She will sit and kick her feet when we read books to her. She still loves her bath as well. Wren's favorite spot is probably her swing but we are trying to avoid it somewhat because she is getting a flat head in the back.
|Loving all my toys!!|
THINGS WREN HATES
TUMMY TIME!!! She just hates it. She usually just lays there a little while then gives up and screams and screams until we pick her up. We are working on her tummy time and just sitting up in the Bumbo and other places because her head is so flat in the back. The doctor said at 9 months the head won't change shape anymore so we have 5 months to get rid of her flat head :) At least she is a girl so her hair will one day cover it if it doesn't go away!
