Four Months!

Look who is four months already! Little Miss Annalyse is still the new joy in our home, with the smile we adore and the laugh we love.
This month you've started to use your hands to reach for and hold on to toys. This makes your brothers especially proud and they find great delight in yelling (almost every time), "Look Mom! Annalyse is holding a toy all by herself! What a big girl she is, huh?" And then they proceed to smother you with kisses and say they love you.

You prefer to be standing upright and seem to really enjoy your exersaucer and doorway jumper. And, once again, this has your brothers especially happy because I think that deep down they enjoy your toys more than you do.
You are still in a size two diaper and wearing 3-6 month clothes. Shoes, however, don't fit yet. Your feet are too narrow for any to stay on. But, oh my-oh my, there is a drawer full of shoes just waiting for you!

At your four-month well-visit today, you weighed 11 pounds 13 ounces (25%) and measured 25 inches (75%). This is a whopping three pounds less than your brothers were at this age. That's alright - I love my little lady staying little as long as possible!
You had two weeks of good sleeping through-the-night... and then the dreaded stuffy nose appeared and you were back to waking up once or twice. I guess I can't blame you. Not being able to blow your nose and not being able to suck a pacifier because of a congested head is hard to deal with.
You are loved and cherished and prized and adored, Annalyse Joy!
