Ruth - 4 Month Well Check

Ruth went in today for her 4 month well check and all is well!  She weighed in at 13 lbs. even, which is about the 20th percentile.  She's 24 inches long at about the 25th percentile and her head is about 40 cm for about the 30th percentile. 

She's become much more alert, active and talkative this last month.  She really likes to sit up and look at her toes and hands.  She talks a lot and let you know she's there.  She loves to play with you and stare at faces, siblings too!  She lights up when a brother or sister checks in on her!  You have to watch that Elinore, she's a bit aggressive for a baby sometimes. 

Something happened this past month though that altered our sleep habits.  We have had many less sleeping through the night moments the last few weeks.  Hopefully we'll be sleeping well again soon! 

She's getting close to outgrowing her 3 month clothes already and moving toward 6 month outfits quickly! 

She did super awesome with her vaccinations today too.  Two pokes and tears, but as soon as I picked her up, all was well again.

You Are More Than You Know

I just finished this book. It was a good read, and I think for the right person incredibly helpful and insightful.I personally don't feel like I live my life in fear or controlled by fear too often, occasionally yes, but not regularly.  (Maybe I'm in denial?!)  This books focused on overcoming fear with faith, which is an excellent message."At this juncture of my life I'm not convinced normal is an obtainable or even desirable goal, but embracing our God-given uniqueness is. In fact, it's an adventure that leads us to embracing that we are more than we know because the Lord is greater - far greater - than we can ever imagine." -Patsy Clairmont

Do you have allergies?

Every time someone has sneezed over the weekend, Elinore asks "do you have allergies?"

Clearly she's learned about allergy season somewhere and is concerned about others and their allergies now.

It's cute.

Goodbye Sleep Sack

Sine Ruthie was born she has been swaddled or in a sleep sack every night.  A couple months ago the sitter stopped it at nap time for her, but she continued here at home.  When she was much younger we tried to stop wearing it but it ended in tears and we didn't think it was worth the fight.  Last night she said NO! when I went to put it on her.  She didn't want to wear it and wasn't going to.  Today has been the same, my baby is growing up all on her own!
