4 months!

Christmas Pictures Posted Below

At her four months appointment, which was a couple of weeks early, Chloe weighed 13 lbs. 12 oz. I'll have to look back at her length and edit it later but she was in the 50th percentile on weight and 90th on height.

I posted this picture below for a couple of reasons. 1) It was taken on Dec. 30th, the day that Chloe turned 4 months old and 2) To show my friend Hannah that she's not the only one with a baby that's going bald. Every time I pick her up from her bed or the swing or her changing pad or wherever, there are little hairs all over it. But don't worry Hannah, it won't be long at all before you're wrestling her with a bottle of detangler.

This is a picture of Chloe (sort of) sitting up on her own. She can sit up for a few seconds. She has good balance but her lower back muscles still need a little more strength. She just bends straight over. By the time I got back to take the picture , she was already bending.

The holiday traveling messed up our routine and Chloe started waking up in the middle of the night again so I started giving her cereal before bed. I didn't start Emma on cereal until almost 6 months but she was sleeping through the night. I was surprised at how she did with it. She still pushes it out a little but all and all, she's doing well with the spoon. This morning, Chloe made it until 5:30. We'll probably leave the cereal to just at night for now.
