The Baby Is Four Months

Darling Camille, you are four months. How did that happen? You are a third of a year old!

Look at you. ALL SASS.

In late August you got to see my friend Kerry again and meet my other friend Ashley. They just love you.

You do seem to charm so many that you meet. You are usually in very good spirits, a true happy baby, and just so funny to watch!

Sleep-wise, you were in the Miracle Blanket but that one little left leg would always make its way out and you could get your arms out too. You like having your rabbit-rabbit pacifier holder and your Ellie close by, but that may need to change now that you are getting a little more mobile. This month we experimented around with different swaddles and with having your arms swaddled out. Then no swaddle at all once you started rolling over. We tried just about anything to see if it would click. You just like waking up in the middle of the night and that's that!

At your 4 month appointment with your pediatrician, you were 15.1 lbs (66th percentile) and 25.5" long (87th percentile). How did I end up with a tall baby?

All the money I've spent on your adorable clothes, and wouldn't you know Dad's favorite outfit was your Panthers cheerleader frock.

You had your first trip to Greenville, SC, and got to hang out with your Aunt Yaya and Uncle T. We took you to the park on our way out of town. I loved showing you my sweet college town.

You also went to Folly Beach for the first time and enjoyed your first experience with the ocean. That wet sand, it sure felt different on your little feet.

You rolled over this month, which was so exciting to witness! You can go from your back to your tummy by rolling to the right. Once you mastered it, you did it over and over and over again.

You are in size 2 diapers and size 0-3 and 3-6 clothes both fitting. Getting you dressed each day is always a treat.

You love your Kick 'n Play, your rabbit-rabbit, and you sat in the Bumbo seat for the first time this past month. Not really a fan of that one yet.

Right now you're taking about 5 ounces of milk every 3 hours and nursing when you aren't at daycare. You are growing like a weed and very vocal, making all sorts of funny noises. Your dad and I like it when you wake up in the morning by making cooing sounds. We just have to laugh at those hilarious zoo noises. You sure are something else.

Love you, dear baby.

  1. Oh my she is getting so big! Where is the time going! Congrats on such a sweet little one! :)

  2. Oh she is so adorable! And her little outfits are always just precious. Happy 4 months sweet Camille!

  3. So sweet!! Happy 4 months!! She is such a cutie!!

  4. Wow Camille is growing way too fast! She's so long! It seems like just yesterday we were pregnant. I love reading her updates and hearing about her milestones. We're currently talking about switching Ariah out of her swaddle's.

  5. She's getting so big, so adorable!!!

  6. If you are looking for another sleepsuit to try out, I swear by Baby Merlin's Magic Sleepsuit. It's kind of a transitional sleepsuit for when they can't be swaddled anymore, but still need that tight comfort feeling around them in order to sleep. I've had my baby in it since about 3 months (she's 5.5 months now) and it seems to really help her sleep and also fall back to sleep if she wakes up in the middle of the night.

  7. So precious! I can't believe she's already 4 months old!

  8. Camille is such a gorgeous baby!! Like mother, like daughter :)

    You mentioned Greenville -- did you go to Furman? My younger sister is a senior there now!

    1. Kate, I sure did! Furman is such a beautiful school, do you get to visit her there often?

  9. My daughter loved her halo sleep sacks. She slept in them from 4 months old until she was 14 months old. She loved it so much I ended up making blankies out of it so she would sleep! I couldn't have her sleeping In a fleece sleep sack during a SC summer!
    My daughter was sleeping wonderfully at about 12 weeks and then she hit the 4 month mark and we had major sleep regression. It got better after a few weeks and she went back to sleeping through the night. Hang in there!

  10. She is such a beauty! And I just LOVE seeing Drake in your photos. So happy he is doing well!! <3

  11. Love her in that Panthers outfit!

  12. That Panther's cheerleader outfit is just too much!


  13. She is just SO darling! I love the sass picture, I feel like you could turn that into a funny meme for your Christmas cards.
