Hattie - 4 Months

My sweet baby girl is 4 Months old!  She's growing up so fast!  She's really becoming an active baby girl!  At four months:

-she weighs 12 lb, 13 oz (21%)
-she is 24" long (30%)
-her head is 40.4 cm (44%)
-she eats 7 ounces every 3-4 hours
-she sleeps from around 8 or 9pm - 7 or 8 am
-she is trying her best to roll over but can't figure out how to tuck her shoulder blade in
-she loves to coo and talk to everyone
-she is definitely an attention hog..she loves for anyone and everyone to talk to her
-she still loves that paci
-she recognizes mommy, daddy and her brothers and sister and smiles so big when she sees us
-she loves to watch tv!
-she is so ticklish on her shoulders, belly and pretty much everywhere else
-has started sleeping in her crib (FINALLY!) and wakes up in a good mood, talking away instead of crying
-she has started gnawing on those hands like crazy.  She is definitely teething and loves for you to rub her gums
-she already has a few nicknames: Patty Deweeze (from her big sister, but somehow has stuck with everyone else), Weezy (from her wheeziness early on and also her middle name) and Pumpkin head.  Chris has tried to call her Spits because she spits up all the time but I refuse to let that be her nickname!

She tried out the pool and loves it!  In fact, the rocking of the pool put her to sleep one day when we were at the beach.  She still loves to snuggle in my arms which I love.  Her crib is still in our room.  Knowing she's the baby, I think me and Chris both are hesitant to let go of this phase.  We love to look in on her before we go to bed and of course I check her out as soon as I wake up in the morning.  It's crazy how she already fits into our little family and it's like she's always been there.  She's so laid back, which I'm assuming you have to be when you're the baby of four!

Flavorfy with DASANI DROPS

A while back, I saw that some people I know had received some free goodies from Influenster.  I decided to find their website and see what it was all about.  I didn't hear anything for a while after I signed up, but all of a sudden, I got an email saying I had qualified for their Flavorfy box.  I was so excited to get my box.  It finally came in this past weekend.  I received a bottle of water and two packs of Dasani Drops - the Mixed Berry and Pineapple Coconut.  They also threw in some coupons for $1.00 off when I go to buy my packs.  Believe me, I'm pretty sure I'll be using those!  These drops are so good!  My kids tried them and they like the mixed berry.  I'm kind of partial to the Pineapple Coconut.  Both of them are really light tasting and the best thing is they have zero calories...unlike most inserts you use to liven your water up! This product is definitely something I'll be using so I can try to get my water in everyday! 

**I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes**
