4 Months Old!!

Our beautiful little girl is 4 months old today!! I can't believe how big she is getting. We went to the doctor today and here are her stats:
Weight: 12 lbs 12 oz (50th percentile)
Length: 25" (75th percentile)
Head: 16" (49th percentile)
The doctor said she is growing very well. He was surprised at some of the things she can do already like roll on her tummy from her back, grab objects so fast, braces her body quickly in reaction to being turned over, and he says he can see teeth forming although he doesn't know when they'll come in. She had two more shots today which sucked again but like last time, she calmed right down after I picked her up and even smiled at the nurse who poked her through her tears.

Kennedy is seriously such a happy baby. Every once in a while she'll get fussy or gassy or something and cry and scream but it doesn't happen very often. Here are some of the things she's doing now:

She's obsessed with me. She watches me no matter what I'm doing. She won't pay attention to other people if I'm around. And just recently in the last couple days, she's started to get mad if other people are holding her instead of me... that's bad. But, nothing deters her from watching her mommy, not even when she flips her bib in her face

She's a little cuddle bug. She loves to cuddle her burp rag or stuffed animals we give her.

She's discovered she has toes and tries to eat them. It's freaking adorable.



She also tries to help us out and hold her bottle. She grabs it when it's in her mouth but she hasn't figured out the technique yet.

 She's reaching and grabbing things now. She almost doesn't have to think about it anymore. She loves her bouncer and her floor gym. I tried to get a picture of her grabbing stuff but I wasn't able to. I just have one of her reaching
And her floor gym is her best friend! It plays really fun music and she kicks and squeals with excitement when I put her under it. I thought this picture of her with it was cute

She's progressing very well during tummy time.




Some other things she's doing that don't have cute pictures are:

Laughing. It's the best part of my day!!

She loves being sung to. She grins and coos at me when I sing to her.

Loves playing with herself in the mirror. She'll smile and talk to herself and sometimes laugh.

Really pulling my hair.

Demands attention when she's bored.

Tries to sit up on her own. She loves trying in her car seat.

And now for your viewing pleasure, quite possibly the cutest pictures I have taken of her so far:





And yes, her hair is out of control, and yes, I know she looks just like Cory.

Ha ha. She's keeping a close eye on you Megan. You won't be able to get away with anything! Reminds me of Aysia the way she likes to cuddle things. She will even cuddle my dress as a blanket if she doesn't have one to snuggle with as she is sucking on her fingers. :)
