I am so confused by this whole week/month age thing. Last week Rowan technically turned 4 months (Sept. 12th to Jan. 12th) but as far as weeks go- she has been alive 18 weeks. Which when you think about it- one would think is more than 4 months. So which is it? What is it that you say? Someone please fill me in.
We had our 4 month appointment last week. She got a couple shots in her legs and got checked all over. She is our little growing machine. Growin’ Rowan as we like to call her. She weighted 15lbs 11oz. which put her in the 90% and her height put her in the 95%. haha. She is so tall. She hardly fits length wise in any of her 3 month clothes anymore. haha. But then again she looks ridiculous in 6m ones because they are too big. Doh!
I feel like in the last week she has learned so much! She can almost roll over from her back to her belly now. She twists all around on her play mat so she can reach for toys she likes. We had her in bed the other morning with us and she dropped Sophie down beside her. She couldn’t reach it anymore and we watched her figure out how she could move her body and arm together to flip and pull the sheet so the toy would comes closer to her. It was amazing. She was learning right before our eyes.
She also has learned her first game. She does this thing now when you hold her, she holds her hand out to you and she wants you to pretend to eat her fingers. She gets so excited when you do it. haha. It’s so cute. She just keeps putting her hand out for you to do it again and again. She loves it.
We still swaddle her when she sleeps (naps and at bedtime). How long did you use a swaddle? We use the velcro kind, so I don’t know when its time to stop swaddling because she can’t break out of it. I am afraid to not use it though. I know she wont sleep as good. She sleeps so good for us and I am a little scared to give that up. How did you ween off the swaddle?
We also get to start feeding her Rice cereal!! So excited!! We will be sure to document it. I know it will be hilarious.
