EVR: Four months

July 31, 2011


Four months old and have you ever seen a cuter face?  Lizzy is smiling like crazy.  She even giggles here and there, and flails her arms about as her excitement bubbles over.  She is such a happy baby, despite the two teeth that have already sprouted along her lower gums.  Poor girl!  The doctor says she's a four-month-old in a six-month-old's body.  She can do it all, except sit up on her own.  Her stats show just how above average this little girl really is.  

Height:  26 inches (96%)
Weight:  16lb 8oz (95%)




  • Lizzy and Sissy nicknames seem to be sticking around.  
  • Also affectionately called Love Bug.
  • Two teeth.  Two teeth!  I'm thinking the same thing you are.  
  • First rice cereal, per doctor's request, at 4 months and 2 days.
  • Loves to swim in the pool.
  • Loves to lie in the bathtub.  Especially with her brother.  She outgrew the Puj tub, so now she lies on the Puj in the regular bathtub.  
  • Still sleeps with her left arm out of her swaddling blanket, and manages to pull out her other arm and kick her legs free.  Houdini?  
  • So, so close to rolling over.
  • Manages to kick around her crib and end up in different positions and locations.
  • Grabs and holds on to her toes.
  • Intently focuses on her hands.
  • Blonde hair coming in.
  • A few really long strands, too.
  • Oh, those blue eyes.  
  • Chub.  Big time chub.
  • Requests to be held for as many hours a day as possible.  
  • Coos and chatters all the time.  I love it.  
  • Still loves a song.
  • Everything goes in her mouth.  And Papa is a favorite because he'll always let her chew on his finger.
  • Stands up as much as possible.
  • Loves to snuggle in bed with me in the morning (a big difference from her older brother).
  • Prefers to hold a blanket up to her face when she sleeps (just like her brother).


Oh Elizabeth, I love you so.  I love you more and more all the time.  You fit in so perfectly into our family.  It's like you were here all along.  

Love you, baby girl.
