4 Months Old!

Another month, and Molly is amazing us more and more each day! She is growing up so fast and really starting to interact which is so much fun!!

I have already blogged about one of her big firsts in her 4th month - her first road trip! The other big thing this month was starting to sleep through the night. Her first night doing so was April 30th. She slept 10pm - 7am. That has been very nice for Mommy, so that she isn't as tired :) We still have a few nights here and there where we don't make it the whole night or we are restless, but for the most part, Molly is doing great! She is pretty tired when she gets home from daycare, and crashes around 7pm, but then we just wake her back up around 9:30 or 10pm, change her, and feed her, and she is down for the night. In a way I hate waking her, but I know a full night of sleep is good for all of us.

Now that we are already into our 5th month, Molly is changing more and more. I don't want to spoil too much for next month's blog update, but we are starting to roll over, eat solids and do our first overnight sleepovers away from Mommy and Daddy!

Molly went to the doctor on her 4 month birthday - 05/27/11. She weighed in at 14 lbs, 12 oz (75th percentile) and was 25 1/4 inches long (90th percentile). She got a few more shots, but did great! Of course she cried, but once Daddy picked her up and comforted her, she was all good :) She really is a daddy's girl already :)

She continues to explore her mouth by sticking everything in it! She especially loves to eat her bibs, clothes, and crinkle book :) In some ways she appears to be showing early signs of teething, but the pediatrician said everything looked great, and since there is nothing you really can do anyway, just let her chew on her hands, and work it out.

She is really holding her head up well now. Mommy picked her up from daycare on May 16th to find her sitting in a bumbo seat! I didn't realize she was ready for that, but of course had to come home and get ours out of the box and give it a try that same night :) She loves to sit in it and watch Mommy and Daddy do things around the house. We also put the tray on it so she can play with some of her toys.

Molly helped her Maw-Maw ring in another birthday - the big 70 this year on May 15th. And then Mommy's 32nd on the 17th.

We can't wait to see what the next month brings, and all the new changes that will occur :)
