1/3 of a year old!

Sweet little Kelynn! Happy 4 month birthday, lovey. Mommy and Daddy are so excited to report that you have changed so much this month.

First thing's first - your 4 month picture:
Although, I have to tell you, I had to take about 100 pictures to get this one shot. Your silly little self was so squirmy in that cute dress.

A few updates from the 4 month doctor appointment.

Height: 25.5 Inches (87th percentile)
Weight: 15 lbs (77th percentile)
Head Circumference: 43.2 cm (100th percentile)(yikes!)

You are becoming so smiley and funny. You love to look at us from across the room and smile real big to get our attention.

 You are getting to be such a great eater! You are now eating 6.5 - 7 oz bottles every 3 hours. You like to try and hold them on your own. When they're almost empty, you can do it sometimes!
We also have started giving you (slighly more) solid foods! You love your rice cereal, and have learned how to gobble it right up! You eat about a tablespoon of rice cereal once a day. 

 Also, you've developed this super cute habit of rubbing your feet together when you eat, or when you're relaxed.
You also have started to like to snuggle with your Lovies (as we call them), while you're falling asleep for a nap or for overnight. 

 Your new favorite chair is the bumbo. You sit in it for 20 to 30 minutes at a time, playing with your toys.
As you can see, we also have to have you wear a bib most of the time because you are SO drooly! It appears that we're not too far off from the teething phase! As a matter of fact, you love to chew on your Daddy's fingers. 

You are becoming so alert, you love to look around and smile at things you think are funny. 
Because you're getting so big, we've started being able to take you lots of new places! Now when we eat at restaurants, you love to sit at the table with Mom or Dad. 

And this weekend, we got to go to Michigan to spend Labor day with the Zuverink family! You were such a great traveller! You slept through most of the flights completely!

And when you weren't sleeping, you were pretty happy to sprawl out in the seats at the airport.

You even got to meet your cousin Aiden for the first time! 

Bath time is still one of your favorite things to do. 
You are now sleeping from 8pm to 7 in the morning. You take a nap at 8:30am, 11:30am, 2:30pm and 5:30pm. Mommy is working about 25 hours/week, and you love to go to miss Allison's house to hang out with Ashlynn in the afternoons while mom and dad work. 

Favorite thing to eat: Rice cereal
Favorite activity: Sitting in the Bumbo or riding around the house doing chores with mom and dad. 
Favorite book: Baby Baa Baa (Who's behind the red watering can? Fuzzy Duckling! She has an orange beak)
Favorite Song: Bathtime song (Who loves bathtime? Kelynn does! Doo dah! Doo dah!)

Can't wait to see what the next few months will bring! God is so good to us!
