Happy 4 Months!!

Today sweet Kate turns 4 months old! 

That picture was actually taken yesterday when she was in her Christmas dress.  She was super fussy and wasn't up for 4 month pictures today.  This was the best she gave me today:

Here's what Kate is up to these days:
*She is almost 12 pounds (such a little bit still) - maybe she will double her birth weight this coming month!
*Still wearing size 1 diapers - Huggies Pure & Natural are the only diapers that work for her.  Everything else either gives her a rash or she pees through/ causes blow outs
*24 inches long
*She is wearing 0-3 and 3 month for regular clothing.  We are up to some 3-6 month footed sleepers for length though.
*Everything goes straight to the mouth
*She grabs for everything - toys, earrings, hair, food, dogs - you get the picture!
*She has a super deep belly laugh that is absolutely precious!  I will post a video of that sweet laugh when I figure out how...
*She is having some sleep regression lately.  We are back to a 3 or 4am bottle.  Thankfully, she will go straight back to sleep after that bottle until about 7 or 8.  Too bad I am having issues getting back to sleep.

Kate has proven that she is a tough little girl this month.  She's had 5 or 6 blood draws (taken from her arm) since November 1 and countless doctor's appointments.  I'm sure I'll get into more detail soon but, we are asking for any and all thoughts and prayers in the coming weeks as Alex and I make hard decisions regarding her care.  We are still looking for answers and praying for the best possible outcome.

As always, I can't wait to see what the next months brings!!!

What a cutie! With the sleep thing... she may be ready for solids?? Cor.ben started doing that so I put rice cereal in his last bottle of the night and he went back to sleeping through the night. Normally that's a no-no but he had already been use to that due to his reflux. Once he started solids he dropped his 5 am bottle too and now sleeps until around 8 am.

We cannot start solids right now due to her allergies.

She just gets more beautiful by the day! Happy 4 Months Kate!

Always praying...

And I feel you on not being able to go back to sleep after the boys go eat in the middle of the night. But I'm too afraid to take a tylenol PM because I fear I wouldn't hear them when they woke for the next feeding!

4! Going too fast : (
