4 months

It is hard to believe that it has been 4 months since I was headed to the hospital, scared out of my mind.  It seems like it was just yesterday.  But at the same time it feels like we have had Tatum forever. It's strange. She had her 4 month check up yesterday.  Everything checked out fine and she had her second round of vaccines.  Oh so fun. The shots don't seem to be affecting her as much this time around, which is good.

Her 4 month stats:

11 pounds 6 ounces (3rd percentile)
24 inches long (26th percentile)
41 cm head circumference (59th percentile)

She is a little bit of a runt. Our doctor didn't seem to be too concerned about it at this point but did ask me to bring her back in about a month just for a weight check.

Facts about Tatum at 4 months:

She is still in size 0-3 months for clothes and 1-2 for diapers. She is ticklish pretty much anywhere between her waist and her chin. She prefers to sit up or stand almost all the time and will lift her head, doing a little crunch, whenever you lay her down. She has been congested off and on for several weeks so is back to sleeping in her car seat so she doesn't wake up hacking. Even so, she has gone back to waking up once a night to eat. It is kind of hard after getting used to her sleeping through the night, but we really can't complain. She likes to sit in her bumbo on the table while we eat dinner. She will tolerate tummy time for a few minutes now, instead of crying right away. She loves looking at herself in the mirror. She likes to talk a lot, but seems to always need her index finger in her mouth in order to make lots of noise. It's pretty funny.  Basically she is perfect and we love her! :)



  1. so cute! i'm sorry she's had a cough-it's always sad to have a sick baby, but at least she's still super adorable!
