4 months

I'm a little late on this post. But here it is....
Decemeber 15, Bristol turned 4 months old. Here are her stats and what she is up to lately.

Weight - 12lbs 6 ounces 18% for her age
Height 24 inches, 44% for her age
Clothing size - 0-3 month, 3 month ( can fit into some newborn stuff)
Size diaper - size 1

What she loves.....
* chewing/sucking on her fingers
*watching the mickey mouse clubhouse show
* sleeping in her swing
* talking and cooing
* loves her mommy, has a little seperation anxiety if she isn't with me
* loves to be outside, although we don't go often because the sun is so bright and she doesn't have sunglasses
* being held! this girl wants to be held 95% of the time, makes this momma tired!
* loves loves loves bath time! since the day we brought her home she has loved taking a bath
* loves lotion massages after bathtime
* getting her ears cleaned, sounds silly, i know. but she could be screaming and the minute i clean her ears with a q-tip she stops what she is doing.
* her changing pad in her bedroom. she will kick and talk all day long laying on it
* reading books. she loves to hold the books, turn the pages ( at least tries to, haha)
* being held in the baby bjorn.

what she doesn't like so much.....
* her car seat, although, she is getting MUCH MUCH MUCH better with going in it. I don't stress out in the car when i drive anymore. I would dread putting her in the car because she would cry and cry.
* sometimes she doesn't like diaper changes, but i understand that
* when you take the bottle out of her mouth to wipe her mouth. she will squeal so loud!
* strangers. She is very weary of people she doesn't know. she has cried on several occasions when someone is holding her that she doesn't know
* tummy time. she does not like to be on her tummy
* rolling over - she really isn't interested

Bristol's milestones and tricks....
* teething - can you believe that? i can't!
* grabs her cute little feet while laying down
* has rolled over only a few times
* squeals for attention
* sucking her fingers and hands
* can grab for things in front of her or out of peoples hands
* holds her bottle
* sleeping in her crib ( HUGE MILESTONE!)
* laughing - the cutest.thing.ever!

Ok- so that's all i can think of right now. I really need to write down stuff when it happens. I always tell myself that I am going to do it and then I rarely do. oooops! Hey, I'm a full time mom, full time student.... trying to find a balance is hard :)

Bristol will be 5 months old January, 15 and I can't believe! She is almost a 1/2 year old!! Time has flown by and it's unbelievable how much they change. I want time to stand still! Brandon always says that he doesn't want her to grow up. I feel the same way but at the same time I love seeing her discover new things!

That's all for now.... have a fun weekend!
