4 Months

My beautiful Bailey Lynn is now 4 months old. These last 4 months have gone so fast, I think with each kid time goes quicker. I am not one to say slow the time down. I am enjoying it all and look forward to all the milestones each of my kids reach and will reach. She is sweet, happy, smiley, giggly, and beautiful. We have loved having 3 kids more than we thought we would. *Don't judge us, we have 3 and our oldest will be 4 years old next month....it can be challenging at times with 3 so young.* She is a perfect balance, she has days where she is easy peasy and other days where she can be a little more demanding, but the demanding times are easy to handle because I know they won't stick around and she'll be easy again. I was complaining about Baileys (what seemed to be) patterned behavior during a specific time frame each day to my sister a while back and she said it was normal and a stage, and that now I have had them all..."one hard, one easy, and one typical." And my sister was right, what I thought she would turn into a bad habit, ended up being a stage and lasting only a few weeks.

I am grateful for this typical baby.

Yesterday we went to the dr. for her 4 month well check. Here's her stats:

Weight: 12.8 lbs  (25th %)
Length: 23 3/4 in. (25th %)
Head Circum.: 40 1/4 cm (25th %)

This may seem small, but my other kids were smaller. She is consistent with her weight and growth, and most excitedly: we get to introduce rice cereal tonight.

Aww, her grin in that last picture is sooo cute. I'm glad she grew out of that nightly whininess. Jared has that now...

I'm willing to bet Jared is bigger than Bailey by the time he's two months old. What do you think?

What a cutie! She is such a beautiful baby and I love her sweet smile! Have 3 little ones so close together can be VERY hard but definately worth every crazy minute of it.
