Four Months Old

Kate had her 4 month check up on Thursday. Here are her current stats:

weight: 14 pounds, 12 ounces (75th %ile)
length: 25 inches (75%ile)
health status: excellent
While Kate may be the second child, she is first when compared to her sister in many ways. At this age, Padyn was 13 pounds, 5 ounces and 23 3/4 inches long. She was still mostly a blob that lay around in her bouncy seat all day drooling and smiling. Kate does those things and many more. In fact, here's some of her current favorite actvities...
grabbing her toys in her swing
lifting her head up when she is laying on her back
rolling from her tummy to her back
giggling when you tickle her chin
cooing and making cute little baby noises
drooling and producing spit bubbles
smiling with her entire body
sucking on her hands and pacifier
trying to sit up by herself
kicking her feet nonstop
watching Padyn dance around and sing
standing up
trying to roll from her back to her stomach
hanging out in her swing
being held by Mommy
reaching for anything that she might be able to touch

She's lots of fun, my little pumpkin head.
