meredith at four months

November 20, 2011


>Weighs 15 pounds, 3 ounces and is 25 inches long (near the 75th percentile for both)!

>Could fill a lake with all her drool (this is my least favorite part of babies I think).

>Looooves her hands, especially when they’re in her mouth.

>Also loves being naked, and is starting to actively resist a new diaper.

>Is interested in toys now! She reaches for them and stuffs them in her mouth and hugs them. So cute.

>Smiles unfailingly when we hold her up to the mirror next to our faces.

>Had her first real sickness requiring a doctor visit and time home from daycare. It was bronchiolitis and it was not fun for any of us.

>Will actually take a pacifier now, sometimes, which was a big help while she was sick.

>Does this whine/grunt hybrid thing when she’s feeling particularly needy, and it’s pretty annoying except that she’s still super cute while doing it.

>Has hair like a horse’s mane or a rooster.

>Wakes up earlier than she used to, around 5-6 a.m. She squirms, blinks her eyes, stares, and then smiles hugely when she sees me.


>Have been feeling weirdly disconnected from Meredith lately and I don’t like it! Thankfully we have the long weekend coming up for Thanksgiving to spend time together.

>Heard her laugh a few times (best thing EVER), and saw her roll over once, front to back!

>Really need to go clothes shopping because it doesn’t look like I’ll be fitting into my old wardrobe anytime soon.

>Got all excited to start running with Meredith in the jogging stroller, but then realized that by the time I get home from work now, it’s already dark outside.

>Have been in the mood to finally decorate our bedroom, but don’t have the time or money.

>Love mornings with Meredith most of all, even on work days.

>Am really looking forward to the holidays with her around.
