4 months

Holy cow! Reesey is 4 months! That is so hard for me to believe. Not because the time has flown by, but that she's only 4 months. I feel like she has been a part of our family for YEARS! Then at the same point I think, she's only 4 months and growing so fast. She's not my tiny little baby anymore.  Which is funny, because when strangers see her and ask how old she is, they always say, "She's so tiny." Well, she's not really, not if you knew her way back when. Which always leads me to the thought, do I over share? Do I tell them she was a preemie and REALLY she's only 2 months? I feel like I should because she isn't doing things that a normal 4 month old does, like hold her head up. She's still a bobble head. But really, strangers don't care.

Lucy is checking to make sure Reesey is ok.

Weight - 11 lbs. 10 oz (11th percentile for a 4 mo old)
Length - 24 inches (41st percentile)
Head circumference -  (5th percentile)

Sleep - She goes down for the night between 9:00pm - 10:00 pm and sleeps until 5:30am - 7:00am. She's awake for a little over an hour after each feeding and naps for about an hour & half.

She had a wild night

Eat - Reese is up to 7 oz still every 3 hours

Temperment - Still feisty! She is a very happy girl though... just don't mess with her beauty sleep


Likes/Dislikes - Reese loves a bath and being naked. She also loves her mobile & gets the biggest smile when he sees someone turn it on. She likes to be sung to & to look at herself in the mirror. 
She dislikes being hungry, alone and tummy time. 

Nicknames - Peesey (Me), Peanut (Brian), Reesey (everyone)

Clothes size -3 months

Language - She's a coo-er! She'll tell you all her woes if you ask her. She also "eh's" a lot.

Physical - Reese can almost hold her head up consistently. She is still quite wobbly though. She likes to suck on her fist when she finds it. Reese rolls over from belly to back.

I heart the headband. 

The extra tummy time has helped! Look at that form!

Enough with tummy time...

time to roll over!


Leaving the happiest place on Earth... Target.
Jaxon was "gently" holding her hand

Love all your updates!! I say attach a sign to Reese with all her info printed on it and if people are interested enough they can just read and know all about her preemie-ness. Just a suggestion!
