Evie is 4 Months Old

Here is what Evie is up to:

Height: 24 inches (50-75th % tile)

Weight: 13 lbs 11ounces (50-75th % tile)

Sleeping: From 7 weeks until her 3 month birthday, she slept great, 9-10 hours/night.  For the last month, it has been about 5-7 hours per night.  I don’t know why, but I am not a fan.  In the last week we have gotten back to about 8 hours.  Last night was a miraculous 10 hours but the night before was terrible.  She naps about 3-4 times per day of about 1 hour each, sometimes longer.

Eating:  She is nursing 5-6 times per day, about every 3 hours during the day and I make her go at least 8 hours during the night, even if she wakes up before that.  She is still spitting up a lot.  A few weeks ago, I fed her and then handed her off to Devin and went upstairs.  I heard Devin exclaim a few times and asked when I came down if she spit up.  He answered 3 mediums and a large.  We often go through 4 outfits for Evie a day and usually 2-3 shirts for me.

Activity:  She is starting to reach for things.  She likes being on her belly (for a good ~10 min) but she has not rolled over yet.  She can hold her head level when pulled to a sit and she has started to put some weight on her legs and “stand up”.  She has been in the bumbo and jumperoo a few times.

Temperament:  She is passing out lots of smiles and giggles when the mood is right, usually just after she has eaten or when she wakes up.  She is talking up a storm.  For the most part she is content and easy going. She likes watching Jacob.   This past month she has been much more fussy and has been crying a lot more but this too seems to be easing off.  She is

Clothes:  She is wearing 3-6 month or 6 month oneies and pants and 3 month jammies and shirts.  She is wearing size 2 diapers.
