I can’t believe it’s been a month since I posted an update on our baby girl. She continues to “thrive!” I took her in for her 4-month appointment today. She has definitely grown. She is only 1 ounce shy of a whopping 18 pounds! Isaac didn’t weigh this much at 7 months. I guess we will be buying her a new car seat soon. It’s just too heavy to keep putting her in the car seat carrier. With her inside, it weighs close to 25 (very awkward) pounds. Here are the stats from Laine’s pediatrician’s appointment today:
Weight: 17 lbs. 15 oz. (> 95th percentile)
Height: 25″ (85th percentile)
Head Circumference: 16 1/2″ (80th percentile)
For the Baby Mamas, Laine’s growth is tracking right about where Henry’s was. LOL
Laine is a very happy baby. She is smiling at everyone these days and makes some very sweet, happy, chirping noises when she gets excited. She is quite a little wiggler – I have had to start belting her into the bouncy chairs so she won’t fall out. She is learning how to use her hands. It’s been adorable to watch her hold her two hands in front of her while she looks at them. This week, she successfully grabbed the mushroom on one of our bouncy seats (a feat that was momentous for Isaac and I still remember). She has been able to grasp the umbrella dangling on the other bouncy seat in order to start the music. She routinely grabs the two little “entertainers” hanging from the car seat handle as we are driving. She delights in almost everything Isaac does.
As you can see, my helper was ready to spring into action while I took pictures yesterday. Here they are playing together today:
