Leah- 4 Months ( A bit late)

Age: Four Months
: 14lbs
Length: 26.5 in
Size: 3 months and 3-6 months

Teeth: none poking through, but lots of drooling and gnawing
Hair: Still has lots...I swear the color changes daily- blond, brown, slightly red WHO KNOWS!
Sleeping: Is our downfall. She is so inconsistent. Earlier this month we worked on learning to self soothe and cry it out a bit. The first days were rough because she cried for a long time, but it got better and she was sleeping longer stretches. But slowly she has creeped back into waking up every 2-3 hours at night. She goes to bed fine, but it was waking up and the ONLY thing that calms her is to nurse. We have let her cry it out in the middle of the night, but 2 hours later it is just easier to nurse her. Taking 3-4 45 min cat naps.
Movement: Very active still. Has mastered bringing toys to her mouth this month, so now everything goes into her mouth. Holding her own binki, developing some of those fine motor skills. Legs are getting stronger. Still rolling from belly to back
Milestones: Talking, bringing things to her mouth
Favorite Toys: Books..loves books! Likes this "baby paper" that makes noise. Finally sitting in bouncy seat.
Dislikes: Getting a tiny bit better in car...still fussy. Doesn't like being put down or interrupted eating sessions
Words/sounds: Lots of coos and talking. Carries on a "conversation" with you!

Her new face with her new sound
