Sophie had her four month check up today. All went well! She now weighs 14 lbs, 15 oz and is 25 inches long! She has officially doubled her birth weight. At her two month appointment, she was 11 lbs, 13 oz and 22 3/4 inches long. She is growing like a little weed! She's still in the 75th percentile for height and weight and 50th percentile for head circumference (she's at 41 cm now, at 2 months, her head was 38 1/2 cm). Everything has stayed consistent. She was so good and happy during the appointment, even smiling a lot at the doctor. And then, they gave her the shots. Poor baby! I will never forget that look of shock on her little face after the first stick! It's just so pitiful!! She did handle it like a champ, though. After some comforting, we loaded up and she was asleep in her car seat within just a couple of minutes. We were out and about for most of the afternoon, but I think it was starting to bother her more this evening. No fever, though, so that's a positive.
It's just amazing to me how quickly she is growing. She's so fun right now - laughing, giggling, rolling, and jumping. She's learning so much from day to day. She has learned that when you pull on the little doodlebug that hangs on her car seat, he shakes a little. She knows when mommy is here and when she is not. She is starting to have more of a reaction to me when I come in from work. When I came home earlier this week, she was sitting on Danny's lap, perfectly content and I walked in and said "hellooooo." Her little arms and legs started flailing...absolutely made my heart melt.
Morning times are still my absolute favorite time of the day with her. She loves to eat her bottle and then just snuggle with me. We sit together and she babbles away, looking up at me and grinning. I know that we will miss these moments, so I'm really trying to savor all of the wonderful things about having such a wonderful little girl. Soon enough, she'll be crawling all over the place, so I'll be sure to hold on to her as much as I can until then.
