4 Months

Averie is four months old! I can't believe it. We love this little girl so much. I can't imagine life without her. Her shots went much better this time around. She only cried for a few minutes and then she was all smiles again. Such a tough little thing.Here are her four month stats:

Weight: 13 pounds 4 ounces 40th Percentile
Height: 25 inches 77th Percentile
Head Circumference: 16.4 inches 71st Percentile

We just can't get enough of her. But can you blame us?Here are a few things she has been up to lately:
She is getting so observant. She is fascinated by everything.She has found her feet. She loves to grab hold of her big toes and try to put them in her mouth.She thinks this is hilarious.

She loves going to the pool. Even though in the picture she looks a little freaked out.She is getting so loud. She loves to screech and squeal. We love to hear her stories.
She loves her new jumperoo. She is starting to figure out how to jump and push the buttons on it.Her favorite time is bath time. Even if she is in the worst mood, she will smile during bath time. She really likes to stand up in the tub too. She feels like such a big girl!She finally rolled over for the first time a few days ago. I had her on her stomach and she was resting on her elbows. All of the sudden she just flipped herself onto her back. It scared her so bad that she started crying. It probably was a fluke. She hasn't really tried to do it again since.

She loves her daddy. I love this picture of her using Daddy's ears as handles. So cute!She does NOT like rice cereal. We decided that we were going to try it out on her birthday. She pulled some really funny faces. I'm pretty sure she gagged the entire time because she thought it was so gross. We will have to try again in a month or so.
Before the cereal. She doesn't even know what she is in for.Ew Mom, gross!She didn't cry, but she looked like she was on the verge the entire time. Poor little thing!
Averie loves to suck on her upper lip and stick her bottom lip out. It is so adorable. I have yet to get a good picture of her doing it, but this one is pretty funny.
Lately I have been having a really hard time getting a picture of her smiling. I think it has something to do with the fact that her hands are ALWAYS in her mouth. She loves to put anything and everything in her mouth. I have a feeling this is going to get worse before it gets better. I am going to have to sanitize everything.There we go! There's a smile!

Averie loves to kick her feet and swing her arms. She has always done this, but it seems like lately she is turbo charged when she does it.

Well that is all I can think of for now. Having a four month old is so fun. I love this stage. I am sure it just gets better from here, but if she never grew a day older I wouldn't mind.
