ktg: 4 months

What a month! I feel like my Katers is no longer an infant, but a roly poly baby in all her squishy goodness. 

We planned to have Kate cry it out and start the process of really sleeping through the night beginning the day she turned four months old. But about a week ago, she thought it would be hilarious to wake up all. night. long. 

So, she cried it out the next night. 
And guess what!? It worked. I no longer get up to feed her. She still will sometimes wake up, but just needs her binky or a blanket adjustment and she's good to go. We'll work on that this coming month. She still eats 4-5 times a day and will probably be ready for solids by 5 months I'm guessing.

She continued to get better at rolling from her tummy to her back. She is grasping toys with individual hands (not both hands together yet) and is altogether more alert than ever. She takes an awesome morning nap - usually 3-4 hours and is unpredictable as far as naps go for the remainder of the day. 

She killed it at her four month checkup. Everything is looking fabulous. She is getting more and more interested at the chubby figure in the mirror (not me, her!) every day and had a blast playing peek a boo in the pediatrician's mirror while she unknowingly waited for her vaccinations. She hated them, of course, but quickly forgave the mean nurse after I scooped her up.
