4 month update for Alana

Alana turned 4 months old on Christmas Day!  She had her 4 month check up yesterday and is measuring at 23 3/4 inches (17%), 12 lbs 12 oz (18%) and her head circumference is 16.5 inches (83%). It looks like she is going to be petite, but takes after her Daddy's big head!

Alana is seriously such a chill baby. She is still eating on 3 hour intervals. She typically takes a bath at 7:30 to begin the bed time routine and falls asleep at 9pm and then wakes up at 7am. She normally wakes up once to eat and goes right back to bed. She was actually sleeping longer stretches before I went back to work!  Alana is still breastfed and had a very hard time transitioning to a bottle when I went back to work. It took atleast 3 weeks for her to finally warm up to a bottle. That was definitely the most stressful time for all of us.

My baby girl is always smiling and has already rolled over a few times. She loves chewing on her hands, blowing bubbles and is super ticklish. I feel such a special bond with my baby girl. It's so funny to see how different your children's personalities can be!

We had such a great Christmas with our babies. I can't believe it was just this time last year that I found out I was pregnant with Alana. She is my greatest gift in 2016. Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year!
