Violet at Four Months

Monday, March 21, 2016

I can't believe it's taken me this long to do Violet's four month post. She was four months old on March 11, ten days ago. Just goes to show how crazy busy this girl keeps me. I've been trying to get her on a feeding and nap schedule, which has been a lot harder than I anticipated. Some days she'll nap an hour, others only a half an hour, which throws everything off. We've had a bedtime and bedtime routine established for quite some time now, which has been working great, but for some reason a daily schedule has been difficult. We do have a bit of a routine (awake for two hours, nap, eat, repeat) but the times never really line up. More important than a set schedule for me is just following her natural hunger and sleepiness, so maybe that will just have to work for now.

This month, Violet:
Giggles at everything, it's the CUTEST!
Is exclusively breastfed.
Weighs 13 pounds.
Is 24.5 inches long.
Had her first fever :( it was only 101 the day after her shots, but still so sad to see her not feeling well.
Can roll belly to back and back to belly.
Will scoot in a full circle if laying on her back.
Went on her first little staycation to my dad's house in Chandler for a few nights.
Also went to the Phoenix Zoo.
Is in 3-6 month clothing and just switched to size 2 diapers.
Puts everything in her mouth: her hands, her toys, our hands!
Wakes up 1-2 times a night to eat.

As Violet grows, I really miss her being a tiny, squishy newborn. But even more than that, I love seeing her grow and her personality shine through. She's such a loving little girl, who loves attention and cuddles, which is great for Joe and I ;)
