That sweet face – 4 months

_MG_3894

Eline at 4 months

  • Weighs a little over 12 lbs. and is outgrowing a few of her 0-3 month outfits
  • Smiles a lot more (she stares and grins at lights and brightly-lit windows!), responds enthusiastically to anyone who gets in her face, locks eye contact for extended amounts of time, and loves to be tickled and cuddled
  • Sleeps in her cradle and goes to bed for the night at 10 p.m. (with one last “dream feeding” around 11:30) and sleeps until 6:30 or 7 a.m.
  • Naps in her swing for 30 mins. to 2 hours after every feeding
  • Gets 4 1/2 oz. mixed breast milk/formula six times a day but is inconsistent in finishing the bottle and in the amount she leaks during feedings
  • Tracks objects with her eyes, grabs (and tries to chew!) lightweight toys and blankets
  • Still likes to be swaddled for sleep
  • “Talks” a lot, with a wider range of sounds, and seems to try to imitate sounds we make
  • Has made big improvements in head control and can sit propped up for short periods of time
  • Is still a generally easy-going and happy baby
