Alice @ 4 Months Old

I'll start with Alice's four month stats:

Height: 26.5"
Weight: 17lbs 15oz
Head Circumference: 42.5cm

We love you, Alice.  You are such a hoot.  You are big, sweet, funny, cute, cuddly, alert, and... well, just the sweetest baby we've had around here in a while ;)

Did I mention big?  Just like her sister, Alice is proving to be an off-the-charter for both weight and height.  It's the comment we hear most about our dear girl, that's for sure.

Alice is rolling from back to tummy a lot these days.  She hasn't mastered rolling the other direction yet, which is pretty much the most frustrating thing in the world for the poor girl.  She rolls to her tummy and then gets SO PISSED OFF that she can't get back to her back.  We try to tell her that she shouldn't roll to her tummy if she doesn't want to end up on her tummy, but the child just doesn't listen!

Recent favorite hobbies include: grabbing, gnawing, grabbing things, putting things in her mouth, sucking on things, biting down really hard on things she puts into her mouth (including your knuckle, so watch yourself!), rolling to her tummy and then getting really mad about it (see above), laughing at her sister, nursing a lot, sleeping more than her sister ever did, being adorbz.

Sleep: Sleep is okay, actually.  I told a friend the other day that I haven't felt sleep deprived since Alice was born and after the words left my mouth I realized how awesome that is.  She's sleeping as should be expected of a baby her age, in my opinion, so really what more can I ask?  She's waking up a couple times per night, sometimes more and sometimes less.  But, thanks to our sleeping arrangement, I don't really lose much sleep when she wakes up and needs to nurse (cosleeping FTW!).  She's napping throughout the day whenever she needs it, but I don't have any set "nap schedule" or anything.  It's freeing, really, and as long as she's happy and rested, I'll go with it!
