Headband:: Ruby Blue Originals
Age :: 4 months

Length :: 24 inches

Weight :: 11 lbs 5 oz 
*She only gained 1/2 a pound in a month, which put her in the 4th percentile.  Poor girl just isn't gaining much weight.  She nurses all the time!  We go back for a weight check in a few weeks.  

Milestones :: Charlotte loves to squeal!  I'm still waiting on her deep belly baby laugh, but she giggles in her own silly way.  She still smiles all the time and is a very happy baby.   She is rolling over now from belly to back and back to belly.  She actually prefers to be on her belly most of the time.  She is holding her head up like a champ and trying to scoot!  She has definitely found her voice and once she gets going, it's hard for her to stop!  She has also started cutting her first tooth and constantly tried to grab everything in front of her.

Sleep :: She has started to regress a little and is waking a few times during the night wanting to nurse.  She is still going to bed around 8 and sleeps until 7am.  If she wakes during the night, it is usually around 1am and then again around 5am.  She is only taking about one long nap now and it's at 2pm AND it's at the same time as big sis...WIN!  She is taking about 3-4 cat naps (20-30mins long) during the day.  She no longer wants her swing and is napping in her crib too.  Last month she would only nap in her swing or on the couch.  I'm definitely not complaining about her sleep schedule!

Favorites :: Charlotte is a big fan of chewing on her hands and toes.  She has gotten pretty good at blowing bubbles too.  She loves to look in the mirror and playing with Emma.  She thinks Emma is pretty funny and it has to be the cutest thing in the world.  She still loves to to sung to  and nursing in on the top of the list.  She loves to cuddle and likes playing with her Fisher Price kick n play Piano.  She really loves her grandparents and jumping in her Fisher Price Jumperoo.

Doesn’t like :: She still does not like being in her carseat.  It's awful.  Just when we thought it was getting better, it didn't.  She does a little better when the car is moving, but we always pray we don't hit any red lights.  She doesn't like to be in her chair for very long anymore and does not like when we don't pay attention to her!  She gets really upset if she gets overly tired.

Foods:: Breastfeeding strong! We plan to start solids next month.

Firsts::  Rolled over from back to belly (14 weeks), belly to back (15 weeks), laughed (16 weeks), first birthday party (17 weeks)

Clothes:: We are finally in some 3 month clothing, but mostly 0-3.  She is  still in size 1 diapers.

Nicknames:: Char, Charlie (Emma's version of Charlotte-sounds like Sharlee), Charlie girl, pretty girl, Munchkin

Here are some pictures from this month :)
