4 months old.

If November had a 31st,
My sweet girl would have turned the big 4 months old.

So, since November doesn't have a 31st,
can I still just consider Laynee to be 3 months old?
Can she stay tiny forever?

She grows physically and developmentally every second.
Its such a wonder to see,
no matter how many times we have done it,
I still always seem to be surprised at how the first year of 
life unfolds. So much happens.
I blink
and she has grown by leaps and bounds.

Laynee Blair at 4 months old:
rolls over both ways.
grabs toys.
sleeps 12 hours at night.
Is in between 3 and 4 naps a day. Most of the time, 3.
At her max she can stay awake for 1 hour and 20 minutes at a time.
blows bubbles
brings her hands together.
brings her hands to her mouth.
has no teeth, and shows no signs of teething.
has been on 3 rounds of antibiotics (sickening, I know.)
drinks 21-26 ounces per day in 5 feedings.
has a bedtime of 6:15.
Is in 3-6 month clothing.
Size 2 diapers during the day, size 3 at night.
does not take a pacifier
follows objects with her eyes.
loves to sleep in her woombie
loves the supported sitting she gets in her bumbo.
 spits up terribly.
has dealt with a few 45 minute naps
recognizes her name
focuses her eyes on faces, chandliers, fans, and toys.
Recognizes mommy - small seperation anxiety has happened twice now.
Weighs 13.7 lbs
is 24 inches tall

So thankful that this sweet baby is growing.
So sweet. So healthy. So happy.

It was one year ago today we found out she would make us a
family of 5.
Praise the Lord for sweet surprises.
Our life just would not be as full if she was not with us.
