Four Months

 Sydney Deborah - You are FOUR months old!!! 

You weigh just over 13lbs 

You are wearing mostly 3-6 month clothes and some 6 month.  

You wear size 1 diaper during the day and size 2 at night.

You are a fantastic sleeper.  You sleep from 7pm to 7am.  I am SO thankful for that!  You take 2-3 naps during the day.  Sometimes you nap in the morning between your 7 and 10am bottles and usually one midmorning nap around 11:30, this one is usually in the car after the gym or running errands, and a great afternoon name from 2-4pm.  Sometimes you take a little cat nap around dinner time.  

You are the sweetest and happiest baby.  You have the cutest personality and we are seeing it more every day.  You love when anyone talks to you and pays you attention, especially your brothers.  

You love to stand up and getting better at putting weight on your legs. 

You have great head control and can sit in your bumbo though you don't like to sit in it very long.  You like your jumperoo but only for about 5 minutes.  

You have started really grabbing things.  You love to suck on your hands.  You like your paci but you are constantly grabbing at it and pulling it out.  You don't grab at your headbands or bow, thank the Lord!  My goal is that when you get a little older you won't want to leave the house without a bow! ;)

 You had your first time in the pool recently.  You loved it and just hung out in momma's arms the whole time.  Another time you tried the baby float and you liked it for a short period of time.

You eat every 3-4 hours and take around 6oz in each bottle.  You take five bottles a day.  

You have a little bunny lovey with your name on it that you love to hold.  I don't let you sleep with it but you love to hold it in your car seat and swing.  

You love to watch whatever your brothers are doing.  They LOVE to talk to you and entertain you.  You think they are pretty great!

You have not started rolling yet but I'm sure you will soon.  

You are such a sweet sweet baby and we just love you so much!  You are such a joy and delight.  We are blessed and thank God every day for you!

Boys Check ups

The boys had their 4 and 6 year old appointments in July!  It's hard to believe they are getting so big so fast.  

 Ryan is growing so well.  He is starting Kindergarten in August and he is SO ready.  He will be in school all day this year.  It's a big step.  At his six year check up he weighs 43lbs (33rd percentile) and 47 inches tall (77th percentile).  He is one tall and skinny boy.  He is super smart and loves to build and play with legos.  He is so imaginative and loves to read books.  

I can hardly believe Colton is four!  How did that happen?  He is so funny and so expressive.  Colton's speech is getting better and clearer every day.  I can understand him now 98% of the time.  He is so funny, I just love his personality.  

At his four year check up he is 31lbs (10th percentile) and 39 inches tall (11th percentile).  He is my little peanut and always has been.  He has become a little picky the last year or so but will also surprise us and eat a ton or eat a big variety.  He will be in the four year old preschool, three days a week this year.  He is excited about starting school in September. 

The boys are growing so much and are pretty crazy about their baby sister.  They tell everyone they meet about their baby Sydney.  It's pretty cute.  They are the best big brothers and shower her with kisses and love all the time.
