Josie’s Four Month Update
We have been a little slower to post in the past month, in case you haven’t noticed. Life with two little girls is catching up to us, and we are trying to take in every moment we can, instead of spending it connected to some electronic device. We also happen to be moving around everything in our house… at least it feels that way at times. That being said, considering how often we posted news on Anna in her first four months of life, we are probably far behind with Josephine updates.
Her four month appointment went well (although that was already two weeks ago). She is growing and eating really well, with her weight on the charts now. Smiles are a constant feature, and giggles, coos, and shrieks are getting more and more common. She particularly enjoys “dancing” and “chasing” Anna around the living room (with Mom and Dad’s help), and singing “The Grand Old Duke of York.” She has rolled over a few times this week, and I am pretty sure I discovered the start to her first tooth, which actually made me really sad. (Teeth already? What happened to my baby?!)
Weight: 11 lbs., 11 oz. (10th percentile)
Length: 23 1/4″ (25th percentile)
Head: 15″ (<3rd percentile – What?!? Definitely the opposite of her sister!)
She is still one of the happiest babies you’ll ever meet. When she cries, she wants something, and it’s usually pretty easy to make her happy again. We have not yet had to rock her for any length of time to get her to sleep, or for that matter, to even really be woken up by her in the middle of the night. She sleeps through the night and her sister wakes up before her, so we get them both up, or Josie would probably lie there and grin at the ceiling fan until fierce hunger made her finally squeak for us to come get her.
Josephine is such a joy to us. I can’t say it enough – we LOVE having two little girls who brighten up our days!
