Well, I started this post back on Julianne's actual 4 month "birthday." I got as far as uploading the photos before I was interrupted by something of the up-most importance (I'm sure). Better late than never to finish it.
Julianne goes for her 4-month check up and vaccines on the 22nd, so we will have to wait until that time to see how much she has grown. For now, you will have to settle on pictures, and this Momma bragging on what Julianne has accomplished.
We are starting to see signs of spring along with some warmer temperatures, so Julianne made her first trip to the barn to see the animals.
Just after Julianne turned 3 months old, she figured out how to roll from her back to her side, but she has since figured out how to go all the way over to her belly. She now remembers how to get back to her backside from her belly; therefore, making her way off the blanket she is suppose to be laying on! I swear she is even starting to "think" about crawling, as she will kick and move her legs while on her belly! So far, she has only been successful at moving backwards.
We still have not heard those big belly laughs from our baby girl. She is ticklish under her arms and down the sides of her torso. She will just smile and squirm when you try to tickle her.
Julianne is taking after her big brother in the teeth department! She is working very hard at getting her bottom two front teeth to poke through. She has mastered bringing toys to her mouth, chewing on her fingers, as well as any blanket she can get her hands on. And, all of this, only increases the amount of drool that is produced from the sweet little angel.
She is much more stable in the bumbo seat, and she enjoys sitting in it and watching her brother and sister play. She also likes it when we put the aquarium toy mat in front of her so she can bat at the fishes.
Julianne is also finishing up her last pack of size 2 diapers, and she will begin wearing size 3 in the next day or two!
As I mentioned before, Julianne loves to return smiles, but in the last month she won't let me capture them with the camera. This is the typical face I get once the camera is within sight!
Julianne is still adored by her big brother and big sister. Reba loves to call Julianne "Shuggie Bear", and Doug and I have found Reba in Julianne's bed on more than one occasion.SwaddleMe blanket, and Julianne has returned to sleeping through the night.
Since we are on the topic of sleeping. Julianne is now going to bed around 8:30 (Dallas and Reba are typically in bed around 8 p.m.; I will then nurse Julianne one final time and then put her in bed). She sleeps until 6 am, when I wake her up to nurse before Dallas and Reba get up at 6:15) When Dallas and Reba were gone for Spring Break, Julianne slept 12+ hours!
With the warmer days, Julianne got her first ride on the lawn mower. Luckily, there were a couple guys willing to be her chauffeur!
Every once in a while, I still get to rock my baby to sleep...
