Today is Teya's four month birthday. I haven't documented that many milestones in this little one's life. It's been a busy four months. She hasn't been to her check up yet so I'll update with those stats. But, as far as I can tell she's growing in length a lot and a little in weight. She weighs roughly 13 lbs. and is 24 in, on the average side. Everyone thinks she's bigger because she's got the cheeks and chubby thighs. But we'll see what the real stats are next week.
Teya has been such a joy to have in our family. She is a pretty calm baby, except when she sees her favorite things: kids, water, and my nursing cover. Ha! We tried out rice cereal this past week and after the second time, she got the hang of it and loved it. You could tell she thought she was a big girl, eating her big kid cereal with the kids.
She's easily entertained and LOVES to watch her siblings run around. She loves to be a part of anything they're doing.
One of Teya's favorite things is water. She loves the bath and the pool. She figured out how to splash with her feet and any time she's in water, she happily splashes away. One of my favorite times is after her bath at night. It's just Teya and Ronell and I. She's s happy and calm and content. It's contagious. Plus, who doesn't love to snuggle with the freshly washed baby.
We're still working on sleeping through the night. She was doing 10-4 and then going back to bed until 7. We've had a few hard nights recently (still working on the cause), but she still wakes up every morning, happy and sucking on her hands.
I'm so grateful to have this calming child in our home. She makes everyone happy just to be around her.
