Giana Carson...4 month checkup
Giana you had your 4 month checkup yesterday, the 10th. You're actually 10 days shy of 5 months, but this just happened to be when your 4 mo. checkup was scheduled.
Stats for you sweet girl:
Height- 24.5 inches
Head C- 16 inches
You are growing everyday sweetness!
You had to have the dreadful vaccines yesterday. I always feel so sad and bad, because you wake up smiling, you go in to the doctor smiling, you simply have NO idea what is to come :(. I let daddy stand with you yesterday while it happened. It just saddened me waaay to much. But I came to the rescue as soon as the tears began. I wrapped you up and cuddled you until you stopped crying that most pitiful cry.
All in all your checkup went very well. We even had a little debate while we were in there....ear's pierced or no ear's pierced, lol. We didn't pierce them just yet, because that would have been too hard on you (or ME) to do it to you yesterday. But I guess at some point we will, because for some odd reason, it is your DAD that wants you to get them pierced so badly!!! And since they now pierce them at the doctor's office and use earrings that are made of medical plastic, I think I will most likely cave and have it done within the next couple of months. It will look so darling on you!
What are you doing these days Gia bug???
You sleep all night! From around 10am to 6:30-7:00 am. You take a bottle then go back to sleep until around 9am. Yes ma'am we get some nice sleep around here!
You roll from front to back. Some days you're okay with tummy time, some days not so much. But you hold your head up perfectly. Strong baby girl!
You take 6oz. every 3 hours and have one bowl of oatmeal everyday. Getting ready to introduce some different baby foods very soon (EXCITING!!!).
You wear a size 1-2 diaper, mainly 3-6 month clothing, but still some 0-3months.
You spit up a little more than I would like for you too. We change your clothes often for this reason. But it doesn't seem to phase you at all, that's the good part.
I often tell you I should have named you "Juliana" and called you "Julie". Why? So I could call you "Druly Julie!" you can soak a bib with slobber in no time flat, lol!
You LOVE to chew on your hands and NOW your feet too! It's precious to see you rolled up in a little ball with your feet at your mouth.
You like to keep your hands on the bottle when I feed you. I think you'll be holding your bottle before you know it! Your sweet brother always just laid back and let me do all the work, but you are gonna be a helper. :)
You like to blow bubbles and make sweet little noises with your mouth. And you also like to squeal and coo. I do, however, think you are a little more quiet than Gav was. But I honestly believe it's because he makes so much noise now, that you are completely entertained by him, so you don't say that much.
You LOVE your jumperoo and it's the most precious thing to watch you jumping in it! You'll sit in there for around an hour at a time, which is a big help to momma!
You take two good naps a day. One in the morning for up to 2 hours. And one in the afternoon for about the same amount of time. Sometimes you take catnaps in between the bigger ones.
I always rock you to sleep and sing to you for your morning nap and it puts you out every time. You nap in your crib, but still sleep in your playyard in our room at night.
I love to hold you, to rock you, to cuddle you, to kiss you. I usually have a hard time putting you down. You're just so cuddly right now and such a blessing from above! My cup truly runneth over with you, your brother, and your daddy. And I thank God daily for choosing all of you to be mine.
You are sweet. Just so solemn and sweet. Laid back, a VERY VERY GOOD baby. You rarely cry. Only when you're hungry or sleepy, but usually not even then. You get a little fussy, I give you what you need, and no tears :).
You watch and observe everything, taking it all in. You love to have someone near you, they don't have to hold you, or even talk to you. As long as you can see me, daddy, Gav, nana, or papaw...you are content.
We love you soo very much our sweet little flower. Don't know what our world would be like without you in it. You (and your brother) are BAR NONE the most amazing, awesome, wonderful thing that have ever happened to us! We love you too the moon and back baby girl...more than all the stars in the sky! Our beautiful, smart little princess, so thankful that you are a part of our family!
