Four Months

I know, I know.  It doesn't seem possible, but our Staley is already 4 months old.  She is growing like a weed, weighing in at 14 lbs and measuring 24.75 inches.  She is in size 2 diapers and her super-cute 3-6 month wardrobe.  She still sleeps in her co-sleeper with us at night (primarily because I'm not ready to take that step yet), but she sleeps like a champ in her crib for naps.  Social and inquisitive, Staley enjoys new people and new places.  We've learned not to expect her to sleep while we're out because she doesn't want to miss a thing.  Our happy little girl is learning and changing quickly, so we just have to hold on and enjoy the ride.

Likes:  Staley loves her Mommy and Daddy.  Hearing us and seeing us always makes her smile, and seeing her smile always makes me smile.  She's still a great eater, sleeps her 6-9 hours at a time at night, loves bath time, and enjoys clothing and diaper changes.  She still loves her play mat, ceiling fans, and her mobile.  Her current favorite toy is probably her spinning alphabet ball, although she enjoys all her rattles and musical/light-up toys.  Her favorite books include her baby books ('Baby, Baby' and 'Baby Talk') and her touch-and-feel books.  And, of course, music of any kind is always fun.

Dislikes:  Staley generally only fusses when she is hungry, tired, needs a diaper change, or is cold.

Skills:  Staley is getting so good at grabbing things and bringing them to her mouth.  She loves to taste her toys, books, clothes, her hands, our hands, and just about anything else that she can pull towards her mouth.  She can activate her cause and effect toys (as well as try to eat them) and is great at tummy time.  She can sit with only a little help from us, and is rolling from her tummy to her back pretty consistently.  Over the past few days, Staley has started to roll from her back to her side, even rolling onto her side to sleep (which is really cute.)  Feet are another fun new discovery as she is starting to grab at them.  And Staley has learned that kicking and splashing makes bath time much more fun.  With all these new skills, Staley has stopped playing 'so big'.  It was such a cute game, so hopefully she rediscovers the joy of it again soon.

Feet AND a polka-dotted skirt.  Life is good!!
