We officially have a 4 month old! How in the world did that happen so fast? We went to the doctor this morning and Natalia weighs 15 pounds 10.5 ounces, is 26 inches long and her head is about 17 inches around. She’s in the top 85 percentile (or higher) for other babies her age. How exciting!
During the third month she was also going through her 4th leap. I won’t lie and say it’s been a breeze. At time it was really tough and I was so thankful to see Pablo walk through the door in the evening. She continues to sleep through the night though, which we are very grateful for! She also learned to roll over a few weeks ago but will really only do it once or twice a day. She’ll normally bust out her moves just when I start to think that maybe she forgot how to do it and then BAM she’ll roll over. She loves to talk, especially when getting her diaper changed or when she’s relaxing in her swing. It’s so cute to hear her little voice and we love encouraging her to talk.
I am really excited for Spring to come and to be able to get out of the house more. The sun was shinning today so we went for our first walk using the stroller and her sitting like a big girl. She loved it, except when the sun was in her face but that’s okay.
As far as getting used to being a mom and a wife, I think I’m getting better at it. Dinner is actually being made more often and not as late. Sometimes I can even start dinner before Pablo gets home! She always seems to be ready to eat about the time that we’re going to sit down to eat but we quickly learned that she runs the house (and our schedule). The house work is getting done and the laundry is getting washed, so I say I’m being pretty successful.
It’s kind of crazy to think it’s almost been a year since we found out we were pregnant! Time really does fly when you’re having fun.
Happy 4 months Natalia Sofia! Mom & Dad love you so so much!
