Lucy Mae: 4 Months


This is such a fun age for Miss Lucy Mae! She is so interactive and happy most of the time. She is getting so good at holding onto things and putting them in her mouth. She loves to snuggle with Mom and Dad as well as some of her stuffed animals like Peaches, Jerry and Rapunzel. Lucy loves her daddy, especially when they play helicopter.

Lucy has rolled over a few times! Mostly from back to stomach then from stomach to back. But she only will do it if the TV is on, specifically the Olympics. She is the slowest roller in the history of the world; it's more of a progression than a roll. But she prefers to get to where she wants to be by simply wiggling. She can spin herself a full 360 degrees on her blanket if she starts out far enough away from the coffee table. She also has started to be able to pull apart her play mat. She can lift the bar out of it's holder, so she might be too big for that anymore!

Lucy has great head control, likes to sit up on our laps and likes to observe what's going on around her. Her favorite things are her fists; they're constantly in her mouth. And Lucy holds the world record for the amount of drool that can come out of one's mouth I believe. She is constantly wearing a  wet shirt and has wet sleeves.

At her 4 month appointment she weighed 15 lbs 11.5 oz (gained 3 lbs 1.5 oz since December) and was in the 80th percentile. For height she's in the 90th percentile at 25.75" (which is 2 inches longer since December) and her head is 41 cm which is in the 70th percentile range.

Lucy Mae is definitely growing up and getting so big! She went through her 4 month sleep regression and it was rough on the whole family. But she seems to be doing better and will only occasionally wake up once or twice a week in the middle of the night and mostly just needs her binky put back in her mouth.

Lucy's Favorites:

  • Diaper changes
  • Wiggling
  • O-Ball
  • Snuggling
  • Listening to Mom practice the ukulele

Lucy's Not-So-Favorites:

  • Having her bottle run out
  • Being cold
  • Being alone

Things I Don't Want to Forget:

  • The way she talks in the morning before getting up (along with her big, gummy smile when I get her out of her crib).
  • The way she calms down and SMILES as soon as you lay her down to change her diaper.
  • The way her arms stick straight out and are stiff while she's in the bathtub. 
  • How she likes to be completely spread eagle when she's playing on the ground.
  • How she arches her back to see the TV or the books on her changing table.
  • Her cute laugh!

Milestones:

  • 1/30 First (real) time rolling over from tummy to back
  • 2/3 First real laugh
  • 2/5 Grabbed toes
  • 2/10 Rolled over from back to tummy (multiple times!)
