At her 4 month appointment, Ruby:
is 25 inches long (83%)
weighs 14 lbs. 5 oz. (64%)
has an average head (54%)
Ruby rolled over for the first time on January 9th, and has rolled over 2 times since then.
She entertains herself for quite a long time in her jumper. I love it because it gives me a chance to get ready in the morning.
She drinks 7 or 8 oz. every 3 hours. I can hardly keep up with her! I guess we'll start introducing solids soon, which will probably help.
Ruby is super social. She smiles at anybody willing to play with her. She's now razzing, laughing and starting to say consonants (her first was ah-goo, and now she's starting the "b" sound) so playtime is even more fun.
She's growing out of clothing at an alarming rate. Every day I discover something that is too short for her.
Ruby is a total daddy's girl. She loves me when we're home together, but if Kyle's around, all she wants to do is beam at him and play with him. He is way more fun than I am! It doesn't bug me though, because it means I can get a lot done while Kyle takes care of her, plus I'm the one providing the food so I don't feel too left out.
I'm trying to get Ruby on a schedule--turns out it is trickier than I thought. Any good ideas on how to extend naps? These 45 min. naps just aren't long enough and she's still tired when she wakes up.
The shots were sad and hard, but she was fine by the time we got in the car. Brave girl. Man, I have never seen her face get so red--or heard her scream so miserably. Glad that's done for another 2 months!
