4 months

I can't believe it's November! I can't believe we have a four month old because around this time last year I found out I was pregnant! Here is a throw back!

Time is just racing by and Tinley is changing with each new day.

Communicating:When Tinley first arrived it was a guessing game most of the time trying to figure out what she needed (especially since I'm a FTM), now however I feel as though she has little cues that tip me off. She rubs her eyes when she is tired (I know this sounds obvious but she didn't always do this), she makes weird noises when she needs changed and she turns her head to my chest in a more pronounced way when she is hungry. All new ways of communicating for my little one that I am so grateful to see!

Development: Tinley has also found her feet and loves to play with them, its the cutest thing ever to me!

Toys: She has become captivated with her little bunny rattle blanket toy that has no name. Suggestions welcome! Im thinking all the different textures intrigue her. She enjoys putting it up to her mouth and has started using her mouth to figure out what things are.

Sleeping: She takes about two to three 1 hour naps a day. She goes to bed around 9p.m. and sleeps until about 8:30 a.m. usually waking up once at 5 a.m. to nurse. We just now started swaddling her because she keeps scratching her face.

Clothes: Currently wearing 3 to 6 months and 6 months for the most part. She can wear some 6-9 month and 9 month clothing so pretty much right on track. Here are some of her current fashions.

Stats: Height- 26" (90th percentile) Weight- 15 lbs 6oz (80th percentile) Head circumference is 75th percentile
