BD 4 months...



BD 4 Month...

All my Louisiana friends would be proud... she was born and NOLA and decided to represent appropriately :)








Monthly Milestones...

*Little boys giving her kisses... uh oh... Andrew was not happy!

*Rode in a stroller sitting up!

*Standing up bouncer!

*First of many Chic-fil-a Cow Days! We got 3 free meals even though BD couldn't eat hers...


*First time in church nursery... this is not a picture of that... she cried the whole time and slept after... hopefully this will improve!

*Sitting in high chair at a restaurant...


*SITTING UP!



Favorite Things...

*Sophie giraffe!!! Teething? Probably not, but ha just enough dexterity to get her in her mouth... most of the time!
*Still playmat... loves tummy time so much that she avoids rolling over, even though we know she can!  She has learned to scoot and change directions on it.  She also pumps her legs sometime like she wants to crawl... I think she will be a crawler!
*Bob jogging stroller... not allowed to jog yet, but she loves to ride facing out... and take naps in it.  On the 4th it was pouring down rain and she just was gazing up at the clear plastic as the rain came down... too cute!
*Despicable ME Minion... choking hazard, probably, don;t worry we are keeping a really good eye on her with it.  When she sees it, it is like she wants no other toy!
*High chair- we put toys on the tray right now.  She loves it!  Sometimes she gets frustrated because she grabs multiple toys at once, or does not quite have the dexterity to grab these rattle balls she loves.  Just a few short months and she will be eating off of it!

*Bunny lovie



*Books and Being read to

*Still loving baths



*She oves to put her mouth on the glasses we drink out of and the straws too... don't worry we aren't letting her drink yet, but think she will try soon!


*Doorway boucer


*Okay, so she doesn't really like the sunglasses... but they are so cute!

Weight...

Our scale is nowhere near accurate, but it says 18 pounds.

Height...

Pulled out the tape measure... it said 27 1/2 inches!

Clothing Size...

She is wearing mostly 6-12 month things.  If it is a dress she still fits in the 3-6 month clothing.  We are starting to have a problem with bloomers and rompers, they squeeze her thighs no matter what size they are :(.  And anything with long sleeves... the sleeves are too short... tall little girl!

Sleep Patterns...


Previous month... sleeping through the night.  I had been warned by multiple people if you have a baby that sleeps through the night early, be careful, around 3-4 months they may stop.  BD did.  We finally got a taste of a little of that sleep deprived that people with newborns talk about.  She aslo still resisted the nap this month.  So monthly summary... it was REALLY hard to get her to sleep on her own.  We keep taing her she is a happier baby when she sleeps, but we are not sure if she understands :). The last two days have been better... so we shall see! Hopefully next months report will be better!

Eating Patterns...

She is still exclusively breast fed and takes one bottle a day. This is good because she and I are going to be going to mother's morning out starting in two weeks (preplanning next week) for a couple hours a day. She will be with the 6 month olds, I will be with the 4 year olds.

Outings and Celebrations...

*Seeing Stacey in Columbia

*First 4th... rather rainy!

*Trip to Savannah

*Not a celebration, but the picture was too cute to not include...


Nicknames...

*Little Bit

*Little Chunk

*Chunky monkey

*Bailey Boo

*Bailey Bug

*Bailey, Bailey Drew (Sung to the tune of Scooby Doo)

*Spit up queen

Things others have said about you...

*"She has so much hair!"

*"She is so big!"

*"Is she secretly older?"

Things we have noticed about you...


* You are so sweet and fun, you love to play!
*You like to play independently for a while, but then you really want to play with someone!
*You are determined and persistent.

For Bailey Drew...

Little bit!!! What a month it has been.  You have changed so much... again.  We regularly look back at your pictures, starting with your newborn pictures, and see ow much you have already changed.  We can't hardly stand it.  We love your developing personality, but you change too fast.

Personally I may have been the source of some of your "sleep problems" this month.  I just always want to hold you while you sleep... and I think you liked it too.  So much so that you started to not want to sleep on your own!

It is crazy for us to watch your personality grow and bloom!  You are so fun and bring so much joy to our lives.  We continue to pray for you, that you will know the Lord and chase after Him!  Can't wait to see what the next month brings!!! :)
