Maesyn is 4 Months Old!!!

Your sister at 4 months old

Maesyn Sidney Doss...  You are 4 months old!!!

Weight:  15.6 lbs. - 75th percentile

Height: Not sure...we will have to wait to get you measured Thursday at your 4 month appointment. (So you measured 24.75 inches! 75th percentile)

Eating: 4 ounces every 2-3 hours. You take around 6 oz. in the middle of the night...we have been putting rice cereal in your night bottle (gasp!!!...Mommy war types...resist your urge to comment on how terrible it is for her...we're good). 

Sleeping:  You are getting into a groove at Ms. Dana's house taking about an hour nap in the morning and a 2 hour na in the afternoon and then a few cat naps in between.  You are exhausted when I pick you up and almost every night you have fallen asleep in the car on the way home and then sleep for about 20 minutes in your car seat once we get home.  I have no idea what is going on with your night time sleeping but you are all over the map girl!!!  I told your Daddy last night that I thought you were trying to kill me via sleep deprivation...you were up like 4 times in the night!!!  Not sure what was troubling you muffin...but from now on let's try and get all of your grievances worked out during business hours kay?

What you like: You still love for people to get right up close to you and talk to you.  You  love when your Daddy talks to you and calls you his Boozer girl...you smile from ear to ear.  We just put you in the jumperoo for the first time last weekend and you LOVE it!!!  And I am so surprised at how long you will play in it without getting fussy.  You will play contently for up to 30 minutes and your Daddy and I just laugh at how strong you are.  Your legs and neck and back are so solid and strong!!! You have also started attempting to hold your bottle...so funny!  You are serious about your food girl :)

What you don't like: Anyone walking away from you when you are lying on your Boppy pillow/Mommy's bed/bouncy seat etc.  Having your diaper changed at night and getting re-swaddled.  You do not care who's sleep you are disturbing...you scream to the high heavens.  Your sister never cried in the middle of the night...she would just fuss a little bit...so I can't wait to see how this personality trait develops :)  Not sure if I can handle much more diva than your sister is bringing to the party!!!

You are such a sweet and easy going baby.  You love being around people and are so curious about everything.  We could just eat you with a spoon baby girl...and can't wait to see you every morning where you greet us with the biggest smile God ever created!!!

Love you Maes,
Your Mama
