Lydia: 4 Months

Lydia is 4 months old!

This little girl is growing up so fast. She's SO sweet and content. Lydia has discovered that she loves the taste of her hands and tends to chew on them daily. She's also trying to grab toys and just generally pays more and more attention to her surroundings.

Evan loves her and even chose to keep her when someone asked him if he wanted to give her away. He loves to hug and kiss her, play with her hands and feet, and of course talk to her.

She is back to sleeping through the night after a 3 week phase of some sort, maybe a growth spurt? We are thankful for that and pray that she continues in that pattern. She's happy when she's awake, loves to nurse, and thinks her brother and her cat are hilarious.

The challenge right now? She won't take a bottle. I'm perfectly happy nursing her but it would be nice to have the option of a bottle if needed. We've tried lots of things but if anyone has something specific that worked for them I'd love to hear it!

We are enjoying our baby girl!

Ok apparently Jovie is copying Lydia. She also will not take a bottle. I hope she decides to copy Lydia's sleep habits too! Sounds like Evan is doing great with her. I can't believe she is already 4 months. Looking forward to seeing you all this weekend.

That picture of her is adorable! She is so sweet. I have to admit I'm a bit mad at her for always crying when she hears my voice! What kinda crap is that. I love you baby girl... don't be scared... YET!
