Four Month Well Check

Margaret went in to see Dr. Burns this morning for her four month check up.  She is perfectly in the middle on all her stats.  Weight is 13 pounds, 12 ounces making her right at 50th percentile.  She grew a lot in length (2.5 inches since her two month), making her 24.25 inches long - 40th percentile for height.

Four shots later, she wasn't quite this content.

And by "popular" I mean the one person who noticed I stopped writing while I was on maternity leave and asked that I start updating again.

So here we are.  Margaret is about to turn 4 months old and I started back at work last Monday.  I'm happy to report everyone seems to be transitioning smoothly.  Marg seems to be very happy at daycare.  She's tolerating tummy time, something she would absolutely never do for me.  And she's napping on a schedule.  Again, something I was never able to really accomplish.  So thank you very much, Tania!

Nate is every bit the 2-and-a-half-year-old boy he is.  He loves his sister but many times his love takes the shape of an arm pull, an attempt to pick her up, or his favorite, a knock on the head.  And then there are very sweet times, like when she cries and he takes her the pacifier.  He watched how we hold it, never touching the part that goes in her mouth, and he mimics us.  This morning she was upset and kept spitting it back out.  So he sat next to her and held it in.  My two little loves:

We're staying close to home these next two weeks as we gear up for a whole lot of family travel.
