UPDATE: month 4

4 month baby update | gracefulmommy.com


24.5 inches (45%), 13.6 oz (28%). Doctor said she looks great! She was thrilled I am still breastfeeding Gracie. She also said not to worry about the 28th percentile because Gracie is going along her growth curve just fine. Yay Gracie!

Our routine is pretty much the same as last month. Gracie wakes up around 8:00am and eats right away. Then we play for about an hour and a half until she’s tired again. She takes a pretty good morning nap while I shower and get ready for the day. Then I feed her and we play for a while again! She has been loving being on her tummy! After we play for a while, she goes down for another nap. I usually try to clean, nap, and eat while she sleeps. Then when she wakes up, I feed her again and we either run errands, hang with family, go outside, or play more! Around 2, Gracie takes another great nap. She goes to bed around 8:30pm now. It’s nice to have some time with Dave. I feed her around 10 or 11, right before we go to sleep.


Hm… I’m not sure what happened. I’ve read about the four month sleep regression, and I think that’s going on. Gracie had been sleeping so good- like 8 hours a night! Now, she wakes up every 2-3 to feed. Usually she goes right back to sleep, which is awesome. But it’s still weird!

Still exclusively breastfeeding! We’re planning on waiting until 5-6 months to start any kind of solids. I can’t wait though! For now- were enjoying nursing. It’s still one of my favorite times with Gracie. It really has become a time of calmness in my day, and a time to truly be thankful for Gracie. I love it!


Gracie is wearing 3 month clothes!


Gracie is really trying to roll over! She has done it once or twice from her back to her tummy, but I think it was just accidental haha! She puts everything in her mouth- especially her fingers! She’s been laughing more- my favorite! Her neck is definitely stronger, but I think we still have a little while until she sits up on her own. She does not like loud noises. When Dave sneezes, she cries! AW!

How I feel

Great! I absolutely love being a mommy! I was made for this. What I am especially thankful for is the ability to stay at home with Gracie (thanks to my amazing hubby!). It is such a blessing to be able to witness every little thing Gracie does. I am loving it! I am a little bit shocked at how fast time is going, though. Where’s my teeny tiny baby!?

Happy four months Gracie!
