4 Months

Lyla James and Mary Connor y'all are 4 months today!!

   You all had your well-check today and it went great.  Well, until it was time for the shots.  My ears are still ringing! 

   Lyla James you weigh 13.4lbs and you are 24 1/4 inches long.  Mary Connor you weigh 14.6lbs. and you - are 24 inches long. 

   You both are sleeping great- typically 8 to 10 hours at night which makes your Mommy and Daddy very happy!  You all haven't really established a set routine for naps during the day, but you both fall asleep at least for a few minutes between every feeding.  

   Lyla James, you STILL refuse to nurse, but we seem to have hit on a mixture that works for you: 2 oz. expressed milk, 1 1/2 oz. Nutramigen formula, rice cereal every 2 1/2 to 3 hours during the day.  Your acid reflux is much better and you are only taking 1/2 tablet of Prevacid a day.  You are very particular about who holds you and feeds you.  You have started wrinkling your nose when you smile- it's precious!

  Mary Connor, you are refusing a bottle now so you nurse every 2 1/2 to 3 hours during the day.  You must be beginning to teethe because you chew on your hands constantly.  I can't see any teeth but your gums are really swollen.  You squeal really loudly and then look around like you're not sure who made that noise- it is hilarious!
