Ella is 4 months today! She seems so big to me even though we still get, "Is she a month old?"! We think she's about 12 pounds now. She is still eating 7 times a day...BM during the day, and Nutramigen or Alimentum formula for the bedtime, dream feed and middle of the night feedings. She rolls over like a champ from tummy to back, but she's still working on rolling from back to front...she's so close! She gets her legs, tummy, shoulder and arm completely over, but can't figure out how to swing the arm she's laying on over! She loves the car, and almost always falls asleep when we're driving. She loves people, and she'll smile at anyone now if she's in the mood. She's loving grandpa lately, and he can always get a smile and a laugh. She "talks" to daddy all the time, especially in the morning, and has big belly laughs. She is truly the joy of our lives.
I thought of a few more things while we were on our walk today that I'll want to remember...E is still sleeping in her pram in our room (but we plan on having her sleep in her crib tonight for the first time). She also still takes walks in her pram, but we hope to put her in the regular seat soon so she can look around! She is in a size 1 diaper, and depending on brand, she typically wears a size 3 month or 3-6 month in clothes. In some brands, she can still wear 0-3 or even 6 months.
