Ava - 4 Months Old

Okay okay...technically Little Miss is about 4 1/2 months old right now...I'm a bit behind...but that's just what you do when you're a new mom...right? RIGHT?!

Weight: about 14-15 lbs

Diet: 4 oz bottles of formula, every 2 hours! Sometimes she'll go 2 1/2 or 3 hours...but it's almost always every 2 hours.

Sleep: Ava is still a super baby sleeping through the night for us. We are thankful every day, more specifically every morning! I think this is why she eats so often during the fuel up for her big sleep! Ava wakes up around 7-8, naps mid morning, mid day, mid afternoon, and goes to bed around 8:15 each night. It's awesome! At this point, if she's not asleep in our arms, we can put her down in the crib and she'll just nod off on her own. We still use a sound machine, and usually a night time binky. Sometimes she still fights her sleep at naptime. Ava wakes herself up in the mornings and I listen to her morning chat with herself. Love. Taking after mommy already.

What's going on:
This past month Ava started tucking her bottom lip in a lot. And just this past week alone she started making this hilarious face - both lips sucked in, neck stuck out (visible even! lol), eyes wide, nose scrunched, ends with a lip smack! We love it. Maybe these are Ava Kisses.
She reaches for anything and everything in sight.
She still drools...a lot. In fact, mommy made a new terrycloth backed bib last night. She's gonna need it!
Still jabbering, now at louder volumes. She got to practice her shouting at Aunt Leah's volleyball game earlier this month.
Ava has finally noticed and become infatuated with Lily and Lola (dog and cat). I'm not sure the feeling is mutual.
I think that sitting up independently is coming...this kid has a super strong core and is working on balance. What she still isn't doing is rolling over. She just isn't interested.
First road trip taken...see earlier post.
Our swing quit working. Gasp! Wynston has been told to look into the situation. :)

Lip tucked!

This one is blurry, but I think it's charming.
