Emilya - 4 Months

Eating: We are still breastfeeding and things are continuing to go well! She does not nurse well in public areas or loud areas and will get easily distracted. We increased her "overnight" bottle to 5 ounces, but she has been sleeping all night most nights and ends up getting it at 5 AM or 6 AM. I think we will consider introducing pablum next month! 

Sleeping: Emilya is a great sleeper. We are in the middle of sleep training because we found ourselves getting into the habit of rocking her to sleep for waay to long! So now we put her to bed on 
her queues, which is often after nursing or she will just get fussy and we will rock her for 5 minutes and then lay her down drowsy. So far it is working! We are no longer swaddling her and she is sleeping in a sleep sack now! She is going to bed around 8:30/9 and waking between 5/6 AM, at which time she will get her bottle and then go back to sleep for an hour or two. 

Clothing: Emilya is wearing size 3-6 months in most of the clothes. Shorts are still 3 months, as 6 months are too big in the waste. Her 3 month pants are getting short, but 6 months are just a bit long, so 3-6 month is the best. She is wearing 3-6 month sleepers or 6 month sleepers! Emilya is wearing size 2 pampers swaddlers.

Skin and Hair: I am happy to report Emilya has quite a bit of hair growing in on the the top of her head, however it is very light!! The back of her hair is still pretty dark. So far it is pretty straight like her mama's! Emilya's eyes are very blue, but it is hard to say if they will be as light as Noah's or not. 

Weight:   4 Months: 15lbs, 1oz

Her Length is 26 inches!! She is soo tall!!

What The Doctor Had To Say: Emilya is healthy and doing great! She did much better with her shots this time, despite the syringe breaking where the needle screws on during the second needle. She wasn't as miserable for the few days past the needles either, so that was a bonus! We see the ENT this month as well. We also for,owed up with the audiologist and her left ear is still considered moderate hearing loss, and although it improved slightly, it wasn't enough to change the fact that she will likely still need a hearing aid for that ear. 


Nicknames: Emma, Em, Emy, Baby, Little Miss, Littlest Squish, Baby girl, Baby Bunny, Emilya Hope, Sis


Big Brother Update: Noah is still doing a great job! He shares his toys with her for the most part and has really figured out the trading system if she has something he wants, he will ask her if he can have it and then give her something else in place of it! He lives introducing her to people and loving on her! Greeting her after naps is his favorite job and he goes marching in our room gets to her bed and says "Hi Emilya Hope!"


Likes: rolling around, Nemo and Dory, her play mat, her Muslin blankets, her lovey, her brother, being read to, being outside, bathes, a few different toys, being carried in the baby bjorn, the exersaucer, standing, and dogs. 


Dislikes: the car, or sitting still.


Personality: Emilya is overall a happy girl and is super easy going for the most part. She will pretty much flash a smile at anyone who gives her attention! As long as there is no car ride involved, she is pretty much game for anything! Even sleep training has gone pretty smoothly! We are hoping to start napping her up in her nursery soon. Even with the issues with her left ear, you would never know she has a hearing problem, as she does respond to voices and sounds! 

This months photos were taken a little late!
