Sarah Beth is 4 months old!!!

As you all know, I'm no longer pregnant. It took me 4 months to update my blog. Needless to say, motherhood is great but demanding! Sarah Beth was born on April 27, 2010. She's a sweet and sassy little thing and Adam and I love her so much. Rather than going back and posting from birth to now, I'm just going to start with now. Maybe one day I'll be able to go back and catch up (yeah right!).

We just had her 4 month check up today. SB is 16 lbs 14 oz and 26 inches long! She's 95th percentile across the board. She got a few shots which did not make her very happy, but as soon as I picked her up the tears stopped. She is rolling over from her back to her tummy and has done tummy to back once. She has great hand/eye coordination and loves putting all of her toys into her mouth! She is a drooling machine - by the end of the day her shirt is usually soaked. She has slept through the night since about 6 weeks old. She's up to about 10-12 hours at a time. She's not really into napping a lot - she'll do one long nap a day if we are home plus a few cat naps. She's easy to take out. She loves being in the car and going to run errands with us.

I love being a stay at home mom. At first I was wondering what I had gotten myself into, but we have started a routine and are doing great. I've gotten involved with Moms Club and MOPS so that usually keeps us busy. We also go to Gymboree Gym every Wednesday for her class which is a lot of fun! The weeks are just flying by and she's growing up so fast. I want her to stay tiny forever, but at the same time I love watching her grow and discover new things. She's just like a little sponge soaking everything in.

Dr. Hutchins gave us the go ahead for solids, so I'm going to make her some brown rice cereal. I'm trying to do all organic homemade food for her. So far I've frozen some pureed SC peaches (yumm) and green beans. I can't wait to see her reaction to food - stay tuned for pictures!
