4 Months

This little one just keeps on growing..obviously.  But it seems like just yesterday I was complaining of pregnancy symptoms.  How can that be?  I've said it time and again, time just flies.
Our Hallie bug is so much fun these days.  She has brought so much joy into our home and a sweet calm spirit that is so refreshing.

Weight: 12lbs. 11oz. - 50%

Head: 15 3/4in. - 15%

Since our last post you have digressed into your newborn sleep patterns and it's killing me. Not really, but I miss my 7-8 hour stretches of sleep.  You typically wake up at 8, nap from 10-12 and 2-4, then you're in bed by 8 and up at 3 or 4 to eat.  It's not that bad, but it's not how you were sleeping :)

You still LOVE your food.  And I still love feeding you.  I hated feeding your sister because she didn't like eating, but you, you are happiest when you're eating.  You eat 5-6oz every 4 hours and will only take it from a bottle now.  It makes me so sad that you no longer want to nurse but we definitely had our struggles and this seems to be what's best for you and me.  You're still drinking breast milk but have on occasion gotten formula and have been just fine drinking that too.  We've also tried giving you cereal on two occasions and you seem to really like eating that too.  The first time you really struggled eating from a spoon, but the second time you caught on great and ate the entire bowl :)

You are constantly making noise these days.  You love giggling with your sister and are easy to get a big grin out of.  You love the sound of your spit gurgling in the back of your throat and make that noise more than any other.  You also love the sound, "Ah-goo" and usually giggle when I do it.  It's the cutest.  Sage can make you laugh more than any body else.  It's one of my favorite things about being a mom of sisters.  It is clear how much you two love each other because of the way you interact with each other.

Awesome Things You Do Right Now:
Roll Over
Play in the Exersaucer
Put yourself to sleep
Self Soothe
Giggle from your toes, I swear.
Eat from a spoon

 Hallie bug, you've made me so happy these last 4 months! Here's to 4 more with a little more sleep :)

And just because this blog wouldn't be here without your big sister, here are a few recent pics of her.  She's constantly got me on my toes these days and is a little firecracker.  But we love her regardless :)

My all time favorite picture of Sagers.

This girl knows how to cheese :)

Nice Sage, nice.

And since I'm sure you won't hear from me until Christmas, Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!
