4 Months, as the Calendar Flies


On November 8th, Bri turned 4 months old. We celebrated by taking her to Costco, her first foray into the madness we call Saturday shopping. New sights, sounds, and (sadly) smells galore. She observed everything with rapt serenity then slept beautifully that night as her brain processed all the items she can overbuy in her future.

On Friday Bridgette attended her 4 month check-up, and we found out just exactly how chubby she is.

15 pounds 6 ounces - Way to go babs!

If there is one thing I've learned at school, it's that when I expect a C+ on a paper or test, getting a B seems fantastic. And so, with the assumption that my baby's weight would be off the percentile chart, I was thrilled that it was only 80%. Big? Yes. But so much smaller than expected!

So, here is the run-down: height = 50%; weight = 80%, head circumference = 50%.

This is Bri's pediatrician, Dr. Savage.
Babe had just gotten vaccinations (thus the band-aids on her thighs,) so she wasn't in a particularly good humor for this photo.

chunky babies are the cutest. Of course I'm biased b/c Brayden was chunky :).

4 more weeks to go! Hopefully less than that but I guess we'll see.

Oh my gosh, those thighs are to die for. Although I think Addi has her by a few pounds, if they were to find themselves in a leg war, Bri would definitely win.
