Isla Rose Grows, 4 Months

Sweet Isla Jane.

4 months have gone by in a blink! It’s a cliché we know all too well, but these babies truly are little time machines. Our Sawyer is going to be TWO next month. TWO! I know I’m going to go to bed one night and wake up and my baby Isla will be the same.

Without a doubt, 4 months is a favorite. Isla really woke up and became a little person with a huge personality this month and we can’t get enough of her. She coos and belly laughs, watches her brother go everywhere, and follows me around the room with her big brown eyes.

Isla is my baldy baby, it’s so funny because Sawyer had a full head of hair, and Isla is a q-tip. Other than that, though, the two of them are pretty much twins in the looks department. They couldn’t possibly be more different in personality, though. Isla likes to sleep flat on her back, next to you, but not being held. Sawyer would only sleep being held or rocked, and Isla wants none of that.

I have this feeling that once she is off and moving, I’ll never get my snuggle girl back. From the day she came out she has been so strong, but lately she tries so hard to sit up, stand, and push herself up onto everything in sight. I wouldn’t be surprised if she is crawling by 6 months. She is desperate to keep up with her big brother.

She’s still exclusively breastfed, and as this isn’t my first rodeo I don’t think we’ll have any issue making it to her first birthday. She had no trouble at all taking bottles when I went back to work, and as much as I despise pumping, it’s going just fine. Isla is absolutely full of chunk now. Her rolls have rolls and I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything cuter! I can’t help but smooch those big chubby cheeks and squeeze her michelen arms every chance I get. She weighs 15.5 pounds and is in the 73 percentile. Pretty darn average compared to her HUGE brother who was always in the 99th. We don’t start solids with our littles until 6+ months, but I can’t believe were almost to the age where she can start exploring food. It’s always so fun to see!

Her favorite place to be is on my hip. She has such great head control now she absolutely loves to walk around with you so she can see everything. My curious girl, that’s for sure.

Sleep is a nightmare, but it feels easier this time because I know it will come to an end. She slept so well the first few months of her life, and then 4 months hit and it went out the window! She has been waking up around 3 AM happy as a freaking clam, kicking and talking and its so precious despite the way my eyes burn in those early morning hours. We’re currently working on getting her and brother on a somewhat similar schedule as I’d like to start sleep training her to sleep in her nursery with brother around 6 months.

Things I absolutely don’t want to forget this month:

Her tongue! It is out ALL the time. Once she realized that was in there, she had to share it with the world! All of her drool. Homegirl will soak an outfit in no time flat, and that little grin with slobber coming out just kills me. Her infectious baby smile. You can literally see the sunshine spread across her face when she sees you in the morning. I joke that she is thinking “you! I know you! I missed you alllll night!” Her sweet little belly laugh. She squeals with excitement when you give her kisses and that laugh is music to my ears.

Sweet baby girl is the perfect puzzle piece in our family. She is so desperately loved and I can’t believe all 3 of us are lucky enough to have her. I dream sometimes of the day she and Sawyer are running around together like 2 peas in a pod. Motherhood is the best ya’ll. It’s also the sleepiest, but the best none the less. ;)
