Isla's 3 & 4 Month Update!


Okay this is a legit excuse. . . My camera on my Iphone won't focus anymore. I think it was dropped a few too many times. It drives me crazy and makes me not want to take photos because they come out so blurry. I will upload the least blurry ones here.

Isla Rose is a growing girl! We went to her 4 month well-check and learned she is 15 lbs 4 oz (85%) and 25 3/4 inches long (95%). I think she had actually slowed her weight gain or lost a little that week because I had just had mastitis and lost alot of supply. 

Sadly, our lovely night of 8-12 hours of sleep are a distant memory. She hasn't slept through the night since turning 4 months. At first I chalked it up to her 4 month growth spurt and the dreaded 4 month sleep regression and I am still hoping it is the latter. Please end soon. I don't think Avelyn slept through the night again until she was over 2. Isla wakes up every 2-3 hours at night and sometimes nurses for 45 mins! I am one tired mama over here.

I sure wish I payed more attention to what the 4 month milestones are.... Brandon got her to laugh (when I wasn't home) and I have been trying. I get an *almost* laugh easily but I haven't gotten a full belly laugh. Maybe because we are both too tired. ;)

She rolls over and has great neck and head control. She grabs toys to put in her mouth and grabs with just one hand. She talks A LOT ..mostly a series of growls and coos. They are like music! 

She is still the sweetest thing and has such a calm and easy-going nature. I hope she is forgiving as well for the late posts and blurry pictures..Sorry Baby Isla!
