Growing So Big So Fast

Elizabeth turned 4 months today so I did her monthly weighing and measuring. I knew she was getting big, but boy she is growing like a weed, especially for an entirely breastfed girl.

She weighed 13 pounds, 8 ounces and measured 26 1/2 inches. Here are some pictures I took today.

I've noticed her recently trying to drag herself forward using her hands. It doesn't work of course, but she has mastered lifting her head, neck and chest enough where she is now interested in learning how to chase her big sisters.

Cecilia couldn't resist the camera.

She likes to grab the blanket and bunch it up under her face and then gum it. She has been gumming more and more lately and while I haven't notices more drooling per se, she is sucking on her lower lip so much she is irritating her chin and lower lip.

Surrender to the blanket.
