Kensington Grace: Four Months

Weight: 14lbs, 13oz on 10/9/15.

Height: 24-something inches on 10/9/15.

Hair: Brown, with hints of red in it. We don't have any full blown gingers in our family (LOLz), but red highlights do run in both sides of the fam, so she very well could have some tint to her brown hair in the long run. We'll see!

Eyes: Blue! Sometimes they look greenish though. Either way, they're gorg!

Clothes: Wearing 6 month clothing! I love every ounce of my big, chunky girl.

Diapers: Size 2. But not much longer. Can you believe how quickly she's growing?!

Sleeping: Sleeping is honestly hit or miss. I don't dwell on it anymore, nor do I check the clock when I get up these days. It's just a part of our lives. That should be encouraging for new parents, or soon-to-be parents. You definitely get used to it! Some nights Kensington will sleep from 9pm-6am and other nights, she'll wake up at midnight, then 3am. Apparently around 4 months old, there is a sleep regression that typically occurs. On top of that, we're starting to teethe a little bit. AND on top of those two things, we're transitioning out of the swaddle since homegirl rolls like crazy. We're currently using a half swaddle (so her arms are free) and the zipadeezip. Anyways, if you add all three of those things up, you'll find that it equals sleep deprivation for mama and daddy. Oh and I forgot to mention that we've also started having Kensie Girl nap in her bedroom so that she starts to get accustomed to her crib and smell/feel of the nursery. But... no plans to transition her anytime soon :) Hashtag overprotective mama.

Eating: K hates the bottle (but I stopped breastfeeding a while ago). Anyways, she does skip a meal or two, but you wouldn't know it because she's gaining the appropriate amount of weight, and growing steadily. She is a formula fed baby, eating around 6oz for every meal. Occasionally she'll just want to snack around 4oz.

Kensie's favorite things: My daughter loves: 1) her toes, 2) being held, 3) rolling over - but then she hates to be stuck on her tummy, 4) being talked to/singed to on our bed, 5) sitting up, 6) looking in the mirror.

Mommy's favorite things: Every moment with Kensie Grace is special. But lately I've been loving to hold her on my hip, look in the mirror and make her smile, then she shyishly turns around with a huge grin on her face. It is SO precious. 

Daddy's favorite things: Daddy likes to play video games with K napping on his chest. 

Mommy's nicknames for Kensie: Jitterbug, Doodlebug, Sister Bear, Kensie Girl, Sister.

Daddy's nicknames for Kensie: Princess.

New with Kensie: She started rolling over on September 24. Also, she had her first official laugh on October 1. What a ham!

Prayer: Jesus, please watch over and keep safe my baby girl. As she's learning to become more mobile, I know that accidents are prone to happen. But I ask that you'll cover Kensie Grace with your protective hand. I also pray that her daddy and I are able to hear your loving guidance and wisdom in raising this sweet little girl. Lord, we ask you to show us the way to raise her in a home that loves Christ. We are so thankful for this miracle baby. You get the glory, amen!
