4 Months!

Taylor, you are 4 GLORIOUS months old! 

You are soooo much fun to be with.  I’d do everything with you if I had my way.  You are my little buddy and love every minute I spend with you.IMG_4093-1

You are so happy and sweet!  You bring a smile and an “awwwee” to everyone you meet.  You are my reminder every day that miracles DO happen!11

I like to look back and remember what life was like when Taylor was 4 months old, so here is what she’s been up to lately…

Taylor sleeps about 11 hours each night.  She’s now graduated from a swaddler to a sleep sack and loves to sleep with her arms up by her head.  We sing a song or two before bed and usually read a book.  Her favorite is Snuggle Puppy.

Taylor loves school.  Her teachers adore her and she is thriving there.  I feel happy to drop her off there because I know she is getting great care.  My favorite part of each day is picking her up and knowing she’s all mine!  I just want to eat her up! 

She is losing all of her dark hair and it’s coming back in kind of strawberry blonde.  She’s literally changing before my eyes!  Taylor loves to talk and blow bubbles.  She is super strong too and stands up while we hold her and loves to hold her own head up, like a big girl.  She’s also starting to cut a few teeth!

4 Month Stats

Height: 25 inches -  60th percentile (up from 52nd percentile at 2 months)

Weight: 13lbs. 1 oz. – 25th percentile (I was shocked at this.  I thought for sure all those chucks would weigh more than that!)

Head circumference: 16 inches – 43rd percentile (down from 78th percentile at 2 months – Her body is catching up with her head! :) )

The months are just flying by and she just keeps getting better and better!  Our little mini-photo shoots that I do with her are so much fun.  She just poses and smiles and I just snap away!

Love, love, love this picture of her!  I need to get it framed.

  1. What a sweet child Taylor is- love her!

    I think it's great that you do this each month! I'll have to steal this idea for Sophie- but maybe you can take the pictures for me. You are getting to be quite the photographer. :)

    Oh & I had to compare Cam's 4 month stats & he weighed 17 pounds, 2 ounces so a full 4 pounds more! That's a dainty girl vs. a tank boy!!

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
