Big Girl turned 17 weeks yesterday!
We went to the doctor last week and go okayed to start rice cereal and then baby food (after a couple successful weeks on rice cereal) which was very good news! Nyla's been extra hungry the past few weeks, she wasn't getting enough during the day and was very fussy. She even started waking up in the middle of the night again, unusual for her since she's been sleeping through the night since she was 7 weeks old. But all is good now. Rice cereal is going well and we are supplementing with formula. I never wanted to supplement with formula but she's happier and more content and that's the most important thing.
In other news, she weighed 15 pounds and 1.5 ounces at her 4 month check-up, was 26 inches long (or the length of a 6 month old...wow). Her weight is in the 90th percentile and her length is in the 95th percentile. These percentiles are nothing new since they've been off the charts since birth. She is one growing girl!
She started rolling over about 3 weeks ago, which was very exciting to watch. She was a big time roly poly for about a week and a half, but has slowed down now. She still hates being on her stomach for long periods of time, but is getting propped up pretty well now. She's at about a 45 degree angle and she'll probably be pushing up even further very soon. She loves to stand up and see things and is becoming unhappy when we try and sit her in our lap, she'd rather stand, silly girl. :) She holds her head up so well and is becoming less of a bobble head.
Because she loves to stand up, her Aunt Erin bought her an exersaucer (an early Christmas gift) and she LOVES it! She taps her foot on the bottom (yes she can reach), looks at all the lights and colors, accidentally presses the buttons and has a funny look on her face when she does and just loves it overall. We stuff a towel around her so she can sit up well in it, the seat is so big that she'd fall forward or backward if we didn't. But it was a great early present and we're getting a lot of use out of it. It's wearing her out and helping her take better naps, which I appreciate!
