Fourth of July + Other Overdue Updates

I love the Fourth of July. This year was a little weird though. It was the night before Riley's baby blessing and we had to get everything ready for the big day so we didn't even watch fireworks. We did, however attend the Kaysville parade. I ran into my very good friend, Missy! I didn't take a picture. Meh. 


We look so happy but #realtalk, I was sweaty and being super first-time-mom. First it was the sirens are too loud for Riley, then it was too hot outside for Riley, then it was I don't want Riley to get sprayed by the fire truck, then it was we need to get the car cooling down. That Claire is always a joy.

Little cutie.
 How about some official Riley updates? How about three monthly updates in one post? Because that is where I am at in my life right now, haha.

She started socially smiling (not just gas or dreaming).

She was still tall and skinny. At her two-month appointment she was 9 lbs 9.5 oz. and 22 and 1/8th inches long. 25th percentile for weight; 75th percentile for height.

She also started sleeping through the night. Riley would go down at 10 PM (shameful), wake up to feed between 4 and 6 AM and go back down until 7:30-9:30 AM. Cannot complain about that.

She started batting at her toys and interacting MUCH more with us.

Riley really started smiling.

Riley started putting everything in her mouth.

She rolled over from front to back. I am not sure if it was because she was on a soft surface though. Who know? It's cute, though. :)

She can grab her toys most of the time now.

She has a ready smile for everyone. She is a very happy baby.

At Riley's four-month check up she weighed 12 lbs. 2 oz. (11th percentile) and was 24 and 1/4 inches long (40th percentile). Her pediatrician isn't worried. She said that she is just petite. Also at her check up her pediatrician said that she does some six-month-old things like standing really well and pulling her head off the ground while laying on her back. So advanced, haha. Go baby!

Favorite activities include playing with mommy and daddy, talking to her ceiling fan, and chewing on everythang. She also likes getting her gums brushed. She likes a lot of things really. I was telling Jeff the other night that we should have named her Joy because she is such a pleasant, joyful, little baby, pretty much around the clock. 

Also new, she hit the four-month sleep regression. I have been reading as much as I can about baby sleep. I am working on her routine and we will just see how things go. She slept all night last night though and is just finishing up a three hour nap... Who knows. 

Pictures to come. She just turned four months old a few days ago after all. 

Have a great weekend! :)
