Here is sweet Kella! She was four months old on the 29th. I can't believe 1.how fast time has gone and 2.how big she's getting. We took her to see our favorite doctor today, and she weighs 15 pounds 11 oz and is 26 inches long. That puts her in the 90th percentile for weight and 97th for height. Her head circumference came in at 25th percentile-just like her brothers-big bodies, little heads. But, as our "dainty" girl, she actually is a smidgen shorter and weighs less than any of the brothers did at this age. The boys had at least a quarter inch and almost a whole pound on Kella at four months. Guess she is our "little" girl!
I tried taking her picture while Glee was on. She was very taken by Kurt's singing. She loves to be sung to!
Kella is still pretty easy-going. She does not like to be cold or to be tired. She hasn't figured out that if she would go to sleep, she could fix the being tired thing. She chews on her hands and Andy's fingers. She likes to sit up straight and likes being in the walker. Not a lover of tummy time, mostly because she grabs the blanket underneath her and it gets all scrunched up in her face. Our doctor was testing her strength and Kella can kind of be propped up in a tripod sitting position. Very exciting-I guess that's a 6 month old skill. She sleeps through the night-but, she doesn't fall asleep for the night until 11pm. A couple times she's slept a good 12 hours and I bet she would do that more if we didn't have places to go almost every day. It's tough being the 5th. Her hair is calming down into a comb-over 'do that's got some body to it. Kind of like she's got a bump-it in underneath that hair. She loves, LOVES to be talked to and there is usually at least on brother willing to entertain her. In fact, pretty much anywhere we go, people like to talk to her. Favorite song: any, favorite toy: soft ones she can grab. Favorite color: mommy does dress her in a ton of pink still. Favorite food: not yet. So sweet!
