Baby Progress

I need to post some pictures and will do so shortly, however we have had a great couple of weeks.

Two weeks ago we ventured to Sun Peaks Canada with Chris’s family and work friends…it was great! We were a little worried because we were taking a 7 hour bus ride with a 4 month old baby. But Addie was a champ. Not only did she not make a peep the entire time…just her usual babbling and sleeping, she didn’t poop the entire time we were on the bus! I know to some of you this may not seem blog worthy, but to us it was a small miracle…we were in the hotel exactly 5 minutes and she let it go 🙂 She did great up there, despite the 8 degree weather and mom getting out to ski everyday for about 3 hours. On the way home she did great as well, but a little too much food, curvy roads and looking out the window did make for a very impressive spit up session. This resulted in me sitting in baby barf soaked pants for about 2 hours, she missed herself and her dad completely!

This last week we have been adjusting to life with a nanny. It has been wonderful to have some help on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday’s. She is wonderful with Addie and it is great for me not to stress out about what is going on.

Yesterday we had her 4 month check up. Her stats are:

Height: 25.5 inches long (she is one tall baby) 60%
Weight: 13 lbs 8 ounces (she is still pretty little) 40%
Head circumference: 16 inches (no big head in this family) 30%

She had another shot and did great. I have to leave the room, so it is great that Chris is able to come with us.

That is all for now, I will update the pictures later!

Blessings to you all!


Update on our progress

1. Bottle – Addie is now taking the bottle like a champ. Woohoo! She’ll take it from anyone…Praise the Lord.
2. Food – We have started supplementing 1/2 formula and 1/2 breast milk for her last feeding and giving her an extra feeding at night.
3. Sleep – This is directly related to #2 – She is sleeping so much better after we started giving her a little more food.
4. We are all more rested and a lot more happy!

Thank you to all for your comments and suggestions!


Just some updated photos…3 months old




Addie is getting bigger everyday. It is crazy, I spend everyday with her, but I still am so surprised by all the changes that she goes through. Yesterday she started rolling a lot…she rolls from her back to her side and can almost get over, however when she is on her stomach she rolls right to her back. She thinks it is a game, because when I help her go back, she laughs and just goes right back to her back. It is so cute!

It is so fun to see all her changes and I am loving this stage!
