She needed all that food to chunk up to her new weight of 12 lbs 6 oz :) That puts her in the 15th% for weight, she is now 45th% for height, and 75th% for her noggin. Those are all HUGE jumps from her 3 month appointment. She has almost outgrown her size 1 diapers and is sleeping in size 2 diapers. We have nighttime size 2 diapers on the way via Amazon b/c she sleeps so long a regular doesn't quite suffice. All of her 3 month clothes still have plenty of room, but her 0-3mos things got packed away. She is our growing girl!
She is also dropping her evening fussy hours for the most part. She has typically been tricky from 4ish-7ish(bedtime). But now she does pretty good until after 6. Overall she is a happy girl, and she is ALWAYS our sweet girl even when she gets cranky :) Our friend Heidi who watches her while we are at work said it best when she called her a "little Hot Tamale" when she gets impatient. So funny. We can usually anticipate what she needs, but with bottles it has been tricky to predict. If I make her a 6oz bottle, she takes 4. If I make her a 4oz bottle she wants 6. So, now she gets 5oz bottles all day and a bigger bottle before bed. This seems to be working.
I think the favorite part of our day is when either of us goes in to get her when she wakes up. She sees us and just gives a HUGE gummy grin. Melts my heart. It is THE best way to wake up. We also get her into giggling fits a couple times a day which is SO cute. You are VERY loved Brooke Olivia, very very very loved!

|This pic really shows what a train wreck Brooke's hair is right now. Few could pull this off: bald spots, 2 crowns, comb over, .....|
|I don't hate this tummy time quite as much now. Thank goodness!|
|Toes, toes, toes!|
|Such a smiley girl these days!|
