Sweet pea turned 4 months last week and we had her 4 month check up a few days later. The doctor was very pleased with her size and her social sweetness. She cooed and laughed at him the whole time. We saw our new doctor in our new town and I really like him! He took so much time to talk and get to know us. I think he will be a great fit for our family.
Sadie is a big girl! At least she is proportional I suppose. Jude was bigger at this stage too and thinned out once he started moving. Here are her stats:
Head Circumference: 16.25 cm (90%)
Weight: 15 lb. 14 oz (75%)
Length: 24.5 in. (75%)
Sadie does have excema and the cyst on her eye is one we have to keep an eye on. It is on her left eye brow. Our first pediatrician thought it was a birth trauma but our new doctors feels certain it is not. He gave me the name of the kind of cyst but I don't remember. :( It could go away, but if he doesn't by age 2, he will refer us to an eye surgeon. As long as it does not effect her vision, which now it does not seem to be, we have no worries other than the cosmetic side of things.
At 4 months, Sadie LOVES to jump. She wants to jump in her play table, jump while standing on your legs, or lie on the bed while Jude jumps on it. She laughs and is so ticklish. She is on a good day schedule, taking a morning nap around 10, an afternoon nap around 1:30 and an evening cat nap around 5-5:30 pm. Bed time is 8-8:30, dream feed at 10:30, and she wakes between 4-5 to feed, then goes back to sleep until 7-7:30. She has skipped the early morning feeding a few times, but not consistently. She continues to not care much about her bappy but does enjoy snuggling with her lovey. She can roll backwards and forwards and enjoys chewing/sucking on her fingers. She adores Jude and watching him.
Sadie, you are a beautiful blessing and we love you more each day!

What do you want to be when you grow up: A scientist. I want to study antelope and you will come with me to catch antelope. You have to stay with Daddy though. I am going to shot the antelope with my gun and you stay with Daddy and I will go get the antelope.
You have grown into a handsome, sweet, smart, wonderful boy. We are so proud of the huge things you've already done. In the past year, you have said good bye to your bappy. You are now potty trained and sleeping in a big bed. You welcomed your first sibling and we made another move. You continue to learn every day. You know all your letters, numbers 1-20, and are learning how to write your name and phonemes. You continue to love to read and hear stories. You are learning new Bible verses and show your manners. You are so incredibly precious to us. We pray every day that you will know Jesus as your Savior and choose to follow him every day. We love you so very much!

This is definitely a change in pace considering we are in another small town, quite different than life near a large city, but it's a blessing to be home every day and to know Justin will be home with us. We are enjoying our time as spring approaches (and Jude's birthday this weekend!)
She truly is a very contented and happy baby. She naps well and her favorite things are her jumpy toy and watching Jude play. She will actually cry at times until you put her into her jumpy.
We go for her 4 month check up next week so I'm eager to see how Miss Pris is growing.
Though I greatly miss my friends and am adjusting to a new town, I am thankful for God's hand over us and for these passing days with my babes.
