Bethany 4 Months--Late!

Again--I am late with the monthly update on our newest little angel. Keeping busy!

  • Bethy just started eating baby food. So far she loves cereal and yogurt. We started yogurt to help with a case of thrush and thankfully it has almost cleared up and I didn't get it and we managed to avoid giving the horrible anti-fungal medicine (the side effects are SCARY).

  • Bethy can sit up in a cloth diaper for about a minute, in a disposable about 5 seconds

  • Bethany loves her Johnny jump up and her exersaucer for about 10 minutes now. We can stretch her if the other children are messing with her.

  • Bethany can now ride on my hip in the sling--no more laying down for this chickie poo

  • We dedicated Bethany at church--picture above--and she wore my old christening gown from when I was a baby
  • Bethany is now going to the nursery at church and seems to like it
  • Bethany can roll around to get to where she wants
  • Bethany can see something and reach and grab for it. If she gets it it goes straight to the mouth.
  • Bethany loves chewing on her hands and her fingers but won't suck to soothe--she loves a paci for that
  • We just started Bethy on baby Zantac at night and it is a miracle drug--she is so much happier at night and has gone from getting up 5 or 6 times to getting up twice. She even slept 10 hours straight on Saturday night (HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!)
  • Bethany is liking her sister more every day. She actually laughed at her the other day. This is a big change from crying every time Lydia talked to her a month ago.
  • Bethany takes three naps a day. She's up around 6:30, naps around 8:30 for 30 or 45 minutes. Naps around 11am for at least an hour and naps around 2:30 for two hours or so. She goes to bed around 6:30 or 7pm.
