Margie had her four month check up this week. She measured 13 pounds which puts her in the 45% for weight in contrast to 26 1/2 inches long which put her in the 97% for height. She is a long lean drooling machine who happens to be in excellent health.
At her appointment, we got a little advice on sleep habits. Margie has been sleeping in my arms since she was three weeks old. It was nice because we all got sleep. However, she is getting way too big to hold all night with out arm craps. So we tried the "Crying out" method and few weeks ago. It totally didn't work for her. She just cried herself horse. This week we tried the "crying it out with comfort" method which has been working much better. The first night she cried on and off for two hours, the next night for one hour, and last night she didn't cry at all! Praise the Lord this mama loves her little one but desperately wanted her bed back!
In addition to sleep training, we got the go ahead to start feeding her cereal. Well as we do in the Edinger house hold...we pulled out the camera and and camcorder to catch the whole event on film!
Before I could even get the bib on Margie stuck her hand in the cereal.
When I went to put it in her mouth she grabbed the spoon and stuck it in herself.
Look mom all gone!
But of course we had to end our meal by eating the bib!
