4 Months!?

I have a 4 month old. How did this happen? I mean, I know kids grow up and they get older and all that stuff, but seriously, how is she 4 months old? We took her 4 months pictures Monday morning and she was sure working the camera. Pictures will be scattered throughout this post.

Tessa had her 4 month well baby check up and shots on Monday, and she did great. She was quite the ham for the nurse and doctor.

Here are her 4 month stats:
25 inches long-50th%
12lbs 4 oz-25th%
They didn't give us a number for her head circumference but said she was in the 75th percentile. Her head doesn't look that big. Oh well. Her brain is growing.

I learned the hard way that Tessa doesn't like the exam table that day. I'm not sure if it was the sound of the paper crinkling under her or if she was cold, but I had to hold her during the doctor's exam and she was screaming her head off and crying before they even got near her with a needle. The second her head hit that table she was red faced and angry. The shots themselves didn't seem to bother her too much since she was already crying I couldn't tell if it actually hurt her. It definitely startled her though.

A big hug from mom and a chance to nurse after the appointment seemed to cure her. We then made a quick trip to the car dealership to scope out a few cars. We're still not sure when/what we're getting a new-ish car but one is definitely needed in the near future.

By the way, she grabbed and hugged the koala on her own. It was precious. Then she ate his head.
