Selena: 4 months

I don't know what I did to make the lighting in this photo so bad. And I can't seem to fix it x_x

But my baby's smile!! :D :D :D

Size: Oh I'm guessing about 15 pounds. We'll see after her 4 month appointment.

New developments: See those fingers in the mouth?! Yup. She refuses to take a pacifier and only takes a bottle when she absolutely has to, but she seems to really be enjoying those fingers! She's given us big beautiful belly laughs… mostly at the expense of her big brother jumping around and dancing to make her laugh. As her hair is getting longer, it's getting a little bit of a curl (but not nearly as much as Caleb's hair did).

Sleep: No complaints, really. I think there's only been 1 night this month that she woke up and didn't go back to sleep for a while, but for the most part she is sleeping pretty well.

Movement: I have to start watching her more closely in the bassinet or the swing (or wherever), because she's getting good at wiggling around. She can control her arms pretty good now to where she reaches for things to grab them and shake them.

Likes: Wiggling and kicking. Sucking on her fingers. “Talking” to me when I lie down next to her and have my face very close to hers. Looking at bright or blinking lights. Watching Caleb play. Pulling on hanging toys. Holding on to things REALLY tight (like my hair sometimes, ouch).

Dislikes: Anyone besides me holding her. Oh my goodness, it's mami mami mami and ONLY mami. Strong winds. When she thinks she is alone. Loud noises or yells.

My favorite moments: Definitely hearing her enthusiastic belly laughs. Watching her reach out for Caleb. Knowing she is healthy, strong, and developing well.

I know what you mean, it's like she's always been here, right? :)

It's weird to see your Christmas card by my computer where you're pregnant and here she is, already 4 months old, though the other day i could swear she's been alive for years woops lol

So very sweet Selena is.
And how nice to see these great detailed updates, I liked how you chronicled the journey while pregnant.
