letters to veda - 4 months
July 10, 2017
What a big month of transitions!
You are a rolling pro both ways, you've started to laugh, and you are talking, smiling, and squealing constantly. You love to put things in your mouth and you love grabbing your feet.
You are still a great sleeper. Most of the time, you don't make a peep going down and you wake up happily making noise. We dropped the 4th nap this month and you've done so well with it. So you take 3 naps a day and sleep 12 hours at night. Your waketime is around an hour and 25-30 minutes. We've transitioned your swaddle to one arm down and one arm bent up so you can suck your fingers.
You are 26.5 in. long (99%) and 16 lbs. (82%). You eat 5 times a day, 5-7 oz. each time. I hesitate saying you spit up a lot since Duke spit up an unbelievable and unmatched amount, but I do think it's safe to say that you spit up a fairly considerable amount. But thanks to the Zantac we started a few weeks after you were born, you've been pain-free. I'll take a happy spitter any day!
You are the sweetest little bundle, Veda. I just don't know how else to say it. I love squeezing you up and covering you in sugars. Duke and Nova are always saying, "I wanna give her a sug!" They have loved seeing you respond to and interact with them.
We are so thankful for you, Veda. You have been the most precious little addition to our family and I can't imagine life without you. I love you.
