Harper Kate - 4 Months


Harper had her 4 month check-up on Monday. Elliot came along -- and cried right along with her when she got her shots. Luckily the nurse thought he deserved a lollipop for being such an empathetic big brother.

Here are her stats:

Height: 24.5 inches (50th percentile)
Weight: 12 lbs 9 oz (50th percentile)
Head Circumference: 40.5 cm (50th percentile - phew!)
And, as Chris said, 99th percentile for smiling.

Harper continues to be an extremely pleasant baby. She smiles easily and often, giggles (mostly at her brother) regularly, and only fusses when she wants something. On the downside, her nighttime sleep has really taken a nose dive. Which is why we started sleep training. Yesterday. So far it has gone better than expected. Hopefully we'll get through it quickly as sleep training is, along with potty training, one of my least favorite parenting tasks.

I'm just dying to get my hands on that baby! She's so sweet. Good luck with sleep training. What are you doing with Elliot while you let her cry it out? Does he sleep through it? Audrey spend a few months out on the couch in the living room while we sleep trained Andrew. yuck. I agree with you when you say it's one of the things you dread most about parenting.

What a cutie. I can't wait to meet her in person!

You inspired me to start sleep training, too (better late than never). Ruby slept in her own bed last night. I got less sleep than usual, but I still call it a success! :) Good luck.

Yay for healthy, happy babies! She's adorable. A little Janelle for sure.
