We just recently had Leora's fourth month appointment. Both Kent and I are astounded at how quickly she's grown, she's now over 25 inches long which puts her in the 89 percentile for height, she weighs just over 12 pounds which makes her a bit of a beanpole since that puts her at the 26 percentile for weight. The doctor is sure it was a recent bout of illness where she had trouble keeping her food down that had her weight so low.
She still is fairly cautious of Elias, she quickly becomes silent when he comes near and if his pats are gentle she'll watch him with a wary expression. If his patting becomes a little firmer she'll begin to whimper as if to give us warning, "He's too close for my comfort right now!" As for Keila she always smiles warmly until the loving is much too suffocating and then hollers in protest. Isaac is always there to help when I can't give her the desired attention, he can pick her up or hold her in his lap while he plays and she likes the security that big brother offers. They will be such an interesting crowd as they get older.
We just began solids the other day and she was thrilled to try it out, ever so pleased with her big-girl self! She's had oatmeal and carrots and is unsure of the taste but happy to make a go of it every meal.
