Cora turned 4 months old on Monday! And yeah, I forgot her sticker yet again so there’s definitely some bad photoshopping. haha!
Weight: 13lbs 8oz (47th percentile)
Height: 27in (99th percentile)
– The itsy bitsy spider

– Sitting in her high chair while Mom and Dad cook dinner
– Pooping out of her diaper when in said high chair
– Sophie the giraffe
– Playtime on her activity gym
– Mom’s dancing
– Her thumb
– Bubble Guppies
– Rolling from her back to her belly any chance she can get
– Screaming…for fun
– Chewing on her toes
– Downright REFUSING to do tummy time…I’m convinced our child will never crawl. Sigh.
Wearing: 3-6 month / 6 month clothes (+ most 9 month t-shirts), and ready for size 2 diapers once we finish her last package of 1’s. She has the most hilariously small butt. haha.
Sleeping: Aside from a random few nights where the four month sleep regression struck our household, she’s still a champion sleeper. Like typically 8:30pm-8:30am straight. Nap-wise, she’s a catnapper but we’re working on trying the 2-3-4 nap schedule to get down to two good naps and so far so good!
On this day one year ago, a package arrived in the mail. I had ordered it several days beforehand, after waking up at 2am with yet another pregnancy dream and my fourth day in a row of feeling nauseated. In the package sat three pregnancy tests from Amazon.. If you live in a small town where everyone talks, you know the benefit of ordering these types of things online. ;)
I had spent the last several days convincing myself I was being silly, so I didn’t even take the test immediately. I got dressed, drove into town, and ran some errands. Then I came home and popped a buffalo chicken sandwich into the microwave and decided to go take the test while it was cooking. I left the test sitting on the bathroom counter while it processed and went to eat my sandwich. As I was walking down the hall to go check out the result, I realized something: I was telling myself not to be disappointed if it was negative. Somehow, I had already fallen in love with the idea of having a baby, even though we had just discussed not wanting kids for a little while. I really really wanted that test to be positive.
And there it was.
Thus began the biggest whirlwind of a year I’ve ever experienced, and here we are one year later with the most amazing little girl.
Happy one year of loving your very existence, Cordelia Sue.
We had a few warm days not too long ago and I had Cora outside as much as possible. The only downside to having a fall baby is by the time they’re old enough to enjoy being outside, it’s sooo stinkin cold! So we went on a little trek to our mailbox one afternoon without worrying about frozen toes.
This was her first time riding in her stroller without being in her carseat and she loved being able to see everything!
