Four Months Old!!

My little Penelope is four months old!! I can't believe this time has flown by! She is so much fun. I feel like NOW we are finally in the swing of things. She makes me laugh every single day.

I took her in for her four month appointment last week and basically found out what we had suspected. She is really tall and really skinny. She weighs 13 lbs & 5 oz and is 25 inches tall. They say that they are supposed to double their birth weight by 4 months but she still has a couple of pounds to go. Its such a blessing that she is healthy and gaining weight. She still fits in most of her 0-3 month clothes but has gotten too long for most of her onesies.

They did say that she has a case of eczema so I'm putting lotion on her 5 to 6 times a day and if that doesn't make it better in two weeks then they will put her on a steroid cream.

She started rolling over this week and is really starting to enjoy tummy time which she has loathed up until now. She laughs all the time and has really started finding her voice, which is so stinking cute. She also loves to chew on everything including my face. :) Every time I try to put my face next to hers she tries to eat it.

Ok, here is what you (the moms :)) were waiting for, the pictures :)


  1. She is so cute! I cannot wait to see her next month! Of course I am also looking forward to seeing you and Jona again too :-)

  2. Mrs P. I love the "Ducky" pants - I know a couple of babies in our church that would love a pair of Ducky pants - where did ya get them? Penny is a real cutie - I hope you are getting your rest. The LORD be with You and J as you both train little Penelope in the way she should go... Much love to all three of you!

  3. She is growing up so fast! God is gracious and good! Jona and you are doing a great job! We love you, see you soon!

  4. She looks like her daddy, so I guess it's a good thing she gets her dimensions from you:) You are going to blink and daddy will be giving her away- that's especially poignant for me right now.
    Seriously, they grow up so fast- enjoy this sweet times when they can't get away from you while they last.
    May God draw her to Himself in an amazing way and use her to change the world. Miss your happy face. Tell your hubby "hello" from the Weinbergs.

  5. Barb, I got them as a gift. I have SO MUCH ducky stuff! I love it all though! They may be from Babies R Us? Not really sure.

    I love you Oma & Sawah!!

    Chuck, thanks for your kind comments. They are always encouraging to read on here. I have to tell you though, nothing about my dimensions are tall or thin :)

  6. she's so cute! isn't it amazing how fast they grow? always makes me both happy and sad!!
