Cecilia is 4-months-old TODAY!!!

The past month has been a busy one! Big sister Bella started school and CeCe Rose and I have been spending a lot of "mommy and me" time together. We're gearing up for our first family vacation soon and are very much looking forward to some fun in the sun. Happy 4-month "birthday" sweet CeCe Rose!

She won't have her 4-month well check until the 21st but, but here are some unofficial stats:

Height: about 26 inches (approximately, using my sewing tape measure)
**Official Height: 26 1/2" (98th percentile)**

Weight: about 16 pounds (approximately, I weigh myself and then weigh myself while holding her, not entirely accurate but close enough).
**Official Weight: 15 pounds 5 ounces (82nd percentile)**

Sleeping Pattern: I was truly blessed with two great sleepers! CeCe Rose goes to bed around 9pm and sleeps until about 5am, wakes up to eat and goes back to bed for another 3-4 hours. She cat naps in the morning and takes one long nap in the afternoon, in sync with her sister, I might add.

Eating Pattern: CeCe Rose is still nursing or taking a bottle of breast milk every 2.5-3 hours. She is very busy these days and easily distracted while eating... it's a bit of a challenge! We have decided to wait until 6-months to begin solids and will forgo the cereals to start with green veggies... yum!

Milestones: CeCe Rose is rolling and scooting all over the place. Whether it's in her crib or on her play mat, she never remains in the same spot any more. She is "talking" a lot more, too. She is now grasping things in her hands with a purpose. It's so much fun!

Friends: CeCe's crew of little friends include Zach, Tessa and Brynn and other friends from MOMS Club. Unfortunately Bella and CeCe will be saying another good-bye to our friends the Nelsons, friends of ours for about 2-years. 

Current Events: The Olympics in London (Michael Phelps won his 22nd medal, and now has 18 gold medals!), the upcoming RNC National Convention in Tampa (19 days away), early voting in Florida and the highly-debated Chick-Fil-A gay-marriage controversy. It's been a busy month!

Happy 4-Month Birthday, Cecilia Rose!

Love always,
Ian, Kim, Bella & Cecilia
