Our Love

With Valentine's Day quickly approaching I just had to have a little photo shoot so Harlow could send Valentine's out to our family and her little friends.

I'm so happy with how they turned out!

I'm totally being that mom, but come on she's gorgeousssssss!

Heart Shaped Everything

It's time for another holiday and another 1st for Harlow! I'm loving all the hearts, pinks and reds. Here are some of my favorite finds for my little lady. 

                                       Love one piece                                                    #Adorable

                                                  Heart Sunnies                                                           Flower Crown

                                      Here and Here                                                   Heart Garland

The heart sunnies kill me. Also, I LOVE Ryan and Wren headbands and this floral crown is perfect for spring and summer. I'll be revolving her Easter dress around this headband! I came across the heart garland during my weekly peruse around Target and it's only $3. We had a little Valentine's Day photo shoot with it and it also looks super cute hanging in her room. And lastly, I love giving a book for each holiday and writing a little message inside for when she's older.

4 Months

Weight: 14 lbs. 8 oz. (62nd percentile)

Length: 25 1/4 (80th percentile)

Size (Diapers, Onesies, Etc.): Still size 1 diapers and wearing 3/6 and 6 month clothing.

Eyes: The peditrician said they will stay blue, which makes sense because mine are green/blue and her dad's are blue.

Hair: So much blonde hair, I swear it's getting lighter every day! I'm loving it!

Sleeping: At 3 months she started sleeping more at night so we moved her to her room (still in her bassinet because she slept so good in it). She is now in her crib. It took two weeks for her to get use to it. She would wake up around 1/2 a.m and then again at 5/6 a.m. We are finally back on track to waking up around 4:30 and 5 a.m. Sometimes she wakes up around 2 a.m. but we put her pacifier back in and she goes right back. She takes 2 hour naps in the morning and in the afternoon.

Eating: During the day she eats every 3-4 hours. Drinking 5 oz. 

Milestones: Survived her 1st cold (mom and dad were nervous wrecks). Transitioned her to her crib. She found her feet. She plays with toys, especially mister fox on her activity mat (actually hitting and grabbing at it). Her most favorite toy is her ring o'links oh and grabbing my hair :| Everything is starting to go in her mouth -- hands, toys, bibs lol. Rolls over belly to back AND back to belly! It is so easy to get a giggle out of her --  especially when we kiss her cheeks or tickle her. She owns the Bumbo, it's so funny watching her sit in it. She loves watching herself (and videos of herself) on my phone. Always notices the TV, she loves the colors and movement.

Memorable Outings: Traveled to Tangier for her 1st Christmas and got her ears pierced. 

Loves: Bath time, laying on her play mat, jumperoo, and to be rocked before naps and bedtime. 

Hates: when I clean her nose.

Words/Sounds: Baby talk all the time, especially during play time or when we talk to her. 

Nicknames: Lolo, Harley, stinky head. 

Funny Moments: When we were driving home for Christmas and realized she would only fall asleep listening to Taylor Swift.

3 and 4 Month Faves

This whole 'toys for babies' thing is a lot harder than I thought, I'm so lost when it comes to that stuff. Before Christmas Harlow had one rattle and a Sophie the Giraffe, that was it. Thanks to our family she now she has a better stock in baby toys. Here are a few things that Harlow has been enjoying these days. 

                                  Sophie the Giraffe                                                              Bumbo

                                       Ring O'Links                                                           Oball Rattle

                                       Cloth Book                                                      Twilight Ladybug 

                                Skip Hop Activity Gym                                                     Jumperoo 

A few notes on some of the above items:
-The Twilight Ladybug is so cute. We turn this on at night and Harlow just stares at the ceiling looking at all the stars.

-The Activity Gym really helps with encouraging her to roll over. She is rolling from belly to back but hasn't quit figured out back to belly. She's sooo close! 

-For Christmas my mom and dad gave Harlow the Jumperoo. I thought she was too young for it and we may have to wait another month before she could really use it but she does great in it. Her feet do not touch the floor yet, so she basically stares and talks at all the little animals. She has really good back and neck strength, so I wouldn't suggest it until that is established. 

Hope this helps and any of the above would make a great baby shower gift!
