Let’s call it a constant state of delirium. Yep. Let’s call it that. Because I can’t for the life of me find another explanation as to why I took Remy Bea’s 4 month pictures with “three month” blocks. And I’m way too tired to retake the photos. So, here they are.

And here’s a Four Month Update:

  • She is rolling to her sides, but she hasn’t quite yet made it all the way over to her belly.
  • Still no teeth. Blah!
  • But still lots of drooling.
  • And she LOVES her hands! Last month she had started to bring her hands to her mouth and chew on them; but now she’s officially reaching for things and bringing them to her mouth! Her binky, her teething rings, my hand, and her blankets. It’s crazy to me how awesome her hand-eye coordination is!

  • OMG she laughs! Well, she giggles. And it’s a belly giggle. The cutest belly giggle you ever did see!
  • And she still loves to follow her brother and daddy around with her big eyes.
  • I can’t tell what color her eye are just yet. They look like they are turning to a dark blue/gray.
  • She’s got a teeny dimple on her right cheek! I’ve been waiting for a dimpled child!! ♥ My husband has giant dimples, but Ari didn’t inherit them. So I’m happy Miss Bea may have received the dimple gene!

  • She weighs 11lbs 6oz — which is keeping her steady on the 5th percentile for weight! Ha! My teeny peanut! She has been consistently gaining weight and is still on the curve for her weight.
  • She is 23 and 3/4 inches tall, which is the 25th percentile. Again, right about where she was before.
  • Head circumference? A completely laughable 15inches! Girlfriend isn’t even on the percentile curve for head size! However, she is on a curve for her!
  • I saved the worst of the news for last. We are awaiting blood test and urine test results. Baby Bea will not stop screaming. And before you get all “Oh yeah, our baby had colic, too,” it’s not that. It’s a painful scream. Like, a something is wrong, scream. A scream that cannot be comforted in any way, shape, or form. She will scream for hours and hours and hours on end. And nothing will comfort her. It’s heartbreaking.

So yeah. This last month was rough. But they all have been, honestly. And I’m at my wits end. My PPD has been in full swing. I’m exhausted. I’m anxious. And I’m just ready for Baby Bea to be happy. I mean, aren’t babies supposed to be happy?? Sigh. But I’m lucky to have an amazing support system (thank you, friends!!). And also? The doctors took me seriously. THE DOCTORS TOOK ME SERIOUSLY!! I was terrified that they would write me off as ‘crazy mom’. But they didn’t. Score for Mama Bear!

More updates to come! Thanks for all the love and support friends! xo
