Lydia 4 Months

Lydia turned 4 months old last Thursday. She is getting so big. We went to the Doctor on Friday. Doctors appointments are bitter sweet for me. I love to see how much she weighs, and tips and tricks from Doctor Hickie. But I hate the shots. Necessary yes, but so sad. Sophie on the other hand Loves going to the Doctor especially for Lydia's appointments she doesn't get shots but still gets a sticker at the end.
Poor thing doesn't know whats coming....
There used to be an amazing nurse there who would get all of the needles and band aids all ready and get all three shots done before Sophie even finished her first cry. The nurse they have now is very nice but man does she drag out the process. She does one shot, opens the band aid, puts it on, then uncaps the next shot, etc. Meanwhile Lyds is screaming her head off, Sophie is twirling in the corner and singing, then when Lydia starts to calm down the next shot comes and it starts all over again. Sometimes I just want to tell her "Can't we just get this over with!" Sorry for my little spiel. anyways...
Lydia is now 12 lbs 13 oz. Shockingly she is a whole pound lighter than Sophie was at this age. We have determined it is her cheeks that make her look so chubby.  She is in the 78% for her height and is 25 inches long.   Her favorite things to do are rolling over, screaming, playing with Sophie, and of course eating.
Tonight she gets to start rice! Wooho!
