My little Mia Moo

My little Mia is now 4 months old (and has been for a few days now). I haven't been very good at posting milestones or any growth info about her for posterity purposes so I'd better do a little of that now. If Mia would have been our first child and Easton the second, I probably would have never made it through! Mia is just the best little girl ever. She is following family tradition by sticking to the 90th plus percentile in all her measurements thus far. At her 4-month check up she weighed 16 lbs. 5 oz. (90th percentile) and was 26 1/2 inches long (96th percentile). She has the cutest little chubby thighs that her mama is proud of. :0) This girl is serious about her food! She eats every three hours on the nose and is drinking 5-6 oz. these days. She also likes to play with her rice cereal. Mia has rolled over from her back to her stomach once so far but it was probably an accident since it hasn't happened again. She goes to bed anywhere from 7:30 to 8:30 at night and will usually give me the wonderful gift of sleep until 5:00 or 6:00 in the morning. Last night when I was planning on a long night (since she had shots) she slept from 7:30 pm to 6:00 am. This would have been the perfect night if Easton wasn't up all night with a horrible cough! We just love having a her around. Hopefully at some point her mama will figure out how to tame that wild hair!!! :0)

She is adorable! I know what you mean about a mild tempered girl. I might have actually considered another one if I could guarantee the exact same personality as Camberlyn, but I know that wouldn't have happened. I love Mia's hair. We are finally able to do something with Camberlyn's. I seem to like little ponies the best.

Great picture Jess! I love her brown eyes.

So cute! I wouldn't know what to do with that much hair on a little baby. My girls don't get that much hair until they are at least 18 months!

She sure is cute...looks like her mama!

Tia said...

Don't tame the wild hair. It's awesome.

Mindy said...

Wild hair is better than no hair! I can't believe she's already that old! I hate that the first year goes so fast!

She is so dang cute! I love her wild hair- She looks like she's got some style! Those big eyes are to die for! She is just beautiful!

I fully agree with Christan. There must be something about this round of children. Lexie is as amazing as Mia (sleeping) and Cutler is a little hooligan.
