4 months

Meredith is 4 months old today!  We don't go to the doctor until next week, so I don't officially know her stats, but according to my scale and measuring tape she is 16.5 pounds and 27 inches long!  According to what I found online, she's in the 90th percentile for weight and over 97th percentile in length!  We'll see what the nurse/doctor calculates next week.

At 4 months, Meredith:
 - has rolled over twice from stomach to back
 - is eating (5) 7oz bottles a day - pretty much every 3 hours from 7:30am to 7:30 pm.  We'll be starting solids next week after the doctor's appointment!
 - squeals when she's excited.
 - has found her hands and they are constantly in her mouth.
 - is drooling like crazy!
 - kicks her legs A LOT.  I took video of her tonight laying on her stomach and she is still kicking her legs and moving around.
 - does not like to lay back in your arms or in her seat.  She is always trying to pull herself up to an upright position.
 - barely fits in size 3 month clothes and just started wearing some size 6 month pajamas this week.
 - is wearing size 2 shoes as of today.
 - loves for me to sing "My God is so big" and do the hand motions with her.
 - hates her baths.
 - still loves to be swaddled at night when going to sleep.

Below is the comparison picture of Mackenzie and Meredith.  By 4 months, Mackenzie had really started to gain the weight, so I can really see the similarities between the girls in these pictures.
