All About Mia~Months 4 & 5

Months four and five have brought us a fully interactive, engaged in her world, growing before our eyes little darling. Mia is officially 25 inches long and just over 14 pounds...can you imagine gaining 4 inches and doubling your weight in 4 months? No wonder she's so hungry! Her 4 month check up went well except for one little concern: asymetric leg creases. You know those pudgy little fat rolls on a baby's legs? Well who knew that if they are not symetrical on both legs it may indicate a hip problem requiring braces or possibly surgery? So we made the trip no parent wants to All Children's Hospital. An ultrasound revealed that Mia's hips are perfectly formed ~ thank you God! At four months Mia loves: dancing with her daddy, playing on the floor, grabbing her toys, sucking her toes, smiling at that cute baby in the mirror, watching her brother play, swimming in the pool, and listening to Ella sing and play with her. Oh, and she also started sleeping in her own room which was a milestone for Mommy more than it was for Mia! I kept telling myself it was really convenient having her right next to me for her early a.m. feeding, but more than anything, it was really hard to let her go :-( She's growing up so very fast.
We have had a lot of fun getting Mia out and about this month...

Mommy and me: our first all day mall day. Loved it!

We poured on the sunscreen and headed to Sand Key Beach for Mia's first family beach day.

Little bathing beauty~ Thank you Keesha for the awesome beach ensemble!

Just tuggin' along in my first dip in the pool...the water's great!
