4 months of Rosie

One year ago we found out you were on your way! We were told miscarriage seemed likely based on ultrasound images and here you are, our perfect little bundle. Phoebe Rose, you are just what we needed!

At 4 months you’re 24” (40th percentile and the longest Alpert baby!) 12 lbs and 12 oz (14th percentile).

You’re one happy, chatty baby and you only cry if you need something. You still hate tummy time, but you LOVE playing on the floor with Beckett and Ellia. You can scoot yourself across a room and you love sitting up in your bumbo to see what’s going on around you. 

Beckett is responsible for your deep belly laughs, he can have you giggling for a solid 10 minutes! Ellia loves holding your hands and I know she’ll be a big help when we try cereal this month since she tried to feed you Chipotle just a few nights ago! 

It’s hard to believe you’ve been here just 4 months and at the same time, hard to imagine life before you. We love you so much sweet Rosie.

Phoebe Rose 2 and 3 month update 

2 months old! You’re in size 2 diapers, weighing in around 10 lbs and are solidly in 0-3m clothing. We celebrated your first holiday this month and you completed our Ninja Turtle ensemble as a piece of pizza!

3 months! You’re 11.5 lbs and busting out of your 0-3 month clothing (you have some string bean legs!) You will be in 3-6 month in no time!
We went on our first family trip this month and we drove. Much to our surprise, you did an amazing job sitting in your car seat for so many hours (40 in all) on end! You saw the Grand Canyon, Legoland, San Diego Zoo, Palm Springs and you met your great Aunt Julie in Albuquerque, NM! We drove through Utah, Arizona, California and New Mexico. You’re practically a seasoned travelor.
You are the dream baby we never knew we needed and we love you so much, Phoebe Rose!
