I am a Christian, writing, and running mama. I write and I run to keep my sanity and to be a better wife and mama to my family. Join me in my discombobulated journey as I try make sense of the chaos and find the balance of being a stay at home mom (SAHM) with 4 kids!
I can't believe I forgot to post Bean's 4 month update. She continues to grow healthy and strong. The doctor says that she is lean and tall and to hold off on solids until 6 months since she is doing a fantastic job with nursing. I think she is in the 90th percentile for height and the 19th percentile for weight. Bean is quite the trooper and goes on all of my errands with me. We have found, though, that as a result, she does not nap. She'll take cat naps in her carrier, but she is utterly exhausted by dinner time and inconsolable. The child needs a real nap in her crib. At this stage she is learning to sit in the Bumbo and will do it for a short amount of time. She will play on her playmat, but prefers if her siblings are nearby. If they play near her, she'll stay there longer without crying to be picked up. She is still the favorite sibling among the older kids.
