Today, Bella discovered that rolling can get her places. She got interested in the Christmas presents under the tree and rolled towards them. She then tried to open one by chewing on it and hitting it.
Bella and Mike went Christmas shopping for Tracy today. It was cold outside so we had to put her hat and mittens on. In the store, she was as happy as could be and even fell asleep so I had to keep walking around the mall so she wouldn't wake up.
We introduced Bella to solid foods yesterday and let her try oatmeal and peaches. We got some of it her mouth but most of it ended up on her. She did much better this morning with the oatmeal and really seemed to enjoy it.
We also had her 4 month checkup last week. The doctor says that she's in great health and is developing well. 23.5 inches, 11 pounds and 15 ounces.
We think that Bella may be teething. It's pretty early to start but she's showing all of the signs of teething. She drools a lot, chews on her hand and sometimes has trouble nursing. She also seems to need constant attention and cries when we leave her in her room alone for nap time.
She's also spending a lot more time on her tummy and is able to hold her head for a long time. She rolls over quite a bit now and when she can't she gets really mad. She must get that temper from Dad. She should be crawling soon!
Bella had her 2 month doctor's visit today, which meant she got all of her vaccine shots. Before she got her shots, the doctor said that she had a lot to say and that she was saying it with attitude.She cried and cried after she got them and it made her cranky the rest of the day. She has grown quite a bit and is now over 22 inches long and 10 pounds, 2 ounces.
