4 months

Miss June turned 4 months on the 22nd of this month. She is a happy little bug! She weighed in at 15 lbs 1oz. which puts her in the 85% and she is 25.5 in. long which puts her in the 93% (no surprise there!). Her head was in the 97%! HOLY COW THAT IS A BIG BRAIN! She is thinking about dropping her late afternoon nap and no longer needs to "top-off" before bed. She is growing so big! She sleeps 12.5 hours every night. 7pm to 7:30am which makes mommy and daddy very happy.

She is starting to reach for things and gets frustrated when she can't grab the thing she wants most.  She doesn't do too many tricks yet. She can roll from her tummy to back and can sit up pretty well supported. I think she is going to be an early sitter like Kelsi and hopefully a later crawler like her big sissy too! We can all hope! She is showing a lot of interest in what we are eating. Today she watched my PB&J sandwich intently and every time I put it down she would smack her lips, so I may start her on cereal soon.

June LOVES her big sister Kelsi and is just overall, a super happy girl.

We received the BEST news we could hope for this month.  Our PT who has been seeing June for Torticolis has taken back the diagnosis and her pediatrician agrees. June has NO tightness and no tilt to her head any longer.  My PT and another specialist I have been seeing suggested that I get a CT on June's skull to rule out craniosynotosis. They found it very odd that she had NO tightness or torticollis, but has some asymmetry to her head. Thankfully, the CT was normal.  It was an answer to fasting and prayer.  June has moderate positional plagiocephaly. The ratio of width to length of her head is normal, but she has a protrusion on the left side of her forehead.  We are evaluating her for a helmet.  We are meeting again after Thanksgiving to do more measurements to see if a helmet would be beneficial.  It is purely cosmetic, so insurance will not cover it. It is a pricey service, but one that I think I am on board with if needed. Nothing but the best for my little bug!
