Camryn is 4 months old!!

Camryn is now 4 months old! We've really noticed a difference in her this month. She's defnitely outgrown that clingy infant stage and is now a happy, more independent baby. She loves to play in her exersaucer and is now grabbing and batting at toys, shaking her rattles, etc. I can now put her down in her pack-n-play, or on the floor, and as long as there are toys, she's happy for about 30 min, which has allowed me the ability to clean, cook, etc. without having to hold her. She rolls all over the place and can even sit unassisted for a couple of minutes. She also loves standing up and seeing the world. She also now belly laughs, which is pretty hysterical!

Camryn also had her 4 month check up and got 3 shots and an oral vaccine, and was not a happy camper! But, we were given the green light to start solids. Her pediatrician said to skip cereal since she's already getting it in her bottle for reflux. We are going to start with green veggies first (peas and green beans), then yellow veggies (squash), then orange veggies (carrots, sweet potato). This way, she's introduced to the yucky things first. We will wait to start fruits until 6 months, so she has a solid 2 months of eating and liking vegetables.
