4 months

Well, Kalena was actually 4 months old on the 18th, but her 4 month appointment was yesterday. Here are her stats: 15 lbs 5 oz (84th percentile) and 26 3/4 inches long (97th percentile). So, she's a big baby. I'm not sure where she gets this because I was little. Like, teeny tiny. I'm too lazy to look up how much I weighed at 4 months, but I know I didn't weight 15 lbs! I'll post a comparison sometime.

Anyway, 4 months means we can start solids, and we decided to try rice cereal today. It pretty much went like this:

It was quite an amusing experience. She always let us spoon it into her mouth, she didn't turn her head away or anything, but she made this face every time. And then it would just dribble out of the corners of her mouth. We'll see if she likes it any better tomorrow.


  1. Just wait for the first time they laugh while eating rice cereal and you get splattered with cereal bits! She's so cute...

  2. Wow! She's giving my girls a run for their money! She's got Jordan by 3/4 of an inch. Good luck with cereal!! (We're trying too...looks like we had a little better luck!)

  3. Are you torturing that poor baby?

  4. Kalena is beautiful. What a cute little girl!!! I can't wait for her to have enough hair for BOWS!!!! WE hope you guys are doing ok with the little bit of sleep. We miss ya

  5. He he. And in reference to Katie's comment: My kids like to sneeze just as you get cereal or green bean right up to their mouth. That's freakin' awesome!
