Ava's 4.5 Month Update
Our little darling is 4.5 months old now! We had our second round of shots yesterday and she did so well! She didn't even cry! Im so glad because I was a hot mess last time we had her shots. Ava is weighing 18lbs and is 25.5 inches long. Our chunky babe is in the 97% percentile for weight! I had a billion questions for our pediatrician yesterday and felt so much better once we left her office. As I'm sure many of you moms know it is so hard deciding what is right for you and your baby! EVERYONE has such a different opinion on what you should do (even the peditricans) but every child and parent are so different. I totally agree with the "do whats best for you and your baby" but sometimes its hard to block out all the advice and leaves you second guessing yourself. We moved Ava to her nursery for the first time last night(per our pediatricians recommendation) because we are trying to wean her off her night feedings. Ava was ready to be moved but mama was not! Having a baby changes you in so many different ways. I am not a super emotional person and don't cry very often. Having a baby has softened me in way I never could have imagined. Last night before we moved her into her nursery I totally had a good cry because I was so sad for her to be moved into her room! My husband and I then had a good laugh as he reassured me it was okay and I could watch her on the monitor all night (which I did). All in all it was actually better sleep for for Ava and for us (minus my multiple wakings to check the monitor for her breathing! Hoping that will subside some in time).
