4 months and a rough past week and a half

Well, I started this blog almost a month ago, and have to follow through so here goes. It's about her 4 month appointment even though she is now 5 months :) Geez....I'm not very good about this.
Peyton had her 4 month appointment last Tuesday, and I'm so glad that is over. She didn't react very well to the shots this time. She ran a fever for 5 days, and I eventually called the doctor and he said it wasn't normal so I should take bring her in. So, we spent our Saturday at the walk-in clinic so that the doctor could tell us that he didn't see anything wrong. She still wasn't feeling well so I took her back to my doctor who finally concluded that she must have some kind of viral infection. She definitely feels better now, but she is hoarse so she sounds so funny.

We started the "cry it out" method a few weeks ago and it was definitely not fun, but Peyton seemed to adjust more and more each night. Well......that has all changed. I don't know if it is because she was sick or because we went to San Angelo, but she SCREAMS bloody murder every time we put her in her crib now and it lasts for what seems like an eternity. We are sticking with it, but it is so frustrating because I thought it was supposed to get better, not worse!!

Here are Peyton's 4 month stats:

Weight: 12 lbs 11 oz (50%)

Length: 24 in (50%)

Head: 40 cm (25%)

Since she is now 5 months (at the time I'm finishing this post....I'll update her likes/dislikes in that post)......

Daddy getting her started early.
Not so sure at first....

Hmm....I actually could like this

My first horse ride at the ranch.......I'm sure it will be many more to come!

When Ryan and I were driving around the ranch, we came across this little girl all by herself. She couldn't have been but a few days old and her momma was no where to be found. We eventually found her mom, but for some reason her mom wouldn't nurse her, so we named her "Nugget" and bottle fed her for a few days. I'm happy to say that her mother finally came through and now Nugget is doing just fine.

Here is a picture of Peyton the first time we put her in the jogging stroller without the carseat.

Yay mom....this is fun!

Just woke up....

St. Patrick's Day

Always so serious....I can't imagine where she got this from!

Working on our tummy time. She is getting where she likes it better, but still definitely prefers to be on her back.

Going on a walk.....trying out my hat for the first time.
