Charlotte is 18 Weeks!

Charlotte had her four month check-up last week.  She weighs 11 lbs 8 oz and is 24.5 inches long.  That puts her in the 25th percentile for weight and the 50th percentile for height, which is where she's been since birth.  She had to have four shots, but she handled them like a champ.
At four months, Charlotte is rolling over, sitting with assistance, and bearing weight with her legs.  She has discovered her feet and loves to play with them.  She also loves toys.  Her favorite is a plush spaghetti pot (she's playing with it in the pictures).  She is very vocal and laughs, mostly at her sister.  Everything goes into her mouth:  toys, hands, clothing and blankies, Joey's hair.  She is drooling a lot.
The doctor gave us the go-ahead to start her on solids, but we're going to wait until closer to six months or until she's not satisfied with her regular feedings.  I'm not looking forward to those diapers.
