Four months

My amazing, sweet, wonderful little gift from God turned four months today.

Is it just me, or are the days/weeks/months flying by at a faster-than-usual pace lately?


The sweet things I want to remember about my Lola at this stage:

~You can still fall asleep anywhere.
~You have turned into a drool bug lately! Definitely time for bibs.

~You look so stinkin' cute in everything you wear--but Daddy and
Mommy's favorite clothes are onesies with baby legs and skirts.

~Daddy dresses you most of the time. *grin*

~You had your first go-around in the jumperoo today
(per Auntie Jen's suggestion)...and you loved it!
On a side note: your brothers loved watching you play in it!
~You love to be up on your changing table. You smile and coo and are always completely calm and happy while laying up there!

~You are a very happy, smiley baby (except, apparently, at Monical's pizza).

~You love to play "I'm....gonna....get 'cha!" with Colin.

~You have a huge, wide open smile (just like Colin did!)
~You are still nursing exclusively and will not take a bottle.... and if your Daddy
or your Grandma Jane tries to convince you differently, you give them fits!

~You are 23 1/4 inches long and weigh 11 lbs. 8 oz.

~You go to sleep each night around 9 and wake up promptly at 7 to eat
(and your Momma appreciates that more than you will ever know!)

~You take four 1-1/2 hour naps each day.

~You still sleep spread eagle. *grin*
~You go to bed awake and happy, and you wake up that way as well.

~You have a sweet and happy spirit 99% of the time. You rarely cry.

~When you do cry, you cry real tears now! And you have a very
high-pitched, squealing cry--almost like a shriek.

~Mommy is head-over-heels in love with you and everything about you.

~So is your {very handsome} Daddy.
~So are your brothers!

~You laugh hysterically when we say "What? What? What?" over and over!

~You don't seem to be bothered in the least with an occasional cup of cappuccino.
Thank God, 'cause there's just some mornings that this Momma needs one.

~You are starting to really become aware of things like toys, and
you are trying to pull your legs up to kick at them.

~You rolled over for the first time last Friday night,
two days before you turned four months old!

~You love chocolate mint ice cream. Oh, wait....that's your Mommy.

~Your laugh is completely precious. As is your smile.

~You are getting stronger each day! You hold your head up well, can sit up
with some support, can pull your legs up to roll yourself over.

~When it is time for bed, Mommy always says, "Do you want to watch your butterflies?" and you look up at your mobile like you know exactly what I'm talking about!

~You're hair--what little you have--is starting to grow and you sometimes
have a fuzzy bed-head look if you sleep a certain way. Cutest. Ever.

~You seem to really love our cuddle time in the give me so many smiles! I love catnapping in the early morning with you next to me.

~You have this fuuny thing--when you are almost done nursing, you start kicking
your legs to let me know. It's like your little signal that you're full!

~You still love to be worn in the sling.

~And did I mention that Mommy loves you more than you will ever know?

Happy four months, my sweet baby girl!

Oh she is soooo adorable! I LOVE that smile! Why do they have to grow up so quickly! I wish I could just freeze time!

I personally think that we should try to get together and take a picture of Lola and Tucker together this summer. You know... just in case an arranged marriage could be planned or something! They may appreciate that in the future! =)

Have a great week!

She is so stinkin' cute Dev! Seriously! I just wanna kiss those cheeks!

It is a little freaky though because Hope has pretty much the SAME exact stuff...same clothes, babylegs (those pink ones are my favorite ever) same toys, even the same boppy cover! Seriously...were we separated at birth?

We used to have a Johnny Jump Up like that! All three of my kids just LOVED it!

Your girl is so sweet! LOVE the babylegs! We didn't have any but they are just the cutest.
