4 Months and Another Birthday to Celebrate!

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I cannot believe how fast she is growing up! We have a 4-month old. Wow.
You can also see I am not one of those moms who has her act together and takes adorable pictures of her child in the same outfit or with the same background. At least we have pictures and at least they are correctly labeled. Maybe by the third child I'll have my creative act together.
  • Stats: 99% for weight, 89% for height. (17 lbs....) She’s a big girl! If it’s true that fat is good for a baby’s brain development, we may just have the next Einstein. Her chubby cheeks and leg rolls are just about my favorite thing in the world!
  • Milestones: She rolled over from her back to her stomach! She only does this over her left shoulder. I’m hoping this is just further proof we have a lefty on our hands. She also giggles all the time, mostly at her dad. We are borrowing a jumper seat from some friends and she LOVES it.
  •  Activities: She made the trip to California to meet my side of the family – uncles and aunt (who happens to have a fabulous blog – read it here), great grandparents, and lots of great aunts/uncles and second cousins. She also just traveled with us up to the Dallas area to meet her cousins! This was a big event and so fun to play with all of the little ones from age 2 to 10 days. Non-stop entertainment, that’s for sure! I don’t know what it is, but watching babies interact is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen. And last, but certainly not least, she just experienced her first trip to Sea World! This is kind of a big deal with my family. SeaWorld and I go way back.

I will definitely be posting pictures of MJ’s big summer very soon!

Until then, Happy Birthday to my wonderful Mom! I am so very thankful to have you as my mom! Thank you for putting up with me and being a wonderful example of a wife and mom who loves the Lord. I will certainly try to be the kind of mom to Michaela that you were to me! I love you!
