4 months.

*I would like to pretend that it's always easy to get good pictures of the little one, but in reality, it's ridiculously hard. Hence this set of pictures. In her defense, she had gotten her four month shots earlier in the day. That will piss anyone off...

It's been quite the month for Baby Girl. It's so fun to watch this little personality develop a bit more every day. She is so much fun! Here's what you've been up to this past month sweet girl..

  • You celebrated your first major holiday where you weren't in the hospital (Easter) and could be involved in activities. It was a great first Fourth of July.

  • You went on your first boat ride. Which you promptly slept through.

  • You still don't love tummy time. You'll put up with it for a bit longer, but it still makes you mad as a hornet if you're left on your stomach too long.

  • You've rolled over multiple times from your stomach to your back. You don't do it very often though. You'll have a day where you do it a lot, and then will go weeks without us seeing it again. You've yet to roll from your back to your stomach, but you are oh so close!

  • You are very, very verbal. You have a lot to say. You also "mimic" what we say. You make the "mamama" sound a lot. Fingers crossed that "Mama" is your first word!

  • At your appointment on your four month birthday, you weighed 16 pounds 13 ounces and were 26 inches long. You are a big girl! You are in the 97th percentile for everything. I love my big, beautiful baby!

  • You are wearing mostly six month clothing. You wear size 2 Pampers Swaddlers diapers. You eat about 5 1/2 ounces of formula every 3 1/2 - 4 hours.

  • You love your Bumbo seat. You like to sit it in the morning and watch me get ready. We just talk and talk...

  • We think you might be beginning the teething process. We had to make our first "emergency" call to the after hours doctors line. You had a fever and scared your Mama and Daddy. They said it sounded like you might be teething. We don't see anything yet.

  • You like the back of your head scratched. (Weird I know!)

  • You laugh out loud a good bit now. Still not tons, but when you get going, you can't stop! You laugh the most when adults around you are laughing.

  • You are the happiest baby. Everybody says that about you. The ladies at church get so excited when you walk in. They love cuddling and laughing with you. I have to agree.

  • You sleep from about 8:30 every night til about 6:30 in the morning. I'll take it.

  • You will now "shake" your toys that make noise. Then you stare at them like you can't believe you just made that noise! You also will pick them up yourself now off the floor.

  • Sophie appears to be your favorite toy. And you love your Lovie. You want it up by your face anytime you get tired.

  • You love to be read to. Although you're starting to get more interested in eating the pages than listening to the story or looking at the pictures.

  • You don't like to be "left out" of things. Especially dinner time. So we pull you up a chair and sit you in the Bumbo with us, and you're perfectly happy. You sure do think you're a big girl!!

  • You're eating strictly formula now. All the b*milk is gone.

  • You sat forward facing in your stroller for the first time.

  • You are amazing little one. Simply amazing.

    And because I didn't post it... Your 17 week picture.

    Oh my...watching that last video was amazing. J and E are the same baby...sucking on those fingers and making the same noises. And, come on...her rolls on her arm are almost as big as J's. They make a cute pair.
    And, can start to see a difference in their personalites...E seems so chill and gentle and girlie. J is wild, sweaty, rough boy...but, doesn't E want a man's man?!?!?! =)
