Happy 4 Months!!!

My Baby Girl is 4 months already!! I can't believe it. I know I say that every month:) God has blessed with the most perfect little princess. We love watching her grow and develop new tricks. Here are some things that you learned to do this month:

1. You learned to roll back to belly!! You did it about two weeks ago. Twice in one day but haven't done it since. I am honestly surprised you even learned this trick with as much as you hate being on your belly.

2. You tried cereal. You are liking it more and more every day. You even finished your whole bowl last night.

3. You are still a really crappy sleeper:( Despite all my efforts and trying everything I know to try you wake up at all hours. You usually go down around 7pm and sleep until at least midnight. From there on you will be up anywhere from every 3 hrs to 5 hrs. The only thing I can't complain about is that you are only up for about 20 mins to eat and then back to sleep. The only thing left to try is formula and I won't resort to that just for some sleep.

4. Your favorite toy is Mommy and Daddy's hands. You are mesmerized by them when I hold my hand in front of your face and you love chewing on Mommy and Daddy's fingers.

5. You have started the teething process but I don't really expect any teeth for a couple more months.

6. You hold your head up like a champ. Everyone comments on what a strong baby you are.

7. You love standing up.

8. On my lap you can sit on your own for about 2 seconds. I know its not much but its a start. I can't wait until you can sit on your own.

9. You love to laugh and you thinks its hilarious when I pretend to eat your neck. You also love to laugh at your big brother.

10. You wear size 3-6 months and some 6-12 months. In onsies and sleepers you are in 6 month and about to outgrow those. You wear size 2 diaper.

Our dear baby girl we can't wait to see what kind of joy you bring us this next month.

Love Mommy and Daddy

Close Ups

I love close ups of my two kiddos. I am so thankful that God blessed me with two of the cutest kids ever. I know I'm biased.

Ali tried cereal for the first time tonight!! She has been following my food when I eat, so I figured I would give it a shot. She wasn't really a fan. She took 5 or 6 bites okay then she decided she was DONE!

All ready for my first bite

First Bite

That wasn't so bad

Okay I'm DONE!!!

Ali has discovered her fingers and she LOVES them. I really think she is already teething. She loves putting our fingers in her mouth and she slobbers a ton.

And So It Begins.....

Today Tyler decided he wanted to wear his big boy undies!!! I was washing them and he saw them. I figured what the heck. He has been showing lots of the signs. He likes to pee on the potty already and he tells us after he poops. He doesn't care if he's wet or poopy though. I am totally not prepared for this. I have one pair of undies but he was so excited to wear them that I had to go with it.

He didn't want to show me his undies

He did really good for about 2 hrs until he went outside to play. I took him about every 20 min and he went every time. He HATED having an accident in his big boy undies, so that's a good. Since I didn't have another pair to put on him, I put on one of his old cloth diapers. At least this way he could feel it if he was wet.

The Jumparoo

I put Ali in the Jumparoo for the first time today. She doesn't really care for it yet. Hopefully she will soon. Tyler never did, so I would like one of my kids to like this thing.

More Snow/Ice...

So on top of the inch and a half of ice we got a Tuesday last night we got another 4 inches of snow. Needless to say I was really bored. I don't do well with sitting at home all day. We did venture out a couple times. We found out our mini van (that everyone likes to make fun of us for) actually drives better on the ice than some of the big trucks and SUVs. HAHA, so there all you SUV snobs:) We had to take Ali to the doctor. She had been running a low fever and coughing like crazy. It turns out she had bronchilitis (sp), its the infant form of bronchitis. There wasn't anything they could do for her but I really just wanted to make sure it was RSV.

Today I decided to shovel the driveway. I was REALLY bored and I figured it would be a good workout. Tyler insisted on coming out and helping.

After I got done, we played in the snow. Its amazing how just two days ago he hated the snow and today he loved it. We made a snowman and then we had a meatball (snowball) fight we Daddy. Daddy wasn't actually participating, he couldn't get his princess hands cold from the snow. But Tyler and I had fun throwing snowballs at him. Tyler likes to call snowballs, meatballs.

This is a funny picture of Bailey. She hates the snow or anything wet. She found the one spot in the yard to poop that didn't have too much snow on it. Under Tyler's slide. She hates getting her princess paws wet just like her Daddy:)

Last night we got about an inch and a half of ICE, not snow, ice. I have never seen this much ice in our area. To make it even more fun its not supposed to get over freezing for the next 80 hours.

Its kind of hard to see but if you look closely you can see how thick the ice was in our driveway.

Tyler watching the snow from the window.

I took Tyler out for about 5 minutes. He hated it. He got snow on his shoes and kept screaming mess mess.

Warming up with Daddy by the fireplace. Tyler is obsessed with the fire. Good thing he is really good about not trying to touch it.

Miss Ali staying warm inside. My little princess is sick. You can see it all over her face.
