The big 4 monther!

Today was Ellie's 4 month check up. And I can assure all of you that I did not take the boys with me this time. Refer back to my "Serenity Now" post. I wised up and arranged for Nadia, the worlds best babysitter to come over. Love her! So, Ellie and I went to the appt and she was perfect. Here are her stats:

15lbs. 14 ounces. . . 90%
27 inches long . . . off the chart
42.3 cm. . . 75% (head circumference)

Ellie is rolling over on her left and right. Not from tummy to back. Unless her arm is stuck and it forces her back to her back.
Smiles incessantly
Has a hearty belly giggle (which usually requires me doing a circus act)
Sucks her hands whenever possible
Enjoys riding in the car, especially if she can see someone sitting by her
Sleeps from 8pm until 6am. And then back until 7:30-8am
Takes 2 naps a day. Morning nap is 1-2 hour and the afternoon is 2-3 hours
LOVES bath time
LOVES her brothers. Noah can't get enough of her. And Jackson is very proud of her.
Talks all the time
Watches Baby Einstein (aka baby crack)
Sits in her exersaucer
Doesn't love her swing
Loves to be in her Baby bjorn
Is still nursing, with a bottle or two every day
Wants to be held as much as possible
Likes to put her fingers in mommy's hair
Has enough hair to make a curl on top :)
Is wearing 3-6 month clothing. But not for long.
And has small feet. . .for a such a big girl! :)

I do realize how old the pics are, but I am feeling a bit nostalgic thinking that she is already 4 months old. So I picked these ones to remind me that she is still my little baby. :)

So cute. I can't believe she is already 4 months. Gwen is 18 months this month and it seems so weird. Nursery here she come(this sunday will be the first time). I am so excited!

It;s gone by so quickly, hasn't it. Hard to believe. What a sweet little thing. She's so cute and charming.

she's so cute. why didn't I come to the hospital again?? i am such a crappy friend. she is a tall chicka! the next super model, with a larger than average head circumference. seriously, people don't even notice that. She's perfect and cute as can be and I wish you were going to UT for Christmas. booo whore!

Ok, you ready for the mean mommy song?...

This is a link to the song and the lyrics my mom used were

A mean mamma is a person in your neighborhood, in your neighborhood, in your
A mean mamma is a person in your neighborhood.
A person that you meet when you're walking down the street....
She's a person that you meet each day!

My mom was shocked when I asked her about it, she didnt think I had been listening! :)

She's a chunk! I want to see your circus act! And you better keep her wearing 3-6 month clothes for a little longer until that new outfit gets to you! :)
