ELLA GROWS!! 4 Months!!

She is getting so big.  Make it stop!!  We had Ella's four month appointment this week and she is right on track.  Her three developmental milestones were reaching for objects, laughing and trying to roll over.  Now we have to work on rolling over, sitting with assistance, switching a toy from one hand to the other and making consonant sounds.  Bring on the "mama"!!

Ella's Stats:

Weight:  12.98 lbs      36th percentile
Height:  24.5 inches     61st percentile

Her growth has slowed down, but Dr. Terry said that she was not concerned. She is eating and sleeping perfectly.  We get to start rice cereal at 5 months and then veggies.  Hopefully the rice cereal will help with the amount of blowouts that this child has.  I didn't know something so little could poo so much!

Ella is going to bed at 8pm and waking up around 7am.  She takes 4 naps a day but is increasing her awake time between each nap.  I am trying to find new things to do to keep her entertained.  She loves to  sit in her stroller and walk around HomeGoods (Mommy likes that too), jump in her jumparoo, watch Chloe and Lola, sing songs and blow spit bubbles.  She especially loves when daddy sings rap songs to her.  Awesome. 

Here's a couple pictures from Month 4!

Ready to roll!

Reesie decided Ella needed a hug.  Ha! 

We love this little girl so much and are so excited to see what month 5 will bring.  Hopefully less drooling.  :)

My cousin is having a baby boy so Grammie and I packed up the nugget and drove to Hutto for the baby shower.  I had tons of fun shopping for Sandy and the new baby and bought her some stuff that Ella really loves even though it wasn't on her registry.  Ooops!  She can take it back if little Wyatt or William (they haven't decided on a name) doesn't need it. Ella did really well on the drive down and we only had to stop once to feed her.  She screamed when I put her back in the carseat but it only lasted a couple minutes.

I have a ginormous family and Ella got to meet them all!

Sweet Avery and Hailey

Ella slept great in her pack and play even though Grammie was snoring the whole night!  We were able to meet up with with my dad on Sunday and then headed home.  We stopped for lunch at Lone Star Cafe in Hillsboro and Ella had to watch a couple make out the whole time at their table while she was eating.  She better never do that or her daddy will have to kick some booty!
