Aren't they cute in stripes?

It has been so fun watching these two bond.  Oliver just adores Emelia, and has all along.  Emelia is starting to really like her big brother too.  No one can make her laugh like Ollie does.

Unfortunately for us, Emelia is usually laughing the hardest when Oliver is acting really obnoxious.  Sometimes I don't know what she is laughing at, Oliver being silly, or how annoyed And and I are!

Emelia has recently found her feet!  So fun...

Her new favorite game is to raise her legs as high as she can (kind of like in this picture) and then slam them down on her mattress as hard as she can.  This makes her whole body bounce.  I can hear her up there squealing in delight every time she does it and it cracks me up. 

Except for the fact that she is supposed to be sleeping.

On the topic of sleeping, last night Emelia stayed asleep until 2:30 am, I fed her and then had to wake her up at 6:00 am to feed her before I got ready for work.  I've (we've) been getting up at 12:30 and 3:30, so this is a step in the right direction.

Which makes us all very happy.

A quick status update

Emelia is now 4 months old.  My how time flys.

Her 4 month well baby check up was this week and my goodness how she has grown!  (but we new that, she is already wearing size 9 month clothes!)

She has grown 5 inches in her 4 short months which puts her at 26 inches
(95th percential.  My child in the 95th percential for height.  Ha!
Guess we have her Papa to thank for that!)

She has also gained a whopping 9 lbs!  She weights just over 16.5 pounds and is right above the 80th percential!

I'd been feeling guilty lately about not blogging as much, until I realized that I'm spending my free time outside of work playing with my kiddos.  Definately more important than blogging, but I love this record... so I'm working to keep at it.

Emelia is a much happier baby than she was a couple of months ago.  She spends most of her awake time cooing, babbeling and blowing bubbles.  She tolerates her brother tremendously (he is still a bit overbearing when it comes to her!) and thinks he is pretty funny most of the time.  Except when he picks her up and drops her!  Oops!

She is happiest when she is outside, being held or playing in her exersaucer.  She can scoot around on her back (very quickly--especially in her crib!) and we are working on sleeping through the night. 
So far, so good.
I'll keep you posted.
