4 months!

Elise went in for her 4 month appointment today.  Healthy as a horse!  Weight: 17 pounds 12 ounces (she did have her cloth diaper on when they weighed her, so I'm guessing that she's closer to the 17 pound mark)  Length: 25 inches (she really hasn't gotten much longer since last month)

Our camera is out of commission, so I took some pictures with our computer.  The quality is horrible, but at least we have the 4 month red chair pictures on record.

One of our few family photos (pretty pitiful, huh?)

Elise is so alert and interactive now.  She wants to be carrying on a conversation, in baby talk of course, most of the time.  She loves her bouncy seat that we have hung from the door frame.  Although I've started limiting her time in it because she now wants to jump when we stand her on her feet anywhere else.  She did turn over once this month!  It was an accident, but it was still VERY exciting.  She rewards anyone who talks to her with a big smile.  Actually she will smile at people even if they aren't even paying her any attention.  When she lays on her belly she can easily push up onto her arms and look around.  She loves anything and everything to be in her mouth.  She drools  profusely.  She will grab anything within reach, so I've had quite a few hairs pulled out of my head.  She loves playing with Dane's facial hair.  I think because of the rough texture.  When we're outside the trees and leaves always captivate her attention.  She wakes up once a night to eat.  She usually takes 2 naps a day.

We are blessed with a very sweet  and happy baby.  It's fun to see her personality being revealed more everyday.
