4 month appointment

Weight 15.44 lbs,
Length: 26.5 inches
head circumference 17 inches

Next appointment is her 6 month on Sept 24th at 10:30 a.m.

Her soft spot is still there (though still small) but her HC is so much better the DR said there really isn't anything to worry about.

Little Man - freelance entertainer

Little Man was just dancing and jumping around to some 80s music in front of Lambikins to amuse her. I laughed & he turned to me and said, "I'm just doing my job to keep Fridays entertaining."

What a kid! :>

My little Lamb is getting bigger

She's starting to giggle - though I don't have very good video of it.

And she does this really funny thing where she lifts both her legs into the air and then thumps them down. It's amusing when she's awake but she also does it in her sleep and that is something I find downright hilarious!!




The other thing is her increased "story-telling" - where she gabs away making all sorts of cute sounds that Little Man sometimes thinks are actual words.

What makes me laugh the most is when, after being breast-fed, she decides she wants to have a serious conversation with my breast. So she'll grab me and then start babbling with a serious look on her face, pause, smile, babble some more et cetera.

Extremely adorable stuff!

My hilarious son

So, he opened a birthday card from T.'s parents and there was money in the card. He set the money to the side and then read the entire card out loud.

Once he had read it, he picked up the money, snapped the bills and said, "Aw sweet, I finally get to see Queen Elizabeth!"

He then added, "See I did get to see the Queen in _________ (name of our town)!"

As the Queen was in our town this month, but we did not take the kids down to try to catch a glimpse because the heat was atrocious.

Big girl bath

Tonight I was soaking in the moderately warm tub and I thought it might be fun to bring the wee girl in with me.

Had T. bring her up and carefully brought her into the tub with me and she LOVED it. All smiles and I even got 3 of her ever so elusive giggles (Little Man got one today and two earlier in the wk).

She kicked her feet and cooed and smiled and just really seemed to love it and I thought I was going to burst into tears.

I never did that with Little Man. He hated being bathed so much that I didn't start doing things like that with him until he was older (about 3 years old) because I was afraid with all his shrieking and flailing that he'd get hurt if I was in the tub with him so this was just an amazing first for me.

So my lil lambikins did an awesome job tonight.

*love*
