On or way to Arizona we stopped at the Hoover Dam! It was way fun...
but very windy, Ellie was not impressed even in her stroller!
The best part had to have been the song that my niece made up about the Dam! It went something like, dam dam dam dam dam I like the dam dam dam! She is very creative! More to come with the Arizona trip!
Finally! Ellie's blessing was a month ago and I have been meaning to go get her pictures taken. I'm just a little slow. My mom made this beautiful dress, I'm so spoiled by the talented women in my family!
We are happy to say that we have survived acid reflux and colic! The doctor says it will magically get better in the next month and I am hoping he isn't lying to me. Here is my list why 4 months is looking up for us.
Finally sleeping in her own bed! (Except when Jacob is working and I get lonely)
By the way i swore she would never sleep with us...but you do what ya gotta do!
We have made it to every 4 or 5 hour night time feeding!
Rolls from back to front!
She is content eating her fingers and then gaging herself!
The angry colic cry has changed to the I can't believe you looked at me cry! (Which means Jacob has retired the ear plugs and I am not concerned about going deaf at an early age anymore.)
Loves baths! Hates lotion.
No longer a motion junkie, only at nap and bed time is motion required!
Strangely she is calmed by her feet being slapped.
She thinks monkey feet jammies are funny! (As do I)
Smiles when she toots!
Hopefully next month our little cry baby is our little only cries when tired baby!
While at Sizzler with my mom and Jacob, I was reflecting on how a few months ago I could not fit into a booth. It was a nice feeling for about two minutes until Ellie wanted to be held. And the just like a few months earlier Ellie and I had a hard time fitting into the booth! So not to be cliche but this year I would like to loose my Baby Bump! I know that this term refers to pregnant women, but it should refer to women who just had babies! It's not that we are fat (ok maybe we are) we just have left over baby bump! At least Ellie took the chubby checks!
