4 months (and 1 week!)

Here is our monthly picture that is getting harder to take since she wants to grab and hold the sign!

I'm a week late with our 4 month update...but it was worth the wait because we have lots of exciting new things going on. Caroline had her 4 month check up and shots on Wednesday, and here are her stats:

Weight: 13 lbs, 6 oz (50th percentile)
Height: 25 in (75th percentile--she grew 3 inches in 2 months!)
Head circumference: 16 in (50th percentile)

Here are some new developments (it's hard to keep track because it seems like they happen almost everday!)

*She has found her feet and loves to grab them (especially when Mommy is changing her diaper) but hasn't put them in her mouth yet.

*She will reach out and take a rattle you hand her and will also reach out and pick one up that is laying beside her.

*She loves her Exersaucer and bouncy seat and can grab the toys that hang above her. She loves to pull them and listen to the music they play.

*She is starting to get some more hair, and it's blonde--yea!

*I don't know if she will ever learn to sit up because she wants to stand all the time!

*She is starting to blow raspberries...which means lots of drool to clean up...

*She rolled from her tummy to her back on March 16 and from her back to her tummy today!

*She really seems to look at the pictures and listen to the story in the book that John or I read her every night. Hope she'll be a big reader like her Mommy was when she was little.

*People always say she's such a Gerber baby. :-)

I'm sure there are a million more things I could add if I kept thinking about it. I am so glad that I'm able to stay home with her for right now, so that I don't miss a single thing. Watching her grow and seeing her personality develop is so awesome. I have always heard that you aren't able to fathom the love you have for your children until you have one, and now I honestly believe that. I am so lucky that God blessed me with such a perfect baby. I am humbled daily by the love that I feel for her.

Here are a couple more pictures. Enjoy!

Mommy loves this onesie!

1st time in my pool...would probably be better if I could sit up by myself!

Taken after her shots. I could only get a picture of one of the band-aids since she pulled the other 2 off and tried to eat one!



She is so cute!! Seriously. Like could be in commercials cute!!! =)

Owen and Erin

She is so big! I think she looks like the Gerber baby too!!! I am glad you are doing the monthly update posts!


I didn't know you read Twillight. I think I may be a twi-mom, but don't tell anyone! I love sparkly vampires and can't wait for Eclipse this summer.
