Sunday, the kids were matching so I tried to take a few cute pictures and this is what I got. Poor Bethany was hungry!
After I fed her she was a little happier.
Still not the easiest to get to smile. (Editor's note: let the record show that she gives smiles freely to her Daddy.)
Still a little tiny thing.
Bethany's 4 Month Stats
Height: 24.7in (1.7in increase in 2 months) 50th percentile
Weight: 11lbs 2oz (2lb 12oz increase in 2 months) 2nd percentile
Head: Went from 50th to 10th percentile
Milestones the last two months:
- Lots of sucking on hands, even gagging herself
- Laughing out loud
- Still good at putting herself to sleep
- Still loves ceiling fans
- Face broke out a little, possibly from mom eating too much ice cream
- Crying kicked up a notch... much louder
- Had her baby blessing
- Very stinky toots
- Every time we tickle you, you give one good laugh then get the hiccups!
- First Halloween (dressed up as a pumpkin)
- Started grasping objects
- Batting at hanging toys
- SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT 45 OUT OF 60 DAYS!
- When she didn't sleep through the night, she only woke up once around 4 or 5am.
We had my parents and sister over for dinner that evening and my mom did a cool snowflake craft with the kids.
Bethany admiring her daddy! It's amazing; whenever he speaks, he has her full attention. She sure loves her daddy!
Dan got some good laughs out of her.
Tuesday Ben's preschool had a "be there" activity. We read the Gingerbread Man, decorated cookies, then did some nursery rhymes with actions to encourage nice physical contact with your preschooler.
Yup...he still likes to make goofy faces. :)
Thursday, I had Ben's Parent/Teacher Conference. His teachers had all good things to say about him, for which I was very thankful.
Thursday was also McKenna and Bethany's well check-ups. Poor baby got two shots and was super snuggly.
McKenna's 7 year old Stats
Height: 47in (2in increase in 1 year) 35th percentile
Weight: 43lbs 4oz (4lb 14oz increase in 1 year) 15th percentile
Anna often enjoys a little nap while I drive carpool. It's really funny and cute when she wakes up and is very sad and asks to go pick up the kids with me. She doesn't realize she's slept through it and missed the whole thing.
Friday we went to Ladies Lunch at the church, I also had a song practice for something I was singing at church on Sunday. Later that night we went to Mockingjay (Part 2) with some of Dan's family thanks to our friend and past realtor Cari Moss. We went to dinner after at the Hilton Garden Inn in Layton...so good!!
Saturday we went to breakfast at IHOP with my family to celebrate my brother's birthday.
Later while I went grocery shopping, Dan hung our Christmas lights, and Dan and Ben got haircuts.
