Photo Friday!


I figured I would triple up on since I have a few extras from the past couple of weeks.


This is how she sleeps – so cute with her hands behind her head

Happy girl!

Lilian turned four months on Friday. Where has the time gone?!?!

She is full of personality and changes every day! She continues to reward everyone she sees with her gorgeous smile, and has a very sweet and easy-going disposition.

She has mastered the art of grabbing an object and bringing it to her mouth so she should be ready to feed herself by the time she is old enough for solids!   She has also developed an affinity for Sophie the Giraffe and tends to use her as a pacifier these days, as she has little use for an actual pacifier.

In addition to being able to eat anything she can get her little paws on, she has mastered the art of rolling tummy to back and still loves to stand with assistance.  She also managed to get her toes into her mouth this month.

She does seem to be a bit more like her brother than we originally thought.  She fights naps just like he did, and is less and less content to sit in the swing and bouncy seat, preferring to sit up in the high chair where she can see what is going on around her.  She doesn’t want to miss anything!  Unlike her big brother, she continues to be a good night sleeper, and has decided that her bedtime most nights is around 8:30.

At her 4 month appointment today she weighed in at 13lbs, 4 ozs (50th%), was 26 inches long (95%) and her head is 41.5 inches in circumference (50th%). She is growing very consistently!  We are truly enjoying watching our sweet girl grow!

One of these days I will play around in iMovie and learn to edit videos. In the meantime I give you two separate, unedited videos. Please excuse Jacob’s whining at the end of the first one…we are working on that!  Whining aside, I love how sweet he is (if a bit confused with the whole idea of lactation!) in trying to feed his baby sister. If only we could really get her to drink from a bottle!

I took this picture of Lilian sitting in her high chair last week and it reminded me of a similar picture I took of Jacob when he was around the same age.



A few things to note:

1. Man, that high chair was clean!

2. Jacob was not only strapped into his chair, but had the infant head support in place as well.  Lilian is lucky if we make sure the tray is attached properly before dropping her in there so she doesn’t fall out.

3. Jacob had a lot more hair.

This is actually a couple of weeks old, but I thought it was worth sharing as it gives you a view into our sweet baby girl’s personality.

Yesterday the weather cooled off a bit and we were able to go out and play a bit more comfortably.  Jacob decided to mark the occasion by pedaling his bike by himself for the first time!




Lilian cheered him on from her perch in the stroller.
