Ellie at 4 months

The month of May just flew right on by, so now I’m playing catch up with the blog…sorry for so many posts.

Technically she’s 4 1/2 months.  She’s just growing like a weed.  I guess coming from Ty who couldn’t gain weight and was diagnosed “failing to thrive”, I feel like she’s huge.  But others say she is small, I think they are crazy :).  According to the doctor charts, she is tall and skinny.


Weight: 14lbs (50%)

Length: 26” (95%)

She is rolling over both ways, and already trying to pull herself up onto her knees…it’s the beginning of the end.  059Her first roll over moment.  She’s so proud.

She had her first taste of rice cereal, and loved it…sort of.  Well, she made some funny faces, but at least she swallowed it.  164She thoroughly enjoys the “Johnny Jump Up”166

She loves her big brothers, but she’s especially fascinated with Easton…probably because he is never farther than 5 inches away from her face.204

She is a pro at holding her bottle and has been for a while.007

She has managed to completely wrap daddy around her finger 019197003082

And then there’s the hair.  Those that know us know my boys hair is pure madness.  They each have FOUR cowlicks.  Ty’s hair stood straight up for at least his first year of life.  This one was after we trimmed it down…that look isn’t from me styling it…it did that on its own…and there was no other option.518114080_06

I was a little nervous about having a girl with 4 cowlicks and crazy hair she would never be able to control.  Imagine my delight when I saw her for the first time and immediately noticed only one cowlick!  Wahoo!  I thought this was great maybe her hair will lay down flat…131133 Nope.

When Ellie is older and starts doing her own hair, I know the day will come when she will complain to me about her cowlick.  And I will tell her to go take a good look at her brothers hair and be grateful for was she has.  And then she will be grateful.
