Well the title of this post pretty much says it all. I can't believe how fast my life is flying by me right now. My little baby is already 4 months old, rolling over, eating oat cereal...sheesh. Is it true that time goes faster with each child? Well I hope it slows down a little cause I want to cuddle her as long as possible! I just love every little roll (and there are lots!) on this chick! She has been such a wonderful baby. I really can't complain about anything (except for maybe the fact that she is the snortiest thing I've ever heard--as Nate so lovingly described it's like waking up to a warthog next to you!). And just in case you are wondering...she is NOT sleeping with us...don't worry. I just pull her into my bed after her 5 am feeding every now and then and often forget to put her back ;). We all love Violet like crazy. She even puts up with her big brother and for some reason thinks he's pretty dang funny, too! Here are little miss v's stats for her 4 month well-check:
weight--14.3 lbs (64%) height--24 in (40%) head--41 cm (52%)
A pretty average little girl all around. Sawyer came with me to her well-check and I was shocked to see how much better he did than the last time I tried taking him at her 2 week. I guess my little boy is growing up too :). He made sure she knew that she had gotten 'owies' and was obsessed with her bugs bunny bandaids. He was very interested in watching the doctor look over Violet, and was happy to take the lollipop in her behalf! Sadly, I don't have any decent pictures of Violet since we got back from the Ranch, and my camera battery was dead today when I decided I needed to post this blog so I snapped a couple with our Kodak Play Sport...not the greatest quality but it'll do. We are headed to Utah for another fun week with my family this time! I'm sure I'll have LOTS of pictures when I get back :).
Sawyer is quite the little monkey. You will most often find him on top of a counter somewhere or doing some acrobatics between the couch and the coffee table!
And yes, this boy LOVES cheese...
We've also been spending a lot of time in here...as you can see it's not going so well :) He thinks it's more of a jungle gym than a potty place. But I'm just getting him used to the idea...and we have had several successful moments so far!
Couldn't decide which picture of Sawyer racing his cars in the bathroom to post...I picked this one because I just love those lips that he makes as he says 'Vroooom'...such a cutie!
And here's a little video to show some sibling love. Sawyer really just LOVES this girl. He no longer calls her 'Vat' (although unfortunately the nick name has stuck)...but now refers to her as 'Videt'. He is very concerned when she's crying or spitting up...always tells me to go get the 'bitups wag'. And if she laughs or smiles at him he is simply overjoyed. As long as we can keep him from killing her with his intensity I think these 2 are going to grow up to be great friends!
