4 Months!!!!

It makes me cry to even write this post...silly I know. I am way more emotional after having her than I have EVER been in my life. She is 4 months old. It seems like such a long time, 4 months. But it feels like I just blinked my eyes and here we are 4 months later. It is just so bitter sweet!

Right now she is in the living room talking (your own language of course) to what ever is on the TV because she was asleep...that also means I won't have much time to write.

* You weigh just under 14lbs. and your about 24 inches long. (yes you had a growth spurt)
* You roll over all the time from your tummy to your back but you won't roll from your back (stubborn much) but we know you can.
* You have found your feet and you love them.
* You sleep in your crib now...all night long.
* EATING- you do a lot of it...lol You have had green beans, sweet potatoes, carrots, and peas and like them all but squash was a no go. We are going to try again in a few weeks when you aren't sick anymore.
* Oh yeah- we haven't left the house much this month because we have both been sick. You had your first fever and we had to go the doctor but it was just a head cold. You are feeling much better now.
* You can wear some of your 3-6 months clothes but mostly still 0-3 months
* You laugh and talk (your version of talking) all the time...unless people are trying to listen. You seem a little shy.
* You love your exersaucer so much...you can even turn yourself around in it now.
* We finally have you on a regular schedule...the time varies depending on when you wake up but you stick to the basics pretty easy.
* You have been on a kick of getting up at 5 am and wanting to play...mom not so much but we do it anyway. (today you slept until 8 and that made me very happy)
* You always want to sit up...never lay down...I think you will be sitting on your own very soon.
* You had a wonderful Christmas.
* You have seen a TON of snow this month.


 4 months- Yes we are still in our pj's (it was early and a snow day)

Just because....

I took some pictures the other day while we were playing and think they are way to cute not to share!







Christmas with The Browns

We waited until after Christmas to "have Christmas" with Amanda and her family because me and Santa were in cahoots...lol He let me in on a few secrets about what the boys were getting so I could get them things that would go along with what he was bringing. Not to mention this year Christmas got here a little faster than normal so we ended up putting off most of our celebrating until after the actual holiday. Here is a taste of Christmas at the Alcorn/Brown celebration: 






Dinner and a couple card games later we tried their new video games...now I want a Kinect...if for nothing else than to exercise (man that was a workout for me at least)
