4 Months Old

     Our baby girl is 4 months old today.  I can't believe how fast the time has gone.  It seems like just yesterday that we were in the hospital holding our baby for the first time.  She has grown and learned so much in the last 4 months. We love her more and more each day. 
 She found her fingers!
 She was more interested in what was behind her than looking at the camera.
 Look at that cute face!
 She was done with pictures!
 I love seeing her after her naps.  She makes the funniest faces.
 Happy Girl!
 She has started sticking the tip of her tongue out and to the side of her mouth. 
 Clean Baby!  She loves her baths.  She loves to splash in the water and she makes herself laugh almost every night while in the tub.
 Asleep in dad's arms after her bedtime bottle.

     She has been sleeping through the night since she was 6 weeks old.  She usually sleeps 11-12 hours a night but last night she set a new record.  She went to bed at 9:00 pm and didn't wake up until 9:50 am!  Almost 13 hours of sleep.  How would it be?  When she woke up I fed her breakfast, got her ready for the day and took her pictures.  By 11:00 am she was fussy and tired again so I put her down for a nap and she slept for another hour and fifteen minutes! 
     This girl is like a clock.  She knows exactly when her three hours between feedings is up and she is ready to eat again.  She also knows exactly when it is her nap time and she will let you know that she wants to be in her crib to sleep.  
     She is getting better at rolling over from her tummy to her back.  She doesn't understand the purpose of it yet so she still doesn't do it very often.  By next month she'll probably understand that she can get places by rolling around.   
    I can't wait to see what new things she learns in the upcoming month.

 Adilynne loves the jumper.  She isn't quite strong enough yet to bounce but she loves to twirl around on her toes.
 The other night when I was feeding her the bedtime bottle she got her hands in a funny position and was holding the bottle all by herself.  I love the hand holding the bottle up from the bottom.
Such a happy baby!  I think this is one of the first pictures I have of her smiling.  Usually when I get the camera out she stops whatever she was doing.  I love that cute grin!

Adilynne laughed for the first time last Saturday night.  I need to download the video from David's phone.  I love hearing her cute giggles.  It is so fun to watch her everyday and see her figure new things out.  She is growing up way too fast but I love being a part of it.

 What a cute little duck!
     We had a pretty easy going Halloween.  During the afternoon we went and visited with my grandma for a while then when David got home from work we went Trick-or-Treating to our parent's houses.  Adilynne was really good in her costume.  I thought she wouldn't like it but she seemed to be pretty comfortable in it.  I just can't get over how cute she was in her little duck costume!  I'm glad I found it.  She might just have to dress up in it every once and a while until she grows out of it.  :)
