We hit our 4 month mark on Wednesday and our little monkey is just a happy happy baby. At her doctor's appointment she got a clean bill of health and the doc remarked on how strong she's getting. she weighed 11 lbs 13 oz, was 24 inches long and her head was 39.5 cm around. She's in the 15th percentile for weight, 45th for length and 7th for head circ. She's a petite little one for sure. I call her my little pinhead baby. But small head or not, she's a smart little thing -- her eyes are always looking and taking everything in. She's started taking her chupa chup out of her mouth and putting it back in and her smiles are to die for. She's still working at rolling and enjoys having her tummy tickled. This picture is what happens when Daddy is home with the camera and the baby. A little drummer girl. We had an eventful holiday weekend. Our friends Shawn and Laura were in town so we threw them a BBQ baby shower at our house. Ruby really seemed to enjoy all of the new faces to look at and even got to spend a little time with her pal Hank. She also enjoyed having a playdate with Laura's little boy even though she was asleep and the baby boy was in utero. But hey, they live in Atlanta they take every chance they get. Ha! Grandma Genie left on Friday and we are all feeling the void. She misses her baby and we miss having Grandma around. Hopefully, we will get to see her again really soon this summer. We are trying to figure out a way to get to Pocatello to visit Grandpa Gary as well as to see Mr Jack who will be there as well. So many plans! So little time! Well, that's it in a nutshell for now!
