I Am 4 Months Old!!

Hi Everyone!  I am 4 months old today.  Let me tell you all I can do.  I can stand for long periods of time now with minimal help.  I've got a really strong grip, whatever that means.  I can rollover and I can kinda scoot.  I am all over my crib, so Mommy and Daddy wrap me up tightly in my swaddler so I can't move.  I talk....A LOT.  Sometimes I just can't help myself.  

I am just over 14lbs now and I'm transitioning to 3-6 month clothes.  I'm going to get my shots on Thursday - ouch - and then I will find out how tall I am.  I'm pretty tall compared to the rest of the kids at school.  Sometimes they are mean and take toys from me because I am the youngest one and I'm not mobile yet.  I don't fuss much and the other parents call me an Angel.  They are jealous that I sleep 12 hours per night.  When I do wake up, I sing really loudly to let Mom and Dad know that I am awake and ready for some food.   Mom and Dad laugh at me when I sing...I don't know why....they both sing too.  I have noticed that when Mommy sings, Daddy makes horrible faces.  I don't think he's a fan of her singing.

Here I am at 4 months old!  I think the blue eyes are staying!  My Grandma Welch sent me this cute outfit for Valentine's Day!

I really love sitting in my Bumbo chair.  Mom can work in the kitchen now while I play in it.  There's a tray that attaches and she puts my toys on it.  I sometimes throw them on the floor and make her get them....teehee.

Here I am taking a bath.  I have grown to love my baths.  I can't wait to use the pool this summer!!!  What a lucky baby to have her own in-ground pool!  I hear Landon is a champ on the diving board.

I love playing with my rubber ducky and toes in the bathtub!  Grandpa and Grandma Dagenais just brought me back a new Donald Duck rubber ducky from DisneyWorld!  Donald is dressed up as a pirate, but don't tell Landon!!!

Here I am attempting to crawl.  All I can do is scoot a little so far!

My Cousin is Here!!!!

My cousin, Brock Daniel Witt, was born on February 20 at 12:54pm.  He was 7lbs 11ozs and 20.5 inches long.  Almost the same as me when I was born!!  We all went to the hospital after work/school to see him.  He was soooo little!  I cannot believe I was ever that small!  Oh, and if you are wondering about the name...it has NOTHING to do with the crazy guy we call President right now.  It is spelled totally differently....or so I am told.

Here's Brock.  He's super cute.

My Auntie Jen, Uncle Brady, and Cousins Landon and Brock!

Mommy with Brock.  I didn't get jealous at all!

Here are all of Grandpa and Grandma Dagenais' grandkids.  Aren't we a cute bunch?  I look huge compared to Brock!

My First Valentine's Day!

Can you believe it?  My first Valentine's Day!!  Mommy doesn't let anyone who's not blood related to me to babysit yet.  Since my main babysitter, Auntie Jen, was super duper pregnant on Valentine's Day, I got to go with Mommy and Daddy on Valentine's Day for dinner.   I was an angel and didn't make a peep!  Mommy got a pretty locket necklace.  Daddy got dark chocolate covered strawberries delivered to him at work on Friday!  He was so embarrassed!  

Here I am sporting my Valentine's Day outfit!

Mommy took 100 pictures of me!  I was losing my patience in this picture.

Look at what I made at school (aka daycare) with a little help from my teachers.  Mommy and Daddy were so surprised to see my work of art!

I Am 3 Months Old!!

Well hello!  Would you believe that I am going to be 3 months old on Saturday??  I just hit the 12lb mark and I'm now 25in long!  

I started daycare on the 14th of this month and I just love it.  I foot painted last week and made my first work of art.  I love going on buggy rides in the afternoon with all of the other kids.  It's really nice to be in the daycare at Mommy's work.  She comes down to see me at lunch and also feeds me.  

Here I am in the beautiful sweater and hat that my Grandma Welch made for me.  I just got it today and I had to try it on immediately!

Here's another picture of me in the sweater and hat from my Grandma Welch.  I feel so pretty in it...and warm!!!

Here I am all bundled up for the Mustangs/Lacers hockey game.  Mom brought me with to the game to show me off.  It was fun, but of course I slept.

After Christmas Chillin' with Daddy!

We have just been chillin' out since Christmas. I had my 2 month check-up today. I am 23 3/4 inches long and in the 95th percentile for height! I am also now 10 pounds and 10 ounces, which is the 50th percentile for weight! I had THREE shots in my thighs...ouch. Did I ever cry - good thing Dad was there! Then I got a fever this evening and I didn't feel so good.

Anyway, I am a healthy, happy baby so far! I moved into my crib a few nights ago and I sleep through the night fine. I don't cry when my Mom and Dad lay me down to go to sleep. I'm a big girl and I can handle being alone in my own room without crying like a baby! Mom calls that, "First Child Syndrome"....both Mommy and Daddy are first children, so I will be strong and independent just like them!

Here's a picture of me with Daddy. We were working on our computers. My computer is an iPhone for now.

I have to confess, Daddy downloaded that CleanMPG page for me. I totally don't care about gas mileage!

Christmas Day!

I'm back! It is now Christmas Day! Everyone came over to Grandpa and Grandma Dagenais' house. I even got to play the White Elephant game. I got a dolly! I think the game was "fixed".

Here I am in my new Bumbo that I got from Mom and Dad!

I gave Landon a guitar for Christmas. He doesn't really understand how to hold it yet.

I'm 2 Months Old! It's Also Christmas Eve!!

Merry Christmas! Well, I am 2 months old today AND it is Christmas Eve! What a wonderful holiday!! I had so much fun with all of my family. There was also another little baby even smaller than me at Great-Grandpa and Great-Grandma's house! I got a little jealous at first and started bawling really loudly when they introduced us to each other.  

Here's me in my Christmas dress!
