May 12, 2012

Ella is now over 4 months old!  She is growing soooo fast.  She went for her 4 month check up and has doubled her birth weight already.  She is about 15.5 pounds and 26 inches long.  She is now allowed to eat rice cereal and loves it! 

Since my last post, Ella has done quite a lot.  She is now able to roll over front to back and back to front.  Although she doesn't always roll because she seems to be a lazy baby and stops halfway and falls asleep!  We have found a way to lower her little car walker and she can get around pretty good backwards already.  It's amazing to see how much she has learned. 

We are still working on sign language and really hoping she'll be able to do it around 6 months.  I think she understands a lot already.  When she's really upset after a bottle because she wants more, I can see the "more song" to her from her sign language video and she will just sit and smile while waiting for another small bottle. 

She is still a wonderful baby and rarely cries.  I don't know how we got so lucky, but it was like winning the lottery.  We love her sooo much!  Tomorrow is my first mother's day and she got me a picture for my desk and a new phone cover.  She's pretty darn sweet :)
