She's 4 months old... and some other things...

So this is a couple of days late, but things have been pretty busy around here! Thursday she turned 4 months old. I can't believe it! It will be no time at all before I am planning her 1st birthday party. Gulp. And hey, notice the SMILE!! She was finally happy for a "month" photo!!

Last night when I went to check on her, I found her like this. First of all she is sucking her thumb, sigh. The girl will spit her pacifier halfway across the room and stick that darn thumb in her mouth. Lately she will even spit out her bottle to suck it. We are such failures at preventing thumb sucking in our house! But anyway, the big news here is that she has rolled herself over! I hate this stage, when they very first start rolling over. They don't quite have much control over what they are doing and it makes me nervous. So, of course I rolled her back over!
Last night, before bedtime, Caden joined his little sister under the floor gym. (You might notice he is eating his "tookies" and that he brought "Mama Frog" with him.) He laid there for a long time just talking to her.

The sweetest thing about it is that she is usually touching him when he is close to her. She always has her little hand reaching out for him. She seems to find him mesmerizing! She watches him talk to her and smiles at whatever he says! In return he finds her to be very funny and laughs at most everything she does.
There is nothing sweeter than watching your children interact in such a loving way. I know it won't last forever, so I will just enjoy it while it lasts!

Every night before bed, Caden has milk and "tookies". His favorite cookies are Nutter Butters, but WalMart was wiped out of them the last time I grocery shopped... so his father got him peanut butter Oreos. Sigh. This is the aftermath of peanut butter Oreos.
