Ellie is 4 months old!

 Eliya you are 4 months old! I can't believe how fast time is going by,
you are growing and changing every day
You are 14lbs 7oz (50th %tile) and 24 inches long (30th %tile).
You are longer and leaner then your big brother at the same age *he was 15lbs 2oz and 22 inches
You wear size 2 diaper and are somewhere between 0-3 and 3-6 month clothing.
You are such a happy baby. You smile and coo ALL the time. All it takes is a smile and a "Hi!" and you get so excited. When you smile you let out a little giggle and you get so excited that you twist your whole little body!
You are ticklish especially on the neck and squeel in delight when I lotion you after bethtime each night.
You are a mama's girl and happiest with me. You still love to be worn in our sling
and your not a great fan of the stroller.
You sleep on your belly and just this week have moved to your crib.
Sometimes you sleep thru the night and sometimes you wake up. You were sleeping awesome but this last week has brought about a lot of changes, including in your sleep!
You like to nurse a lot every 3 hours or so, and you WILL NOT take a bottle at all.
This stresses mama out a bit but we will make it work!
You have been rolling back to belly since July 3rd and each day you get a bit better. This week you can also go belly to back, you can make your way right across the livingroom!
You are also creeping a bit, this shocked mama!
You love toys and your little lovies.
You won't take a paci but you love to hold and chew on a blankie.
You are so strong! You like to play in your exersaucer and jolly jumper.
But we have to be super careful because you can excape your bumbo
and sit straight up in your bouncer!
You adore your big brother and he is in love with you!
I love watching the two of you together and pray that you will grow into great friends!
Eliya, we love you so much. We aren't sure if you are the last of our babies, but if you are you certainly complete every dream we ever had.

ELiya is 3 months old!

Eliya, my sweet baby girl you are 3 months old!
Time is going by far too quickly for me!
You have turned into such a sweet and happy baby!
You started smiling in the last few weeks and it just melts me.
You smile at just about anyone willing to talk to you, and boy do you like to talk!
You coo and already "talk" to us!
We figure once you find real words your going to have LOTS to say!
You absolutely adore your brother, he gets the most smiles from you.
And Ellie does he love you! It warms my heart completely to see already the love you have for eachother, he says your his best friend and I hope it stays that way!
You are a great little eater! You still nurse every 3 or so hours during the day, and usually only once at night.
You are a great sleeper. You go to bed around 8 or 9 pm and sleep until 1 or 2 am if you wake and then again until 5:30/6:00am when you come into my bed and nurse/snuggle/sleep till around 8:30.
You have even given me 8-9 hours once or twice!
You like ot be held and worn in my ring sling a lot, you are NOT a fan of your carseat or the stroller. You sleep really well in your rock n play, I think it helps your reflux.
You wear size 1-2 diapers and will likely move to 2 when this package is done.
You wear size 0-3 month clothes and are just starting to wear some 3-6 month clothes.
Mommy LOVES dressing you up, you have far too many hairbows and for now you tolerate it REALLY well!
You won't take a Guk at all but you love to hold on to your blankies and chew on them.
You weigh 13 lbs! You've grown so much already.
You still have blue eyes which amazes us all they are so pretty. And you have the best little cheeks and an adorable dimple when you smile.
Eliya you make us feel so full and complete. You are more then we ever dreamed another baby would bring this family.
