Four Months Old!

We have reached the four month mark of having our Ellie with us!  This little baby is no slouch, having reached several milestones all in a month.  Not only can she roll over from her back to her tummy, she can push herself up on her arms and hold up her head!  Ellie will also play in the exersaucer for 10 to 15 minutes at a time, even if we have to snug her in there with blankets.  She also makes the "mmmmm" sound and Daddy swore she said "mama" the other day.  For Mom her biggest accomplishment is she is now sleeping through the night (most of the time)!  Ellie also celebrated her first Easter and got to meet many family members including Ma-mas' sisters Aunt Ida and Aunt Lisa and her brother-in-laws Uncle Barney and Uncle John.  

Pretty soon I am going to get on that crawling thing!
I like this new perspective!
Yesterday Ellie got a clean bill of health at her well baby check up and received three shots.  She only cried a little bit, though Mama felt like crying herself.  She weighed in at 13 pounds, 6 oz. and measured 24 inches long.  This puts her in the 34th and 26th percentiles, respectively.  I find this interesting because though she was much bigger than her brother and sister when she was born, she is in a lower percentile than both of them at this age.  However! We are extremely glad she is healthy and growing!

Fun at the park!
