4 Months Old

Little Miss H is now 4 months old!  Since I last posted in mid September, we have done lots of fun things as a family of 3. We've gone apple picking at Eckerts, gone to the Zoo, to the wineries (one trip with the baby, one trip without!), to Rombach's pumpkin patch, and to Chicago! Here are a few pics from those adventures:

I have noticed such a big change in her in the past month - she is really starting to grow up and develop a cute little personality.  She squeals with excitement when she plays with her toys and makes lots of other funny sounds with her mouth.  She can roll over and grab her feet now, too, which is so adorable! 

At her 4 month check up, she weighed in at 14 lbs, 14 oz (80%).  Still a little big for her age, but mommy doesn't mind the adorable chubby cheeks and chubby thighs one bit!  We also got the 'ok' to start solid foods, so for about 2 weeks now we've been doing rice cereal twice a day.  She is actually really good with it!  She ate the whole bowl the first time we tried it and every time since.  Probably because mommy buys the yummy organic whole grain brown rice cereal :)  Also a few days ago I started mushing up some bananas into her morning cereal - and she loves it!  This diet change has made a dramatic difference in her diapers, too... which is the not-so-fantastic part of solids!  She's really a stinker now! ;)

She is just so much fun to watch and play with.  Rian and I love her so very much!  And I've loved my first month of being a stay at home mommy, too.  It has been amazing to be with her every day!!  Next up - playdates!!
