4 Months and Counting

Weight: 15 pounds 6 ounces
90th percentile
Length: 26 inches
95th percentile

Did ya hear?!?! Leyla has 2 teeth! (I only took about 50 pictures trying to get a shot of them...don't mind the crazy eyes this was the best picture of the teeth!)

She continues to love baths, they're just getting wetter and wetter (for mom) as she learns to splash a little harder each time.

She loves baths so much that her mom can't help but let her stay in until the water starts getting cold and her feet wrinkle up. (Her piggies are quite ticklish)

She's starting to like baby food and it's a good thing, too, because I love feeding babies baby food! I think it's so exciting to watch them try things for the first time. She doesn't care for pears but she really likes sweet potatoes and bananas. (We're still working on keeping it all inside her mouth!)

Her brothers still adore her but they don't like that she's getting so heavy. They last about 10 seconds holding her most times. (I'm slowly learning that it's next to impossible to have all three looking at the camera at the same time...and to have them smiling [normal] forget about it)

She has been rolling for quite a while but now she almost never stays on her back. Now that she has that down she's been trying to get her legs under her and scootin' a bit. CRAZY!

Except for dealing with her first (and second) ear infections she's perfect!

WHAT?!? She has TEETH!? SAD!
I want those piggy pj's if you can part with them... I'll give them back, I swear! :) So cute. I missed them at Costco. DARN.

So cute of the boys holding her. They're all growing up fast. Come visit, would ya? I know... goes both ways. But we were there for an hour in July! That kinda counts, right?

We miss you guys- hope to see you soon!

In that picture with her great dimples, she looks a lot like Owen/Karen to me.
She is so cute! I love that the boys try to hold her. That picture of all three of them made me laugh out loud! COME TO THANKSGIVING. THANK YOU.

I just showed the girls and Ava said
"Her face looks like her brothers". I asked which brother and she replied "I dunno, they look like each other. She just looks exactly like them."

It's true.

Oh my gosh...I wanted to jump through my screen and squeeze them all! I can't wait 15 more days to see them. Please move closer!
Great blog post, it so makes me smile.
I love being Grandma, but sometimes doesn't feel like it's real with you so far away!
Love, love, love you all!
