Elephant Butte Lake

We went to Elephant Butte Lake yesterday and had a blast. You were very well behaved for the 2 hour car ride there. You napped for the first half and then got up to eat and tell us lots of stories. After we got there we walked on the beach and even stuck our toes in the water. Soon after that we met up with our friends Gaby and Josh. They were so excited to see you since last time they saw you, you were a tiny baby. We rented a boat and had a fun day on the lake lounging, swimming, and even a little snoozing. The car ride home you took another nap before requesting mommy come sit with you in the backseat and play. We sang songs and danced. You were also trying hard to find your feet after Gaby showed you where they were.

Tonight we skyped with Gammie and Pop. You enjoy sitting in your bumbo and showing off your skills of laughing, talking, and chewing on your blanket. Then you moved to the floor to show off your strong neck muscles during tummy time. This is also when you showed off how much you drool. Gammie enjoys checking out your chunky monkey legs and piggy toes. She also likes to tell you how big you got and how much she misses you.

We have been to the zoo many times and this time we went ahead and got the annual membership so there will be many more trips in the future. This is the first trip that you were actually awake the entire time. Daddy enjoyed getting pictures of you with the animals.

Rice Cereal

Today you tried rice cereal for the first time. It went well for a first try. You liked it enough, but most of it ended up on your face and the bib. I bet it will get even better as you get used to it.

4 months

A lot has changed in the past few weeks. You now sleep all night 10 to 11 hours a night. You transitioned from a bassinet to your crib. You don't cry in the bath anymore. Your talking quite a bit more. Your fav toys are ones that sing songs and light up. You love to eat anything that comes near you this includes clothes and burp cloths. We switched to cloth diapers and it's working out great. We can't wait to try rice cereal and see how much you love it.

At the doctor today you weighed 14.10 pounds, which is the 50th percentile. You got even taller and are up to 25 inches, which is also the 50th percentile.

Flying home

We were lucky enough to have Auntie Sam fly home with us since it's a big project to get thru the airport with 2 dogs and you. Plus all the baggage too. We had a layover in Chicago so Aunt Stephie came for a quick visit and got to hold you and even feed you.
