Rebecca's 4-Month appointment

Rebecca had her 4-month appointment last Friday. She's of course growing like a weed. :)

So, she came in at 26 1/4" and weighed 12lbs 6oz. So, that puts her above the 95% for length and about the 30% for weight. We grow 'em long and skinny apparently. :) She's getting so big though! And it turns out that she's doing a lot of things they look for in 6-month olds. Lol, of course I already knew my babies grow up way too fast!

But my favorite part was when the Doctor asked if she was a good baby because she just has this angelic look about her. Yup, that's what he said, angelic look. I hope that's what we have in store for us :) But she's not acting so angelic at the moment since she's tired so I'd better go put her to sleep...

Day 24 - Something That Makes You Cry

Let's see... something that makes me cry... Just about anything now a days, lol. I used to never cry but after becoming a Mom, those hormones mess with you and everything makes me cry... Ok, not really everything. But I'd say the #1 thing that makes me cry is the death of a spouse or child in a movie. That gets me every single time.

Busy Busy...

So I started typing this yesterday! I've been that busy! It seems I am in a productive mode lately. The only time I sit down is when I'm feeding the baby or working on a project which leaves me no free hands to type! lol.

This week really has been busy. I decided to start making some stuff for my etsy store. And then I also got some fabric to make the girls some skirts (they're gonna be so cute). So I've spent all of my free time on that stuff. I will post pictures as soon as I get a chance to take some good ones. The flower hair clips I've made turned out really REALLY cute. I'm finding myself wanting to keep them instead of selling them, lol. I will definitely post some pictures when I get a chance.

In the meantime I will also try to make sure I finish up with my blogging challenge posts.... So what if it ends up taking me 2 months to complete a 1 month challenge... at least I'll finish it! It's been fun and interesting doing the Blogging Challenge. Very interesting topics.

In other news. Rebecca is growing like a weed. She is getting so big! Her 4 month check-up is next Friday (I forgot and ended up having to schedule it for then in order for her to see her doctor and not a different one in the practice). I can't wait to find out exactly how big she is!

Charity is loving school. She gets so excited over all the things she's learning. She is just acting more and more grown up every day. She just amazes us with her knowledge and understanding of things.

Danielle is our little fire cracker. She got a little temper and is just so full of energy. The complete opposite of Charity in so many ways. She can be such a little trouble maker and yet such a little Angel. And she is capable of being so darn cute.

We really are blessed with the little family that we have!

Oh, I almost forgot I wanted to share a conversation that I had with Danielle the other day. She is very opinionated and strong willed so handling her when she's upset can be really difficult sometimes. So, we were getting ready to take the van into the shop to get some recalled parts replaced.

Me: "Danielle, What's wrong?"
D: "I don't want to."
Me: "You can ride in the car if you don't want to ride in the van."
D: "No, I don't want to go."
Me: "You have to go Danielle."
D: "O-kay"

She does this really drawn out O when she's giving in. It was just so cute.

Anyway, so there's a quick update on us since I haven't posted in a week or so.
