update on lyla

the grunt had her 4 month appointment today, and is doing great. she weighed in at 15 pounds and 6 ounces and is 25 inches long. this puts her at the 85th percentile in weight and 75th in height. she is just a growing, growing baby!

we have been feeding her rice cereal for the past couple of weeks, and she rolled over for the first time last wednesday. she is so stinkin' cute just to watch and is growing up way to fast, i can't believe it!

lyla has had a cold for the past week, but her congestion seems to be clearing up a little more with each day that passes. you wouldn't be able to tell my looking at her though because she is still in good spirits. she has started giggling now when you tickle her, and it is super sweet. also, she loves sitting up in her bumbo...it's all she wants to do so that she can look at the world in a new perspective.

lastly, doctor said she looks great and that now we can start her on some fruits and vegetables. tonight she ate some squash and loved it. i almost forgot how funny it is trying to feed a baby. i hope nobody ever has to watch me while feeding her because i tend to mimic her facial expressions without even realizing it. i open my mouth up big and act like i'm eating it with her. too funny.anyways, she is doing great and loves to watch her big sister play. i love the way she looks at the mabster and smiles...it's the sweetest thing ever. we are excited about her first christmas, and can't wait for her to play with her new toys. merry christmas everyone!
