THE LAST MONTH AND A HALF...

We are blogging failures and continually have to play catch-up! However, we have loved spending time as a family the last couple of months and watching our Daphne grow. She is hilarious and precious, and I know we say it every time, but we couldn't be luckier to have her as our daughter.

Some new things about Daph:

~SHE SLEEPS THROUGH THE NIGHT with bedtime at 8:30! It's crazy how much better you feel when you're not up every 2-3 hours during the night.
~She loves staring at her hands and our hands. She is just discovering her feet.
~First time she leaned toward me to hold her: May 6th
~She rolled over for the first time on May 15th!
~She loves to sit up and will no longer let me hold her like a baby. (so sad)
~She is starting to laugh more and often smiles with her mouth wide open.
~Daph holds on for dear life to the sides of her changing pad and bathtub
~Went from hating her carseat to liking it 50% of the time
~I love it when she sleeps on my lap after eating
~Her cute hair is growing in again on the top of her head, but she now has a stylish bald spot in back.
~We're just getting over the phase of staring at the camera instead of smiling
~She loves to hold and suck on the washcloth in her bath
~Daph runs her fingers through my hair and plays with my necklace while nursing
~She has a dimple in her right cheek when she smiles
~She puts up her right leg every time she takes a bath
~Daph still loves sucking on both of her fists
~She is so funny, social, and talkative!
~LOVES to blow bubbles
~Gets excited to suck on her books and helps turn the pages
~She loves to touch and suck on my cup every time I am drinking something
~Loves to stand up
~Puts everything in her mouth
~Her new favorite things: books, cups, and sitting up
~Most of all, she's the most precious baby in the world.

Her 4 month stats:
Height: 24.5 inches (60th percentile)
Weight: 13 pounds 12 ounces (50th percentile)
Head Circumference: 42 cm. (75th percentile)

Our world revolves around our sweet baby girl, so what does that mean? There are endless pictures of her (feel free to take a nap or eat a snack half way through).
