4.5 months

Holy cow, time has flown! So sorry for no updates or pictures. My little lady is keeping me wonderfully busy!

Reese is 4.5 months old now. At her 4 month check up she weighed in at 10lbs 5oz, and 23 1/4in long. A little on the small side so my doctor and I talked about options to help beef her up a little. She is still thriving, hitting all of her developmental milestones right on time, so we are not worried about her size. She is just a lil' peanut! And SO cute that way!

Reese is a total joy. She is mobile now and rolls all over the place. She loves rolling to the dogs then grabbing their fur. Of course, everything she grabs goes in her mouth. So there have been a few times she will try to eat the dog. We figure living in this house, that's just going to happen! Obviously we try to limit the amount of times she is sucking on dog fur. ;)

She is a happy little girl 98% of the time. She sleeps wonderfully. She does the funniest little giggles, even though she is so serious it is hard to get a giggle out of her. She is shy around other people and if we hand her off to someone else at church or elsewhere, she will let you know she is NOT happy about that! So that is something we will continuously be working on, but I have a feeling it will just get worse until it gets better.

We are going to California next month for my grandpas memorial service. While I am absolutely DREADING the flights (not because of Reese but because I loathe flying), I am so excited to be back in California. It's been two years since we've been back! Reese will get to meet the rest of her cousins and I will get some good family time in. I cannot wait!
