Four Months



Our little doll is four months old! We are in awe of God's graciousness towards her. At her doctors appointment he said she was thriving. Music to my ears. She's weighing in at 11 pounds and is 22 inches. She smiles and giggles constantly and brings so much joy to our home. She's already rolled over a couple times too! 

And a huge answer to prayer is she's really starting to get the hang of nursing!! I'm only giving her a bottle once or twice a day. I'm so happy that she's finally doing it and have so much more time on my hands since I'm not having to pump constantly. She's also sleeping through the night 8:00 to 8:00. God knows I need the sleep. (especially since her brother still likes to wake up)

Elijah loves her! I can't tell you how sweet it is to see your children love each other. I'm amazed at how much Elijah wants to take care of her. Whenever we get in the car he reaches over and takes her hand and whenever she's crying he finds her paci and tries to put it in her mouth. (which usually makes her cry more...he doesn't real understand the full meaning of gentle.) He tells her he loves her and kisses her all the time. We are blessed beyond measure.
