Four months old

Olivia was four months old yesterday. Her little personality continues to come through every day. She is diffidently a little motor mouth. She coos and squeals ALL the time! As of this weekend she is rolling over from her stomach to her back. In fact, she now likes tummy time because she doesn't stay there very long. She likes sitting and standing with support. We got out the exersaucer on Sunday and she seems to like it because she can look around everywhere. She is starting to hold toys in her hand and is trying to bring them to her mouth. She recognizes voices and follows Gracie and her daddy around the room with her eyes. She continues to eat every three hours and eats cereal once a day. She is currently waking up two times a night. I am not enjoying this phase, hopefully we can get her sleeping through the night again soon!!! She is still taking prevacid twice a day for her reflux. I tried cutting the dose but she didn't seem ready for it. I am hoping after a few days of cereal we can try again.

** I took Olivia to the doctor today for her four month check up. She weighed in at 14.4lbs and is 25 1/2 in long. That is the 90th percentile for height and 80th for weight.

Do you think she will kill me later on for the pictures above?

The last of my beach pictures

These pictures are all so random but some of my favorites. I am not kidding when I tell you I have about a thousand pictures from the beach. Hope you enjoy...

I know this is my kid, but is she not the prettiest thing?!

The last day we walked up the beach a little bit and got snow cones. Thanks Aunt KK

Grace liked the hot tub. She called it the "baby pool".

Greg Russell

At the beginning of the week we plan out all the dinners for the week. The first night is always ordering pizza. Then each family choices a menu and fixes dinner one night and then we go out to eat three nights. This year our third night of eating out was a treat, Maw Maw and Paw Paw kept Grace and Hudson so we could each have date nights. Thanks mom and dad.
My favorite night is going to the lighthouse, eating dinner at The Crazy Crab and then letting the kids listen to Greg Russell sing under the tree. I think one of the reason it is so special to me is because I remember going as a kid. Grace enjoyed eating the ice cream and doing a little dance or two.

My sister and I are in love with pictures of our children. One night this week we went outside for a photo shoot of our two. Hope you enjoy some of the thousands of photos I am sharing.

Monday and Tuesday at the beach...more pics

We are having a great time with the kids and the weather is awesome! These pictures are from the last two days...more to be added.

Olivia had her first taste of cereal today. She wasn't too sure about it but she kept eating it...or I think she ate some, most ended up on her bib and face.

Grace loves the little pools of water.

Olivia asleep on the beach once again.
Today we ate at Salty Dog for lunch. Grace was amused by the birds and watching the dolphins in the cove.
Olivia was finally awake at the beach.
