This summer has been so fun so far. We've had some lazy days and some busy days around here. Hayes and I had VBS last week and I worked in the nursery with the babies 1 year and younger. That was a nice glimpse to see how my little girl does in the nursery on Sundays. NO naps for her all morning while we were there and apparently this is why she sleeps ALL afternoon on her Sundays. She was definitely one of the loudest babies there who had to either be walked or strolled around-no mam-no napping, swinging, or rocking for her-the girl had to be up and about moving somewhere to wear a happy face. That is okay b/c her mama was taking care of her anyway!
She is 4 1/2 months now-time goes by too fast. We say everyday we cannot believe how fast she's growing. I'm sure we'll be saying that her entire life like every parent does. At her check up she weighed 12.1 lbs. and was 24 1/2 inches long. She has just started sleeping really good at night-I hope I'm not speaking too soon! Every night is anywhere from 10-12 hours-crazy I just wrote that-4 1/2 months ago I could have never imagined I would get more than a couple of hours of sleep at night-but wow how things change and really soooo fast. She is so fun too-smiling, laughing and so happy every time she wakes up. The rice cereal is fun and she loves it b/c it's mixed with yummy apple juice. She eats it all so fast and is sad when it's gone! We have spent most of our days swinging on the porch or out on walks in the stroller-both make her VERY happy and content.
This week our cousins from Dothan are coming in town! yea! We can't wait to see and hang out with them. My sister is bringing her 3 (Holley, Mary Hannah, and Carson) to play for a few days. If anyone knows of any free/inexpensive activities let me know (besides the zoo and mcwane) otherwise we will be hanging out in the front yard in either a baby pool or slip and slide!
We have Hayes' baby dedication coming up on Sunday and we're really excited about having all of our family there as we dedicate our little girl's life to the Lord,commit to raising her in a Christian home and teaching her about Jesus. Such a happy day and I cannot wait. Our family is coming over for lunch on Sunday so we have lots to do to get ready. Poor Nathan has been working so hard in our yard and I think the inside is my job?! We'll see how clean it gets this week with 4 kids here.
So sorry about the post with no pictures but I have to figure out how to download my pics on my camera without completely re-downloading ALL the pictures again from my camera. I've done it several times and so now I have multiple copies of the same pictures on our computer and some need deleting and they all need organizing. I need some tech support!
One last thing I will show you is the new little sun hat I ordered for Hayes-this is not her! But she does look sort of like this baby-or they are at least the same size! I think she'll be precious in this hat and then we'll be all set for some pool time-YEA!! I also have a recipe to share-if you like to eat I think you'll like it! Happy Monday!
