4 months old!

Hello everyone- Emma here. I have finally adjusted back to the east coast timezone and I have some news. I am now 4 MONTHS OLD! It is so exciting, I am learning and doing new things everyday. Here is a little update on what I have picked up over the last few months.

I can now hold my head up all by myself ( I have actually been doing this for a while but now I do it with confidence!) Since I can hold my head up I like to lay on my tummy and play and I can now go in my jumparoo and exersaucer. I am even getting much better at standing with just a little help from Mom or Dad.

I am also now sleeping in my very own bed. It was tough for Mommy and Daddy to give up having me near them when they were sleeping but I decided it was time. I go to bed between 10:30 and 11pm and I sleep until about 8 am when I wake up with a smile for Daddy.
At my doctor's appointment this week I learned that I have stayed in the 75% percentile for both my height and my weight. Mom thought for sure that I was a chunky monkey over 15 lbs but again she was wrong and I am a slim 14 1/2 lbs and 24 3/4 inches long. I also received my second round of shots and took them like a pro. Dr. Jo also cleared me for something else- trying REAL food!
I had my first meal of rice cereal on Sunday and I am not quite sure what I thought about it. Mom wasn't too sure that I actually got any in my mouth but I did get a taste of it. It's kind of strange but Daddy told me I have to keep eating it is I ever want to try his delicous Reese's.

Lastly- I get to do something very special next Sunday (besides watching my FIRST superbowl.) Mommy and Daddy are dedicating me to the Lord. For those of you not familar with dedication it is like a baptism but instead of putting water on my head Mommy and Daddy promise to raise me up knowing Jesus and then I get to make the choice when I want to get baptized. It is so exciting that Grandpa Robb is flying out to see it even during tax season. I can't wait!

So those are the highlights- hope you all have a great week!

You're getting cuter everyday Emma. Enjoy your first Super Bowl. Too bad that your daddy's favorite Cowboys aren't playing...LOL!
