you have grown so much this past month! you have officially doubled your birth weight and are now 12 lbs 12 oz. you are starting to get chunky and we love all your little rolls. you are rolling around like crazy and cant sit still. you are very aware of everything going on around you and are always looking around taking everything in. you are giggling alot now and i have even caught you a few times giggling to yourself. its fun to hear your happy voice. after you got over your ear infection you went back to sleeping all night. you have even started going to bed almost an hour earlier which has been very nice. in all you sleep about 8 hours, eat, then sleep another 2-3. i feel like i have been able to start catching up on my sleep. its wonderful.
you are still a very pleasant, happy little girl. its been fun to watch you blossom this last month as you have been surrounded by family and friends. we celebrated thanskgiving at the cabin in timberlakes with the behling family and christmas here in heber with the drapers. you are already spoiled and everyone adores you! you enjoy your aunts and uncles and grandparents and little cousins. you smile at everyone and it makes everyone smile back. at your 4 month dr appointment you finally got your 2 month shots. the office has been out of them for the past 2 months so you were a little behind but thats ok because your legs are much chubbier now and could take the poke a little better! i cant decide if it hurt you more to get the shots or peel off the bandaids. you didnt like either very much. it made me sad to see you sad.
this week you discovered your hands. you layed on the bed for 20 minutes holding them in the air, moving them around and watching the way they bend and move. you also discovered your tongue. you have been sticking it out and curling it all day today, like you just realized you are in control of it. its so fun to watch you as you figure everything out.
Q, you continue to be the joy in our lives! you are so delightful and lively and we are soaking up every minute we get with you. you already have us both wapped around your little finger and we adore every little thing about you. we are so blessed to have you! love you lots.

this post comes a little late as month 3 has been filled with sickness. this month you had your first cold and i dont know if it was more miserable for you or for me! you were sick for about a week and it was so sad to see you so unhappy. the cold was then followed by an ear infection which we just discovered. you have been so restless and fussy the last couple weeks and it makes us so gratful that you are usually such a pleasant little girl.on october 30th we celebrated halloween. you were dressed as a glow in the dark skeleton and we went to a party at the mcphies. we watched football, ate lots of food and like always, you were the center of attention. it will be fun in years to come to dress you up and take you out trick or treating.this month you have grown up so much. you are starting to become much more active and sleep alot less during the day. you are still great in your carseat and we still take you all over the place, but you arent a sleeping newborn like you used to be. you like to look around when we are at the store, taking in all the new sights. its fun to watch you look at things and wonder what is going on in your head. your hair is growing like crazy and is alot lighter than the hair you were born with. your eyes are still blue, which i hope stay that way. you continue to smile tons and are now starting to giggle. its funny the things we as adults will do to get you to laugh, but it is worth it! we love it when you are happy.
the biggest change this month is that you got your ears pierced! you had to be 3 months old before they would do it and when you were 3 months and 1 day we were off to the mall. it was pretty sad the way you screamed when they peirced them, but you didnt cry for long once it was over and daddy cuddled you. i wanted silver balls and brady wanted diamonds, so we settled on green diamonds, which are your birthstone. they dont seem to bother you at all and we absolutely love your cute little ears! you are still a great joy to us and getting more and more fun as you learn and try new things. you are growing so fast and changing every day. our whole world has changed because of you and our family would seem so empty without you. we are so happy to have you here!
love you lots.
