Our baby girl is four months old! After we returned from Pennsylvania during Christmas break, Leah decided it was time to roll over from her back to her tummy. She loves to use her strong little legs to stand up while someone is holding her. All our babies have been very happy, but Leah seems to be the happiest of them all! She smiles and giggles at her sisters and brother when they talk to her and say her name. Leah is sleeping all night long from 8 pm to 8 am. She is even content to lay for a minute in the morning before I feed her while I make myself a cup of coffee. She is drooling all the time and usually has a finger or two or three in her mouth. We couldn’t be happier to have this sweet bundle of joy in our lives.
Here is a little video of her giggling at mommy before bedtime…
Also the girls sang with Micah at church…
His smile makes my heart feel like its going to burst open, so I thought I’d share some joy with you.
These girls are always smiling
Can you handle the cuteness?
I just pulled some size 2T clothes out for Keira, that I had kept here that Violet grew out of. They are all from when we first came to Moscow, including the pajamas that Keira is wearing in the video. I remember taking a video of Violet in those same jammies, and it brought back some happy memories.
Here it is…
One way we can tell summer is coming, is from the longer days. Right now this is what it looks like at 9 pm.
Keira had her first taste of some solid food about a week ago. Of course, it was really runny with some mommy’s milk added to it. But overall she seemed to like it. Some people think starting baby off with fruits, might give them a sweet tooth, but I read online that bananas are a good one to start with because they have a similar taste to breast milk, which is also kind of sweet. She has also had some baby cereal and done really well with that too. Today I gave her a taste of some thawed out pureed pumpkin, but she did not seem to like it. She was gagging on it and made really funny faces showing me she was not enjoying it at all. We’ll see if she changes her mind tomorrow.
Here are some pics and a video of her first taste of banana:
