We made it

We made it four months! Due to a non-functioning scale, we don't have Miss O's weight, but trust me when I tell you she is a BIG girl, and my arms are feeling the effects of hauling her around. But I am happy to do so as long as she isn't fussing:) To celebrate, we got down the old Jumperoo, and Charlotte helped initiate Olivia into her new play center, which she really loves so far, though her patience for it only comes in short spurts. Hopefully soon she will want to spend as much time in it as Charlotte did at that age. It helped a lot, especially during a week when H and I got super sick and all I could do is lay on the couch and watch her jump.
Charlotte is a great big sister. She can't wait to see her each morning and loves reading with her.
We have also had a great strawberry harvest this year! The other night we brought in a whole container full of them.
We also had an awesome time at the grand opening of Red Mango, a new frozen yogurt place at the Shops at Legacy. They were giving out free bowls of frozen yogurt and toppings for all and Charlotte got a kick out of Junk Jammin' outside with her buddy.

She sure is big! I'm curious to hear her weight, when you find out.

She is huge! But it's super cute, don't worry. Will was pretty chubby (not that chubby) and I hated hauling that boy around!

Olivia is so cute! I can't believe she is already 4 months old! Charlotte moved right into big sister mode. That is so sweet, her reading to Olivia.

I was just catching up on your blog...I am sorry that Olivia has been such a hard baby! Sophie had colic till she was 4 months so I hope that things are looking up for you from here on out. I tried everything too and the only thing that seemed to sooth her was white noise. She loved the sound of a fan, the vacuum, running water.....Good luck till it goes away! She is so dang cute! LOVE those chubby thighs!
