lakehouse fun

here are some fun pictures from a recent weekend out at the lake.
we had michelle & kent lawrence out along with their two AMAZING, well-behaved children, madison & preston.
it's always a blast having them out & pretty special since Kent married me and blake.
sarah smith also joined us which made for a fun weekend!
of course, the kids seemed to be most excited about surfing with "mr. blake".
it was all they talked about the entire weekend!

robbie & eleanor- so precious!

4 months

here is my sweet baby girl at 4 months!
i can't believe how much she has changed this month.
she has so much personality now...it's truly a blast!
all went well at her 4 month check up.
she weighs a whopping 12.6 pounds now (25th %) and is 25 1/4 inches long (80th %).
this definitely explains why at 3 months she was finally able to fit into her 0-3 month clothing and now they are all too short however the 3-6 month clothing fits in length but not width.
i am pretty sure they don't make "tall' in baby clothes.
oh well.
eleanor tidbits:
she is still being swaddled although we are beginning to not swaddle for naps.
she eats every three hours and still wakes up twice a night to eat.
we are still soley nursing & probably won't start solids until 6 months.
she is not teething yet.
she is a spitter upper.
most days we are on a 7 am, 10am, 1pm, 4pm, 7pm feeding schedule.
she is a great napper, still taking 3 naps a day, anywhere from 45-min to 2 hours.
she is typically asleep by 730pm each night and wakes up at 7am.
she loves bathtime and hates getting out of the tub which is really the only time she ever cries.
she loves, loves her butterfly mobile above her crib & her blabla mobile above her changer.
she has slept in her crib from the beginning & always goes in awake.
she has the SWEETEST smile that will melt your heart.
