It's been a hell of a long time. I get distant when I feel like I am talking with no one. But, hell, that's my fault. I should have just kept my blog as is and not went on a deleting rampage all because of a psycho family.
Back to the matters at hand...
Mad little cupcake is amazing. She has grown by leaps and bounds and is possibly cuter and more fun by the minute. The last time I posted, she was just about to be three months....rolling once and just developing a personality. Now, she is a fistful of spunk who talks most of the day at a pretty large shreek. She is enjoying her baths, kicking and splashing around, knowing that she is the cause of the splashes seems to thrill her. We've been to the zoo, the park, loud ass fireworks, and the lake...it's amazing how all of these places become much more exciting because there is a little person learning something absolutely new for the first time.
We had her four month appointment, she is 15 lbs and 25.5 inches! The 90th and 95th percentile for height/weight. She is a biggon. We've had her next to infants that were within a week or days of her and she towers over them in size and in capabilities. I swear she'll be walking by 7 months, she spends most of her day standing rather than sitting. We were cleared for solids today, although we've been trying small bites for a few weeks now seeing if she was interested. The doc seems to think we can do rice cereal for a few weeks, then start adding veggies (I thought you had to wait until 6 months).
I've finally gotten the swing of things... I actually miss it when she's not around (grandmas/work) because we've really got a groove going. We're going to get this all amazing routine down and end up with a second kid before we know it. That whole protection thing has never really worked out (and I know that this is supposed to be the most fertile time). Not that getting pregnant is easy, it just would be the wrong time....so the universe could help me out.
Anyhow, I'll post pics later. Thanks for sticking around and waiting patiently for my return.
