Life with Ellie at 4 months

We have entered 4 months!  I feel like this past month we really hit a good stride (not that I really felt like we were struggling before, but I just am continuing to feel more confident with 3).  We got out a lot this last month and Ellie even had her first trip to the beach.  We go to the doctor Monday, so I will update weight and length then.  I'm going to try to hit all her new things through pictures this month instead of my list, this may get pretty random :)

 1st time in nursery at church (I really need a pic of her with Mrs. Debbie who has kept all 3 of my babies)

 Ben continues to love her ferousiously.  She has become very interested in what her brothers are doing this month and watches their crazy antics.

 Zeke is pretty protective of her already.  If she cries or it seems like Ben is doing something with her he shouldn't, he is quick to let me know.  He isn't as helpful about bringing diapers and stuff but he fiercely loves his baby sister and proudly tells everyone

 Baby girl decided a few nights that she likes sleep.  She has gone as many as 10 (say what?!) hours of sleep.  The past week though, she has been in a growth spurt and we have returned to every 3 hours :-/

 She is very rarely seen with out a bow on her head.  Her daddy doesn't love this so much, but mama likey
 Ellie still enjoys being half swaddled for most naps and nights.  She also likes to sleep on her side a lot.  She can actually roll onto her side now.  She is working hard on rolling over and I don't think it will be long

 Ellie has become such a talker.  She will yell while we are having dinner if we aren't talking to her.  At a party recently she chatted it up with our friends Brad and Jena-Marie.  She really liked Brad (I'm thinking she likes men... uh-oh!)

 She got her first sibling injury :(

 This was her first pool trip.  She did really well and I didn't lose my cool being alone with 3 kids at a pool

 Someone found her hands this month and LOVES them.  She sucks on them especially when she is sleepy, but girl will not take a paci!  We think she is starting the teething process because I can see her top teeth working their way down.  I'm hoping it will still be a while before they actually emerge

 I love this dress that we recieved as a gift (from Mrs. Debbie!) so much that I have already purchased it in the next size up.  At the rate she is growing it won't be long before she will be ready for it

 Ellie (FINALLY) got to meet her cousin Sierra this month.  We are still waiting to meet Shelly...
