It looks like she will love it...

She is changing so much, literally, every day. One day, she wasn't rolling at all. The next day, she rolled over twice in our bed, which is soft and therefore easier for her to get over her shoulder. Then the next day, she was rolling every five minutes on the hard floor. I'm so amazed at how fast things change. Right now, she is only consistently rolling from her back to her tummy. You may remember that her first roll over was from tummy to back, but she hasn't mastered that yet. She has started to babble a lot. It started with her just "talking" herself to sleep, and then she started doing it more and more mostly when she got sleepy. Next to her laughing, this is the best noise in the world to me. I've tried to capture it on video, but only got a little bit (see below). Recently, she started to do the cutest "wet razzing" sound as one of my books calls it. She puts her lips tightly together and blows with all of the drool. It makes me laugh every time. We plan on starting her on oatmeal this Tuesday. I've already bought all of the stuff and set up her highchair in preparation. I can't wait to move on to this next step.
Talking/fussing herself to sleep one night before bed (I taped the sound on the monitor).
This was her first time in the pool. She wasn't overly thrilled, but I think she had a good time. She probably would have fallen asleep if we would have let her. I bought her a floaty thing, but the YMCA won't let you use it in their pool. Oh well, we'll just have to find another pool then.
Watching daddy blow bubbles. What fun!
Lately she has been sucking in her bottom lip and sucking on it. It's so adorable.
She was getting very sleepy and her little fingers and toes looked like raisins so we decided to get out.
She was exhausted afterwards.
Testing out the highchair:
I think she likes it.
She looks so tiny in the big chair.
Mouth open, ready to eat!
Fun bath time:
(She's going to kill me for that one day, but I can't resist those dimples.)
Look at what a year can bring:
...but she didn't seem to mind.

Haley went to the doctor's this past Wednesday for her 4 month checkup. She weighed a whopping 13 lbs. 11 oz. and is 25.5 inches long. I couldn't have been more wrong about her weighing 16 lbs :). Oh well, she feels like 16 lbs to me. She is so heavy these days compared to the tiny little 2-4 pounders at work. She has grown 5 inches since birth which is amazing. Did anyone doubt that she would be tall? She's still in the 50th percentile for weight and 98th for height. She got her shots and cried harder than I have ever seen. It broke my heart! She calmed down before we got to the car and fell asleep before we left the parking lot. She did well for the rest of the day and just slept a little more than usual. She ended up sleeping for 10 and a half hours that night. The next day, however, she ran a low grade temp all day and slept like crazy. I just gave her a lot of Tylenol and by the next day, she was back to her old self.
I'm constantly amazed at how lucky I am. I have the sweetest, smartest, and most precious baby in the world (I'm not biased at all). I love her more than anything and I feel so blessed and grateful every day. I'll post pics as soon as I can.
