Evie is Four Months Old

Evie turned Four months old on March 29, 2012.

Weight:  14.9 lbs. (75%)
Length: 25 in. (80%)

Sleeping Patterns: We decided to sleep train Evie this month.  Life feels normal again, as we are all finally sleeping!  She goes to bed usually around 6:30, and will sleep till about 5am. We typically will feed her, and then put her back down.  She is a sleeper (just like her mommy); and will sleep in pretty late, if I let her.  She does still wake in the night, but will cry herself back to sleep in a few minutes.  She is still napping in her swing, and typically takes 2-3 naps per day.  One of those naps is usually "on the go."

Eating Habits:  Eats every 3-4 hours on average during the day.  Currently, she is taking 6 oz. at each feeding.  She will drink a bit more for her nighttime bottle.  

New discoveries:  Evie is doing great sitting up with support.  She can now play in her exersaucer, and is almost out of her Bumbo seat.  She tries to put everything in her mouth, but I've yet to see any signs of a tooth.  Her biggest discovery this month has been her feet.  She's always trying to suck on them!

Milestones:  Sleeping thru the night, and falling asleep on her own.  Discovering her feet.  Sitting up without too much support, and laughing a lot more.

Places Evie loves:  Her swing, bouncy seat, being held, Bumbo seat, activity mat, exersaucer, and stroller.  She also loves being outside.  We are enjoying our front porch a lot these days, with the warm weather.  We also finally got our double stroller (thanks, Mom!), and both kids are enjoying the neighborhood walks.

Special Friends:  Bobby, and Evie's cousins from Atlanta.

Current Events:  Mitt Romney appears to be the GOP's candidate for President, Secret Service scandal in Columbia, Treyvon Martin case, Baseball Opening Day, Hunger Games mania.

What We Did this Day:  Evie tagged along with mommy and daddy, as we met our attorney to finalize our will.  Bobby was at school.

Here's Bobby at four months:

And, here's his four month post.

Easter 2012

Easter this year, was pretty fun for our family.  

We started off the festivities a few weeks before the holiday with a neighborhood Easter egg hunt.  Even though Bobby had participated in past years' hunts, he finally "got it" this year.  The day was gorgeous, and it's always fun to see our friends and neighbors.  Love our 'hood!

Very serious hunter.

I swear Bobby had fun! Ha!
The weather on Easter was beautiful, here in Birmingham!  We started the day by going to church, and then heading home for brunch (made by yours truly.)  We have always headed to our neighborhood's resort for brunch, but I did not make reservations this year, due to family visiting.  Once those plans sadly fell through, I decided to just cook brunch myself.  I made a breakfast casserole recipe found on Pinterest, pancakes, eggs, and bacon.  Bob and I also enjoyed a mimosa!

Love these munchkins!
Evie - 4 months old, Bobby - 2 1/2 years old

Evie's outfit was given by Bob's grandmother, Renee.  Bobby's shirt was given by my mom.

This was around 1pm.  We were pretty full all day long.

After brunch, we dyed some Easter eggs.  

Can you tell I was taking advantage of NOT being behind the camera this day! Ha!

After dying our eggs, Bob headed outside to hide some eggs for Bobby.  And, let me explain why he's not wearing pants.  We've been potty-training the past few weeks, and it is a lot easier for Bobby to just pull down his undies to go potty; instead, of pants too.  Plus, he had woken from his nap.  

Who am I kidding?  My child has never been big on wearing pants!  That's how we roll here in the Ross house.  I'm sure Evie will be the same way.  

Just look at this Regal Pup!

Overall, we had a great Easter!  Bob even hid an egg for me!  It was up high, and when I opened it, it had a fifty dollar bill in it!  What a little stinker of a husband I have! :)  The kids got books, clothes, and toys from the Easter bunny.  Or, as Bobby calls him, "the white rabbit at the mall."
