4 months

We went for Catherine's 4 month check-up on Wednesday. She is in the 50th percentile across the boards weighing 13 lbs 14 oz, and 24 in long. She did so well with shots too, giving the nurse a smile afterwards. Last weekend we were in Somerset visiting my parents. This was the first time Granny and my sister's family have seen Catherine. We all had a great time.

Did you know she can read?

Turn your volume up

Jonathan and Catherine gave me a video camera for my birthday. This is the first video when we were at my parent's house this past weekend in Kentucky. Catherine has become quite the entertainer with her squeal.

First Cereal

With Catherine turning 4 months (WOW, time flies) we decided to start rice cereal once a day. She's still learning.

As you can see, more food can back out of her mouth than she kept in.

After a couple of days, she's begun to lick the bowl

"More please"

Time for an upgrade

Catherine is becoming more interested in her surroundings, rolling, and grabbing things. A couple of weeks ago we decided that she should have a new toy. This gym has all the bells and whistles. We love playing with it. She is able to play with herself for quite some time.

New Tricks

It's been about a week now that Catherine has found her feet. She will continue to hold her feet even after we've picked her up. She hasn't tried putting them in her mouth yet. She's grabbing everything and putting it her mouth now. At least for the time being we can control what goes in her mouth.
Getting both feet at the same time!

"I can't get my foot to come to me so I'll come down to it"

This is her typical pose throughout the day now. One hand on foot, the other in her mouth
