4 month check up and our last week together

Today we had Evalee's four month check up with Dr. Moen. She's doing great -- still in the 50th percentile for weight and height and 25th percentile for her head size. She was 24/5 inches long and weighed 14 pounds 7 ounces. She still has a bit of a flat head in the back because she doesn't spend as much time as she should on her tummy. Mommy promises to be better with that this month haha. We also got the green light to start feeding her solid foods! I am so so excited about this idea and the possibility that this may result in her sleeping in bigger chunks at night. So I, of course, went to the grocery store afterwards and picked up the stage 1 foods for her to try. Tonight we had sweet potatoes and applesauce and I think she did really well for her first time with it! She got another oral vaccine and two shots but did so great with the shots this time. She didn't even cry until the second one, and she calmed down right away. She's getting to be such a big girl!

We have really enjoyed this last week we have had together just hanging out and reading books, going to Grandma and Grandpa's for dinner, and snuggling as much as possible. She has a bit up nose so we have had to spend more time with that snot sucker thing than either of us would like, but other than that we're in ship shape. This weekend we hit the road again for Great-Grandma Furness's birthday paprty in Virden. It'll be fun to finally introduce her to so many members of the family!

Didnt' take many pics this week -- but here are a few with her Daddy...
