4 months old---updated

4 month stats:
10lbs 11.5oz (5%), 23 3/4in long (30%)
We've got to beef up our itty bitty! Hopefully she'll like a little formula with her breastmilk---wish us luck!
I can't believe how quickly time is moving. The other day, I met with a teacher friend of mine who was telling me about her up coming conferences---and I was like "WHAT? how can conferences be going on this week? School just started!" But, school didn't just start, I'm just WAY out of the loop, living in baby world where there are no conferences. Mainly just a lot of drooling.  However, if I were to have a conference to discuss all the ways I've seen Kendall grow and learn so far in her life, she would pass with flying colors :) She is still sleeping through the night most nights, adding new sounds (and new volume) to her vocabulary, grabbing and actually playing with her toys, putting everything that comes near her in her mouth, sitting with assistance, attempting to roll from her tummy to back, flirting with friends (and strangers at the grocery store), giggling and smiling in anticipation of a kiss or a tickle, growling up a storm, standing with our help, and growing out of her clothes daily it seems! We are seriously loving each new phase (even the clingy fussy one she recently started while on a trip to visit her Great Grandpa).
Here are her 4 month dolly pictures. She wasn't very happy at first....



 Letting her suck her thumb helped....
 But letting her pretend she's a big girl in her crib did the trick! Did I mention she loves to stand up with our help? Standing might be tied with sucking her hands for her favorite thing in the world.
We love you Kendall, thanks for being the best baby in the world! Stats to come later this week...

Growling Monster

Kendall's new trick is growling. I don't know if she likes the sound, or the way it feels in her throat, but she does it ALL THE TIME! I think she learned from her friend Avlynne, who is a growling expert! The video is a little dark and a little long...but it's pretty cute :)

Halloween baby!

I've never been a big fan of Halloween. Don't get me wrong, I love the candy, it's just the dressing up that has never been a joy of mine. However, now that we have a little one this holiday has just become really fun!I loved dressing Kendall up in all her costumes and seeing all my friends kids and old students. I think next year there will be a little more planning involved and Keith and I might even join in the fun. 

I just couldn't decide which kitty picture I liked best. So in Erin Corry fashion, I have created a little collage!
On Friday she dressed up as a cat and headed down to the Brentwood Halloween parade!
 On Saturday she was a plump little pumpkin!
 And on Halloween she was a ferocious lion! Posing here with her cousins, and below with her friend Avlynne the cow.

The main problem Kendall had with Halloween was how she couldn't see a darn thing all weekend with all these too big hoods :)
