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...

In the spirit of conferences and report cards, her smile is a 4, exceeding expectations! Seriously, I don't think she could be any cuter!

She is ADORABLE!!!! It sounds like Kendall and Rylan would get along well. They could hang out and suck on their hands together. It's one of Rylan's favorite things right now too!

Um, the last picture is priceless. Love it! Like you, it's hard for me to sometimes believe the teaching world is in existence. I wish I missed it more, but I really don't ;). Being a mom is the best!

Love her smile in the last picture...so adorable! I totally know what you mean about conferences already being here! I feel so disconnected from the teaching world...amazing how your priorities change so quickly :). I'm so thankful to get to spend this time at home during the holidays with Ella!
