5 Months

How this sweet girl is already 5 months old is beyond me!  Time just keeps flying and this little one is growing up so fast!  This past month you figured out how to roll from your back onto your tummy. You don't do this super often, usually when I've left the room.  You also tried oatmeal for the first time as well.  While there wasn't a dislike, you weren't quite sure of what to think.  More I think dribbled out of your mouth than was swallowed, but we'll get there.  No longer do you stay in the same place!  You are either rolling or pushing off somewhere!  Perhaps crawling is not as far off as we think!  Your brother absolutely adores you and must go with me to get you out of your crib in the morning.  If I don't let him run up the stairs and into your room first to peak over your bed to say "Hi Molly!"  there is an epic meltdown.  He always wants to know where you're at if he doesn't see you!  Glad to see he's taken his big brother role seriously, but we knew he would!  Still an easy, go with the flow baby (thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!) who sleeps all night and smiles at everyone.  Not sure about your height or weight since we didn't go to the doctor, but already started putting you in some 6 month clothes, so we are definitely growing.  Love you sweet girl!!

The plus to having 2 kids almost 2 years apart exactly is that Timehop let's me
compare their pictures at about the same age.  Caden on the left, Molly on the right.

Big brother didn't want to be left out, so he asked
 to sit next to you with his bib on too!

Visiting Mitt in the hospital where we learned she has Leukemia.
Seeing this sweet girl and her brother definitely brought a smile to her face though!

She makes my heart so happy!

4 Months for Miss Molly!

Another month has come and gone?!  How has it already been 4 months with this sweet girl?!  Miss Molly is still the sweetest little girl!  Very laid back and easy going gal still (THANK YOU!).  Gold stars in the sleep department, though we've had the occasional early wake up call. You're very mch a go with the flow kiddo, which makes this ideal for your big brother!  You cat nap here and there, but I'd say you take at least 3 naps a day.   You absolutely love it when people talk to you!  Sometimes when you're needing some attention, you'll start to get fussy, but once we start talking to you, the fussing stops.  She's been able to roll from her tummy to back for awhile, but doesn't do it all the time.  Girl has to be in the mood to do so.  On her terms, not ours, which is so her brother.
   Turning 4 months meant another trip to see our wonderful pediatrician!  Molly is doing great!  Even though she did gain some good weight, we are going to continue the extra formula in her breast milk/formula that she is drinking for another couple months.
Height: 24.5 in (53%)                    (Caden was 25 in.=34% )
Weight: 13 lbs. 1.9 oz. (27%)        (Caden was 13 lbs. 9.6 oz.=10%)
Head Circum: 16.26 in. (71%)      (Caden was 16.73 in.=71%)

Here are some more photos of our sweet girl living and loving life at 4 months:

having a girl.  He knew one day we would though!
