Erin is oh so close to rolling over. She can go from tummy to back but she hasn't figure out how to get her shoulder underneath her when trying to roll from back to tummy. She is very close though and I see it happening in the next few days.
We put her in the jumperoo today for the first time and she love's it! She also still loves the exersaucer.

It was an early start because my brother had to work later in the day but it worked out. Evan and Erin had a lot of fun opening their gift. Surprisingly Erin was really into it!
Socks, nom nom nom.
She did really good ripping the wrapping paper.
I think everyone got everything they wanted, Evan got lots of Toy Story stuff, trucks and a giant train set!
I got what I really wanted, a necklace I've been stalking for quite a while. Todd got some points for this one!

It has been so amazing to see everything this holiday season through Evan's eyes. Last year he was still too little to understand certain things but this year he is really really into it.
He loved putting the lights up outside with daddy. He was a big helper.
Riding the carousel at Bass Pro Shop.
Putting his name on the nice list.
Of course Erin has been enjoying all these things right along with Evan but she a wee bit little to have the real fun.
In line to see Santa.

At her 4 month appointment she weighed 14 pounds 2 ounces and was 25 inches long, both the 50th percentile. She is now in the 75th percentile for her head size, was the 90th percentile.
She and I are sharing a nice head cold right now but she is handling it pretty good. Last night she did wake up at about 3am and wanted a bottle, she hasn't done that in over a month. She is just like her big brother was at this age when it comes to sleeping. I'm still doing the dream feed at 10:30 to get her to sleep all night though. I was scared to drop it with Evan and I honestly can't remember how long I kept giving it to him. I would like to go to bed earlier some night but it really doesn't bother me, I actually enjoy the quiet peacefulness of it.

This week has been much better! I think Evan is settling in better with his bedtime routine and starting to have less tantrums. He is getting enough rest therefore isn't quite as cranky. Oh he still has his moments but it's a definite improvement.
And for some unknown reason it seems like he's has grown about 5 feet in the past few weeks. He just walked into a room yesterday and I was struck by how tall he looked. Tonight we were laying on the couch talking and he is getting so good at conversation. I get a lot of "I don't know's" when I ask him questions but more and more he is able to tell me about his day. And he tells me what he likes and what he doesn't.
He really likes The Lion King right now. He still asks to watch Toy Story 3 everyday but occasionally we get The Lion King thrown in there. Usually we oblige him because he will watch for about 15-20 minutes and then be ready to shut it off and play.
He also really like riding in "daddy's big truck". It's one of his favorite things. And of course Papaws tractor is still the best.
He no longer answers with an "uh huh" his new thing is "yeah". Still not the "yes mommy" we have been working on but it'll do. He's begun mimicking some expressions I make it and it is hilarious. I always say "oh hey thanks" when someone gets me something and hearing it out of his little mouth NEVER stops being funny. And his excited "oh my goodness" just delights me in every way.
I could go on and on about the things he says that make me laugh but for now I need to sleep. Erin has a cold and I have a feeling tonight may be a long one. I need to post about her 4 month stats soon. She is growing up so fast!
