Our baby girl is an eating machine!!!

So, Katie went to the pediatrician for her 4 month checkup. She weighed 12 lbs. 11 oz. (40th percentile) and was 22 inches (10th percentile). Her pediatrician, Dr. Livingston, told us that she was ready to start rice cereal. However, with her bowel issues, he is having us use oatmeal instead. So, we mixed some up tonight, thinking she would only take one bite and spit it out. NOPE... She learned how to open her mouth when she wanted more. She took bite after bite after bite before we finally had to stop her. She would've eaten the entire bowl if we had let her!

Here are a couple pictures of her eating:

And here she is afterwards:

And just for those of you that are interested... Here are a couple videos of her eating:

Emma and Katie had a sleepover on Friday night. I was getting Emma into the bathtub while Katie was having tummy time. I walked out of the room for maybe 30 seconds, and when I came back she wasn't on her tummy anymore. I went into the kitchen to ask Matt if he rolled her over, and he said, "Nope.. She just rolled over." I couldn't believe that he didn't like scream and yell or something. I missed her first rolling over, but Daddy made it in the room just in time to see it. Emma also got to see her do it.

Check out the video of her rolling over!!!

EXCUSE the wild laughter at the end.. It was my first time to see her, and I just couldn't help myself!

Dear Katie,

You have blossomed into such a fun and sweet little girl this past month. It took you a while to start smiling, but you never stop now! It is just so sweet. Mommy absolutely loves to bring you into the jacuzzi tub with her. Even though Mommy goes to work now, she never stops thinking about you. You are constantly on both of our minds all day long - you are our pride and joy.

We love you, little one!


Mommy and Daddy
