my little girl...

is four months old! she weighs 14 lbs 6 oz. (72%) and is 25.5 inches long (83%). She keeps getting more fun everyday. the doc says that she is looking great and we can start her on solids whenever we want. I think that i'm going to wait a few more weeks. we are really in no hurry since she already sleeps so good and is plenty big. i love, love, love this little girl.

My first mothers day was wonderful. I cant believe how much of a blessing being a mom is and how happy it makes me everyday. Motherhood has been the greatest blessing in my life. Now that she is here i can not imagine our lives with out her. On the rare days when being a mom is frustrating and challenging i just have to look back and recognize how lucky i am to have a child and understand how divine my role as a mom is. I am so lucky to have such an amazing mom and mother-in-law that have been such great examples to me.

When we were at church Ashley and and i were in the mothers room feeding our girls, who are like three weeks apart. We decided to snap a few pictures to capture their size difference. Ellie is just the cutest little petite thing. Her and Ave are complete opposites in size...i told ash that Ellie could borrow a little fat roll anytime she wanted..we have plenty to go around in that department.
