4 Months

Look who just turned four... four months that is! There are so many things that I am learning with this bundle of joy. Each day I am shocked by how smart she is. She is so pleasant and curious. She is always listening and looking at every little thing around her. She knows exactly what she wants and when she wants it. It's my job to just figure it out. I feel like it has only gotten so much easier with time. We are now on somewhat of a schedule and it is pretty nice. The golden question that everybody asks is "Does she sleep through the night?" The answer is "Ha Ha Ha, No" This little one loves that milk all night long :) She sleeps from 7:30pm to 7:30am and usually eats 3 times within the 12 hours but goes right back to sleep. I guess it works out pretty well. I've enjoyed a little quiet time in the evenings lately. 

We are so lucky to have such a happy baby. She smiles all day long. Lately she has starting to roll from her tummy to her back, and she is more active than ever! Shane and I decided that if we kicked and rolled around in the floor as much as she does, we would have abs of steel!

We went to the Doctor today... Here are Anabelle's stats
25 1/2 inches tall (90%)
13 lbs 9 oz (50%)
and her head is 16 in (45%)

Here she is cheese'n it. Shane says she has a little bashful smile, when she gets happy as we talk to her...Oh I love those chubby cheeks.
 Anabelle loves playing, kicking, hitting, grabbing, pulling, and eating her animal friends.

 One of the 261 old ladies in our Relief Society told me on Sunday that little babies are the flowers in our lives. So true! Babies make everybody smile. I take her with me, and everybody just smiles at us all day long. It's great! Here's our growing flower. She loves playing with her hands and clapping those feet.

And last but not least... Here is Daddy... our workin' fool :) Shane recently started his new job at Tanner. I have always called him the candy man, but now he is the tax man. He is so busy working and studying for the CPA Exams. He has a CPA class every Saturday from 8-5 until November. This past Saturday we went to have lunch with him on his lunch break. He is doing so much, and I'm not sure how.  Amidst all the business and busy-ness, he always finds time for his girls. Anabelle and I are so lucky to have such and good man in our lives. I am overwhelmed with gratitude and love for my beautiful little family!

Back Before Our Time

I recently saw this picture for the first time and I love it!... It is a picture of our parents, before we were born. They went on a river rafting trip in the Grand Canyon. Shane's parents are on the left and my parents are on the right. I think it is so awesome to see them in a picture together at our age. Look at all that leg! ha ha

Cousin Time

We had a birthday BBQ for Grandma Ruby this week. It was so fun to see all the family and spend some time visiting. I took my camera because I wanted to get some pictures, but unfortunately I left the battery at home charging in the wall. It was a lot of fun to see Anabelle's cousins. Here are the three little girls. Anabelle (in the blue, if you can't tell) is 3 1/2 months, Kaylee (in the pink) is 3 months, and London (in the yellow) is 3 weeks. Unfortunately it is not the best photo (taken from the i touch) but aren't they so cute... It is crazy how they grow so fast, Anabelle is a giant next to little London.
