Ellie is 4 months old!

Sleepy boys after a full day of shopping with Mommy and Daddy

I am 4 months old and can hold my head up!

Apollos crying because he didn't like supper.

Ellie is now 4 months old!  I can't believe how fast it is going!  She is 13 lbs 11 oz (40th percentile), 23.7 inches long (25th percentile), and her head is in the 75th percentile.  She has rolled from her belly to her back a couple of times.  She is now holding her head up really well and will play on her stomach for short periods of time.  She loves to sing and coo and play with her older brothers.  She also likes to put her hands on the top of her head.  She has started on a little bit of baby food at night since she has started to wake up again.  So far she has had carrots and squash and doesn't mind either.  She is very sensitive to loud noises and gets scared easy in places she is not familiar with.  She is such a joy to have in our family!

We went to see the lights at the Shrine on Apollos' birthday.  We were inside, they got to play with Legos and make some crafts.

The whole Rapter Chase Lego set.  Apollos put almost the whole thing together by himself!

Putting together our Gingerbread Train

Khaliel just ate the candy instead of putting it on the train

One of Apollos' favorite things about going to IL is taking a bath in the Jacuzzi
