Well, we had Ella's 4 mo. checkup this past Friday. We are a couple weeks late doing it, but thats okay. She did really well. She now weighs 16.8 lbs, and is 25 1/2 inches long. She is in the 90th percentile for her height and 95th percentile for her weight. So she's right where she was 2 months ago. She also had 4 shots in the leg and had to swallow one. No pictures this time as Daddy was at work and Mommy couldn't handle taking pictures and trying to comfort her at the same time. But she screamed when she got them and as soon as it was over she was smiling away at me. She was such a brave little girl.
She's also talking up a storm. Jeremy and I swore she said da-da-da the other day. But we just love our little conversations we have with her. And she is almost rolling over. We think it'll happen any day.
As we get ready to celebrate Ella's first Christmas, we are just reminded of all the blessings we have received this year. We hope everyone has a blessed and safe Christmas and we look forward to what 2008 has in store for us. Merry Christmas to all!!
Look at these beautiful eyes she has...thanks to Daddy. Here are some pictures we took the other day. It's been a little rough in the Parker household this past week. Ella came down with bronchiolitis caused by RSV, which is NOT fun! She was having a hard time breathing so she's been doing breathing treatments to help her. Its definitely getting better, but its so hard seeing her like that. She was sleeping 10-11 hours straight but now that she's been sick she's up constantly. So we're hoping she gets back into the groove of things soon.
She's also starting to try and roll over. She'll get half way and then stop. Cereal is still a no go with her. She HATES it! I can't blame her because it even smells gross. I'm trying to mix it with some applesauce and that seems to help a little, but she really won't eat much. Also when we went to the doctor last week she weighs 16 lbs and 1 oz, so she's definitely a healthy girl. But we are very excited about the upcoming holidays. We'll post some Christmas pictures soon.
