Four Months

Emily is almost 5 months old, so I figured it was time for an update on our petite little lass.  First of all, look at the picture above here.  Emily started on rice cereal a couple weeks ago.  The first time she ate it, this was her reaction.  She was tired, teething, and it was just a bad time to try something new.  We waited a few days, and it was a hit!  Since then, every time she gets in the seat, her eyes get wide and she looks around expectantly.  Then when the bib goes on, she starts hopping up and down (kind of) in her seat and laughing.  Yeah, she likes eating.  And Andrew thought it was pretty funny that she was eating with a spoon.
 She is growing so fast, although she's still our tiny girl!  She had a doctor's appointment today and her first shot. :(  She was a brave girl, though and only cried for a second.  Here are her stats:
Height - 25" (50th percentile)
Weight - 13 lbs 1 oz (24th percentile)
 She is such a sweet little pleasant baby.  She lights up whenever she sees her Mommy or Daddy, and avsolutely loves to watch her big brother.  Since she's been eating rice cereal, it seems like she has been sleeping better.  Last night she slept from 9:30 to 11 and then 11:30 until 6:45!  She is such a good little baby.
It's hard to believe Emily hasn't always been in our family.  She fits in so perfectly, and we just love her to bits!
