You know how there is just not much better than the sound of your sweet baby laughing? Well, we needed to get it on film. Unfortunately we never remember to film it when both of us are around, so yesterday I just had do it myself. So the whole video is just the fuzzy side of her head. But just listen!! Ohhh, it melts my heart!

We made this video before Christmas, and it just cracks me up. Noah has recently discovered the concept of asking Josh to video tape him doing something, and then watching it. What is so strange is that he wants to just talk - its so funny. What I love about this video is Wyatt - if you notice he just kind of mumbles everything Noah says a few seconds after him. He so desperately wants to be just like his big brother. So cute!

Can't you just feel the love? This little boy wants to hold his sister nearly a thousand times a day. He adores her. And the feeling is mutual. Every single morning he comes in and watches while I dress Annie, and then he insists that he needs to sit with her, where he loves on her and tells her how beautiful she looks. He also gives his opinion on what bow she should wear that day. How much longer do you think this will go on?

This past week I was really noticing that I maybe her head was getting really big. Kind of Noah J big. But when you see them all day every day it is really hard to tell. But then I met this woman with a 5 month old baby and I was SHOCKED to see how tiny her head was. And the more I thought about it, the more I realized that her head was probably normal and Annie muffin is the large one! Sure enough, today at her 4 month check up her head was in the 92%!!! I *think* that might be higher than what Noah was. But it seems to be differently shaped, so I guess that's why I don't notice it as much.

FYI, we studied gravity and Galileo this week, so they were dropping objects to see which hit the ground first. A LOUD experiment (there was a cookie sheet on the floor)!!! :)

Annie is really not so sure about it. So far no smiles in it, but she does seem to enjoy hanging out in it a few times a day. You can see she is pretty mesmerized by the little toys on the front, but hasn't figured out the jumping.
Remember when they were just wee little things playing in this thing?

Night number two is always worse, so I was expecting chaos, and chaos is what I got. She screamed and cried immediately and Josh and I kept going back in every three or four minutes to pat/shhh and comfort her. But she was having nothing to do with it. I finally went in and picked her up and she was just so worked up and couldn't catch her breath that the child puked all over me. Well, me and the glider. I was pretty much done at that point so we changed her and then let her go to the swing for a bit. After she fell asleep we transferred her over and haven't have a problem since. Now, I know we're still dependent on the swing, but at least she is in her own bed. Josh and I are finally able to snuggle up at night for the first time in over a year! Don't even think about snuggling with me while preggo! :)
I couldn't get any good pics of her asleep, so I tried to get one during a nap, but Josh had the lens that doesn't zoom on the camera and I couldn't get far enough away! But you can see her little cute self. That was the only time I have caught her asleep in that position. Every single night this week she sleeps flat on her back with her hands behind her head. She totally looks like she is about to do a sit up! So sweet!
I'm a little afraid she will never sleep through the night. She consumes such small amounts of formula during the day that I know her body depends on this night feedings just to hold steady. I cannot see a time in the near future where I think she will be ready to drop the night feeds. Agghhh! I keep convincing myself that by the time she turns one we will be good to go. That's less than a year away, right? :)

We had a great, great day! Our first Christmas as a family of 5 was amazing and I loved every minute of it! I'm so thankful for this bunch of people, and as Noah would say, "we have the bestest family!"
