Haven 3-4 months

Could I be anymore behind on updates? I was waiting, and waiting to do a 3 month update and now she is 4 months! So of course lots of things have changed. She had her 4 month check up this week. She was close to 13 lbs. I want to say 12lbs 11oz but I'm unsure exactly. About 2 lbs bigger than Emerson at this age.  But, not huge by any means. I have no idea on the length. But, I know for certain her once pants are now capris. She has changed a lot in the last month or so. One development is the ability to grab things. It kind of hit me by surprised when I was holding her in the kitchen and a tiny fist knocked my bowl in the floor. Now, she grabs at everything. My hair is no longer safe. She has been enjoying the baby gym but is getting irritated she can't pull the toys off that are attached. Little miss is not rolling over yet. I'm not complaining, as it's nice to have a baby be non-mobile for the moment. She has no interest in being on her belly. She does like to be on her back and kick her legs like crazy. Haven has a very social personality. She loves to be in the middle of conversation and grins at everyone. She has started chuckling and finds Emerson hilarious. She even has a tickle spot. I’m sure everyone thinks they have the most adorable baby, but I’m pretty sure Haven might be.  I’m mean seriously she has the most joyous smile. 
This is a funny peak at her personality. On the left, I'm entertaining her. She wasn't impressed. On the right, Emerson did something silly. 

The scowl, and the chuckle.

Emerson at the same age.

Emerson is five years old! An official school age kid, not a preschooler anymore. She was so thrilled for her birthday. Her birthday request…to get her ears pierced! She was pretty adamant that she wanted them done even though it hurts. I would love to say there were no tears but overall she got past the pain pretty quickly. Five minutes later she was over the moon with her new flower earrings!

She loves her sister! Don't worry not a black eye. Marker. :)

A little bit about Emerson right now. She is a talkative, bubbly gal. Inquisitive, and relentlessly asks why. Emerson loves to play with dolls, barbies, and her favorite thing is dressing up her stuffed animals. She is very focused in accessorizing them. Earrings, hats, and hair bows. She loves to dress herself and combine different patterns and layer. Her favorite thing to do is draw. She spends a couple hours a day creating her master pieces. Emerson has a great eye for color combination. Because of her perfectionist tendencies she gets frustrated when things aren't quite right. I remind here that drawing takes practice. She is both particular yet carefree. She loves to be around people and making new friends. If you had told me 3 years ago how much this child would be eating I wouldn't have believed it. She is a huge veggie and fruit lover. Likely the healthiest eater in our house. She's growing up fast. I can't wait to see what the future holds for her!
