Nora Kate is 4 Months!

I know I say it every month, but I can't believe Nora Kate is already 4 months old! It really seems like she should only be about 2 months, tops!  She is an absolute joy and we are so blessed to have her as a part of our family! 

Can't do a photo shoot without a little pic with sis!
 This month has been a month of exciting changes and developments for you!  You have gained some serious strength and head control!  You love being held up so you can look around.  Your little head does this funny little bobble that looks like you are constantly nodding.  We think it is so funny!  You have also started rolling over!  You rolled from your belly to your back a few days after turning 3 months, but last week you went from back to belly!  We are so excited to watch you experience these milestones!  You are cooing and laughing for us now and we love that sound.  You don't give out laughs freely though, we really have to earn them!  You do give out smiles all the time though.  You are very social and don't like to be alone.  A lady in Hobby Lobby was talking to you and when she walked away, you started crying so hard like she hurt your feelings by not talking to you anymore.  You are starting to not love the car and I think it is because you feel alone.  We went to the doctor this week and you weigh 12 pounds 6.5 ounces (13th percentile) and you are 24 inches long (27th percentile).  You are a giant! :)  You have begun putting everything in your mouth and you still love your thumb, but I promise, Mommy will keep fighting that battle!  Your favorite toys have become the rattle socks.  When I put them on you start kicking like crazy, it is so funny to watch!  Ms. Martha gave you the green light to try rice cereal so we will begin that soon.  Your sleeping hasn't been as consistent lately but we are working on it!  You are pleasant even in the middle of the night, which is appreciated.  You are at such a fun age, I can't wait to see what all you begin doing in the next month.  Here are a few highlights from this month:
You have started liking Daddy more!  At first, you preferred Mommy, but lately you look for him and will go to him anytime.  This is very helpful!
 You are constantly smiling which we love!
 Your sister was so excited when you both had "twinkle toe" jammies on and insisted on taking a picture!
 Loving your silly socks!
 You are a super morning person and wake up with a smile every day.  I wish I could do this!
 You became a LalaLoopsy!
 You jumped in your bouncer for the first time and loved it!
 AND you have learned to stick out your tongue!
Happy 4 month birthday Nora Kate!  We love you.
