And is it possible to completely smother someone with hugs and kisses? Because if it were possible, Jade would be smothered a million times by now.
Maybe its because of these things that I could care less that she still wakes in the middle of the night needing to nurse sometimes. Maybe its because of these things that I just get tickled pink when she does wake up she just wants to smile and play for a few minutes.
Good thing hearts can't literally melt! If it were possible, mine would have been gone a long time ago!
And thank you to my wonderful, loving husband. Even though we were blessed with a daughter sooner than we expected or planned, you have been the most amazing father. Thank you for the love you pour over both Jade and I daily. Thank you for going up and down the stairs 800 times a day just to help with the "little things"... like getting my cell phone since I inevitably leave it downstairs every night, or getting a burp rag or bib since I can never seem to make it where I'm going with it in my hands. But most of all, thank you for your desire to be a Godly father and husband. Thank you for always being the leader in our household and for helping to guide my footsteps; keeping me accountable. I love you Matt!

Jade had her 4 month check-up last week. Just to confirm what everyone already knows, she is a tall and fat baby! She is completely off the charts for height, weight and head circumference. She weighs a whopping 18lbs 6oz and is 27 inches long! At least she's proportionate =).
The little stinkpot hit another big milestone about 2 weeks ago. She started eating solids. Ms. Piggy now asks for her food at the same time every night, and is doing really well with it. It is really funny to watch her face sometimes at some of the foods she doesn't like! (Which by the way, is only prunes so far. She'll eat them but makes a funny face at the first few bites!)
And just a brief re-cap on all the other adorable things she has accomplished thus far: rolling over, sitting up unassisted for brief periods of time, laughing, LOVES to look and touch patterns on any kind of material, reaching out for toys and plays with them, sleeps through the night (most of the time), holds her own bottle at Nana's house, talks non-stop for long periods of time, and props herself up when she is laying on her stomach.
Maybe that is enough bragging for one day?
