She can't be THAT old!!!

I know this is such a cliche saying, but it honestly seems like just yesterday I was looking at our sweet baby girl for the first time. Now, she is 4 1/2 months old! I think just about every day Matt and I are saying to each other "she's getting so big" or "she's getting so smart!"

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?
