Eva Kate - Four Months

This month may have been my absolute favorite for development for our sweet girl! 

January 17-February 17 were sort of chill (comparatively, anyway) and we enjoyed just being with our people this month.

Here are Eva Kate's four month stats:

That picture sums up her personality so much. She does everything "big"! Eva Kate is either wildly happy, wildly angry, wildly tired, etc....get the picture? There is no calm and mild to her personality, that is for sure! 

These big eyes slay me every night. 

Eva Kate has discovered her voice and loves to talk to everything around.  She gets really mad when you don't listen or don't understand what she is trying to tell you. It is hilarious! 

We were taking our pictures and all Eva Kate wanted to do was stand at the edge of her crib and talk to us. She was so mad that I would consider making her lay in the crib with everyone looking at her. I couldn't help but laugh! 

Our girl has decided to be slightly needy. She wants our attention, she wants to be sitting up, she wants to be playing with something, and she is all about some entertainment. This is perfect for our busy lifestyle.  

The one thing that is new that I'm not loving is that Eva Kate has decided she is too cool for her car seat. She screams the moment we put her in there. I die. It totally makes me crack up. 

We have had some insanely warm weather this winter. It has given us the opportunity to do lots of fun things! We went to the Children's Museum with some church friends and visitors. We also went to Furman to watch some sweet girls from our church play. Brittany and Emma both play Furman softball. We love the Houstons, and the Ogburns are insanely special to our family. 

 Look at this face! Yall, this is our kid 100% of the time. Full on.

Eva Kate has started to enjoy her Exersaucer and Johnny Jump Up. She also still LOVES her owl mat and swinging in her Mamaroo (but only FULL SPEED AHEAD). Miss Priss will sit in her bumbo while I make supper and loves to listen to music.

On that note, she has a new favorite song and it is HILARIOUS to watch. Eva Kate will be pitifully said...turn on [wait for it] Wagon Wheel by Darius Rucker (the old version doesn't work), and she literally giggles with glee. I think it is so funny. I never want to forget these little moments. They come and go so quickly.

Sleeping with no swaddle lasted approximately one week at the end of month three. We invested in a transition sleep sack and it has been great. Most nights, we get a stretch from 10-4 or 10-5. Praise the Lord! For a kid who hates to sleep, this is a major accomplishment.

Livi's mommy (Chelsea) went back to work this month. My mom keeps both girls on Monday and Tuesday. We've gotten lots of super cute pictures of the girlies lately! 

Micah and I share a sibling rivalry (Mom is on my side; Mack is on Micah's) when it comes to Duke and North Carolina. I am a big Duke fan and was SO excited when we pulled out a rivaly win. Eva Kate agreed; can you not tell?

We just love our girl. She loves to eat her hands and feet (and anything else she can shove in her mouth). It is funny because we went to the doctor for her 4 month checkup, and the doctor was shocked that she was rolling both ways. However, Dr. L said, "I really want you to force her to do tummy time (YUCK) and be looking for her to find her feet and bring them to her mouth soon." Literally within two days, she had that foot in her mouth in the tub. Pediatricians know :)

I can hardly even fathom that she is going to be bigger than the Moose one of these days...but for now, I'm going to cherish her being tiny! 

Miss sassy pants is our favorite girl in the world. We are thrilled each and every month with the fun new things she comes up with. Month Five is sure to bring plenty of new adventures and exciting talents. We can not wait!
