Four Months Old

I cannot believe my little man is four months old. We had his well check-up today and he just hammed it up for the doctor and nurses. He is still right around the 50th percentile in his height and weight. He weighs 14 pnds 9 oz and is 25 1/2 inches tall. His doctor says he is every bit as strong as a six month old and she will not be surprised if he is crawling soon. WHAT!! It seems like I blinked and he is four months old. He can sit in his exersaucer, put himself to sleep, eat rice cereal and applesauce, roll over from tummy to back. It seems like just yesterday he was my helpless little baby who basically slept, ate, and pooped and now he is my little Joshua. My sweet, precious, but doesn't mind to throw a temper tantrum Joshua! I hope I can cherish every moment and praise our awesome God for blessing me with such a precious son!

Out of the Mouth of Babes

I am amazed sometimes at what Alliebug says. We taught her all of the "characters" in the manger scene and their significance. However, what she says about Jesus holding her she came up with all by herself. I could not help but choke up when she said this, because I can just imagine all of the near major accidents that Allie has had around here and I picture Jesus literally holding her so that bad things will not happen to her. She says it with such confidence as if she has layed those precious little eyes on Him and felt the comfort of His embrace!

I commend you!

Ok, I commend all of you frequent bloggers who have two children or more. Honestly, I do not see how you do it. My New Years Resolution needs to be, "ORGANIZE MY TIME!" Anywho, a few things are different since I blogged last. I finally started letting my little Joshua put himself to sleep and so far SO good. He is sleeping much better at night and through the day, which makes him a much happier and content baby! He is babbling and blowing bubbles and laughing. He is getting so big and so darn cute with every passing day.
Allie is still my little sassy thing. My favorite recent quote of hers is, "O, I hurt my back, now I can't mind." And I think, "Don't see my bugers" ties. She tells me that so I won't tell her to stop picking her nose. Her new words are:
Marshpillows= Marshmallows
Grandaddy Longnecks= Grandaddy long legs
And I know there are more but I can't think of them because she is talking my ear off and trying to climb in my lap so I will have to think of them and update later!

Allie and I were playing catch. This is what she did when I told her to keep her eye on the ball!
