4 months old

Taylor turned 4 months old on Sunday and had her checkup this morning.  She's in the bottom 4% for height and weight, at 23 inches and 11lbs 8oz respectively.  Doctor Selzer said she looks great but can't be expected to sleep through the night until about 15 pounds so we've still got a ways to go (dr estimates another 3 months).

Frozen is here.  Guess what we will be watching for the rest the day.

4 months old

Taylor turns 4 months old today.  We couldn't love her more.  She smiles and makes great eye contact and is starting to coo and try to talk back to you.  Still not sleeping through the night but she's cute enough I can almost forgive her.

This morning Allison got a haircut.  Not much of a trim, just cleaning up the edges. She did very well.

Last night we went to a minor league hockey game and it was Star Wars night.

Rodeo day at school

We love rodeo day at school.  Allison had fun with the dance lessons and crafts but her favorite part is always the horses.  Can't wait until she starts riding lessons!

Kissing the horse's nose!

Show me the money

Allison's current goal in life is to own a set of Frozen figurines - about $30.  Since that's not in the mommy gift range and we are still several months from birthday Allison has started doing chores to earn her toy.  Last night he picked up the living room and today she cleaned off her toy table.  I'm hoping to get her to wipe down baseboards but that may be a long shot!  Here's a photo of her counting and sorting her money.  I've told her when her piggy bank is full she will have enough to buy her toy.  

Turn it up

In the car today Allison asked me to "turn it (the radio) up so I can learn the words".  Of course it was a Taylor Swift song playing.

Snow Day

We are having a lazy snow day morning.  Hot chocolate and Jammie's.  Love my girls.

Dress up

We're in Lufkin this weekend and Allison found some dress up clothes.  I can only guess this was from one of Stacey's dance recitals, but Allison thinks she's a princess.  She ran down to show us then asked Kevin "daddy, will you come upstairs and be my prince?"  No word on what Cathy and Sherry have to be - fairy godmother or evil step-something's.
