Elijah is 4 months old!

But wait...I never even posted pictures from when he was 3 months old!! he is at 3 months old (June 16th)

And here he is from today, 4 months old!

He is getting so big! He is obsessed with his hands, and is also reaching for and playing with a few toys now. Mostly his giraffe and a moose rattle. Mara claims these are both hers, and I guess she is technically right...she did have both of them as a baby!

He loves smiling and laughing, and mostly watching Mara...she is very entertaining! He loves his jumparoo, and has even tried out his exersaucer a few times. He is constantly rolling around, and prefers to sleep on his tummy now. He is down to 4-5 bottles a day, which is nice, and he refuses to take a pacifier (which is ok, but sometimes I wish he would take one!).

The last four months have really flown by, and it's bittersweet seeing him grown and change so much!

Busy, Busy, Busy!

Life with two kids is busy! I promise to try to update more soon. Right now we're just working on getting through each week! Things are getting a lot 'easier' though, now that EJ is getting a little bigger. He is so much fun, a happy baby for the most part, laughs so loud and grins all the time! It's so sweet! He is rolling both ways, and desparately wants to sit up and stand. He has a tooth threatening to push through. He just seems so much older than he is! He will be 4 months old next week.

Mara is keeping us on our toes, as usual. She is so much fun though too, she never ceases to make us laugh! She comes up with he funniest things to say! She loves her little brother, even though she doesn't pay much attention to him sometimes. She always has to give him a hug before bed, and always needs to know what he's doing.

I will update soon with new pictures of the two of them!
