Since Elynn is about to be 5 months old, I feel like I should probably finish up this 4 month post. I'm on top of my game, can't you tell?
I weighed and measured her a few weeks ago because I had big intentions of finishing this post, but clearly I can't get the hang of having 2 babies under my care (which is another story of its own).
Weight: 13 lbs
Height: 23 inches
She is still the sweetest baby EVER! She is so quiet. She is the equivalent of Uncle G while Reese is the equivalent of her daddy. This was confirmed by Adam's Aunt Bec a few weeks ago when we saw her and she mentioned that all the crying pictures of Reese on Facebook look just like her daddy used to act. I knew it all along. He was a whinner, and now I am paying the child rearing price.
Elynn still gets up one to two times a night to eat. She only takes a bottle at daycare, and she isn't at all crazy about them. I see some major wheening issues in our future. She doesn't love a paci, and rarely uses it as anything other than a chew toy.Preaching puts her right to sleep.
On February 3rd she went to daycare for the first time. I had no worries since her big sissy was there to watch out for her. (Anytime Elynn cries Reese insists, "her wants her to big sissy to hold her." By the way Elynn tenses up when Reese is around, I've got my doubts about that.")
Seriously though...about the sister thing. Elynn LOVES Reese. Reese can make her laugh out loud just by singing to her. Reese has a Barbie movie that has a song that says "Although she's a princess, she doesn't need a crown. Although she's a princess, she'll turn the world around." Reese sings it to Elynn all the time and Elynn thinks it's the funniest thing. Of course when Reese sings it she say, "aldough hwr's a pwincess, hwr doesn't need a cwown." Before we had kids I would have probably said I wanted a boy and girl, cause, ya know...that's like the American way. But let me go on record for saying that I am so thankful that God knew better. I will speak for Adam when I say that we adore having 2 girls. I am so glad that they will always have each other, and I pray (real hard) that they keep on loving each other so much.
