Happy 4 months

~Emersyn Kate~
This is probably one of my 5 favorite pics that I've taken of my kids.  I just love how sweet and cute you look.  

Happy 4 months!   I know I say it every month, but time is FLYING by!  You are still such a lovely, sweet, laid back baby.  You are squeeking and squawking a lot lately and smile really easily.  You love your bouncer and play mat.  You also love to lay against my chest or be turned around and watch people.  I think you hit your 4 month growth spurt because you have been eating a lot these past couple of days and not sleeping as well.  You have to have something in your mouth all the time - your paci, your hands, a toy, name it and you try and put it in your mouth.   You still wear size 1 diaper and a few 0-3 month clothes, but mostly 3-6 month.  You weigh: 13 lbs 4 oz = 40% Your length:  25.5" = 81%   Your head:  70%.  You are long and skinny.   Hudson was 13 lbs 15 oz and 24" and Beckett was 15 lbs 2 oz and 25.5".  Sadly, you had a double ear infection at your appt today, so you got your 1st antibiotic.  Thankfully, you're pretty tough, we really didn't know you were sick - you have a slight runny nose, but that's it.
Your eyes are still a really pretty navy blue and icy blue in the middle.  Still strawberry blonde/red hair.  Naps are not so great.  You've been doing 3 20-30 min naps, every now and then you'll give me a big 2-3 hr nap.  You definitely like being swaddled.  You are pretty set on going to be at 7:30, if it's much later than that, you tend to start losing it - the only real time you really cry.

You just started flipping from your back to your stomach.  One morning you did it and have continued to do it ever since.
My nurse manager from Indiana was an amazing manager, nurse, and such a sweet person.  We've kept in touch some through facebook.  She has gotten all 3 of you kids these super soft, cute blankets.   So kind and sweet of her!!  My friend, Sheri, got you this super cute headband.  I've definitely adopted the southern mantra "The bigger the bow, the better the Mama"
This was the best picture I could get with the teddy bear - half a smile so I moved on
My friend, Ashley, gave me this sweet dress - all 3 of her daughters wore it.
It's funny - you are all smiles and pure sweetness all the time, but the second I pull the camera out, you turn kind of serious
I love this outfit and the color on you
Your brothers still adore you and want to hold you a lot.  I was trying to move fast with pictures and I didn't have the lighting quite right.  I might need to try and re-take them.  
This dress and headband remind me of the movie Frozen

There's something sweet about this picture that I really like.  Thankfully you're so easy going that you don't mind me treating you like a baby doll and constantly changing your clothes.  And I just can't kiss you enough, you're just so cuddly and kissable  

You are our sweet precious gift from God!  We love you so much!  I love documenting things about you, it definitely makes me stop and take even more time to be thankful for all my kids.  Your middle name, Kate, means Pure and that's one of the bible verses I've prayed over you since I was pregnant, long before we knew what your name was going to be -  Philippians 4:8  "Whatever is true, noble, pure, trustworthy, lovely, admirable, excellent or praiseworthy,  think of these things"
We love you, our sweet, precious girl!
Love, Mommy & Daddy

The boys tend to be with us when we're taking pictures and we're usually dodging some kind of ball -I caught this ball midair flying at you.
The boys are supposed to stay off the blanket, but Beckett snuck right in
Of course, Hudson wanted in on a picture, too
You did not like being in the itcy grass
